Default help with ap1500

amp worked great, until I lost all output playing a good bit below full volume. amp goes into protect as soon as I try to turn it on. it will come on for one second, then go into protect and repeat this process. will turn on/off about every 3 seconds. any help or similar problems? might just try to sell it,but who knows.

btw I have hooked it up in my car, and tried it with a standalone battery. same thing.

I have the same problem with one of my amps. I'm 99% sure it's not anything I can fix so it's either sell it, fix it, or trash it. Your situation could be different. GL

X2, you could have it repaired. It's most likely some output FET's that went out on it, should pull the bottom off and take some pics of the board and look for any burnt spots

yeah I opened her up, no burnt spots at all. looks perfect, and it never let out any of the magic smoke. Ive had bad luck with ap amplifiers along with my friends, so IDK what I want to buy next. something with a warranty. as dumb as I am it will probably be another ap3k. last one shorted one of the main power wires on the heatsink.

btw blown ap1500 $50 shipped haha

mine did that, first time was just some wires that weren't put in the fuse properly and was dropping to 8-9v and next time was something to do with my second battery everything is good now!
