I don't understand why CROWN Technical support don't help?

Send this amplifier to the trash?

I got an update

I noticed that the same channel when loaded, feeding sine wave, I noticed that the THERM protection LED turns on quick, even the heat sink is not so hot, I even have the fans running on top of the heat sink for testing purposes.

I conducted a test on the working channel, forcing it to over heat, no fans used, THEN!!!! the working channel started to show the same effect!!! as of the faulty channel!!!

Image from the WORKING channel when loaded and forced to over heat

in the image above, the voltage was 65V, when the channel over heated, voltage dropped to 35V, and the wave started to get bad.

Now I think that we know the problem is in the thermal control section?

Please advice

I am not getting a better result by removing those resistors, except that the wave forms looks better, only clippling, no strange wave as before

Also, I am unable to get more than 35V at the amplifier output, See image for best wave clipping

Another image when channel starts clipping

Image at TP111 , looks strange

Image at TP211 looks good

This amplifier is driving me crazy, it gives 80V without load

Hope I get some more help

WIill try this on saturday.

But compare what exactlly? and why Ch2? its already working!

Yes, without load I am getting around 80V, same as the good channel.

No load

I checked all of the 0.68R resistors, All are good.

I am getting LOWER output voltage when i connect the load around 40V, see how the wave looks like with load


The working channle gives around 67V at the same load clean sine

Hope i can solve it
