Rockford T5002 Outputs sub
 
Ive got this amp here with one of two channels blown. I clipped all FETs which all shorted i nthe bad channel, and the amp powered up and plays out of the good channel.

The output transistors are FQA36P15 and FQA46N15. I tried a few places and it looks like theres a few mis-matched parts available from different resellers. Arrow has the Fairchild FQA46N15 which is fine (and good price). They are out of stock on the FQA36P15 and no place seems to be selling the FQA36P15. Digikey comes close with an IXYS brand, IXTQ36P15P but they are pretty expensive and IXYS does not seem to have their branded counter-part.

Is there some other, better fet or retailer I can get replacement or substitute fets for this and other style, newer RF amps?

Newark looks like they have "FQA36P15" in stock. 49 pieces. They are a good distributor, I've used them lots. Avnet express has the "FQA46N15", also good distributor.

Also check out "http://www.findchips.com/". It's a great resource for finding parts.

There you go! Thanks!

I got the right outputs and installed, "FQA36P15" and "FQA46N15" into Q1024, Q1025, Q1026, and Q1027. now when the amp powers up, it draws my power supply down to protection and the cycles power about every 2 seconds. Previously, I had clipped 3 out of these 4 outputs, and the one which survived was playing 1/2 the waveform on the scope.

Bias?

Gate resistors?

Dr Zeus 10th February 2011 06:53 PM

OK I did find R1065 which is a 0.10 ohm resistor totally open. I replaced all four in the amp but it still experiences the problem.

I turned the bias pot fully counter clockwise and the problem still happens. While the amp is power cycling, the voltage accross the source resistors is ~0.040 in the bad channel. Too high. 0.001 in the good channel.

Is the voltage across each of the source resistors virtually the same or do you have 1 or more that have significantly higher or lower voltage across them?

Are the 3 legged jumpers properly soldered to the MEHSA insulator?

Is the bias transistor intact/in place?

I think between the open source resistor and the 3 legged jumper, I think that was it.

Testing amp thouroughly now.
