I picked this amp up on CL about a week ago. When I saw it, I noticed that the POS input was burnt and obviously has been quite hot. I was skeptical as shit, but didn't have any tools to test it. Bought it anyways (for a good price ). Dude seemed cool, and guaranteed it would work.
Anyways, I hooked it up on Saturday in my 95 Marquis. 2ga welding cable. Pushing an IDMAX 12 @ 4 ohms on one coil (the other is coil is bad). Well it does power on, and it will rock the shit out of the sub. After about 2min, it is so hot you can't touch it. The gain was a little past half (the gain pot seems sticky/twitchy also).
What do you guys think? I cracked it open to see if the inside looked ok. It looks fine. I honestly don't think it's ever been open before. Should I live drive my RCA to boost the voltage and keep the gain down? Is the amp damaged?
