If you are using REW you can always use the BFD to tweak after Audyssey.

Have fun and good luck.

Hi RMK,

Thanks,

It's a lot more difficult now as compared to last month when we exchanged those messages smile.gif

The serviced amp will be delivered tomorrow, but my wife and kids returned over the weekend (they were visiting the in-laws most of the summer) and any crazy spl testing will need to wait for now. That being said, I am sure I will find an opportunity in near future wink.gif

Nice! Say what do you think are safe numbers? for example, is too high dangerous on the amp or driver? (probably your house and items in the room first). I heard MKtheater say today on the master list bass movies forum that he once melted an amp running a sine wave at super high spl while testing THD %.

I am not using a dedicated 20amp circuit so my electric circuit may get into unsafe territory way before amp or drivers.

Received the amp and it seems to be working fine.

Quick question: SW2 is currently out and I am not sure if it needs to be in or out to enable Jeff's DSP programming. The amp has a label that says "SW2-PGM-SEL".

Head over to the JTR speaker thread. Much more going on over there including some talk of JTR subs among a myriad of other slightly off topic posts. Nice and knowledgable people on that thread too.

It's always fun IMO to be "loose" in threads. The worst is self established policing where anything even a fraction off topic is called out and you get a verbal detention. Those threads don't last or don't have consistent good discussion. The JTR speaker thread is my go to and most enjoyed!

Try turning it off. And unplug it. Wait a few seconds and plug it in again. If that doesn't work. Count how many times the red lights blink. Then try giving JTR a call.

Marcus.. The best thing to do is turn on the amp and count the number of times that the red light blinks because it's emitting a trouble code. Then contact JTR. He'll probably ask how much time does the red light blink. How long have you have the sub?

The only reason I ask how long is because if you had the sub over 2 years the warranty through JTR is done. You might have to contact Speaker Power about the plate amp.

Hi Rhed,

Thanks, is too expensive for me to send back under warranty. Shipping from my country to US is crazy.
I just need to know what's wrong and get local guy to repair.

No intention for warranty repair since day one when I bought this.

Jeff is a very nice guy and he will go all out to get it done for us.

Cheers.

If the problem is the plate amp, then you don't have to send back the whole sub. You'll just have send in the plate amp. Surely it won't cost that much. And really it's not hard to take out the amp.

Switch on the power again. Now the blinking is slow. 4 times pause 1 time than 4 again.

Hi,

Just to keep you guys updated.


I switch in on again last night the red light gone. However the Power and Clip light is on. I remove the XLR cable so there are no input into the amp but the clip light is on.

I used to leave in on 24/7 could it be overheat.

Cheers
