Question about Jl Audio 1000/1 Car Audio Amplifier

Fuse keeps blowing when sub volume is turned up

I have a JL 1000/1 powering a 13.5 w7 runing 4GA with a 100 AMP fuse and a 4F cap, i also have a good ground. The system works fine, but when i turn my subwoofer output up on my head unit it hits real hard for a good 10 to 15 min, before the fuse blows. the amp warms up as usual, nothing to hot. should i swap out the 4GA cabel to a 0GA? will this most likely solve my problem? i purchased the sub from a jl retailer and the amp i got from indoaudio.

The amp draw rating on the amp is 100 you need to put a larger fuse in, such as a 150 amp, it would be a good idea to go to 0 ga but not needed. you might also want to upgrade your altenator.

Thicker wire, and make sure the connections are good and tight. Use high quality high copper wire and make sure the ground is as short as possible, and that you are grounding it to the chassis properly, as in sanded, clean and tight, and short as possible.

I would recommend that you go to a zero gauge wire if you up the fuse to 150. The current that you will draw is also going to increase and will cause the wire to get warm if not melt if you stay at 4 gauge. Remember, when you increase the fuse rating, it allows more current to go through the wire.

The thicker wire is a great idea. the draw rating on the jl 1000/1 is not 100 amps. its 75amps. but, if you have another amp in the vehicle for other speakers, you will then need to have a larger fuse.

I have a 900 watt amp wired to 2 mtx 12's. it powers up fine but when the bass hits the power light fades away


Try using a 4ga ground cable. Ground it to the frame of your car. And use a 2ga and a inline fuse 100amp run this to your battery. And you need a cap. A 1000 watt will work good. Hope this helps....

I have a JL 1000/1 and the low ohm light switch on and off.. The terminal connector is slightly loose.. with a jiggle of the ground wire the amp switch back to GREEN and plays normal..


Check the ground wire to the car make sure that you have bare metal and that the contact between the car and the wire is good. Ensure that the ground wire is in all the way. What size ground wire are you using. I would say don't use smaller than 4ga for a 1000 watt amps.
Also has the amp been screwed or velcroed to the box? Sometimes amp connections become loose from the vibrations of the bass. So it's possible it might be an internal issue or that the wire isn't in all the way.
I would suggest also taking the amp completely out of the car and inspecting the terminals to make sure they aren't loose or corroded.

I have a 1000/1 amp running two W6s in my truck along with a 300/ going strictly to my highs, i also have a capacitor for 1000 that only runs for the 1000/ amp and a JL audio 100 amp fuse for all of it....


You need to get another capacitor and wire it in series with the fist cap when you crank the volume your system is not getting enough power from the alternator this is called surge current. In modern electrical systems we use capacitors to compensate for these surges.

It is NEVER a good idea to increase the values of fuses . Chances are you have internally damaged your amp. The next time you are faced with this problem you need to find out why your amp is blowing fuses and not keep changing the value of the fuse.

I have a jl 10001, when i turn it up its cutting off saying low voltage. I'm running 4 guage wire do i need to go bigger?


Try using a capacitor and make sure you have a fused (+) directly to the battery post that is routed as short as possible. Ground wire should be short enough from a clear and clean body part. Try lowering down your output gain so it won't clip the system.

Jl 1000\1 v2 and 13 w7


it depends on how you wired your 13 w7 did you wire the dual voice coils up or down?? the w7 comes with a book and it has the 1000/1 settings you need and then there is a guide that comes with your 1000/1 v2 and on page 14 it tells you how to set the gain accordingly to your ohm load for perfect sounds with little to no gain overlap (you can set the gain louder if you don't want maximum sq and are not worried about clipping cause a 1000/1 shouldn't blow a 13 w7 from overpowering only from clipping (and since the w7 are practically bullet proof clipping takes a long time)

Blown fuse


What size fuse are you using?

Have you checked the speaker to determine if it's damaged?

Do the speaker and amp produce clean sound up to the point where the fuse blows?
