My Power Acoustik Amp got wet from a beer exploding on it. I instantlly unhooked my amp from all connections and did not put any power to it. I took it home and let it sit inside my house to dry off. I did not however take it apart or put a blow dryer to it. I wish i would have, but i just let it sit ontop of my heater for a while. Once i thought that it was dried out i hooked it all back up to my two 12" Audiobahns. I hooked everything up and I was ready for my system to come back from the dead. The only thing that stopped me was the fact that my fuses blow everytime i give my amp power. I even tried it a month later and every time that i plug in a fuse it instantly blows. As of now I am trying to figure out what is wrong with my amp and repair it. No repair shops are in my area and my only other option is to get a new amp. So i figured I'd try to fix it. I took it apart today and all of the circuits look normal to me. If anyone knows HOW TO FIX A WET AMP or what to do, PLEASE HELP ME!!!!
Hi , now that you have the amp apart , just check the underside of the printed circuit board and check for any corrosion ,rub it with a soft brush . then try connecting without speakers . see if it still blows fuse, if it does then there is a likelihood that your mosfets / outputs may have shorted the first time you reconnected it .

Look for snail trails around your plants. The trail looks like a glossy wet slimy line. Then take the hand trowel and dig a shallow hole to the depth and size of the non-breakable shallow bowl or pie tin in the area you see snail trails.
Pat the earth down around the hole so that It won't crumble into the bowl or tin of beer.
Set a non-breakable shallow bowl or pie tin in the hole.
Fill the bowl or pie tin with any kind of beer. Fill it slightly below the top so the snails will have to crawl in to get to it. Cheap beer works just fine. Once the snails are in the beer they are trapped.
Clear out dead snails and keep putting beer in the bowl every two or three days as it evaporates. You can put more than one bowl of beer out in other areas that are tempting to snails.
Basically, the snails love the beer, they fall in and drown.
This kind of problem is generally bad news, depending on the amount of beer will determine the extent of damage. I can tell if you are lucky to get it going the chances of it breaking down is extremely high, even taking it apart and cleaning it won't be enough. If I were in your shoes I would go after that drunken fool and make him replace the amp because once the board is compromised there is no way to reverse the damage. The ic pins corrode and get into the casing, along with the other components.
Try to connect and external keyboard to it
with the external monitor.
If the shortcut is in the keypads where most off the beer propably came in contact.
will now be seen if its boots up.
If it boots up with external keyboard the ptoblem is in the beer soaked keyboard.
change or clean the keyboard with isoprophanol
to dissolve moisture and beer.
This is the solution. Please vote!!!
