First off, thanks for the great site and info you guys share. I am very much a novice to the CB world. I am a diesel mechanic and traded some work for an older DX500 amp that he said had a smoke smell from it last time he used it. I pulled off the cover and the 10uf chokes are burned. I know he has a tuned up Connex radio and the power leads had spade connections on them. I am thinking he was over driving it and had a poor power feed dropping voltage. Those crimp on spades don’t carry current well. Anyway, I was going to replace the chokes and the 25 ohm 5 watt resistors. Is there anything else to check? Visually nothing else is discolored but I know that’s not an accurate way to tell if there is more damage. I do not know what I am going to do with this once completed. I do have a Bearcat 980 in my Jeep but I don’t have a need for something this big. I would like to get it working properly and stash away for a possible future project. Thanks for any help.
