Chances are you have a failure in the final amp stage.

Check the voltage on the buss where the output transistors merge via the equalizing resistors. The voltage here should be very near zero.

Marshall MB4410, with low volume gives no real volume,

Guitar amps have preamp sections (think unpowered audio mixer) and power amp sections (Crown rack-mount amp). An excellent way to isolate audio problems if amp is still producing audio is to check the preamp out (line out). Preamp output distorted = preamp failure. Connect MP3 player to "Power Amp In"...sound distorted = power amp failure. In your case the latter is the case as your "line out" is clean. Also test each speaker for clear sound as speaker cone damage from being overpowered is fairly common. At 300w. I'll assume the failure was not from cranking the volume to loud but a shorted speaker or speaker wiring could zap the power amp in an instant.

Our sound system runs two separate xl 5000 crowns individually to 2 srx728 subs(2241hpl speakers). Amps are run bridged and have been connected to "discrete" inputs on cabinets (I think this is...

More than likely you have lost the speakers... You sent TOO much power to them and likely the voice coils have heated and distorted and are rubbing the pole pieces and hanging up on them. If the voice coils now short some of the windings, next you will lose your amps as well. If you can access the cones, you can try gently moving them in and out with your fingers and you can feel the voice coils rubbing sometimes. REMEMBER ALWAYS check the RMS rating of the speakers against the RMS ratings of the amps... DO NOT fall for the "advertising" things of "peak power" and "program power" ratings... these numbers are to sell equipment... Use RMS continuous ratings when sizing amps to speakers. Typically the RMS continuous ratings are 1/3 of the peak or 1/2 of the program ratings. You will find amplifiers rated either way so you have to dig out the real ratings. In bridged mode the full output of both halves of the amp work together. Your speakers are rated at 1600 Watts continuous... I am not sure I believe that number even... you would be deaf in front of that quickly... Your amps appear to deliver 5000 Watts RMS in bridged mode... over three times what the speaker is rated at. Since you have the amps, set one aside and run each speaker from one side of a single amp NOT using full gain AFTER you get the speakers re-coned. I would recommend putting a fuse in the speaker lead to HELP protect the speakers when repaired.

I bought my g-dec jr form ebay last summer and really like this little amp but this past winter I went to use it, it worked for 3 to 5 min and shut down, but the power light just blinked moderately. I...

This amp uses a TDA2050 chip that has thermal protection. It is also a small amp that is NOT capable of high sound levels. If *********** can't stand to be within 5 feet of this amp you are playing TOO LOUD for this amp and it will shut down until cooled off to protect the amplifier chip. This amp is intended for practice. It would be adequate for sensible listening level in a 10 foot by 10 foot room. If you need more sound you will have to get a bigger amp. I would suggest you get a sound meter and verify the sound level. DO NOT exceed 4 hours at 90 DB... I know a lot of deaf musicians that have lost their hearing and they are not much good anymore.

My crown Itech 4000 left channel is phasing in and out. Could it be a collection of dust problem?

It is POSSIBLE that it could be a collection of dust problem however my guess would be on a loose wire being vibrated by the sound from a nearby speaker.
I would
  1. Clean all dust you see off
  2. Test and see if problem is corrected
  3. If it isnt check to see if there are any loose wires.
  4. If there are no loose wires. Let me know.

TH-15A won't make sound. Comes on, then flashing front light

This probably means there is a failure and the internal protection circuits have activated. It will probably have to go to a shop for repair.

How do you "bridge" a d.j. 2 channel power amp? it

Very carefully... SInce the outputs are not specified as isolated, your speakers would be connected across the hots and the returns would be jumpered.
Then for the two inputs you would drive them balanced into the XLR connectors from a single balanced source and reverse pins 2 and 3 in ONE of the connectors of this Wye cable into one of the two inputs on the amp.

Crown XLS402 amplifier will not work

It is probablly in protect mode due to a failure. This prevents blowing your speakers.

You will need to have or do servicing on it. First verify that you can unplug ALL INPUTS and that speakers are connected and problem of the protect LED exists. A bad input MIGHT be causing this due to a ground loop.

Make sure NONE of your speaker leads are grounded or shorted.
