definatley check the fuses. touching the power and ground together should blow ur fuses not fry ur amp.

Some amps have reverse polarity protection, but I dont know about Hifonics.

By the way if u scroll down a bit on the Amp forum page there is a post called "when the ground touches the power" it might be of some help to u too.

You should have waited for the next day..
I know u can get anxious at times just to get it bumpin...

Did u check inline fuses, and amp fuses?
I doubt the amp has an internal fuse.
You may not have had any protection circuitry on it...
Sounds like you zapped output transitor.

Dude dont suffer, just take ir to Tijuana Mexico, hurry , before the extra border reaches tijuana, and they will fix it for about 200 pesos (20 dollars), thats what i did with my Punch P6002, i burned two resistors
i ordered the resistors from rockford fosgate, i also orered resistors from digikey.com and i did a lot of research , and i actually found all the info i needed , when i got the resistors, i tried welding them to where the burned ones were, and no luck, so i gave up and in a chance i had to go to Tijuana, Mexico, i got it fixed, for 20 dollars,
