Scary thread about Buttkicker Amps
 

I dont know how many of you look through the Subwoofer threads at AVS, but I stumbled on a pretty scary one about Buttkicker amps. And since I know there are some people around here that use them or thinking about using one, you might want to read this. I just dont want anyone burning there house down. Now I know that there not all bad (The official word from Guitammer is that there is a recall for serial numbers from A0005570 to A0005815), but this pic speaks for itself....

Read the thread. It actually had flames comming out the top and smoke was filling his house so he grabed it up and ran out side with it.

As they teach in school, "Electronics are made of smoke, for electronics to work you must keep the smoke inside, once you let it out they stop working."

Well... That does not necessarily mean that BKA-1000 is not a good amp, but it may rather mean that any manufacturer/users is affected to a some degree by the QC Bell Curve (known for engineers).

Wow... That is amazing...

Seems they have some seriously faulty components in those recalled models...

I just guessin but it seems that with that much power goin through it it gets hot, really hot. and some component that was supposed to be rated to withstand it, turned out it couldent take it.

and thus you have a BK flame kissed.
