G'day guys, im a real novice with car audio so just bair with me here.
My bass was non existent the other day so i checked my amp (the fuse) and sure enough it was gone. Upon trying to replace it, the thing sparks and smokes on contact.
Are these the symptoms of a f***** amp?

Cheers guys any help would be appreciated

The output transistors (mosfet) may very well be shorted. In otherwords its stuffed.
