Well they had only one regulator that output 12v. They had packs of assorted capacitors for cheap, but I didn't know if I should buy disc type or electrolytic. I'm going to Fry's now to see what they have.

I got thermal grease, 4 capacitors 1uf 100v non-polarized electrolytic and two positive voltage regulators. This stuff is NTE brand, so if it is junk let me know so I can throw it out and get good stuff. I also ordered the oscilloscope. Thanks for pointing me in this direction, I'm looking forward to using this.

NTE is overpriced and can lead to problems, especially in class D amps but for this, they will be perfectly fine.

Go to youtube and watch some of the various videos on how to operate the scope before it arrives.

Good to know for future reference. I don't know the first thing about a scope, so youtube sounds like a good idea.

The oscilloscope arrived in pieces, broken in other words. The idiots that sold it shipped it in an envelope. This keeps happening to me. The last two amps I bought were damaged in shipping and, believe it or not, the ms-275 I bought was shipped in a god damn envelope! People need to get a clue.

They may just send you another one and tell you to keep this one. Ebay will make sure you don't get ripped off.

I used Amazon, so maybe the same deal. It would be awesome if I ended up with two since I was just given a broken amplifier to try and repair. One scope I definitely want permanently installed in my car.
