(1) blown channel blew quickly so no further damage, repaired using same part numbers (2 output transistors and one dual emitter resistor)
Had intermittent, it would just turn off then back on, repaired, problem was from an edge mounted board that needed re-soldering, then let amp run for a minimum of 5 hours, and has equal heating for both channels, nothing gets real hot (bias ok)
Banged around on the bench while playing to check for any other intermittent.
New and better soldering, re-soldered many of the factory solder joints that I always re-solder for certain parts (any equipment) and improved the PC board ground, among other things to make it better than the stock factory work.
One divider on the terminal is broken and may allow wires to touch.I strongly recommend using spade type crimp connectors and not raw wires on the terminals so there will be no mistake !, I will show a picture of that, and is no big deal at all.I do not like the way the terminal strip is and almost need to use some type of connectors for the ends of your wires.LOOKING at the terminal close to the fuse side you will see the broken plastic fin divides, so be careful hooking it up !
This amp has a very clean-quiet sound for some reason, and not artificially too punchy sounding, and is quite remarkable for a Majestic brand amp.(I can't believe I am complimenting a Majestic) but it just sounds really good.I ran it into two speakers in two channel stereo mode, it's just so clear and sounds better than many other more expensive amps.Also the gain controls need be set lower than other amps, the gain is higher than I say it should sound, to be "normal".
I say it is about 50watts RMS into 8 ohms each channel running in 4 channel mode.Also it does not include the high level input connector, using the RCA inputs is the best sound for any amp.
(don't believe any factory car audio amp rating specs you read these days they call this 400 watts)
But I would use this amp for 4 (6x9) coaxial (or triax) speakers and will sound very clear and still have enough power left over and last a long time.This amp is not for competition cranking but very good for a nice but simple 4 speaker (or two) installation.
It does pain me to not offer a warranty or not accept any return or refund on this.I would not post this and otherwise just have used it for parts.The original problem is solved and should now work much longer than if you bought it when it was new.If you want me to hook it up to a scope and show you it works, or even a video, but it indeed meets my standards.
Cosmetics: some scratches and marks, the mark on top in the center is scraped metal.I tried to preserve the color, it is not dense gold color, but is not silver either.
As much as I don't believe factory specifications for car amps, these are what I found on-line for this model.
