    DIY--> Guide to troubleshoot/repair/upgrade your auto amplifier

    I am working on a guide to assist the DIYer's on automotive amplifier troubleshoot/repair/upgrading. Until I get too involved I would like to know how many out there would like this?


    I am not to good at explaining in writing. so most of this will be on video tutorials along with pictures.
    I will cover these subjects within the week, if someone else also has electronic's knowledge then please contribute


    *soldering/desoldering techniques and the difference in cold/hot solder joints
    *how to determine where to look first on the circuit board when problem occurs
    *how to upgrade most amplifiers from all manufacturers. (this will be last in my priority)
    *testing stubborn problems with a digital ohms meter, how to test without them
    *overheating issues
    *reading semiconductor part numbers
    *NPN,PNP transistors and how to upgrade them
    *trace repair, transistor, bridge rectifier,mofet removal replacement.
    Did it.. Done it... now I got to keep the neighbors kids away!!
