Default have a question and need a suggestion.

So I hop in the truck tonight, start it up, hear a weird spark noise, then smell smoke. I look behind seat and there's smoke coming from inside amplifier. I have a hifonics Glx 1000.1 and a sundown sd-12. I didn't even have the volume on the h/u up when this happened. Has this happened to anyone? I'm assuming if the remote Wire was shorted out, the radio fuse would pop, and if the positive cable was shorted, that fuse would blow. The amp is mounted to a piece of carpeted mdf with a rubber tube folded up between the amp mounting legs and the wood. Just weird to me. I got the amp from Sonic, but I don't have the original box so I don't think they Would warranty it. This being said, Anyone know of an amp that would run this nicely for around $130? I believe I got the dual 4 ohm one but can't remember. Thanks guys

P.s. I have an mtx te801d laying around...says it will do [email protected] . Think that will be ok? I'm still wondering what happened to this amp though..

Ok so I pulled the Hifonics out. Took the fuses out, and one of the fuses had (what appears to be) solder melted to both of the blades. Took the back plate off of the amp and I couldn't see anything burnt, but I could smell it a little bit. I got a DMM and got around 2 ohms on the sub, and also checked the remote wire, power, and ground Wire and they were all at the numbers they should be. I took the MTX te801d and hooked that up and it works good so far, no smoke. I'm just wondering what the hell happened to this amp.

Here is a pic of the fuse:

Call Sonic and explain your situation. Worst case scenario, they won't warranty it. Doesn't hurt to ask.
I've had an amplifier go up in smoke for no apparent reason.

Default Re: have a question and need a suggestion.

Well I pulled the back plate off, so I'm guessing that voids the warranty, if there was one. I think I remembered saying the amp had a 2 year warranty, but I remembered that only after I read on sonic's website something about all items having a 1 year warranty, and after I pulled the back plate off.well at least it kind of feels good knowing that an amp magically going up in smoke hasn't only happened to me. Just picked up a brz 1200 off eBay for $100 shipped. I guess ill hope for the best on this one lol

they accepted my sisters brz1200.1 back without box or papers. hers just quit alltogether no warning just stopped putting sound out. but that is useless to know now as you voided it by opening the amp =P

Default Re: have a question and need a suggestion.

did you find/see any bad solder points....my memphis had a bad solder joint on the negative and one day when it was a lil loud it too smoked a bit and one last arc and no more sound......for me was just a re-solder and all is good. maybe it's nothing major and could be an easy fix.
even after pulling the back off there is still a chance that they will help you, no harm in asking.


good luck on your journey
take care and have fun

I didn't see anything that looked like it wasn't supposed to be there. The only thing that looked out of place was that solder on the fuse. Yeah I know I should've waited on taking the back off. I just figured that I'd see half of the board burnt though lol. I guess I will call tomorrow or friday. Too bad I couldn't make some stickers to put on the cover like the ones they had lol

I had a BRZ burn up without playing it but I didn't open mine and had it replaced. No problems since, going on 2 years with no issues.

No verdict yet, but I want to Power it back on to see if anything happens again. My Brz1200 just came in today, a freaking month later. The @sshole shipped it in the original box with a few pieces of newspapers tucked on the sides of it. Not going to give him a rating until I hear it play pretty loud for 5-10 min straight.

Never heard of that before. I'm guessing that just empties the caps if there was anything in them?
