Is it just me or does the wiring on this sunfire 2x300 look really terrible, both in general quality/construction and the soldering? As far as I know, it has never been serviced. It started smoking a couple months ago when some el caps on one channel blew.
The center is a star ground: what looks like an 18awg solid wire soldered to tabs at main caps negative terminals, along with a transformer tap, a wire to pcb, and negative speaker terminals, with another 20awg wire going from it to another solder tab at chassis ground. The solder looks very dry and the connections dodgy at best.
I was given this amp a long time ago…just sort of amazingly diy construction quality
