It sounds like yo shorted the speaker wires together for a short time and smoked the output section of the amp. The amber light is an indication that the amp is in protect mode. If you attempt to power up the amp and still have the amber light even with all speaker wires disconnected, the amp needs repair. The output transistors for that side will need to be replaced.

My buddy recently gave me his svt-6 pro amp head and there is barely any volume coming out of it when its cranked


Assuming you've tried other known working cables, speakers, and instruments, I'd suggest just taking it into a pro repair shop. If you start poking around inside without knowing what you're doing you risk frying the amp further or perhaps frying yourself.

No base in one speaker


Usually this is because the base driver in your speaker is shot. I have repaired hundreds of amplifiers and have never found just the BASS being low at the output of the amp. If the amp is working, then the likelyhood of the speaker being defective is good. A quick test is to just swap speakers and see if the problem moves to the other channel.

If you have a very old transistorized amplifier, you may have a large value coupling capacitor between the actual amplifier circuitry and the speaker output. This is because the older amps had a large DC voltage at the output of the amplifier and this had to be removed or the speaker would be damaged. This capacitor may have finally given up the ghost and needs replacing. While you are at it, you may as well replace both as the other is soon to go.

My bet is that the woofer in the speaker cabinet has blown.

I own a Aragon 4004 mkII. Recently the the banana plugs on the right speaker output touched bridging a contact. The amp had been turned on and left on for up to 10min with this short occuring. Now the...


Tough one. I repair these for a living. A number of possibilities exist. Likely output transistors are blown on the bad channel. Fuses are likely blown. If the fuses are BLACK inside, don't just put new fuses in, more damage WILL occur. This is a bit more than 'good with a soldering iron' will fix. You need to know how to test an output transistor. You need to look up the transistor type so you know what it is. A service manual will be a big help (I could not find one online.) If more than two outputs are gone on the one side, all should be changed, they are supposed to be MATCHED. Remove and replace all damaged outputs, or replace them all if two are blown. Find the driver transistors and check them for short circuits. After repair, start the amp on a dummy load of a 250watt light bulb to prevent destroying the amp if there is a problem. If you are unsure of any part of this, find an electronics technician to help.

Technics a900 mk2 amplifier cut out sound to speakers.


First of all, Marcus, you will need to check if you have blown off the speakers. Just remove and use a good 1.5 AA cell to test both the speakers. If ok connect and switch on. try to hear if the relay is clicking or if you hear any noise. If not disconnect, open the set and use a multimeter to check if the output had failed. Check on the sections only if your are familiar working with circuits or else it might not be recommended. Get help from a friend to check the protect circuitt and the main board for failure of the mosfets/ outputdrives. If you can reset the amp do so by keeping the menu pressed on swithed on. or keep it off for anout 12 hours. it will reset on its own. I hope this helps. Good day

I have no sound coming from my amp a rotel rb 981 and rc 980bx . I was changing speaker wires and am afraid i have blown a fuse [but cannot find external one]. powers up but no sound


it is never advised to change wires while the amp is switched on. you may have blown your diodes on your post amp then you have a problem.
have you tried other speakers tested your speaker on another system to rule them out as OK?
if you open the case be careful not to touch any large capacitor as they may still be chared and can give you a nasty belt.
any fuses should be easy to find and to see if they are blown. ensure you get the same rate fuse when you replace. if you see any charing of diodes then i think repair may be costly. good luck.

Which speakers can I use?


You can use any wattage speakers as long as they are not less than the watts from your amp. However you can still use lower wattage speakers as long as you don't turn up the volume full or two loud! Otherwise your damage the speaker.
HOWEVER you must get the ohms matched up right. You must never connect any speaker with a low Ohm to a high rated amp. Or you will blow the output stage transistors or IC.
Most Amps are 8 ohms, so you could connect an 8 or 16 etc, but not a 4 ohm.
