    How to know if amp is fried?

    I think my hifonics 1606d is fried. I've checked my connections over and over again and I just cant get any power out of it. Fuses are fine. It turns on and lights up and it isn't in protect mode. I tried hooking it up to my friends subs and it wont give any power. I took off the cover and I took some pics, but I have no idea what to be looking for. It for sure is the amp that is the problem. I'll upload pics in a min.

    check for ac volts out of the speaker outs, check for voltage from the rca from your deck

    It doesn't matter if its on the ac HV500 setting or the 200 volt setting you will still get the same reading, unless your amp is putting out more than 200 volts, it won't put out that much with your 1606d.
