Good day.
Have you checked on the fuse terminals?
Maybe the zener diode along B+ and ground got shorted when supply was reversed.
Check for for the continuity along the supply line. Also, consider if there was a sudden surge of supply that busted parts along the filter line of your unit.

Amp doesn't come on

Hello rheabarb,

You did not say whether or not you checked the wiring going to your subs. Many times, a shorted or grounded speaker wire will cause an amp to fail. And if the amp powers up OK with the subs disconnected, I'd suspect one or more of the wires.

Hope this helps.

Lose power to half of the systems

My solution turned out to be a fusible link behind the battery. Cost me $55 for a tow and another $75 to track down the problem. I wonder if yours is a loose connection on the same line as the fusible link. Or maybe yours has a circuit breaker. My question is, why did the fusible link go in the first place, and what caused the relays to click off and on--maybe the computer got confused?
