Looks like we need to reverse engineer it or get a schematic.

hello,

I hope this could help. This is a P22 Spaul Amplifier. This came to my shop today for service. Maybe you could get some clues. Observing your pics, the burned components are a rectifier diode and two resistors.

no damage on the driver stage or the ouput, the turn on delay/dc protection ckt. is the problem, It takes 45 seconds for the relay to activate, While the "normal" is around 5 to 10 seconds.

Thanks audiomachines but I have sincescrapped the original circuit , I have reverse engineered it and I found out the topology used was Class AB with the output in series connection to handle the +- 100V supply.I have replaced it with a Class H design.
