Left coast Amp repair?

Recommended Posts

As Im sure many of you have done, I purchased an Amp off Ebay and once it was installed found the seller wasn't truthful about the item. Unfortunately its a large amp so basically my install was built around the amp and by the time I found out it was past the timeline to be able to do anything about it through Ebay.

The amp is an Ampere Audio 9.0 and im hoping to find somewhere somewhat local (Central Ca.) to get it fixed. All of the Output transistors are fried on it. I am hoping to find a company that repairs amps but if  there is an individual that does it with enough reputation that is fine too. I'm really trying to avoid "My best friends sister, cousin, boyfriend knows a guy who actually took a semester of basic electronics at night at the junior college, and he said he can handle it no problem"

Any info is appreciated.

You can try these guys: http://www.desertaudiospecialists.com/about  They are in Phoenix so you would have to ship.

I got a quote from them to repair my punch 240 for $90. I havent done it yet but I have heard good things about them.

Wouldnt hurt to send them an email.

I’ve emailed them and am about ready to ship 3 old school amps to them, just curious if you have already or have heard any feedback since posting? I’m in Socal and have 3 Lanzars one of which is a 50c. Really hope they can do me right and give me back the reliable (so I think) amps that they used to be.

In case anyone was wondering, I was able to get in touch with Mr Steve Mantz of Zed Audio in New Berry Park, CA and he does repairs on amps. He has a web page at zedaudiocorp.com  ,  I personally am super stoked to have him repair my goods as he is a legend in the audio field. Hope this helps out.

Oh wow. Thanks for sharing, I mean its Steve Mantz, I'd probably let him touch more than just my amplifier haha. I was  a little skeptical, kinda seems like that would be beneath him for some reason. pretty excited, and he's in CA. perfect. I'll let you know how it goes. 

 

Thanks again
