Question kenwood KAC 1020 amp

kenwood KAC 1020 car amp, i need some output specs as i got this amp without a manual, however no-one on and off the net has heard off it. Two channel, black, big and heavy about 10-12 kg's and comes with 4 x 15 amp fuses. Guys - throw me a ******* bone....for pete's sake. NB Its two channel 'cos it has diagrams for bridge mode.

I paid about the equivalent of $30 for this amp, in stereo mode only the right channel works and in bridge mode it works. Any ideas as to whats happening with the left channel?

you have the same symptoms I had when repairing an amp where the gain knob was broken. Turns out htere was somehting wrong with the ground ( I dont remember exactly) where I had made a solder bridge.. so bridged worked, but only one channel at a time worked, as once the RCA in's made a ground for that channel it cut out or somehting liek that... test the variable resistor that is the gain knob, and also try to plug in only one RCA ata time and see if that helps.

Of course, you could also just have one blown channel ???
