Default Car amp crap out?

Had an Exile amp installed and used regularly for about 8 years but one day my sub was heavily distorted on low volume. Amp show red lights for front clip/rear clip. Read a bit online for troubleshooting...removed/re-inserted the fuses, both look good, and disconnected audio in, then audio out...red lights still constant...anything else to check or the amp is no bueno?

Check your amp's ground wire where it attaches to the body of the car. It may have come loose or become corroded, I've had bad grounds cause all sorts of amp wackyness in past installs.

Just an update, amp simply crapped out over 8 years of use. Just installed its replacement Fosgate Punch 600.4.

Was thinking about making you an offer for it.

Thinking more about it, I have enough to keep me busy for awhile though..

Do you think it's worth saving? I don't know much about the brand.

It held up well for quite a few years, but tbh I don't know how amps generally hold up in the long run. I you want a project, I'm just interested in covering shipping. PM me if you're interested.
