LJM Gain L25D Gain Help
Just noticed the gain on L25D modules is 40 volt. My Rotel units are 27.2db. Calculating that is:
Rotel:22.908677 Voltage Ratio Gain 27.2db Gain L25D: 40 Voltage Ratio Gain 32db Gain. LJM lists the L15D as a 36db gain. This seems to be a problem causing full power draw of my 1000w Power Supply at 15db from full power. Is there a method to change the gain on L25D's? Hopefully I can make it adjustable for my different pre/pro's. Thank you! Last edited by mstang1988; 10th September 2014 at 09:51 PM.

Parameters: Supply Voltage: DC +60V to +80V, the recommended voltage +70V Output power: 250W 8ohm, 350W 4ohm Voltage Gain: 40 Input sensitivity: 1.6V Output current = 14A of the (25C), 10A (85C) Noise Residual Noise: 200 μV (22 Hz  20kHz, AES17 the filter Selfregime of the oscillating frequency) THD + N, 100W: 0.008% 1kHz, Singlechannel driven Total Idle Power Consumption 7W No input the signal The Channel Efficiency 90% Singlechannel driven Power=Voltage^2/Load Resistance from what I can find So if the ramp does the rated 350 watt RMS at 4 ohm and 250 at 8ohm I get: SQRT(1400)=37.42v SQRT(1500)=44.73v Voltage Gain = 20*LOG(Vout/Vin) Voltage Gain = 20*LOG(37.42/1.6)=27.38 Voltage Gain = 20*LOG(44.73/1.6)=28.94 However if I look at the listed voltage gain from above it says 40. In addition when I put it in a calculating program of voltage gain to DB it gives the original converted numbers I posted. Am I missing something?

I think you're pushing the current limits of the A1000SMPS ( see attachment ) Can you do an impedance measurement of your speakers ? just download REW and follow instructions. take the minimum impedance and calculate the current at max RMS output and see if this fits in the current limit of the A1000SMPS . I use this wonderful PSU for years now to supply 5 x L15D's at +/ 50Volts and it's (almost) impossible to trip the current limiter , but my speakers are all above 8 ohms . with the above impedance you could calculate a gain factor which prevents the current limiter to trip . Good luck ! Cheers , Rens
