Hey came across this forum tonight by searching google. Looking to get my old broken amp fixed and back into car audio :p: Doesn't look like it's a hard fix. I haven't even had a chance to look around the forum yet. So I should go do that now ;) Anyways thanks guys.

Kenwood KAC-929

My power and ground wires were both black 4 gauge and stupid me tried to hook it up in the dark... ya so I connected ground to positive and the positive to ground. Stupid of me. It blew a fuse and I took it apart a year ago. Just getting off my butt now and wanting to fix it up my self. I've already searched a bit on this forum and looks like one of the IRFIZ44N power supply mosfets is blown. Not sure where to proceed to next. Gonna PM a guy on here that looks like he knows what he's talking about.

try open up the amp and check everything, if nothing looks burnt or fried, try check your inline fuse, hopefully that jus blew

I would just find a replacement in the classifieds. Probably be a better cost\benefit than repairing it, but that's just me.

I've got 4 different boxes that i've collected over time. One of them that is prefab I really like. Want to use it with a 12" Audiobahn (Had one until it died) looking to get the same sub again. Then Would like to use one of my smaller 400watt sony amps to power some components which I would need to buy.

strangely I have also been looking at CarPC's :) haha not sure if I would use it enough though for what its worth.

Ya the only thing is I have had a lot of electronic stuff fail on me and I seem to tinker around with it and get it working. I went to college 4 years ago for Electronics Technician course. So I know my way around the circuits slightly but I have forgotten a lot also.
