I have an amplifier that I overdrew, because I used a 1 ohm load when it only goes stable down to 2 ohms. Now, when I power it on, the woofers get power, but totally out of synch with my music. They sound like machine guns "bump bump bump bump...." really rapidly. I can slow these bursts down or speed them up with the frequency control knob, so I know the amp gets power and the frequency knob and gain knob works...I want to repair it, anyone know what part on the board could have gone bad?

a: bad ground or b: blown amp.
most likely b.

this is why I told you not to run the amp at 1 ohm.

well the amp is fine. turns out, the rca input jacks are loose, thus causing much signal interferance. i just need to find a good way to secure them better, maybe resolder the to the board.

okay...not out of the woods it seems...the amp works when the engine is off. When at 13.8-14 volts(engine running)the amp exhibits the same behavior, "Bump bump....". Anyone have any idea why the amp works at 12v and not at 13.8v? I know it has something to do with the power regulator in the amp...anyone else? All help is GREATLY appreciated.
