Hi!
I was unable to register at 41hz so I'll post my problem here instead.

I am building a boominator (Great design Saturnus!) for all the summers festivals. I bought an amp6 from 41hz and I put it in a modified metal casing. When i was done with the building of the boominator and only hade exterior jobs left, such as painting and mounting of solarpanels.

I decided to temporarily plug the amp in so I could play while doing the rest of the work. Everything sounded great and loud as I expected:). But after two days I was going to going to start the amp, what I didn't see was that the 3.5mm(aux) cable was lying on the backside of the on/off button when I turned it on. A small spark between the aux and the on/off cable got me really nervous. I openen the metal casing and I saw smoke and it smelled burned.

I took it down to our local home electronics guru but all he found out was that a metal film on the circuit board hade burned up. He bypassed that with a small cable and he told me that he couldn't see if the chip was intact or not. I took it back home but it didn't work, no sound, humming or no nothing.

Since the Amp6 isn't that expensive but not that cheap to just buy another I was thinking of troubleshooting it myself first. I tried to look at 41hz but I couldn't figure out what to look for.

Long story short:
Short-circuit my auxillary jack with power from 12v battery and I don't know what the problem is.

Do you guys have any idea of what it is?

Best Regards
Cigma
