    Help me determine whats wrong with my amp.

    Well, here it goes. About 3.5 months ago, i bought a directed 350d amp from ikesound. It was a refurb. I bought it for my girlfriend, and i just got around to installing it this past weekend. Only problem is, after i hooked it up, the amp powered up, but had no output. I pulled off the back panel of the amp, and it doesnt appear to me that anything "blew" internally. There is no black spots anyway, but i dont really know what im looking for. Is there anyone that might be able to diagnose this problem for me with this info? If you need to know anything else just ask. Thanks guys.

    try hooking it up to a location you know where has good connections...like a buddies car...if it still doesn't fire up, bad amp.

    yea, find out either you have no power, no signal, or RCA issues.

    Re: Help me determine whats wrong with my amp.

    no...heres how it goes.
    Im putting a system in her car. I wire up them amp and everything, but the sub doesnt get any power. At first i figured something was wrong with the wires, so i messed with all that for awhile. Didnt find anything wrong. SO...i went to my truck and grabbed my amp and put it in her car. Everything worked fine then. So i KNOW for a fact that its a bad amp. Im just wondering if anyone can determine if its something i can repair (like something in the internals).
