    Check the remote wire? Check the fuses?

    What 2 channel amp do you have? Most 2 channels will not run at 1 ohm mono, you possibly damaged the amp.

    Re: help!!! my amp doesn't turn on

    If it is not stable then why did you run it like that. It may be fixable, depending if it is blown, which it seems that it is...

    If it is damaged, then of course it can be fixed. But that garbage amp is not worth fixing buddy. What subwoofers are you running, if I may inquire...

    are there fuses on the amp? usually if there are and you ran it like that you would cause a huge current pull through the amp and blow the fuses.
