Default Rockford fosgate drop in voltage source 10001bd

Hello, this is my first post, excuse my English I'm using a translator, I have a Rockford Fosgate 10001bd, Avia and been repaired previously, the problem is that it has low power output, to revise note that gives a voltage + - 32 vols, Bone 64 total volts with multimeter diodes in central legs, but the volume up with speakers connected the voltage drops to 50% with distortion, I'm testing with a battery of 900 cold cranking amps and 11.5 volts lose, nothing warms out than normal, any idea where I can start looking? Thanks in advance for your time, greetings from Mexico.

11.5 volts is a little low to be testing that amp. What is the voltage across the red and black wires?

Red probe on red wire and black probe on black wire.

hello, my battery brand 12.4 volts, but by working the amplifier to a load of 1 ohm multimeter drops to 11.5 volts to operate and amplficador 4 awg wiring, so the voltage supply (battery) do not think is the problem, I would assume that the driver of the power supply is not keeping the load voltage, since in reality there is little output power of + -32 volts, volts drops to +-12 ; consumption amplifier is 2 amps idling about, any ideas? I follow the slope

I agree. You need to test this with a supply that can keep the voltage above 13v. If you're reading 11.5, it's actually lower than that.

If you have 64v between the center legs of the rectifiers, it's actually ±64v with this amp.

hi perry, test in car with engine running and the same results, new battery, 13.5 volts of power amplifier only sends 64 volts between central legs of the rectifiers. and driving lanes + -32 volts, by increasing the volume in Hu, voltage decrease dramatically, up to 30 volts, and in lanes drops to ± 12 volts, the battery remains new minimum 12.5 volts.

Measure the voltage across the screws for the on-board fuse. What is the maximum voltage you read when the amp is loaded?

connecting fuse multimeter red probe and black probe to central leg rectifiers brand me +50 volts and -23 volts

connecting multimeter black probe negative conectos red tube rectifiers central leg brand me +38 volts and -36 volts

amplifier check in ralenti

I think there is a communication problem.

Try this.

On Q5 with the black probe on leg 3 and the red probe on leg 1, what is the DC voltage when the amp is loaded?

When it's unloaded?

Do the same with the black probe on leg 3 and the red on probe on leg 2. Post the voltages.

El Q5 con la sonda negro en la pierna de 3 y la sonda roja en la pata 1, el voltaje de CC cuando el amplificador está cargado: es 4,52 voltios

Cuando se ha descargado? es 5,082 voltios

lo mismo con la sonda negro en la pierna de 3 y la sonda roja en la pierna 2.
descargada: 14,0 voltios

cargados: 13,2 voltios

conectado a 2 ohms
