Hifonics BXI 2010 D
Hello all I have a Hifonics BXI 2010 d 2000 watt amp that has gone into protect mode. I was driving with the volume very low when all of a sudden it sounded as if a bomb went off, the speakers must have went full excursion forward and back,needless to say after I put on a clean pair of shorts and found that my amp (which has performed flawlessly for 2 yrs) had gone into protect mode so I checked all the wires and RCA's and everything was fine. I took the amp out and sent it to a local repair shop in Tulsa and got a call a day later and the gentelman told me there is a short on the board and I would have to send it in to the manufacturer to have it repaired, well if I have to go this far with it I desided to open her up and take a look for my self...Well all the mosfets checked out ok so I dug in a little further and have found myself needing some HELP,I have found an area with a resister running hot 182 degrees to be exact its the one in the picture that has yellow brown brown gold stripe and is surounded by the 2 black things (sorry I dont Know what there called)but they seem to be running a little hot also but only by about 10 degree my question is where to go from here do I pull the resistor and see if it comes out of protect mode or ? note: I found another resistor with the same markings and both of them read 462 on my dmm.
