I got this amp from a neighbor. I hooked it up and nothing happens. No power led, no nothing. I took it to a sound repair place and they said it had a blown channel and that it would cost 70$ to repair so I told them never mind. Is there anything I can do to repair this myself?
Well im not sure ifyou have seen into an amp case but its quite complicated if you havent got the electrical exprience as the pros do but it could be as simple as finding the blown component and replacing it however when something blows it doesnt mean that its visable, this is where either a multi meter or load tester comes into play, so yea it can be complicated.
I rekon if its a good amp it could be worth it have a look in google and find specs
Sorry this is the best i can do without looking at it

hello sound to me you may have burnt the main power wire to the body or other metal on the car .. if i was you i would first check the fused if there not popped trace the wire from the battery to the amp see if you can find a burnt spot on the wire it should have a burnt spot on the ajasent part of the car.. untell you find that wire it will drain your battery "try to disconnect the amp wire from the battery recharge or jump start your car run your car for 20 mins" that should fix your car... email@example.com if you have questions
New amp sounds messed up... grounds are bad and sometimes the amp tries to draw power but cant... So it immediately goes to protect... All jacked up... Audio specialist could help... Repair shop if local ..
Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If the protect light remains on, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
Do you have the switch or activate wire on the new amp. to the right hookup? If you do, then theres a problem with the amp and if your not a tech these can be a difficult thing to trouble shoot. Take back the amp or seek out a pro to test it on a bench. Good Luck
