I made a post on Diy the same day as I did here. If nothing comes from it, it is what it is.
Ok just found your thread there:
No one probably responded because
1. schematics just aren't out there for these amps
2. you said you didn't have the amp in your possession, so not much help can be offered without very specific problem symptoms.
3. You also posted in the "Class D" section, so non of the car audio experts seen your thread! They primarily hang out in the Car Audio sub forum. You want to navigate to the "car audio" section I linked to. Car Audio - diyAudio < Car Audio section
Might I suggest a new thread over there, with the amp brand / model in the title
, and a clear description of the problems and perhaps an inside photo of the amp
, this way others know precisely which model / board it uses.
Since your friend will be repairing it (I presume), might be good for him to ask all the questions since he has the amp in his possession this way he can follow along with the help.
That Tantrum 500.2 is also a class AB amp as far as I recall, not class D.
Perry Babin is one of the most knowledgeable repair techs around, if he can't walk you through a repair on diyaudio, nobody can anywhere. The user 1moreamp over there was the resident PG nut and a good amp tech, but I think he had some health problem, not sure if he's still around.
That said if you can't find the schematics (going to be next to impossible), and your friend needs help with a specific "problem" / "symptom" the amp has, try again over at diyaudio.
Hopefully it isn't one of those amps that had to be seen in person to be repair.
