Hifonics Brutus BX1000D problems...
Hello, any help will be much appreciated.

I purchased this amp about a year ago and it has been running great until it stopped turning on. I metered the both the remote turn on wire and 4gauge power disconnected from the amp. Both wires test 12 volts like they should. As soon as I connect the amp to the wires, The voltage on +12 shows ~ 6v and never powers on. I took the amp apart and the power and speaker wires are connected and solid. I checked the resistance on each transistor on the board. All came back with a reading. Some were 0, some where 2 and some were 5. This is without any power connected. I just took some pictures and will post them up when i get the camera connected in the next hour.

I don't have much experience with electronics but was hoping for some guidance in the right direction.

Thanks in advance.

I can be sure, but i think your transistors are burnt out, you will have to get a multimetre and test each one out, am sure one or 2 will be burnt out, there isnt much else that goes wrong on amplifiers these days.
Good luck
