Figure I'd post this here also to hopefully get a quicker response than in the amp section.
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 remotewire*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..
