What would be the best way to wire 2 1800w 4 ohm boss compact speakers to the boss cx950 amp

As the amp cannot support a 2ohm load you have to hook each sub up to one channel on the sub and you can't run them in bridged mode.

Blown amp, on circuit board, connecting fuse and power connect.

These amplifiers dont employ reverse polarity protection that most higher priced ones do.
The amplifier(s) are definately in need of repair - probably power supply - IF boss sells parts.
Chances are, however, the repair will meet or exceed the cost of a new (appropriately rated) entry level amplifier.
Just about anything can be repaired.... question is, are you willing to pay?

No power to the amp i touched the power wire to the side of the amp

It probably burned a trace on the circuit board.

With the amp hooked up normally and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage), do you read 12v DC anywhere on the case of the amp (black meter probe on the ground terminal of the amp)?

If there is no voltage on the case, confirm that you have 12v on the B+ and remote terminals of the amp (black probe on ground terminal of the amp).

No Power to the Amp

open the amp and look for a fuse either on a circuit board or on wires inside. trace power wires onto board.

Directed 2400 amplifier turned off and has not come back on?

Hi, Based on your post/description, three possible reasons: 1. There is no power going into the amp. The fuses may be good but there is no +12VDC in the big red wire. You have to use a voltmeter to check if there is 12V at the end of the line/wire before it goes inside the amp. In some cases, the fuse might be good but there is corrosion on the fuse terminals and the metal contacts of where it is placed; 2. There is no switching signal to activate/power on the amp. In some setup this is a blue, yellow or orange wire. This can be activated by either the ignition switch of your car, the headunit/stereo, or even a manual on/off switch. This has to receive a 12V also to activate the amp; 3. Internal fault of the amp. The big red wire has 12V, the fuses are good, there is signal 12v to activate amp, but still no power; there is something wrong inside the amplifier. It has to be opened up and diagnosed. This may involve component level repair, circuit analysis, electronics and soldering so you might be better off seeking the services of a qualified professional. Hope this gives you some ideas and work out for you. Good luck and pls post back how things turn up. Kind regards.

Amlifer wont turn on

some amp has glass or plastic fuses along with a pic fuse a little green tear drop shape fuse on the board that plugs in like a fuse, see if yours has one of them if not then I'm sorry your unit is bad.
