Default Bought new hcca2500 not operating correctly seller not very co-operative

Regarding: Orion Chicago 2500.1

Ok I bought this amp from a stereo dealer on eBay it took me a minute to hook it up because I was waiting on my hcca 15.2 recone . So finally got it and hooked it up everything good then amp shuts off then 5 seconds later coms back on . I touched the amp and shit was it hot very hot . So I removed one 15.2 from the equation which now gives me a 2500 rms @1ohm shuts off again , ok go with each coil to each channel wrong shuts off again ? Now correct me if I'm wrong here but 1 ohm stable is not a top secret ohm load that only the CIA knows about. Because when I contacted the seller he said maybe 1 ohm is a little to much for it to handle past a few min , WTF ? Tells me to wire my sub parallel to create a 4 ohm load then I should be fine " MF'er then I should have just bought a 4 ohm amp if that's what I wanted he said the amp was new and it did come in new packaging but could it be a refurb and how can I tell ?
He's just a taste of the conversation



Dear michael559

A 1 ohm load even if its just one sub is harder on the amp then a 2 ohm load, impedance is just too low at 1 ohm for this amp to run more then a few minutes at full volume, wire the single 15.2 in series and have the amp play and I guarantee the amp plays and plays with absolutely no problem. Your requirements that this amp play 2 15's hcca and push them hard is not achievable as I had said before, as orion themselves suggests 1 2500.1 for a single 15"

Please provide a phone number and I will discuss this with you.

Dear

I already have taken out the equation of 2 subs and went with 1 to verify .
I used a dual 2 ohm hcca 15.2 wired in parallel producing a 1 ohm load at the amp , this seemed worse on the amp and harder because I started to smell the amp straining to keep up , this was only 1 hcca 15 wired into a 1 ohm config the amp just can't take it . I let it cool down and turned it back on to verify it was not blown , it is not there has to be something wrong internally I can play it in mid volume but if I wanna blow my ear drums this wont stabilize at a 1 ohm load it seemed to play longer with 2 subs x 1 channel at 2 ohms both wires parallel on each sub then wired in series to get the 2 ohm 1 channel load . Even if you could get Orion to fix the amp under your warranty or even if you could find me one used that works because its just not holding true to what it's supposed to hold.

Moved and edited so it doesn't look like a FS ad.

So the amp gets hot without any signal and goes into protect without subs hooked up? Amp is faulty.

not the same issue?

OK..

is it the same amp? or Have you bought three amps and had problems with all of them?


note: given your history, there's no way I would do anything for you if I was the seller.

did you say you bought this one off ebay?


I do apologize if I seem rude. I don't mean to be.

Ok I'm not looking for help in diagnosing the issue I need some ammo here as I don't think the seller wants to exchange it and since he owns a shop eBay may be inclined to take his word for it . It's brand new , paid 680.00 it's hooked up to 1 sub Orion hcca15.2 in a 1 ohm config . Amp will play at med volume but if I turn it up with the gain at 2 o'clock2 -3 minutes of play then it turns off . With only a red light sowing , 10-15 seconds turns back on and is as hot as hell

He's telling me that maybe the amp can't handle 1 ohm I should be hooking it up in series - producing 750 watts rms x1 @ 4ohms , that's almost a dollar a watt , am I Wrong here it seems to me like he's trying to get me to settle even offered me another one shop demo for 500. 00 $-!? What about the 680.00 paper weight I just bought ?

Ya feel my pain here ?
