    How to tell if amp is blown???

    I just recieved an amp, a Autotek SS 600.4 Looks good when I get it it. I checked the fuse and its blow with black charcoal residue on the prong and some on the slot where it plugs in.

    I go to hook up the amp (I know everything is right) finsh screwing in the wires and plugging in the RCAs and the speakers start popping....so after double checking everthing is correct I go through with the volume low trouble shooting 1 RCA at a time plug and test. Each time I got to the 3rd channel they started to pop???

    Can I take it to a local shop to have them confirm the channel is blow or will they bench test it?
