Question about Rockford Fosgate P3001 Car Audio Amplifier

Air conditioning condensation and speakers

My car was leaking water from under condenser tray. Speakers started crackling and then no sound at all. Radio appears to be functioning as it will still play a CD (no sound) and also the clock is still illuminated as well. My guess is the water did something to the speaker or speakers. I have 9 of them. My car is a 2006 Nissan Sentra Special Edition. I don't know the model #. It's just the system that has 300 watt amplifier and 9 speakers including subwoofer. Thanks

    Shuttle83...thanks for the advice. It sounds like you know your stuff. I was hoping to buy some cheap speakers from Walmart and check it myself. It sounds like it may be a little complicated for me to handle. The Nissan dealership said they would send it to the manufacturer and it would cost between $250.00 and $450.00 to find the problem, and then Nissan would charge me $89.00 to put it back in. I really can't afford that, and I was told by a audio place that it could be expensive trying to figure out what's wrong. It sounds like I am in a bad spot here. I will see what I can find out though. Thanks again.....lasvegaslvr

Check for audio from the radio. Hook up some test speakers and make sure the radio is working. If not then your last stage audio amplifier might be defective. also test you after-market amp by injecting audio into in and see if it is still functioning. If the radio is not working and the after-market amp is then the radio is the problem and its internal amplifier will have to be replaced. If the radio works and the after-market amp does not then the after-market amp will have to be repaired. I would suggest getting this testing done by a professional auto-sound shop, to make sure the proper testing is done.

I hope this helps,

Hi there, have a Hisense fridge model hr6tff526(s) which is leaking water from the inside,looks like its coming from the top where the fan is located.thx


Hi Kassem

It's probably just condensation water like what you get under an air conditioned car in the summer.

Usually in a Fridge they collect the condensed water and run it down a clear hose pipe to a plastic container at the bottom rear of a fridge.
This pipe can become blocked with food & junk & mould, mice etc.
Find one end and clear the obstruction. A flexible rod or wire or air burst.
Cheers

Water is leaking on passenger side running by fuse box how to fist problem On 2010 impala water seems to be coming from top of windshield


Most likely it is the condensation from the air condition building up. There is a small tube under the car that the condensation is supposed to drain through, but it is easy for the tube to get clogged by debris causing the condensation to overflow onto the floor inside. The best way to clear it out is to go under the car and locate the tube, it will be on the passenger side underneath. Use compressed air to blow the debris out of the tube.

PAC CT-90 Air conditioner My CT90 is leaking


When you air condition, you essentially remove heat from the "inside air" and transfer it to the "outside air". from a google search this thing is sort of like a window air conditioner, but the hot air is sent outside via a vent hose, so the unit can be located away from the window. Any time you cool air, it holds less water, so depending on the humidity, there will be condensate formed, the question is, how is it dealt with. In window air conditioners, you see it dripping from the back side when it is running. For your unit, is it unclear how the condensate is being removed; maybe hot air going outside is directed across where the condensate collects and it is assumed it will evaporate and be vented outside as vapor? First, check and see if the unit is still under warrantee, if so, contact them and see how to get it fixed (if you mess with it, it might void the warrantee). If it has expired or the company is out of business, etc, you can try opening it up and see what is going on. The water collects under the evaporator (the fins where cold air comes out). Underneath there should be some kind of tray or something that collects the condensate and directs it somewhere in the unit for it to be gotten rid of. I'm thinking something is cracked, leaking or come loose, letting the water escape and run out. If that is the case, you might be able to use silicone seal or something like it to seal the leak. Hopefully, it is something simple like that.

My whirlpool refrigerator Model ET18PKX6W00 leaks water under vegetable bins


Check behind the bins for a condensation tray/hose. Most refrigerators have these as they develop condensation due to the temperature differences when opening and closing the door. The tray catches the condensation, and drains it to a tray under the fridge. Here it evaporates when the compressor runs. Sometimes things block the tray or the hose gets clogged with gunk. clean out the tray/hose and hopefully your problem will end.

There is water leaking out from the bottom of my furnace. It leaks whenever the ac is running.


Hello, sounds like a clogged condensate line or a faulty condensate pump if the unit has one. Cleaning the drain line should fix the problem.

Condensation problem!


All electronics have a recommended operating temperature range. This information can be found in your instruction manual.

Here is a possible remedy to your problem. Condensation forms when air temperature is cold AND there is moisture in the air. Protect your amp from this moist environment, and you're less likely to encounter condensation issues. You did not mention where the amplifier is located, so i will assume that it is in the most common installation area - the trunk. Is your trunk sealing properly? Do you have any standing water in the trunk or water leaking into the trunk? If so, correct this and you should be fine. Otherwise, installing a small fan near the amp can draw moisture away from it and help dry this air out - thus preventing condensation from forming.
