I'm having the same issue other Epik Legend owners have had - fuses blowing constantly. I've attempted to contact Epik but have had no luck yet. I will keep trying but in the meantime does anyone know how to fix the issue. I don't want to have to purchase an entire new Sub so am wondering if I can keep the cabinet/speakers themselves and just replace the electronics (amp/driver?). Anyone? Thanks.

Post that question over there and I'm sure you will get a answer, or a amp that will work.

Do you have a DMM(multi meter?). If so, check each driver at the binding post before anything else. If one of the drivers has an issue, (which caused your amp to fail) it may cause the next amp to fail immediately too. If you don't have a DMM you can find cheap ones for like 15 bucks at sears, walmart, etc. Use the resistance mode on the DMM and make sure both drivers are showing about the same.

Hi Tom.. I posted your reply for you over in the epik Thread in case usbud does not return. I see he did go over there. Good advice as always.
