Amplifier stopped working!!!!

This question is not answered

PLEASE HELP!!!

I am running a pioneer GM-D8061 amplifier and for some reason it stopped putting out to my sub. I had my setup running great for about a month and then it took a crap on me. At first i thought it was the amp so i used my warranty and got a new one. After I got the new one I put it in and still nothing. I used an RCA to 3.5 mm cord to test it and still nothing. Also I met up with my friend who also has a sub set up and i tested my sub with his amp so i know my sub works. Now I think the issue is with the power supply. When my car is turned off and the amp is off the power cable reads 12v. But then when i turn on the amp it drops to around 8v. But even with this happening The blue light still comes on. So is the voltage drop causing my problem?? If that's not it what else could it possibly be???

  • Yes, the amp will shut down when under voltage.
