Default Bass knob issue

I need to know how your clipping light is on the bass knob.I can't find the manual. I currently have the 7000.1 and with a very little turn of the knob the clipping light starts blinking red. It is consistent on almost every song I play, and all my songs have been checked for clipping and are all clean.

When I continue to turn bass knob up it gets lots louder, like almost two to three times louder? I have run several amps over many years and just replaced two bc3500's which had clipping lights and never had this issue with the clip light until obviously the amp was almost at peak power and didn't get much louder.

Both amp setups were with same head-unit, RCA's Voltage holds a very steady 14 volts with the clip light on, but if I turn it up it still never goes below 13 volts Wang chunging.

Does the light have to stay steady red, does it change to another color, is it possible something is wrong with knob I am going to check soon with DD-1, but sold mine months ago. I know my radio doesn't send a clipped signal until 47 out of 50, yet at 30 the bass knob light starts blinking hard and if I go to 33 most songs will go solid.

I hooked mine up to make sure it works and mine does the same thing. I know other ppl that had tested the amp also said the light comes on really early.
IMO it kinda defeats the purpose of having a clip light if it's no where near accurate

Right now from what we have seen this is only an issue with the 7000.1 and we are working on getting it fixed, when we fix it we will send everyone with a 7000.1 a new bass knob.


However many companies clipping indicators are off, it is more of a reference light. We suggest you always set you amp with an O-Scope or a DD-1.

Clipping lights are not and cannot be made to be accurate when playing dynamic material.

A clipping light is only accurate on a sine wave.

Unless you have a 7000.1 or have seen this issue in person, you need not respond. It is pretty ridicoulous actually.

Can't wait for the fix Coleman

I've noticed that on my knob that came with my 1400.1.. Also the volt meter isn't as accurate as I would have thought. I have taken readings directly on the amp with a dmm and it's about 0.4v off.. anyone else?

That wasn't directed toward the 7,000w amp, just stating a fact about clipping indicators on dynamic source material.

Sorry for sharing facts.
