Are you sure that your supply is capable of powering this amp?

30amp supply, doesn't dip while it powers up.

Maybe the clip circuit trips when it powers up initially. It has a self test on power. I'll monitor the voltage.

I paralleled a battery with my supply, no more clip light on power up. Supply must have dipped during the amp power up test.

The signal still seems noisy, maybe these amps are this way?

These and Stetsom amps are essentially the same. The Stetsom amps that I've had in the shop were all very noisy. These were the older models but I don't think that there were many improvements. If it's operating at the right frequency (likely is because it's determined by a crystal oscillator) and the output filter components are OK, I'd think that it's normal.

I hooked it up to a 2 ohm sub and it did fine. I will install it in my car for a final test.

Tough to load a 8K amp with my setup.

Did you ever land a schematic for this amp?
