    WTF? Please help

    OK, this is what happened:
    Driving along, and all of a sudden music stopped coming outta my speakers. I figured the amps had gone into protection (pieces of sh*t).
    Next day they still didn't do anything. ****! So I proceded to check all the fuses, and they are all fine. Amps will not turn on at all! Didn't check behind the deck for the off chance that the remote wire came loose, but I will later.
    Any ideas? Comments? Thoughts?
    thanks for any help in advance

    Well is you fuse in your amp inside the amp where you have to take it apart or is it mounted right by your rcas etc... If thats not it check the fuse in your HU sometimes that does it. And yea check remote. If the fuse is inside it could of blown when maybe the Ground and power hit together.

    measure the voltage at the amp with a dmm when it is turned on right at the ground on the amp (not the chasis) see if the amp is getting power via the power and the remote also check the rcas (if power light comes on) also check speaker wires. this should save you alot of time.

    Ground wire is fine on both amps btw.
    Gonna check turn on wire, i remeber when i installed it at the HU end the wire was a lil small for the butt connector, so gotta check if it came out!

    check with the digital multi meter before u go rippin it apart. the way i was showing you is if it gets now power from the 12 volt battery your ground is bad and if no voltage from the remote then check that saves alot of time disassembling 15 minute job in most cases
