Ok do you know if they are easily accessible or am I gonna have to play operation?

At the least, youll need to remove the cover, there are a couple that are internal. Did you possibly have a power spike or loss overnight?
post #1564 of 4375
Thx beast, I don't think so because my other 2amps were still on come the morning and working fine.

Well after chasing my tail, the FP once plugged into another outlet powered up. I had it plugged into a shared outlet with my other amp so I figured if I tripped a circuit, then neither would work. Still have to hook up an actual load but I feel encouraged now.

gpmbc,
I can't run anything on my 20 amp outlet with my FP14K as it always shuts it down or trips the breaker, even just the 2 surrounds and FP14K. I run it on it's own dedicated line. Oh yeah, the new sub system is fantastic!

Does anyone know the price difference to have a dedicated 30amp outlet installed vs a 20amp?

Is it much more involved or is it relatively the same with maybe thicker gauge wiring involved?

The pricing difference should be minimal. As you had already noted, the only difference will be the 10/2 vs 12/2 wiring and the 30A vs 20A breaker. The bulk of the cost is the labor which will be the same.

Guys

I'm running this amp with a minidsp revB, what should I set the input sensitivy jumpers at, ideally?

Complete setup goes like this: receiver sub out to minidsp input 1 => output 1 & 3 of the minidsp to input 1 & 2 of the FP14K, each channel driving an 8 ohm sub (jtr captivator)

So maximum output is welcome.

Thanks

Any good feedback on the 10000q model ? I am thinking about getting one and replacing 4 ep2500's .

I just got my 220v 10000q fired up today and works fine so far. Must use speakons for speaker outputs.

FYI. You won't get a full 2500 watts per channel. I believe it's only good for 2100 WPC @ 4 ohm.

Just something to consider.
post #1573 of 4375
^^^^^^^

That's more than the 2500 outputs @ 4ohms bridged. wink.gif

And?

Nothing against anyone and their experiences but if Sanway is still working for Not then they will be fine for me.

Not how are yours doing?
post #1577 of 4375
My single FP14K works great running 6 subs. I am running it bridged too.

Jason kiDD, I forgot about your request, I will get on it as soon as I can.
post #1578 of 4375
Mktheater running 4 ohms bridged is almost the same as running 2ohms stereo be very careful. You should have no problem running it normal with 3 subs a side. And no problem its no rush..

GPMBC, how's that FACE AUDIO running these days?

RUMP, so what is your overall take on the LG vs. The Chineese clone?
post #1580 of 4375
Long time! They're running great. I have the F1200 & F700 both in play along with the FP14000.
post #1581 of 4375
Glad the Face amps are still performing well.


The Chinese clones scare me.

Up to this point my FP has been coasting along, kicking out the juice. I plugged into a different outlet than normal. Everyone noticed the dimming of the lights. It delivers.

Lights dim even with it's own dedicated 20amp circuit/socket? Mine was delivered on Thursday, but I missed the freakin delivery man and I had to catch a flight right after work today... So it's going to have to wait till Monday to meet it's new home...

I already posted this up on edogg's thread, but what the haaay. The Clones new nesting ground...

No dimming in its dedicated 20amp home but when I temporarily had it in another outlet (don't remember why) that's when it happened. Sucks you missed delivery. I know the feeling.
post #1585 of 4375
Did I misunderstand, or are FP clones also available?

Getting some pretty major humming from my new clone... Been experimenting with it and when I unplug the source (LFE from AVR) the humm goes away... That should isolate the issue to the cables... However, the tricky thing is when I plug the LFE in my other sub (w/integrated amp) it doesn't humm?

Difference in ground potential. Somethings outlet either isn't grounded; has only a 2 prong plug (usually the rcvr), or is on a separate power circuit in your house. Try ensure they are all tied into the same outlets for the same circuit. You should be able to see which item it is by unplugging one at a time from the back of the receiver. All cables could cause this. Also a temp fix on the receiver pick a back case screw piece of wire to the screw on the center of your outlet. If that works you can go even further and rewire the receiver power cord to make it a 3 prong using the GND wire and make a permanent screw lug through the case. I've had to do this for running all the pro amps. Polarized plugs (2 prong) don't play nice with pro 3-pronged equipment.

Ugh... I'm going to have to chew on this one... Yes, I had a dedicated circuit installed specifically for the Clone, so my equipment is technically running on two seperate circuits.

My AVR does in fact have dual prong. Is there a three prong outlet plug that I can purchase for my AVR that would fix the issue? Would I really have to re-wire anything?

I'm a bit inexperienced when it comes to electrical.

Really Really do not like the idea of running a wire from a "case screw to the center of your outlet"... Man that sounds horribly schiesty!

POP,

Many times hum comes from cable or sat-tv stb.

You can also use say a power strip so amp is on same circuit as AVR just to power up and see if hum goes away.


Just trying to get my head around this clone deal. $900 Sanjay vs. $6849 LG
post #1590 of 4375
Hey Austin, remind me how the amp is connected to the AVR. Any EQ in the mix? Which AVR again??
