I recently had an aftermarket amp short out on me and don’t have the $300 - $400 to replace it.
I opened some panels and found the original amp as well as what I believe to be some kind of adapters for it.
I thought it would be a simple unplugging the new amp and plugging the inputs into that into the original and the outputs into the output of original but I now see that there are already in and ouputs into the original, in fact the original was outputting to the new amp.
Is this common? And for someone who has never messed with car audio would it be complicated to restore now that I have found the original amp?
Thanks for any help (I do have pics if necessary)
