Re: don't jump your car off a bridge signat dig 1 monoblock amp dead
Doh.. that's about as stupid as when I was putting the side trim back on next to my center console (where headunit was).. and these "knee pads" weren't fitting, I starting moderately banging on them to get them into place.. When I was done,.. derp.. my headunit magically didn't work.

If the amp is somewhat expensive,.. It'd be worth taking in for service somewhere.. ie: $1000 amp.. is worth $100 fix.. on the other hand a $200-$300 amp usually isn't. Is it still under warranty? It'd be covered, although you would have to ship it off to them,.. but still worth it , even if you replaced it in the meantime and sold the replacement when you got the amp back fixed, or vice versa,. just sold the fixed amp when you got it back from factory.
