Default Ap1500 transformer question.

I need to know what model the transformers are on the ap15001d. I need one. Where can I get one. Please help. I bought the amp and someone rigged the blue led to come on with the power. But It is toast. Ace holes lol

Is the transformer missing or are the windings visibly damaged?

From what I understand you will have to rewine the transformer with new 16 guage wire . If transformer is toast. Or fine somebody with an ap 1500 that is toast And desoilder and replace to yours. You can find 16 guage copper wire on ebay. Hope you find what you need.

Chances are it shorted just after it comes out of the board and makes the loop. I have repaired 3 like that so far. The transformer uses multiple strands of smaller gauge, not one 16ga piece. The output inductor uses heavier wire.

It shorted in the windings about half way through. I have no clue how to rewind it nor do I know how many times. I got the amp for free like this. No visible fet damage. Did how ever blow the batt copper trace under the board in half( didn't hurt the pcb just the trace). Fixed that with a big pile of solder. Now I got the (torroid?) bare with no wire on it, so if I do have to rewind it it's fresh. Some burn marks are on it though. I don't know If that will hurt it at all. I guess im off to google how to hand rewind. Lol

You should have counted the number of turns when you took the old wire off. If you have the old length of wire you can use that for a general gauge on length and turns. Make one wrap around the core and measure the length divide that by your total length of wire.

Have you contacted audiopipe?

That is nice of them to send a replacement, sound stream wants $15 plus $15 for shipping!!

Be sure to silicone that down. I put a bead on the pc board then place the transformer on it, then solder in the board.
