I put the new wire harness in and everything was cool (green light came on and tube was bumpin').
And then after 10 seconds or so, the power went out. I checked all my connections and everything seemed okay (again, it worked fine before except that the old wire harness' ground wire would keep coming lose from the harness).
I then kind of tapped on the tube itself and the power would come back on (green light), but within 10 seconds it would go back off. I would tap again, come back on and so on.
I'm wondering if maybe the amp has finally died (possibly from the previous wire harness ground always coming loose?)? Or is there something else I can check? I saw on the bazooka store that a new amp is $90+ dollars :0 So, if that is what is the problem, I'm not sure if it would be worth replacing just the amp.
If anyone has any ideas/clues on what I should check again, please let me know! Thanks!
Hey david, Welcome to the Bazooka Forum. Sorry to hear about your audio problems. My initial thought on this matter would be to examine the harness. If you still have the old one, I would check to make sure that they are identical, as sometimes mistakes can happen. Secondly, how do you have the EL hooked up, low level or high level? When you say you fixed the old harness, how did you do that? And do you still have the old harness?
