    Will this amp still work?

    I bought an Orion XTR2150 off of ebay recently untested. Knowing this was never a good sign, I still managed to get it for an excellent price. It didn't come with the plugs, so I am waiting on those before I can hook it up. Popped the bottom off and everything looks to be in excellent condition except.....one of the mosfets(? transistors maybe? Not sure what they are called, the things that attach to the heatsink) is completely missing. Gone, nothing left but the sodder points. I have a 2150sx that is in a LOT worse condition internally (2 caps and a huge metal looking diode, plus a rather crispy looking transformer) and its working like a champ so far, suprisingly. What I am wondering is will this XTR2150 work without the missing part? Or should I just go ahead and send it on in for repair now? Gotta say, that thing is built like a tank inside, other than the missing part. I'll take some pics of it soon, incase anyone wants a visual of what I am reffereing to.

    It will almost def not work properly without the Mosfets. And alot of the time if the a mosfet(s) is blown, there is probably some other underlying problems that most people wouldn't be able to pick up on just by looking.
    you best bet is just to get the plugs, and send it right in for repair. Alot of places will offer an extended warranty on their repairs too, for a reasonable price.

    Gonna agree with Tplaya07. An amp tranforms DC power into AC power, and without a transformer it's highly improbable you will get anything out of it. Also, the extended warranties are *so* worth their price most of the time.
