The input voltage switch near the RCA input jacks may be in the wrong position. I'm assuming that you have the gain control fully clockwise.

input voltage sellection is set to low .week aggo i had same rev-3 jl audio for repair and i swaped the input boards but the amp keeps playing very low.The only part that i see must be changed is those large capacitors near output section 1200uf 100v-they have the bubble on the top.I ve seen plenty amps working fine with those capacitors bad.

That bubble is just the plastic blow out shield for the caps vent on the top, they just about always look bubbled, but have nothing to do with the capacitors health state.
