Hi Everyone, After reading this forum for as long as i can remember. Looking at the helpful comments of other members, it seems i could do with a little help myself. The story so far - I've been having check SP wire errors and the amp shutting off when i play music at around -30 to -25. I started testing different things, unplugging all but the front speakers etc. On the final test the amp shut off but when i turned it back on i heard what sounded like a spark and a pop (quite loud) and now when i reset the amp with the tone control, info, and main zone button the amp comes on for two secs then shuts off. I've resorted to the fact that its blown and probably needs a repair. In the front L/R rear L/R and centre i have 5 B&W vm1's and 4 B&W CCM684 speakers in the ceiling via the 4 presence outputs. Now this is where it gets complicated (for me). I have left and right subwoofers. The left is a B&W AS2 and the right is a Rel T9. Both the subs are connected via phono to the amp for movies. The Rel speakon connector is connected to the front left and right channels. The b&w AS1 also has speaker outputs which are also plugged into the front left and right channels, these are all connected via piggybacked banana plugs. My questions is:- Have i overloaded the front channels or is the way i have them connected the correct way? My vm1 speakers are set to small and crossover at 100hz. Thanks in advance to anyone who may be able help with my problem.
