    Well, the fact that the first amp with the second amps driver board having a runaway bias (again) indicates to me that there could be a problem with both the amp and the driver board, but I don't know, because the second amp isn't working at all...

    Besides that, I'm in too much of a bad mood to even attempt any diagnostic repairs.

    Hi Nick,

    Either the web address is wrong for the photos that you posted OR your Photobucket account is set for private. If I go to the web address that you listed for the photo you tried to post >   I get an error message. Check the Photobucket web address for that photo and make sure that your Photobucket account is not set for "private".

    If you can get a few photos up here for your amps, it is possible that one of us may be able to find an issue in your wiring that could cause the problem.

    Either send Kevin @ pictures or you can send them to me at, Kevin or I will post them here so we can try to figure what is wrong with your amp.
