The only thing i can think of is that my input voltage was too high. I was messing around with my Audio control Epicenter at the time. I had it up pretty loud and then all the sudden i could smell something. I shut the system down and proceeded home. When i pulled my amp i heard a rattle. Upon further inspection one of the resistors melted off and another one was on its way out. I soldered the two that were backing out and resoldered the other two. The only thing that i can think of is that when my epicenter is linked on all 3 channels it doesn't show the true output voltage on the indicator lights.

Carnage and destruction.
The one that had backed out on one side

The one that had completely backed out

All Better

Wow...obviously too much current through that. Can't really tell you why though.
