I recently got a new subwoofer and was planning to use the amp from the old one to power a buttkicker. The old one is a GW find, definitely from an older HTIB. I got the amp out but was surprised to see that the (6in?) woofer is 28ohm. Any idea about the power output? There aren't any clear indicators printed on the amp and google wasn't much help. Will the amp be able to power a 4ohm buttkicker (mini lfe)?
Well, curiosity got the best of me. I just clipped the terminals of the amp and wire nutted them to the buttkicker. Got a short, low rumble and then nothing. Now the led goes on but no sound. Think it blew (?) I checked the fuse on the amp and it is still good so is there a chance it is still recoverable?
Ps, the buttkicker still works, wired it up to another amp.

More likely, the "2" is part of the preceding model/serial number, and the speaker you are looking at is 8ohms. And yes, it is entirely possible you blew an amp designed for 8ohms by giving it a 4ohm load.
