    Is this (very badly) blown/burnt 6000 watt amp worth anything?

    Looking to see if the resident amp repair guru's could tell me if this amp is repairable...I turned it on one day and the protect light came on. I shut it off and on again, and this time I got magic smoke I initially was trying to trade/sell it, because in the past I've had amps blow but they were usually minor fixes. But then I opened it up, and, yeah...not so much. So...without further adeaux...









    Needs a new board I guess, so it's a $1000 paperweight now, huh? Whaddaya guys think? Could I get any $ at all for it? How in the hell does this happen? My grounds/voltage is good. I danm sure can't afford to have this happen again, lol! What would u do?

    Oh you better believe I'm looking for another amp. I'm assuming this repair would be at least $4-500 on my amp - if it's even repairable. And I'm broke!!! Lol! I wanna find someone with another amp (anything really at this point) who wants this cadence so I can make some sort of deal, ya know? That's kinda what this thread is about-trying to gauge what it's worth(if anything) so I know how much I need to ask for sale/trade...

    Ha! Looks like it... Trust me... I'm pissed! The worst part is not knowing how it happened. Makes u scared to hook up another amp in the same spot without changing anything. I WAS running it at half ohm though - couldve been it. But maybe this is my cue that it's time to gut the truck and start over!!

    That amp board looks shot. I wouldn't pay more than like $50 shipped for it. That repair will be complicated and very expensive.

    Didn't see this till now. Can you post a pic of the entire board? That's the only way to determine the labor involved in a repair, as many more mosfets and things will need replacement than what you can see is visibly blown.

    BTW: Looks like zenon board or cheap copy of a zenon. Most like yes can repair, and yes cost is $300-$400 if it's what I think it is.
