    Amplifier Repai

    Is sending an amplifier back to the company for repair a good idea if I don't have warranty? It's a four channel and only three is working. The amp cost about 250-300 new. Is it reasonable to send it in for repair and get around a $100 bill?

    I would contact ehm but not send it to the mfg. There are usually authorized repair shops for each area..like for me it's Martha Lake Electronics.

    this is true, most electronics tech shops can easily service any make of car audio amplifier. Just look around locally for a reputable shop. Ask questions, and observe the environment. This will likely be the easiest, and least timely way. Just look for a shop that will stand behind thier work for a while and you should be set.

    Take it Easy,

    Re: Amplifier Repai

    Depends on the amp and the manufacturer. For example, I have an Earthquake D2 that is blown. I hear that earthquake is one of the worst companies to deal with concerning amp repair, but I also hear that most other people don't want to/can't easily fix the D2 because it was an early design that used a unique power supply. I sent earthquake an email and after a long time I get an expensive repair estimate and an attitutde like they'd rather me not send it to them. On the other hand, I have a blown Cadence A7 and I contacted them for a quote and got a quick reply, excellent customer service and the cheapest repair quote I've heard of (and this is for an amp that was discontinued a few years back as well). So the answer, depends

    I've been looking around here locally to send my RE12.1 to get repaired, but the few places I've been too I wouldn't leave a stick of gum on the counter for fear of it getting stolen......................
