I have an scoshe 500k miro farad 1500w peak compositor, with a 1000w 2 way power acoustic amp, and my compositor is reading 0.0 on the read out gauge. i check all grounds and unhooked the battery and repaced the fuse. yet it still reades 0.0 flashing. this has never happened its brand new, worked yesterday, i took out the fuse to lad around them replaced it and now it reads 0.0, usuly running it reads 14.7. could realy use some help on this one.

If all of the components are reading ok then you need a timer. Touch your 2 leads together. 0 ohms rght. That means you have a complete circuit.If you get the 0 reading then the element must be otay. Bad timer. Take that fancy meater of yours and atttach one of them leads to the timer leg marked RH. Yank the wire off the terminal beore you test. Move the timer around. You should get the famous 0 reading along the way. If you don't then that means you have the bad timer.

SOURCE: My Amp Keeps shutting off

You need to get an amp with higher wattage. Obviously, your amp cannot handle those two 10" monsters. hehe Nice Subs though :D

SOURCE: oil pressure reading in 2003 gmc envoy

No problem with the oil pressure, the norm is between 40 to 60. Anything lower then 40 you have low oil pressure and anything above 60 then you have high oil pressure which is caused by a blockage in the system.
What is common is the oil pressure gage fluctuating for the first 200 miles if the oil pressure sending unit is getting worn. Good maintenance will keep the engine clean and running good but the oil pressure sending unit is inexpensive and easy to replace. Next time you do an oil change you can have them change the sending unit.
Good luck and hope this helps. You can pick up the sending unit at Auto Zone and most auto parts store and will have the step by step to replacing it. If you do attempt to replace it. make sure you DO NOT USE any Teflon tape or silicon on the threads, they are tapered and need a good ground to the engine for proper readings.

SOURCE: battery test proper voltage, new alternator test

If you test battery with a load test it will probably fail. Battery is bad. Also have alternator tested. Go to any parts store, even walmart they all test for free. I would put my money on bad battery. Cells getting weak.

SOURCE: when my bass hits, my car lights flicker.

Is the problem much more noticeable when the car is at idle? Double check that Alternator output. 70 amps is not high output, and if the problem is especially noticeable at idle, it's probably due to the alternator putting out lower voltage( a common thing with alternators). Also, with that much draw from your sub amp, the wire from battery to alternator should be beefed up, as well as the ground wire from battery. You can make up your own cables by purchasing the wire to length and wire lugs at a local Welding shop, 4 gauge from alternator to battery is good. High output aftermarket Alternators shoot into the 200 amp range.

Anyone know what the rms is per channel on xr-3693 1000w amp? Is it 250 apiece? And if i bridge sub..will that make it at 500rms?


I would assume this is 1000W peak-to-peak, so divide by 2.83 = 350 rms, or 88W rms per channel.

See link for bridging information:

How do you hook up scosche 500k micro farad digital stiffening capacitor? Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you_hook_up_scosche_500k_micro_farad_digital_stiffening_capacitor


you hook it up like a battery. positive to positive supply, and negative to negative supply, or ground. it may require a remote turn-on from a head unit, if there is a digital display on it. usually, it is the tiny screw, that looks like it holds the plastic cover on.

I NEED YO KNOW HOW TO HOOK UP A MICRA FARAD 500K


When I used to do this, I would run the power wire from the battery to the Capacitor and then run power wires to said amp. For the crossover, just run an 16 or 18ga wire to one of the Amps power input instead of running it to the cap if its easier. Not sure what Crossover you have, So check the manual for the correct wire size!

My inverter 1000w is not working.


Sadly replacement is the best option.

The better inverters are a pure-sine wave would recommend a 1500w it is better quality and will be a better replacement for you 1000w.

Hope this tip helps.

Describe how to connect a scosche 500k micro farad


Put the capactior in parallel with your battery right before the amplifier. So Postive lead of cap to your 12 Volt line and negative lead goes to ground. It is also suggested that you charge the cap before placing it directly in parallel with the 12 volt rail. yo ucan do this by using a 1000 ohm resistor with a power rating of 1 watt. Disconnect your amplifiers so it is just your cap and battery. Replace the fuse with the 1000 ohm resistor. Once the resistor is in place hook up your cap. It will take a little bit for it to charge. RC time constant is T = Reistance X Capacitance. So 1000 ohms X .5 Farads = is about 8 minutes, or you can just measure the voltage with an volt meter and when the cap reads 12VDC you can then hook it up. BE CAREFUL NOT TO SHORT TERMINALS. THIS CAPACITOR I STORING A LOT OF CHARGE.

Amp turns off for a bit and back on when it hits hard


You do not have enough power coming from our car battery, your alt. may be going out. Look into a 5 farad power cap to store more power...

Trace inverter high AC voltage


Not to worry. First thing is you are probably not using a true RMS volt meter. You are reading an average voltage of peak. You have a sine wave inverter. The RV 2012 has a peak of 164 volts. I could go into much more tech detail but may confuse you. If you want to learn more her is a link from my dealer tech sheets. Also if you have checked voltage in a float state it will read high.
Hope this helps you

Electricity cost per hour


1500w / 1000w = 1.5 kwh. Every hour you run (assuming it is at 100% peak power) you use 1.5 kw. Just multiply that rate by how much it your power company charges per kwh.

Estimating high at 10 cents per kwh it would be $1 for every 10 hours you run the heater, or $2.40 per day, or about $72 per month if you ran it 24/7 for 30 days.

It is FAR cheaper to use these types heaters to heat one small room than an entire apartment or house if you are only in one room the majority of the time.
