Question about Jl Audio 1000/1 Car Audio Amplifier
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.
