Question about Power Acoustik LT-980/2 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Behringer Bxl3000 So I bought this amp about a month ago, and it worked fine for awhile but one night I turned up the music too loud, and It started cracking and quit. I turned the whole thing off, then after a minute or two, turned it back on. It was fine at low volumes, but then i slowly turned it up and it cracked and stopped putting out sound completely. When I turn it on, the lights all work, and when i talk into the mic, the lights flicker like they're supposed to(the more power used, the dimmer the light) but no sound. I took off the grill, and unscrewed the speaker. I then unplugged the speaker from the power board. I tested the speaker's current, and it only came about a quarter of the way up the scale. I'm guessing it's the speaker. If so what do I do? Should I get a new speaker or can I fix the one I have. Thanks

Friend be sure that you got the right current in your speaker, if you do as you have said it is only a quarter of the way up the scale, Try this: try a lower speaker ohmic value, if there is an available ohmic value next to the speaker you are using now. Test it the way you do to the spreaker you are using now.
Try also to recheck the current in your speaker, if reading is now different, compare it to your manual. If it it below the manual try to connect a speaker with lower ohmic value, if its above, connect a speaker with a higher ohmic value.
P.S. please don't forget to rate.

Not functioning..

I would check it with a different instrument cable AND bass guitar. If you end up with the same results, it's a thermal issue with the amp and will require factory authorized repair. The amp heats up and the intermittent component starts failing....more heat, more failure. It's not an easy fix and your Behringer repair shop will have their work cut out for them with this repair.

No sound out of Behringer BXL3000 speaker

Suspected Faulty PC board Dead Capacitor Or Mod Pot I would suggest returning it for an exchange the problem is your speaker will work on a regular stereo because a stereo powers the sound internally causing the magnets in the speaker to vibrate Headphone jacks are designed to pick up off a seperate circuit board with a different connection to the main board hence the no sound from the speaker.

Foot switch appears to be wired backwards. The Shape pedal turns on the UtraBass and the UltraBass pedal turns on the Shape (Channel 2).

Foot pedals are usually NOT interchangeable... The correct footswitch would come with the amp so be sure it says Behringer on on the footswitch. Apparently some sellers have foisted off VOX footswitches which may not work with the Berhinger.

As soon as I turn the volume over approximately 40W, the speaker keeps moving while making an awful sound at the same rhythm. I believe the speak may be burned. Is there a way I can fix it or I have to...

How do you know you are at 40 WATTS? This takes electronic test equipment to measure.
Tests to run. Observe the speaker cone with power off. Now turn it on... did it displace and stay there? If so you have a failure of the amplifier itself. Next, If you can place finger on the cone, move it gently in and out feeling for any roughness. If you feel roughness, the voice coil is fried and you be buying new speaker. A lot of the Ultra bass Behringer's use LM3886 power amp chips... sometimes in parallel, and a failure of one could cause this.

I bought a behringer bxl3000t yesterday and when I plug it to the wall it gives me a pretty big noise, even when the bass is not plugged in, If I turn the amp on without anything plugged and all the knobs...

Since you just bought this, exercise your warranty (assuming you bought this new). The amp probably will have a slight buzz with nothing connected... the question is how loud it is. If you can hear it loud at five feet, that is too much. If you bought this used, prepare to have it serviced at a shop.

The amp turns and everything but it doesnt pick up sound. the day it busted it wasnt as loud as it used to usually i could put it on 4 and drown out my guitarists but i put it on full blast and it was...

Most of these use two stick type amplifiers driving the speaker in what is called "bridged mode". If one of the sticks fails, the unit will do what you are observing. Unless you are adept at electronic repair this is NOT DIY.

Here is a BX1200 that uses a pair of LM3886's in parallel rather than bridged mode as it is a smaller unit. You will find simularities though. Your unit will either use the 3886's of possibly either TDA7293's or TDA7294's.

Behringer's Ultrabass BXL3000 Gain knob broken

You need to replace the potentiometer with the broken shaft. You can open the unit and try to get a part number or go to Behringer parts to get an exact replacement. The pot must be matched for value, taper, and mounting and shaft dimensions.
