One of the most important components of any amplifier is the power supply
Im really interested to see how long that power supply lasts and how the amplifier holds up too
The only thing I'm really worried about is the subwoofer. The entire car audio system ($12,000 in total) was destroyed in a car accident in 2005. The only thing that is remaining is this one subwoofer (other two were destroyed in the impact), and this one amplifier. And this amplifier is already half-destroyed as is. Its got MAJOR physical damage, and some of the connections have been broken off on the inside (the solder joints). It no longer has an adjustable crossover, RCA inputs, and I had to jerry-rig the screw type connectors with new screws because the old ones were snapped off.
So this really is just a complete test. I don't really care too much about the PSU (found it in my junk drawer). And I also don't care all that much about the amplifier since I now have an Alpine V-Power 600w Mono-block to push this thing in my car once I get my charging system up to snuff (and since this particular amp is so destroyed already).
So...if it goes, it goes. I will of course miss it, but I also already have a 100w plate amp that I COULD use....but where's the fun at in that?
