I received my Axiom ADA1000-4 amplifier today, so I was eager to use the LFR1100s in the way they were meant to be used, but I'm running into difficulty, which seems to be my thing. At first I hooked everything up how it was supposed to be hooked up with the DSP in the chain. Front right and left signals from the receiver to the DSP inputs, front and rear outputs for both left and right channels going to inputs on the amplifier, corresponding power outputs going to the appropriate terminals on the speakers themselves. I'm unable to get any sound whatsoever. I then hooked up my MP3 player directly to the amp itself, trying to at least get signal to the front drivers of the LFRs. Nothing. I'll admit that the first time I tried, I forgot to push the power button on the front of the amp, but I figured that one out, and I'm still getting zero sound, DSP or no DSP. At this point, I suppose I need to hook up the Emotiva again and see if I can get it to run at least the front drivers on the LFRs.

Oh, I also tried the front left and right outputs from the receiver directly to the amp with no sound. So after trying both the MP3 player directly to the amp as well as the receiver directly to the amp, it's looking like the amp isn't functioning, right? Am I missing anything?

All right, all four outputs of the DSP work. I hooked up the two fronts to the Emotiva first, and they worked, and then I hooked up the two rears, and the both worked. So it really does seem to be the ADA1000-4 that's the issue, which surprises me. I'm sure it was tested plenty before being shipped, so I have to wonder why I'm not able to get any sound out of it.

Charles, I've pondered this for a few minutes and I certainly can't think of anything that you've missed. You checked the 1000-4 with two different voltage sources and got no response. Does the 1000-4 have some sort of power-on light? Contact Axiom, of course, to see if there's something weird about operating it that we're not aware of.

Sure, until you get the new amp problem fixed you can use the Emotiva for just the front drivers, but I'm still of the view that you should try the receiver again as we discussed before to get full operation of the LFR1100s.

Yes, there's a blue light on the front that comes on when it's powered up. There are also red lights in the case that turn blue. I have an email in to Brent, so we'll see what happens.

Charles, did you ever happen to make Googley eyes (lower case g) at the sister of your UPS driver?

(Sorry about your trouble. I know you've been really patiently waiting)

As a regular forum member you probably spend the most money on Axiom products. You also are up there with experiencing the most problems.

As Biggie once said Mo Money, Mo Problems.

On the plus side, he should also get Mo Support. No need to wait for an email response, give them a call. Hopefully it will be something easily resolved without further delay.

This is incredibly bizarre CV! Your ADA1000 went through a full regimen of line testing, including a full suite of testing by me in the lab. I think you have all of the steps correct, but please check all of the following:

1. Make all input and output connections.
2. Turn on the rear panel switch.
3. Note that there should be red lights visible inside the amp.
4. Press the front panel button.
5. Note that the interior lights should turn blue, the front panel led should light up blue, and you should hear the click of relays.

If the relays are not clicking, then something has happened in shipping to the protection circuit connections. I'm assuming that you are unable to get sound from any of the 4 channels? Also, are you using the trigger connection? If you are, please disconnect it and see if the amp functions.

I'm sorry that your first experience with the amp has been a let down. Believe me, I take this even more seriously as I know your amp was working perfectly before it left the factory. frown

Oh no!! I'm so sorry to hear it! Noreen and Debbie and I were talking at dinner last night about how excited we were for your feedback on the new amps. So sorry - we're all so disappointed!

I have gotten to the point that i make sure i am here when Fedex shows up and either watch, or help unload.. They have broken a few things on me, the last one was damaged right at the curb infront of the house.
