Well im in a little pickle here. big problem, BIG!!! i had bad wiring so my amp shortened, now i have to get it fixed, ok, but now when i tried to put another amp to replace it, the subwoofers dont work, no sound!!! i thought i had blown them out but i then tried the amp on a 6x9 and still no sound, the amp does power up, but NO SOUND!!! what could it be?
I think somethings fxcked up with your wiring or something
If the amp has RCA line-in jacks. try hooking it up to a portable cd player via a cheap cable you can get at radio shack or somewhere. This won't help if your amp is dead, but it will let you know if your input wires are crap.
could be that when u shorted out, the amp out fuses on the back of the head unit for the rca's, i doubt that u actually fried. my rockford amp the first time i installed it in my car, it took a few minutes t charge up before it hit, every time i unhooked the power lead i had to wait a while for the subs to hit, i dont know if thats hat your goin through or not.
