    Re amp problem

    I bought an re amp around 1 year ago and used it for a month and then stored it. Last week I built a box for three 10's ported and tuned to 34hz and connected them and the RE amp in my truck @ 1ohm . They bumped really hard for the first two days and then the amp went into protection mode. I thought it might have been the south Texas heat but it wasn't . I rechecked all the wiring and everything is fine. any suggestions on what it might be. Any advice would be appreciated

    Re: Re amp problem

    Recheck all your fuses. And I know this sounds stupid....but are you absolutely sure they are wired at 1ohm and that you didn't accidently wire them into something super low like .25ohm (pulled a number out of the air). Cause I really can't think of what ohm & VC config you can have with 3 subs and get a 1ohm (even) load other than 3ohm SVC's.

    Re: Re amp problem

    They are single voice coils 4 ohm each and the dealer told me to connect them parrallel and that it would give me a 1 ohm load so that is hoew I did it The fuses are fine the amp only stays in protect mode. I have disconnected the speaker wires from the amp and it stilll stays in protect mode. I have disconnected the power wire and connected it back up and it is still in protect mode.

    Re: Re amp problem

    you get about one and a third ohms out of 3 4 ohm SVC subs...but still, that RE amp is rated to be one ohm stable (it's based on the same design as the Ampman Revo 1500.1).

    Recheck all your wiring again to confirm that you in fact have a 1.34 ohm load to the amp.

    Re: Re amp problem

    Accounting for ohm rise the amp is seeing ~2-2.25 ohms, so thats not the problem...Taking the speaker wires out with the amp on is not a good idea BTW, Ive shot sparks from a few Mmats amps doing that.
    9 times out of 10, when the wiring is not the problem and everything appears to be correct its the grounding location or the termination itself. Just look into it, from what Ive heard those amps are pretty solid though.
