    JBL GTO1004 jumps in and out of protect.

    Well I just picked up the amp on craigs, brought it home, and plugged it up to the car via a jumper from 12v to rem. just to test it. It starts up with the blue power light on, then switches to protect, then it will give me 1 second of power and a few seconds of protect. It just cycles like that. The fuses looked okay so i'm wondering what the deal is.

    looks like cracking @ the speaker terminals right below the bend. unscrew the terminals from the end plate and check for movement. power, too.



    *IF I have forgotten to exchange feedback, please let me know*
    i buy broken amps....
    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

    hmm, where can you see the cracking? I do have a multimeter so I can check diff parts of the board if needed. what should I check?

    Problem solved!!!! Took it to my buddys shop where it originally came from and it was still under warranty! 25 dollars worth of shipping later and I have a BNIB amp! Not only that, but it is a SICK amp. Way more power than rated and sounds so clean.
