    JBL Amp - What happened?

    I am was running a JBL 1201.1 GT amplifier. I beleive it was purchased back in the day through JBL Directly when circuit city still carried them. It was my managers- it sat in his basement for a few years, and I told him I had a ZS750.1, with a 9xx birthsheet. He said he knows someone that can use it, so I traded him the JBL amp for the kicker.

    We had hooked it up, and I didn't have a 0ga dblock at the time, and no shops were open to get one. We used an ANL fuse holder for 0ga in and 4ga out. I was driving home that day bumping it, and it stopped playing.Fuse blew.

    I went to the local shop today, and got a stinger dblock. I installed everything, and had my step-mom start the car while i made sure the amp turned on. I like doing that to be safe

    Protect light/power light started flashing. I heard some pops, amp smoked..WTF happened? I really like this amp...Where can I get it fixed..Anyone have a use for a blown amp?

    No sir..thanks for the tip, but.. The amp is properly installed. I verified by hooking up a ZX750.1 and it works fine.

    Old amp. Some previous damage or a single component failing could cause a massive failure. Not necessarily something you could have avoided.

    well, it blew the fuse, meaning something went out, and then you bypassed the fuse.... i would have installed another proper size fuse, and if it blew, then time for repair. i'd be interested in it, what do you want for it?

    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks
