    i am assuming the way the op reads, it was hooked up backwards?..that sucks.

    Re: blown sundown sax 1200

    Email Sundown first and give them the background on the amp as far as when it was purchased and if you still have the receipt because it may still be under warranty....

    yep sounds like he wired the positive and negative up backwards. The fets are polarity sensitive.

    Re: blown sundown sax 1200

    i know everyone is saying postive/ negative were backwerds, no dice ppl, it was all correct, i watched it get hooked up no issues there. second amp went in like at charm,
    and how hard is it to get in contact with sundown? it was bought out of a pawn shop so doubt there will be any warranty for me to use

    Re: blown sundown sax 1200

    could have been dropped, or frozen during storage at the pawn shop, or was sold with a problem. got pics?



    *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

    Re: blown sundown sax 1200

    i can post pics later, original owner had a .5 ohm load on it and couldnt figure why he was blowing his 100 amp fuse daily, he got a breaker and well then we put big three on his car cause he had massive dimming, upon re install pop pop pop it went. i can get pics later but just some burned fets. pics to come
