Default PPI A600.2

Amp powers up and plays but it has a loud hum thru the speakers like engine noise and has barley any output..

I checked the normal stuff any ideas?

Have you checked the RCA shield for DC or any of the op-amps for DC on the output pins?

Check the 10 ohm 2 watt resistors behind the RCAs they blow open when the amp get abused to prevent current from flowing back into the HU. I actually stock them just for this failure mode its pretty common. They may look perfectly Ok but you must ohm them out and they usually open up completely but I have seen some 1 k ohm readings before , so anything not 10 ohms replace them.
When they blow open the ground of the input is open so you can get hum and noise issues even though the amp works somewhat. Open gain pots can also cause issues similar to your description.

On the 600.2 there are drivers located dead center of each bank of outputs. But what drives those are located on the SIP module. Depending on which version you have you should see plastic green and black Toshiba drivers to the outputs. They did vary by version so they might be using other devices but they will be a set of PNP and NPN drivers located dead center of the outputs...hope this helps some...

Those appear to be the original devices. I have not had to replace any in a while, and I try to stick with original parts to not introduce any abnormalities in the original design.
Perhaps Perry can suggest you a good replacement set. I would trust his judgment...

I agree, use the originals if they're available but if they are not, the MJE15030 and MJE15031 should work.
