Hey trevor

If its car amps yo messing with, you need to drop a car battery(even a suspect one will do it) across the charger as well to "tank" the ripple off the power from the charger. Even though the charger is DC, it is what we call unsmoothed, providing power that is like pulsed DC power. Most chargers are also not that high power and will sag when you crank up the amp. The battery will provide enough juice to carry the current drawer This is exactly what I use in the past for repairing high power amps on the bench. If you have any questions, happy to help you out. Cheers

Check your speaker wiring, looks like you have a short somewhere and the amp is going Thermal. Use a tester, if the cables into the amp read below 4 ohms you are in overload. Blessings...

Car wont start-not a gig

it sounds as if you might have to replace the battery, if your battery is shot you can still get a boost and the car will run because the alternator produces electricity which should take car of the cars functions and top up the charge on the battery. if the battery is no longer taking the charge or not holding it as soon as you shut it off it will not have enough power to start the starter. A lot of automotive place will do a check on your battery if you take it to them.

please note that i'm not a mechanic and this is just based on my own experiance

No sound?

Check the outputs on the stereo. Maybe there's no audio signal going to the amp.
