    sax 100.4 issue, ????? Low output, ect

    Well I bought the amp a year ago from someone on year. Well to be honest I always like my ppi, seemed to have better sq.

    But after rewiring my car today, I still have some of the same issues I had b4 with my setup.

    All in all I only have a component set hooked up for now, and only channel 1 has good output, all the others have little, and sometimes the channels will not work. IDK, I'm swappin it for my ppi tomorrow, but what could be the deal with the sundown.

    Has low output on all but channel one. Sound seems dirty too, but I know I'm not clipping.

    What could be up?
    BTW I know its not the rca's, I tried new crossovers and wires

    if you swap your ppi in without those problems, problem solved

    Little blue rectangle shaped capacitors on the input boards, marked 334 on top. Gaurantee you that's it. Seen it alot. Stupid factory cutter blades are dull and the legs on thos caps are BIG and it tends to pull before it manages to cut and damages the caps. Sometimes it takes a year before the problem shows up.

    BTW: If you find them, wiggle them, and the sound will likely come back full volume. They need to be replaced with new caps...

    cant find that cap on the board. Is it on the smaller board? Upside down so it would be hard to see

    well I hooked up my ppi, and it had the same issues. I think I have narrowed it down to the rca's. Could this be right. I may have pinched my rcas when I put my seats back in the other day.

    I did a temp swap with rcas and it seemed to fix the prob. But I think I blew my pico fuse, so gotta fix that too

    thoughts?
