Question about Legacy LA838 Car Audio Amplifier
I never hooked the ground to the power and power to ground i know what im doing. what i meant was that when i hooked either one up it would start smoking. i have already fixed it a few times before. i just wanted another opinion on what was happening, the amp was working fine and then it just quit and i took it apart to check the terminals and a wire was off so i put it back on. i may not be an installer but i have been hooking up stereos for the past 5 years i may not know everything but i know my stuff. so i wont be hurting myself.

Gee I would think that it is kind of obvious; your amp is blown. Just because it doesn't blow fuses doesn't mean much. If you hook the power up to the ground input and the ground to the power and then turn it on you pretty much toasted the amplifier. If you don't know why the amp is smoking, but you're trying to fix it yourself, you are basically telling me that you have no business doing so. I have been an installer for 15 years and even I am not dumb enough to try to fix a bad amplifier. Do everyone a REALLY big favor; stop messing around with something that you don't understand of have knowledge about before you hurt yourself.
