    Do it. And if he does take care of the situation, have the balls to let everybody know.

    He says its something in the install, but i know i did everything proper. All 1/0 gauge running from two batteries. Grounded to factory ground(since its located in the back of my car), so i know its sanded down. System holds 14.4V on idle and never goes below 12.3 full tilt on idle RPM. Batteries rest at 12.3-12.7 with car off. Using a battery load tester shows both batteries to be in perfect condition. All connections are solid and all wires are crimped extremely well into their respective terminals

    Typical excuse...when all else fails, blame it on the install.

    I remember having to do replace the same dang drawer in one of our microprocessor systems five times before we got one that works. Why do manufacturers not believe things can be messed up in more than one way?

    LOL...sounds like something in the AMP...like built out of cheap parts that won't handle 12v power..lol. A good amp should not have a problem running between 10 or 11 and 14.5.. the POS probably only handles between 13v and 16v

    Worked fine when i had the gains down for breaking in my sub, once i let loose (set up to maximum clean power using oscilloscope) and the voltage went from 12-14.4 did it start to crack ****

    So is that what he told you after you told him it blew again? Do you have another set of eyes that can look your install over? I know I miss things sometimes that somebody else will spot right off. If somebody else looks it over and everything looks good I'd give him one more shot to make it right... after that all you can really do is cut your losses. I couldn't afford to have it repaired on my dime until they got it right either.

    You may have gotten a lemon

    I bought this amp used so it isnt covered under skar warranty. I know buying used is sketchy, but being returned from repair and it dying again is quite alarming

    So it sounds like you should be bitching about the repair company, not the amp.
