    get a new amp? with the limited amount of info, it is hard to tell.

    how is it connected, what is the beginning load of the speakers, what is the load the amp sees, what power wires are connected, how are they connected, and where is the car computer, are just some of the questions that i have

    1) Try using punctuation when you type... makes it a a lot easier to read.

    2) Check the polarity of your power wires.

    3) Are you using the same sub as your brother? Check the ohm load that your subs are creating - could be out of range for the amp.

    4) What do you mean by "the rca's bridged"

    5) Also I see you are a new member - There is a lot of knowledge on these forums, but also just keep in mind that these forums are centered around CarPCs.

    what is the model number for the amp?

    what is the model number for the sub?

    we are willing to help just need as much info as possible

    it almost sounds like you have the sub connected wrong, or the sub is blown, but without more info on the setup and resistance in the setup, it is hard to tell..

    i think we scared him away... to bad, it looked like he could have used a carputer to complicate the install...
