View Full Version : Crossover Problem?

06-02-2005, 03:30 PM
I have JL Audio front components and when I turn them up to a moderate volume they have this protection circuit that turns the tweeters off if there is to much current going to them. I don't push them until there is alot of distortion either, just loud and clear.

They are rated at 70 wrms, but even when I was running them off the HU (26 wrms) they would still shut off. They sound OK then all of a sudden the tweeters shut off and I have to turn them down to get them back on.

Is this normal or is there a problem with these JLs? Should I be looking at another product?

That is the tweeter protection kicking on; likely means you are clipping your amp.
