    my plate amp

    dear peoples and stuff,
    it seems like the auto-on on my amp is gettin less sensitive as time goes on. when i 1st got it, i turned my music up to 6 and it came on it. now, i have to turn it up to 8, sometimes 9, for it to kick on. i emailed brian from rhythmik audio, to see what i can do or maybe he can do. does anybody have any advice for me??

    Don't use it and use a power switcher. The auto ons can be very odd as anything that is auto. My MartinLogan one is odd like that somedays it works fine other days it weirds out, so I just don't use it in auto anymore....

    I like the old school way of turning on the audio system.

    Giant knife switches {think Frankenstein} mounted on the wall with Tesla coils
    for visual effects when throwing the switch.

    I was just making sure that you didn't have the gain really low. Cause with mine when the gain was low it wouldn't come on.... But thats not it....

    Re: my plate amp

    brian,
    it seems like the sensitivity of my 350 watt amp is getting less as the months go on. i have to turn my music up louder and louder for it to automatically kick on. anything i can do about it??

    devon



    Attached is a photo. If you know how to solder, please replace the resistor with 20k ohms.

    -Brian




    where can i get resistors from, especially one that danm small??

    You don't really need a small resistor if you have skill in soldering a
    standard 1/4 watt resistor, but if you can find 1/8w resistors then maybe
    it's easier to install. Radio Shack should carry 20k resistors.
