Under normal circumstances the protection circuits of the amp should keep things good to go. However if the signal was distorted before the amp the amp would amplify it to the speakers.

To meter the amp you would need an Oscilliscope to look at the output and to service the amp I would recommend getting the Service Manual from our parts department.

Since you bought the amp used you should probably have it looked at by a service center anyways.
