Found a Velodyne SPL-800 Series II subwoofer on craigslist for $35. Only problem is it won't turn on supposedly. It has a Class D digital amplifier.

I'm thinking this is a valid risk given the 1000W RMS amp...... Could always retro the enclosure if it is in good shape, but if I could fix the amp, what a steal....

any thoughts?

Pics of internals. Only one thing my novice eyes see. Two of the solder joints look dark. Other than that I don't "see" anything wrong and have no idea where to start with the dmm.

Also, the aluminum cage can't be removed without desoldering two chips that pass through the holes, which I don't have the equipment for.
