Arrow Lost output after amp swap

My setup before amp swap...

Hdc3 10 on a belva "2000"

Just now did a direct swap with a brand new B2 quota mk3, for some reason the output is just not there. I have double checked everything, ohm at the amp is right, speaker wires are correctly wired at the amp, voltage at the amp is right, rcas are tight. Gain is good bit higher on the B2 than the belva was. I just dont believe that the belva was even close to the same quality and am kind of lost.

Master slave switch or rcas on the output instead of input

Just went out to double check that, rcas are connected to the input side and switch is set to master

How are you setting gains? By ear, by eye, dmm?

I've always done it by ear and never had a problem, I have the gain further up than I have ever had in my life on this b2 (about 3/8 up) and still the output isn't there. I really have not gone any higher as I feel a problem lies elsewhere.

It might not be convenient but try swapping rca's. You may have damaged a connector while unplugging it?

The amp is easy to get to right now, I have my seat out (it will be under it for the install). I will try swapping rcas now.

swap it back {the belva is rated for more power}

maybe the belva's ratings are legit {reminds me of an AQ1200}

4 Ω: 1 x 540

2 Ω: 1 x 900

1 Ω: 1 x 1200

vs the B2 quota;
4 Ω: 1 x 400

2 Ω: 1 x 750

1 Ω: 1 x 1000

Why'd you swap amps to begin with?

Swapped rca's and changed nothing, if anything it was a hair less output.

I swapped them because I wanted a better quality amp, I wasn't expecting it to be audibly louder or anything....just wanted a more solid of an amp.
