    Low Ohm light - Help!

    I can't figure out what's going on. All the speakers are still working.
    I have a JL 300/4 powering Hertz HSK165 and Polk db6500 coax and I just noticed today when I was tweaking the tuning that the low ohm light was on. The amp now gets hot a lot faster.

    Both fronts and back is 4ohm, and the JL is 4ohm stable.

    Any ideas?

    Re: Low Ohm light - Help!

    your ohms are faded away and need to be replaced. might be time for re-cones.

    In all seriousness, you have a short somewhere.

    That said it can't hurt to top off the ohms in the amp, they are low afterall

    ^ a short in a wire or in the amp?

    ugh...

    so if i keep using it, it may damage the speakers then or just blow the amp?

    The short is probably in the speaker wiring somewhere.

    also, where can i get these ohm's repleced and how much would it cost?
    This all has to do with us messing with the noob. Thus the in my post. It like a tub of elbow grease or blinker fluid or something along those lines.

    Re: Low Ohm light - Help!

    well thanks for clarifying. i'll try to single out which speaker wire is shorted

    ..or if I disconnect all the wires and just power up the amp and the light is on, then that'd just mean the amp is screwed rather than a short?

    brb.
