    I think db is probably right tho. when i opened up the amp there were wet spots on parts of it. Just look at the pictures. Coincidentally it happened after i washed my car.

    That brown liquid doesn't look like water, it might be resin from solder from the factory or a leaked/blown capacitor nearby. OP if the "water" is not gooey or solid then it's probably from the car wash, and you have more things to worry about if your car leaks in a car wash.

    Yea it kind of looks like i spilled Dr.pepper on parts of the board. At this point i am kind of stumped. I emailed Soundstream about repairing it or replacing it, now i am just waiting for a response bacc.

    Ok i took my amplifier apart and tested the liquid substance and it is not goey. In maybe a couple tiny spots it is, but mostly i think it was just water. I touched it and rubbed it between my fingers to test it and i also found where it burnt or fried. pics will be below. please let me know what you think...

    Yeah that amp is going to need service by a repairman. What did you pay for the amp? If you paid less than $150 then it is basically not worth it to get it fixed.

    Back is spelling with a c and a k. Check is also spelled with a c and a k. English words very rarely end in cc, if ever.

    Do NOT ever mount this particular amplifier on the subwoofer box! Well, this is cheap (good enough for that money) amplifier, main PCB is not enough secured from vibrations, sooner or later the the transistors, regulators and rectifier legs will broke off the board. Also the weak point of this amplifier is the driver board (vertical baord), SS could design it better, or at least fix the "bugs", because it's a clone amp.

    Time to go with something better, Used AQ, Crescendo, or Sundown. Onlinecarstereo may take care of you, it's worth a shot.
