Could I have 'Blown' both of my Hypex Amps ? Or ???? (BD-Design)

Hi Kevin,

Sorry to hear about your problems with the Hypex Plate amps ...

The same happend more often caused by the DSP module which breaks down after some time. Some take a long time but some even within half a year. Sometimes the amp boards will be damaged too when the DSP board fails.

I bought their last DSP modules to help out my customers but I have used the last ones available, all gone.

I have no experience with their new plate amp series and DSP-boards but I have switched to MiniDSP (MiniDSP PWR ICE125 or 250) which proved to be more reliable with much more user friendly software and hardware while tuning.

I am still using their MiniDSP 2x4 (the old version!) for my subs and still working flawlessly.

The MiniDSP ICE amps have one problem though, they make noise and a lot when you have a high efficient system but this can be "repaired" relative easy by separating the signal and power leads which are standard binded together.
