could it just be a blown fuse? how much power(Watts) do you have in your amp and in your speakers? all i know is if the amp has more power than the speakers, then there's a possibility that it will blow your speakers out..i've never heard of a blown amp before..correct me if im wrong here

yea, i've also never heard of a amp blowing out unless you push it really hard and its a shit legacy or something amp that has like 20 watts...but yea maybe its just a fuse or faulty connection?

trust me the amp is cookd not completely but my rear and front left channels are shot rights still work but not lefts anyway i've workd in car installs for 4 yrs and it isn't the fuse anyways the reason it blew is cause i let a friend borrow it while my car was in the shop for 3 months
and hes a jack ass (now i know this) and when he hookd it up or un hookd it not sure the full story he had the system still on and he touched + and - with something and sparks flew atleast that was his story
