Default Picked up a Pioneer Spec 2

It's seen better days and it's missing the top and bottom covers. Looked like the PCB behind the meter got bumped and split a trace near the edge. I repaired the trace and now I'm tracking down why the left meter only works when I apply pressure to the board. The amp itself is working though and boy does it have some power.

Do you guys think someone would still desire this amp if the covers are missing? I can't imagine they'd be easy to track down. All the knobs, switches, and terminals are all ok.

I'll wipe it down and I'll throw up some pics.

I don't know what happened in your endevour but here is my 2 cents worth. I have the Pioneer SPEC 1 pre amp, and SPEC 2 Power amp which you have. It is an awesome AMP.

It will do 250watts RMS continuous per side but will give you peaks of 500WRMS so no clipping at those levels. It has protection so if you overdrive it too hard it will kick out untill the levels drop. That is annoying as heck so you learn to crank it down a notch. It protected the electronics but no guarantee for your speakers!

But as you know the SPEC 2 weighs a ton! PCB damage is not uncommon if handled roughly.

I have the service manuals if you need any info. Intact units are on EBAY on a reg basis.
