I believe Spooney does... Get in contact with him. I hear his prices are reasonable as well.

I'm sure it's fixable. Leave this post up for a couple hours. You'll get a few hits. There's a few guys that fix amps on here. Powerbass is a decent amp. Be a shame to junk it if it's an easy fix ya know?

Craigslist I'm guessing? I bought an old school Kicker dx760 off cl a few months back. All I checked was that it powered on. Well it turned on but didn't work. I took it to a little shop here in town and they fixed it for 40 bucks. I should have known it was fishy. It was only 50 bucks but you know how it goes... All's well that ends well.

Ampmedics does good work. Hard to say if it's worth shipping 2 ways + repiar on an amp like that, it may come up close to what you'll pay for 1000W used

well, the bare minimum shipping flat rate would be 25 total both ways in a med flat rate, if you could build something strong enough to protect the terminals, like sheet-metal, lol. it's almost the exact size of the med flat tare box. otherwise, there is also the large flat rate game board box that ships for about $15 each way. there is a chance that the parts are going to run 25-50, possibly more or less. then there is the labor time, which could be an hour, or could be over5. the amp is worth 100-150imho, depending on condition, even less if it's pretty bad. i cannot say one way or the other if it would be worth paying to have it fixed, because you could get lucky, or end up upside-down on it, but will likely end up breaking even....

If its anything like the asa 1500.1 dx then the amp is very similar to the power acoustik A3000db/2400db etc series amps. In the 1500.1 dx the board wasn't laid out the same but the circuit was pretty much the same part for part.

These style amps are generally a pretty easy fix.

Please elaborate on this.When you say it doesn't work are you saying it does not power on at all? or it powers on but no audio? blows fuses at turn on? blows fuses when you hook up just the power and ground with no remote applied?

It is definitely fixable. Just depends on what it is worth to you. The outputs in this amp are a little pricier than most but there are only six of them. Power supply fets are cheap and easy to come by. Not sure on the rectifiers. A common failure in these amps is shorted inductors whether it be the two output inductors in front of the fan or the single common mode choke near the rectifiers. If you absolutely cannot find anyone else to fix this for you and are not in a big rush for time I will see if I can do it for you but I cannot promise you a fast turn around . I'm lucky to get a couple hours a week to fix anything these days
