    well what the heck happened?

    voltage was at 13.6 and it was 3/4 of the way up there was a slight pause then it all came back along with a TON of smoke? Can this be fixed or just toss it on ebay as for repair?



    It's only burned on the power input side/speaker output can it be fixed and if so about how much do you guy's think?

    oh and gains where set below rated output and subsonic was at 25hz to prevent voltage drops?

    I haven't hooked it back up since I opened it up but it was still going pretty hard with smoke rolling when I caught it!

    another thing is there is a sticker on the bottom showing a previous repair job and when I looked when I first bought it there was a burned area, it was the same area that has burned now but now both sides.

    Wish I knew more about amps/repair one of the components has gone and started throwing off heat. That sticky stuff is the melted board... I believe
