I have been finding my bad parts with a DMM and a good eye. My amp rack had gotten water in it because like an idiot I had a noise coming from my trunk seal so I stuffed a towel between the seal and the lid. All was good until we had a little rain and the towel wicked water into the trunk and I hardly go in there because there isn't any room for groceries, if you know what I mean. I didn't notice anything until I went to turn it on one morning and there was no sound. I guess it killed my output board and a day later I heard a pop. I have to change a filter, and a whole bunch of FETs, just waiting on parts. Maybe later if you interested I will snap a shot of the board? Polo.

I am not having a hard time but they are kinda pricey. There are 12 power supply FETs, and 8 output monster FETs. The power supply parts are $2.29 ea and the outputs are $8.59 ea! Polo..

thats a good site. other places wont sell just 1 or5 they want you to buy 100. Ive got like 5 broken amps. 3 where given to me broken and 2 broke when i had them. the 1 i realy want to fix is the autotek 1500.1. i tryed taking it to school because im in a basic electrnoics class and theres a couple nerds. I was explaning it to them what happened and they keep telling me that i connected the power and ground wrong. this aggravated me so much i almost threw out all my broken sh*t

yeah...blewm out 1 power transistor, so i know i gotta change all of them.But there ahs to be something else wrong right? I got the amp from my brother after he was adjusting the hertz it blew the fuese. He checked the connections and replace it then it fried.There has to be a reason why it blew.Maybe they were wearing out? idk.
