    so can i just buy a new op amp chip and solder it where the old one was?

  • lazzyb0y46 Feb 04, 2010

    well when i took the cover off there seems to be only one piece that looks like the 8 pin op chip so if your right that it is the op chip that stopped working that should be it

  • lazzyb0y46 Feb 04, 2010

    well when i took it to best buy a guy in the auto soundsystem install store came out and tested all of the terminals and wires connecting to the amp and the outlets that are on the amp itself and then said something inside burned out so i hope you are right and its the op amp and i apperciate you help.

Yes you have a internal fault of the amp. the circuit that puts it into safe mode is bad and that is a very small chip on the board know as a op amp. needs to be repaired.

    you can but to understand what one and to test it to make sure it is only that bad takes years of experience. plus the tools required because it is so small would out wieght the cost of taking it in for repair.

I have a 2007 Honda Civic 2 door bought the car found the legacy LA 960 in the trunk worked great for 1 year took on a 500 mile ride and woofer gave out. Took to a repair shop they said fuse of 20 amps...


1. Stop going to this shop.
A fuse that keeps blowing is a sign of a problem. You never replace a fuse with one of a higher amperage because the idea is the fuse is suppose to blow before the the wires melt and catch on fire. The reason it stopped working and the fuse didn't blow is probably be cause the wire did melt someplace and you are lucky the car didn't burn. If it did burn and the insurance company found the 40 amp fuse, they would probably have refused to pay.
The idea that a repair shop would do this tells me that they don't know what they are doing. Read this

After 7 yrs of use, it just stopped working


I agree that It could be one of the other reasons listed here.....

But, I had the same problem with a 1,000 watt Kenwood amplifier and it worked like a boss for the whole two years that I had it and then one day the box that I had my subs in somehow came apart and after I changed out boxes the amp quit working. It came on but it wouldn't work anymore except for when I turned it a certain way or sat it against something.. Anyway it ended up being a loose female port plug on the inside where the auxilary cables plug up.

Hope it helps.

@runs hot motor feels slow doesnt hit hard


Bosch brute is made to work all day every day and will continue to do so if it is not over or under powered and properly lubed. If not powered correctly, motor will not turn at full rpm, get very hot and burn brushes to point that auto stop feature will stop motor (brush will push away from armature, or burn switch). The hammer will overheat if too long or wrong gauge of cord is used. Also if run on generator with voltage /cycles incorrect. Under normal use, motor will not get very hot. Another problem with overheating is that the grease will melt out of range to do any proper lubrication. If you are sure that it is getting proper voltage /amps then may need lubrication or bearing work. Remove bearing cover and turn armature by hand. It should be easy to turn. If stiff, suspect bearing/grease. With amp meter connected, check amp draw and compare to rated amps.

Take it back as it is still under warranty. If there was anything you could do other than letting it cool down it would be in the instructions.( which you have since it is brand new.)

Burn fuses


Something inside is short-circuited. All components look fine thans to burned fuse. Don't try it anymore with new fuses. You need to get a repairman to check it out.

Subs stopped working & protect light on the amp is red...


well at this point i would say it is both,, the subs fried because your amplifier passed dc [direct current] and fried the voice coils on your subs....return them if they are under warranty,, the amplifier sound like you either operated it beyound its specifications or it has a defective output stage allowing it to pass or leak dc....it turned the voice coils into the equivelent of the runners in a toaster oven....when an amp passes dc it is going to do so to whatever speakers you hook to it....so either bring it to a shop to be fixed/ return it to place purchase for exchange or throw it away.....or you will continue to experience the same problems....I am sorry..ps the amp goes into protection when it detects a short...[ the short is produced by the amp and it is detecting its own fault and putting it in to protection after it BURNS up your drivers....

Burnt smell


If something is burnt,something made it burn !! These things dont smoke for no reason. Have the amp checked out, and also have the speakers and all the wiring checked for a partial short. Good Luck
