So I did something extremely stupid and lazy but before I here how stupid I am just know I am kicking myself now. My amp started to cut in and out. It wouldnt cut out often but it did once in a while (I could indicate it by the light on my dial. I ended up turning off the output from my stereo until I tore it apart, but didnt unplug, or anything, and amp still turned on with stereo. Now my light kept intermitantly coming on and off for a few weeks with the amount the light was on getting shorter and shorter until it didnt turn on at all(I know, its bad). I finally checked and my power wire was corroded and not giving the power needed. So I changed the wire, but now the Amp doesnt turn on at all. My question is would I have fried my amp by having the power intermitantly on and off to it or would it be a fixable thing? Fuses are fine and the circuitboard shows no signs of physical damage and all the activator, power wire, ground etc are all working fine with my multimeter. Thanks
yes it's possible to damage the amp that way due to lack of sufficient current to feed the amp when the wire was corroded. Perry Babin, owner of bcae1.com, is over on DIYaudio. If you check that forum, in the car audio section, he can help you trouble shoot the internals of the amp, if you have a meter, and possibly a scope. He's very patient and helpful when it comes to that specific task. Heck, if you want, tell him I sent you over to him.
