Amp cutting out
4 replies to this topic

I just purchased a set of: JBL GTO1002D 10" subs, 250 watts/1k peak Powered by a JL E1400D In my brand new: Suzuki Verona (2006) (4door/v6) First off, it sounds great on bass heavy stuff and rock alike, but when I really crank the system it seems I"m not getting enough current to my amp. Especially at idling speeds, I've checked the wires myself and they all seam intact (Not sure about the grounding) but I'm going to head back to the shop today and see what they think. I figured I"d end up spending more money on something like Capacitors, or an Audio MADCAP car battery (Or something like that). What my question is, if it's handling the extreme bass cranked (With obvious dash flicker) but cutting out on occaision, do you think Capacitors would be enough? (Since they can't provide more power, just make it more accurate) or would I have to shove out the extra for the Audio battery thing? Thanks, Anicrow

You may have the gain turned up too high. Turn it down and try things again.

Capacitors are a band-aide to the problem. I would guess that your alternator isn't up to snuff, given that your dash lights are flickering at idle speed. Best to fix the problem rather than using a band-aide.

Capacitors are for the most part totally worthless, what impedance is ur amplifier wired too, little sob's probably going into thermal protection.

As Evan asked, what impedance is your amp set to? YOU don't have it "bridged" do you?
