    Try upgrading you inline fuse and trying to upgrade you fuses in your amp, it should help.

    yep bye bye RF700s my man. you fried the circuitry inside your amp my guess would be 1 of 2 reasons. 1 you ran too low of an impedence to it and except the BD line of RF amps they go adios when you do that. or 2 you didn't put a big enough in line fuse to it and it tried to pull more juice then could be pulled and fried the amp. the 2nd one is what i doubt is the cause of it but hey who knows. either way your amp is gone! send it to RF if you want to get it fixed.

    Similar problem...
    Alright, I've only had my stuff installed for about two weeks, a kappa perfect 12.1 running off a rockford 500s. 4 guage ground/power, down to 8 guage into the amp. it worked fine for a few days, then just cut out on me suddenly, I thought that it might have blown the sub or the VC had gotten stuck but it started working again miraculously the next day. fine for 3 more days, similar problem..against just started working after a disconnect/recconect...then today I was driving home and it cut out on me. I pulled up to my house, stopped and looked back at my wiring. (I had unplugged it right away once it started crapping out on me). I reconnected the turn on wire to the amp and the sound from my speakers dropped severely. That and the led light didn't come on like usual. The sub kinda buzzed for a second, but that was most likely my speakers crackling whenever I plugged the amp in. Is it blown or what guys?
