check the fuse on the power wire (+) not the ground wire .. i had a kicker 1500.1 on 2 l7 15\'s and when the bass would hit hard the fuse would vibrate and cause the amp to go into safe mode.. after re wireing the whole truck i then found out it was the 150amp fuse holder
Yes check that the water hasn't left behind a "Bridge" between some of the soldered connections.. Perhaps on the "Output Devices" Pins/Leads It may be worthwile CAREFULLY cleaning the board with a high quality PCB cleaner & toothbrush... a Solvent, Look at the PCB with a magnifing glass and see if there are inded any "Tracks" left behind when the water dried off. And Yes check all fuses fusable links etc...
it sounds like you pop the power Reg. transistor or one of the Amp. chips instide. Some Amps has a pic fuse inside on the main board its green very small shape like a tear drop with a wire comeing out both ends it would in a socket some times white or black.
