Question about Rockford Fosgate Punch P5002 Car Audio Amplifier
If you are willing. open up the amp and inspect the connections to the rca's on the side that is not working. check the solder connection by gently moving the rca input plug, see if you can tell if the solder is being pulled up. Re-solder the leads(MAKE SURE YOU DON"T SHORT THE LEADS TO OTHER PARTS OR CONNECTIONS OF THE AMP). If after you do that and it still does'nt work, check the transistors for damage. They're the ones that usually are against the amp housing, for heat dissipation purposes. If no visual seen, check them with an ohm meter and do a continuity test to see if one or more of the transistors are not shorted. You'll hear an audible when you check the leads. To help you out, test the side of the amp with the known good transistors and cross refference with the ones on the bad side. i know it's alot, but a little troubleshooting ain't so bad if it saves u money...

Eyp, most of the time speaker connections blow and fuses wont stop that from happening. They are there to stop the mainboard from frying and not working at all. try running rca splitters to the operational side of the amp. run the sub on 1 channel. you will start hearing a difference but both sides will work. if not, run the splitters from the head unit and bridging it. these are the cheapest solution i could provide
