SOURCE: my sonamp 1230 seems to
Try to check if the blower is working, If not then first look for the blower sensor and clean it and resolder parts pin joints and associated parts also.If ever the blower is working fine then the problem is in amplifier section caused by change value resistor or leak capacitor or cold ,loose or crack solder joint parts this the common problem of over heating amplifier caused by abnormal distribution of current,try all of this,so your receivers works normal again.
Hope it may help you;

1. Check that the trimpots on the front panel are all the way up.
2. The speaker relay on the Amp PCB may be bad. Over time the fingers can warp and won't make contact any longer.

I am assuming you are using the standard sonamp 260 not a 260x3
and that when you say you are getting sound on only 1 pair that means only on 1 side (left or right channel only?)
Are using a speaker selector box? you must to regulate the resistance (ohms)
if so first unhook all but on pair of speakers and see if both channels are working.
if they do your problem is in the speaker selector not the amp if no then check to see what the amp level is set to. These are the two small holes on the front right of amp make sure they are set about equal at around half way up.
If that doesn't work flip the RCA cables coming to the amp perhaps you have a bad cable if that doesn't work make sure your receiver (source) is outputing a stereo signal to begin with.
lastly 8 sets of speakers off 1 amp? that's pushing it.even with a high quality Niles or speakercraft selector that controls the resistance going to an amp I wouldn't go past 5 sets.
The right way to do it would be to use 260x3 or a sonance or speakercraft 12 channel amp.

It's not bridgeable according to the manual.
Who specs an amp at 3 ohms anyway? Your Carver might be just as effectively powerful.
