just curious, but why is there a jumper cable from the remote to the ground??

RF charges flat rate pricing for amp repairs, its not pretty. But i'd check out ARC and see what they can do for you

AlphaDamp Sound Deadening CDL Mat - The best Vibration Damper Ever!

I'd hit that so fucking hard whoever pulled me out would be King of England.


Lol... looks like we were on the same page. Car-B-Ques suck.

ya, tires and paint burning make the marshmallows taste funny.

Um, RF may be a friend of the site and forum, but I do not think they actually have a technician on the forum who checks and does what you are looking for. I would try to contact RF directly instead of 3rd party.

Tell me...does this smell like chloroform to you?

The dried white stuff is probably thermal paste from the old owner taking the board completely out. (it gets messy) If the caps are bulged they are shot. Also it looks like two of those mosfets are crispy where the solder joint is.

Hopefully the old owner didn't attempt to fix it when he had the board out.


Good luck.

those solder joints all look pretty factory to me. rf flate rate is probably going to be expensive btw

theres no such thing as too expensive when it comes to upgrades like that, because imo if you are gonna spend to upgrade then do it correctly rather then be a cheap ass ricer

factory or not im saying they look liek they might be busted. if the top of the cap is flat then its probably still good but if it has a dome on it sorta then its probably broken. but it doesnt make a difference no one can really tell whats busted on an amp by looks. unless your board is burnt of the fets blew up where they burnt or broke apart theres little visual tells of broken parts. and even if there was thats never ever the "only" problem

make sure to tell whoever your getting estimates from that its an 05-07 T10001bd. alot of repair shops wont go near those amps with a 10ft pole because replacing fets is much harder then alot of amps out there.
