    What did you expect to learn from asking to have the amp checked to see if it worked?

    Power
    Ground
    Remote
    RCA
    Speaker Output

    Pretty basic lol. If you want to know more you have to be direct with your questions or you don't answers at shops. Heck, even here we won't "teach" most of our clients as it is simply not worth the headache for the small amount of $$ we would get.

    You have to discuss what you are looking for before hand. When you walk in and talk to a salesmen, you have to tell them exactly what you are looking for.

    If you want to learn something, it is better to ask here after you have searched for the answer. Going to a retail shop and expecting to get a class on amplifiers and how they work is not going to get you any where.

    well it would be nice to have someone locally that knows their stuff that i could ask things. i know i can google anything but how reliable the person who answers the questions is is hard to say. and i'm not looking to get a free class on this stuff, just a few questions that weren't even answered there. i mean, how did all of you start learning things?

    While this is true not everyone has the same options I have, I did not have this thing call "internet" back then. Other wise I would have researched and found a few books to read to help me along.

    What/where are you researching?

    Also for an earlier point you made about you never know who is answering your questions, the same goes for people you talk to face to face.

    well that's the thing. idk where to search for help. i look for answers to my questions on here. the thing is, everyone says different things so idk who to listen to. what i was saying earlier is i wish i knew someone locally who knew their stuff, not some stranger. like a friend or something. i know knowledge comes with experience, i just get so overwhelmed with it all because i want to learn everything at once which is obviously impossible

    Figuring out where to start may be tough but the best way is to pick one area you think you are ready to learn more about..then do some searching on forums and such and see what you learn. Then analyze that information and if you not sure on some facts to do contradicting responses just post up.




  13. Thanks Jes 42 thanked for this post

    well it sounds like you got exactly what you asked for a bench test is for function you should have asked them to clamp the amplifier to see what it's constant rms is and that's not what you asked for, so it's kinda on you with what you received in return for your 15 bucks.
