WTF i don't know what happened to my amp. i got a 500.4 phoenix gold and i had the car on for about 5 min. all of a sudden i smelt burnig rubber so i turn off the radio and go to the trunk and smoke comes out.

i plugged the amp back in and the fan turns on, the lights inside the amp goes on but the blue LEDs don't turn ona nd teh fan stays on. i don't know what to do.

Sound like there was a short. Did the fuse blow? Make sure all your connection is tight and not touching metal. If you just got it I would take it back if its under warrenty. They might say its your fault for bad install if it shorted because of bad install.

Good Luck
