    Default DSWPRO 500 AMP stopped working. Replacement AMP Question

    I have my DSWPRO500 for 4 years (right past the 3 year AMP warranty) and 2 days ago stopped working. The light on the back of the AMP does not work. I looked at the fuse and it is not blown. After a lengthy discussion with POLK customer service, they surmised that my AMP needs to be replaced. The OE AMP costs ($250) and in my mind, way to expensive for what you get. My questions:

    1. Can I use another rear AMP (DAYTON Audio SPA250 WATT from Part's Express for $100) in place of the POLK replacement?
    2. If not, can someone send me the POLK AMP specifications, so I can find a AMP this would work in this setup?

    Thanks......BTW, I am looking to replace it with a SVS PB13 Ultra..... A little step up....in the near future, but not yet.

    Call polk and have them send you a 550 amp, it bolts right up.

    How much was the 550 AMP? Same Price as the 500 ($250)?

    This is very disturbing, I'm considering purchasing a 550 or a 660, how long should I expect the amp inside to last? They have shorter lives than receivers especially something like a Yamaha?
