Question about Jl Audio 1000/1 Car Audio Amplifier
Whenever the amp is powered on the yellow "low Ohm" light comes on and stays on, have now wired up two sets of JL Audio 12W6v2's. One is my brothers configuration in his truck. The other is my personal set that has had no issues before.
Check the resistance between the positive and negative terminals of the speakers. There should be atleast 1 ohm of reistance depending on your set up... if there is very little there is a short in your wiring. If not remove the wires from the amp and now check the resistance between the termanls on the amp...there should be no condinuity...if there is your amp has short circited out.

Tips for a great answer:

1000 W RMS @ 1.5 ohm - 4 ohm (11V-14.5V)
THD at Rated Power:
<0.05% @ 4 ohm
>95dB below rated power (A-weighted, 20 Hz - 20 kHz noise bandwidth)
5 Hz - 250 Hz (+0, -1dB)
>500 @ 4 ohm / 50 Hz
According to the chart your amp is only stable down to 1.5 Ohms, so running at .75 Ohms the noise you are hearing is the amp clipping (running more power than it can handle at low ohms)
I would suggest wiring it in series, or you could adjust the gain on the amp until the popping goes away.
Hope this helps.
