Subwoofer amp smoked

While driving yesterday, I noticed the distinct smell of burning electronics
in my 96 EB V8 AWD - turning everything off didn't seem to make any
difference. After further investigation last night, I now have no sub (JBL
system) Is there an amp for that back with the sub? Should I just take it to
a stereo shop and have a new amp and sub installed or look for a junkyard
unit?

Don't assume there will be anything "just" about getting a new amp and sub
installed. If it's the same JBL system that was in the 95 Limited, it's
some sort of modular proprietary thing; whenever I've asked about it at car
stereo places they've always said that replacing it was all or nothing, no
way to replace individual components. I don't know if you've got the same
system or if they're feeding me hogwash, but there it is.

i don't know if this is still true, but factory systems were rated at
different impedance than aftermarket systems. they did this to keep the
engine noise out of the sound system...so i was told.
