I found out that I have a leak in my trunk and my amp must have gotten wet and fried itself. I smell a strong burnt electrical smell and I see where a piece has melted. It is a tiny black rectangular piece, and there is a lot of them in the amp. I am pretty good with electrical equipment and I would like to try to fix it. Do you know which piece it is or do I need to show you a picture. If I replace that piece do you think it will work?

There are no schematics for RF amps, normally RF uses standard IRF Mosfets. Can you decribe the area where they blew, Power Supply are usually N-Channel high current type. Outputs can be either N-Ch or P-Ch depending on the Power rail there attached to.
if amp is mounted to back of the box try and move to in front of box near subs or port. the air movement of the sub will help keep the amp cooled. or you can orer some 12v cooling fans and take back plate of the amp and cool it that way. or you can buy higher quality audio, your choice
flip the amp smell the vents if it smells like a blow dryer or just something awful its burnt up agin check connections on the battery if all els fails take a short wire and touch it (A) on the positive wire from the battery (B) to the remote wire do this all on the amp it should come on if so your remote wire is bad or has lost connection
peel the cover completely off the amp and give it some power- if the amp is blown there will be a tiny light lit up on the circiut board that quite simply says "SHORT"-If its blown then theres nothing you can do unless you are a badass of course- but if the amp is dear to you and you want to spend a little money on it to get it up and running again- go to rockfords website and get into the forums and ask the question-where do i get my fosgate fixed and it will pull up some mumbo jumbo but it tells you about a place called LANDIS TECHNICAL that bought up all the parts to their amps and is in the business of restoring the amplifiers to their factory specs and even sends you a new power certificate to go with your new and improved amp.hope that helps you-
