Re: legacy la590 amplifier

Ok If the power wire as well as the remote wiring was checked then you know the problem has to lie within the amp?? Yes it does. Do you know how to check b+ lines with a vom?? as well as use a schematic to trace one curcuit to another?? If not its best in my mind to have a pro look at the amp but if you really wanna try to see if theres something burnt in side by all means open it up look around and if you dont see anything out of normal such as burnt things crispy parts or fried wire then its time to unistall the amp and take it to your local repair depot. Now your local repair person may or may not be a sspecialist in auto amps?? If not My advice would be to ship your unit directly to the manufacturer for repairs. First thing you wanna do is look in the owners manual under troubleshooting . it will tell you where to call and if a RMA is needed(RMA means Return Materials authorization).Or contact the company at 1-425-788-0932 or online at Good Luck

Legacy audio LA590 car audio amp protecet mode

Is that on all the time or are you saying the light is on? If that light is always on that just means it's protecting your amp. If it's off and not playing bass then your in trouble

I went over a bump and heard a pop over the speakers and it stopped working, no rattle, all wires still connected, replaced fuses

Well if you have checked wiring and such then I would imagine there is a circuit related problem with the amp. If it doesn't power up at all check the solder joints arround the power supply caps, you may even see where by discoloration of the PCB. The bump you hit could have cause a momentary short in the high current power supply and in turn blown a trace on the PCB open. Just my thoughts. Good luck

I need a remote control bass knob and cable for a Legacy LA590 2

Most of the remote bass control knobs & connectors are the same, regardless of manufacturer. Granted there are different styles & connectors used, but just find one that's compatible with the amplifier you have. You don't state what amp you have (at least I don't see it in desc.) Send me some info & I'll get back to you tonight. Bruce McGowan

Falty Amplifier?

It sounds like the output transistors have shorted. This is VERY common. If you want to try to troubleshoot the problem, I'd need to see photos of the inside of the amp. You'll need a multimeter to check the transistors.

Before opening the amp, remove it from the power source.

Since the resolution is severely limited here, send the photos to me directly ( If you're going to send multiple photos, please zip them and send one file.

Power problem

Do you actually see a fuse in it? If there is a fuse it should typically say on it what the rating is.
