hey all,

I'm having a problem with my lepai ta2020 in a car installation...

I've wired it directly to the lighter socket on the accessory circuit... it works great with the ignition on 'acc' or 'on', but as soon as I start the car the sound cuts out.

The thing that has me stumped - the LED stays on and there is current going to the amp. What could be causing this? Maybe a grounding problem?... or insufficient amperage from the alternator?

thanks in advance if anyone has any ideas.

If I want to bypass the volume control, am using a preamp, Just install a 100K resistor on the input shunt to ground?

Thanks.

I can do that too, but I know that the attenuator installed are of questionable quality, so I might as well bypass it. I will let you know how it goes.

I found the same thing, too much voltage, the Lepai doesn't like being run above 14v.

Yeah looks like that's it... battery shows 12.8v when the car is off, but about 13.9 when the alternator is running.

What is the best way to skim 1v off the circuit so that it can work?

What problem did you find, Mike? In my experience the TA2020 chip does real at 14V, so no problem in a car. Is it something else in the Lepai?

The TA2024 seems more voltage fragile.
