    No sound coming from internal speaker....however, an external speaker works fine.....is there a speaker fuse inside for that internal speaker that may have blown????

    dunno. sounds like an easy fix though, the fact that an external speaker works means the amp itself is a-ok. could be a disconnected wire, hopefully not a blown speaker. (although most blown speakers still make some noise)
    does the tweeter still work? if not it's almost assuredly a wiring problem and not a blown 15

    Have you got a multimeter handy? Check for resistance on the speaker. Should be about 8 ohms. If you got that, reconnect leads and check for voltage on the speaker terminals while playing something. Should have some AC volts. If multimeter is not available, can you swap that extension speaker in for the oem unit?

    I believe speaker isn't blown, seems to be some sound coming from tweeter.......no multimeter to use, can't swap out speakers...will try looking at wiring, thanks!
