Mrp-m1000 internal component running temps?
hey everyone, i have a few questions about my mrp-m1000, probably gonna be more directed to someone who knows about the MRP-Mxxx series. but here we go lol
i bought an mrp-m1000, used off kijiji , didnt bother testing it b4 i bought it, sure enough when i got home, hooked it up, light came on, but of course my luck, no output at all,
so i opened it up, took off the clamps on the outputs and b4 i even started testing anything i noticed two of the 8 outputs had different markings on them, all 8 are irf3415's, so i assumed they were manufactured at a different time then the rest so right away i figured they were gone and sure enough i pulled them and they were fried. so i put it back together with the two blown transistors out, fired it up with a bench psu, and it worked, so i ordered new ones and replaced them, ( don't worried i replaced all 8 and they are all identical now so the same crap dont happen again)
anyways so it is all working again, but i noticed that some of the parts inside run Pretty hot even just at a decent listening volume, i read on another forum that the output coils and a d600 transistor run extremely hot and thats why hes wasn't surprised that hes has seen alot of problems with these amps.so when i put the amp back together i put some thermal compound on the d600 because there was none from the factory and that helped some.
but what im trying to get at is, should the output coils be getting warm even when im not putting any signal threw it?
Sorry for the Long ramble i just figured i might as well stick the whole story in there LOL, i just figured i shoudl ask b4 i go put it in the car then find out there may be something wrong with it and have to pull it again lol,
thank u in advanced to anyone with any info on this :)
