    Enjoying some time with the family right now but I will get back with you shortly about this. The cap is most likely a bipolar cap that is part of the filtering for the output section. I have seen those blow open and even be completely removed and the amp still work. Sometimes they just go. Perhaps the speaker outputs got shorted? At any rate if the amp works fine otherwise it should be an easier fix although not necessarily super cheap because the board would need to be pulled.

    thanks man. and it still powers on but there's barely any power coming out of it. let me know about how much it'd run me to fix it.
