    If you suspect that there is a chance of water damage then I would take a look inside the amplifier myself. This would save you the cost of shipping and a diagnostic fee on something so obvious to...

    I hate to see an amplifier replaced without knowing exactly what is wrong. Sometimes it is a $10 transistor and a flat rate of $125 total to fix. Other times it's not worth repairing.

    At this point take the same process-of-elimination approach with the 700 amp as you did with the 250 amp.
    I'm not sure, but because the 700 is a hybrid with a Class D mono-channel and a Class AB...

    Disconnect all speakers wires and speakers plus both RCAs. Use a temporary speaker and wire substitute of proven origin on one channel only.

    Any chance of water damage?
    Consult your amplifier owners manuals.

    So if the HU is powering up, lit up, and responding to commands per the display read-out, then it would appear at first glance that the HU is fully functional.

    So Phil, if I wire two AC light bulbs with one in reverse polarity will I have total darkness if I am standing an equal distance from both light bulbs?

    You can do it 'all' for $1000 but IMO the results would be disappointing and there is a good chance much of that gear would end up in the classifieds next season. You could easily spend $1000, or...

    No. It is not at all common for that amplifier to have an issue. While a failed amplifier is possible, usually when an amplifier is fried it goes into protect mode. So back to the diagnostic steps to...

    You have to begin the process of isolating exactly where in the signal path the problem is originating from.
    So begin by reversing the EQ in-boat and tower zones via the RCAs.

    Marine motors, versus automotive engines, typically have a lot thicker paint on them to combat corrosion. Kind of odd since automotive engines seem to be more exposed than an inboard. But I guess...

    It's not a marine subwoofer and I wouldn't run it in a ported box in a coastal situation. Beyond that, the exterior materials used (poly, butyl) are extremely rugged and fine for a long-term...

    Another part of this, and maybe not a major issue, is that the subwoofer cannot project out of the boat and at surf range. The fullness that low bass adds does contribute to your sense of volume.

    blackcup,
    I'm confident you already have plenty of power and plenty of speaker for surfing. Yes, you can add more speakers but that would also mean adding a second amplifier.
