Questions & Answers
Have you tried turning up the vol/gain control? Are all the switches on the amp set for full spectrum output? Are you sure you are using the RCA input and not the RCA output jacks (if it has such)? Check all the switches to be sure they are in the "most default" position. Something you might try, is to make a jumper wire to temporarily jump from the audio input ground to the power supply (chassis of car) ground. If this makes it work then you have a input ground problem in the amp. Good luck. P.S. As for epoxying the trace down on your other amp. If the foil is still in good condition then it should be ok to epoxy it down. If it needs some "help" then do that first, then epoxy.

What size preamp equalizer do i need for a 2000 watt amplifier for car subwoofers?
There is nada wrong with your preamp and changing it will accomplish nothing. If your channels are allegedly clipping it is due to the fact that it is being over driven. A bad preamp could not over drive your amp!
Have to be careful with tone controls at high levels. Every 3db increase compels amp to double power at that frequency. So if you are blasting at 2000 watts and you boost a control by that amount, your amp will put out 4000 watts and clip. If plus 6db then it is 8000 watts!
