Default Alpine MRV-1002

I got this amp from a friend. The fuse holder looks like it has gotten hot at 1 point.

I reflowed the solder on the fuse holders and tryed powering it up.

The amp will draw excessive current.

So i checked the power supply fets and the output transistors. All test good.

So wondering what i check now since the amp draws excessive current?

Does it draw excessive current without remote voltage applied?

It only draws excessive current when the remote is applied

caraudioguy, you need post only once. While you are under moderation, it sometimes takes a while before someone clears the queue. Patience my friend.

Is it blowing only one of the on-board fuses or is it blowing both of them?
