    So it's been a stressful day today; the gain on my amps been quite high for some time from my old head unit. I went to lower it so i can take advantage of the volume.

    Hey guys, I have an amp with a blown output transistor (ADS p640). I'm only using 2 channels and it has 6 channels. Is it possible for me to just remove the shorted transistor so it doesn't blow the fuse, and use channel 3 instead of 2? This is mostly just to test the other parts like the PSU...

    Hey guys so I was listening to music today in my car and my bass sounded muffled and obscure. So I open my trunk to see that my sub had two tears on the housing right by the cone. I don't know if this means I **** out of luck, or if I have a chance to salvage my sub and fix it. Any ideas?
