Orion XTR 1500.1
Amp turns on, shows rail voltage, but does not produce audio. When the subsonic filter button or phase 0/180 degrees is pressed, the test woofer jumps. The woofer also jumps when turning the gain pot. All of these tests are done with NO rca input. I've also noticed a possible continuity problem when testing main ground to rca shielding.

Any starting help would be welcomed. [IMG][/IMG]

Check all of the 10 ohm resistors on the outputs of the various regulators. In a similar amp, they commonly open.

are you referring to smd style resistors on the driver boards?

I don't have anything on this amp but the smaller version has a problem with the 10 ohm resistors on the output of the various regulators. They are highlighted with green arrows in the attached photo. They won't be exactly the same in your amp (or may not even exist in your amp). I think that there are at least 8 of them and maybe more.

I believe that my tone generator had a dead batt at first test. The amp has output, sounds clean, still has turn off pop and pop when adjusting gain or depressing phase and subsonic.

Are you turning it off by removing remove voltage (but leaving B+ and ground connected)?

removing only remote turn on.

Does the relay disengage precisely when you remove the remote voltage?

All pins that I've tested that are driven by this circuit seem to be losing voltage at the time that I remove remote turn on

Do you hear the relay disengage precisely at the point when you remove remote voltage?
