**** CA!!!! **** THIS! **** XTANT! **** MY ELECTRICAL! **** MEMPHIS!
alright, im coming home from school today and im bumping, hu on 0 bass (i can usually go up to +3 for daily), amps set with DMM, electrical is 2 group 8D 150ah batteries, 160amp alt, kenwood hu, memphis rca's, memphis mojo D2 subs. nothing fancy by any means. just sitting at a light and my one side of subs stop working (2 subs) and i just turn off the sub on the hu thinking nothing of it. i look behind me at the subs and their stuck in the down position. i go ****. ****. ****. ****. so i go ok, after the light ill pull over, turn off my car, turn off the amps and they will be fine. the light turns green and i start to make the turn and smoke starts pouring out from behind me. next thing i know i cant see where im driving. i get to the side of the road. run to the passenger side and flip my seats up and there are flames in my amplifier! wtf. so i get the top of the amp off and get the fire extinguished. heres what im stuck with, the subs are fine. no harm done to them. checked vc's with a dmm, still good at 2.0 ohms. very happy. i got a blown amp that still powers up, no mosfets are blown. its just barreling smoke now.
**** man, i just bought another project vehicle and putting all my $$$ towards that, i cant buy another ****in amp. i have 4 of these amps, i was supposed to have 1 to each sub. now 2 are blown (one to user error, one to today, idk what error it is yet). im thinkin of selling the other 2 and buying a damn memphis 4kw or something. i cant stand this shit no more. ****!
heres some pics:
this is what it should look like (taken from other amp in car)
this is what it is:
rest of amp:
idk if i should just sell them for parts, or send them to Zed to get repaired. these are original 1999 model xtants. not the remakes from Dealercostcaraudio.com. damn things 11 yrs old. ****. ****. ****. ****. this is the last thing i needed on my damn plate. ****!
so what you guys think? send the 2 blown ones i have in for repairs and run 1 to each sub or just sell them for parts and buy a memphis mojo 4kw, or stetsom or SD. just wanna run one amp now. **** this multiple amp shit.
thinking 1 4kw for daily would be nice. maybe a stetsom 5k2. idk. what you guys think?
