If one applies upwards of 200V DC or AC on a 50V ceramic cap, one will find only the leads on the PCB and minute pieces scattered on the PCB, but no smoke.
Sirji the 12 vdc equipment is not working at that level there is a dc-dc converter which increases the voltage to make the 300 watts rms. Approx 34 volts

I think if the pre amp is the culprit there must the grounding issue with the amp. It might have cause when the speaker wire touches the ground causing the ground to get damage. Which in case you IC in the pre amp.

Yes you can run the amp without the PRE-Amp section but all the filters and gains setting will be lost.

Hey, try MICHEAL - 9884548351. He works out of his shop in Adyar opposite Malar hospital. You'l have to take the lane which leads to Shankara School. Give him a call before you drop in. I was referred to him by a guy in Burma Bazzar who deals with car audio.

Yes there is a product called JBL 75.4 II but I don't think it ever retailed in India. If I;m not wrong that was only for the American and European market.

You're very much right, the products are identical in specs, appearance etc.. only difference is that the company adds II after the model # for North American market.

Woheech, sir! The 34V is for the output section to keep current low. But even then, at the locations the low-voltage caps are placed one doesn't expect spikes to exceed 2x the normal voltage. Destructive failure needs 4x at least (OK, there is a curve for it, and it is the pulse energy that counts).

Guys,

The amp is ready and its working fine now. The total damage is Rs. 750. He has replaced the PreAmp board from a damaged unit(we have sourced it from a import party). Thanks guys, specially Sam for your help and support.

No reply from Sam, So I am here to confirm that its True and my Amp is 75.4II which has sensitivity control from 73mV to 6V.

Glad that everything is sorted out. Panky there are no noticeable differences between 75.4 and 75.4II, just some standard ongoing changes in batch numbers.
