Time to replace old JL e6450 amp?

I still have the original e6450 amp in my 2006. A couple of weeks ago I noticed the right bow speaker wasn't working. I swapped the speakers and still no sound from the right bow. It actually emits some sound, but it is about 1/10 the level of the others. Does this sound like my e6450 lost a channel?

This happened one time only, but the left rear cabin speaker wasn't playing when I first turned on the stereo. Then after about 30 seconds it started playing at a normal level.

Probably about time to replace it, my friend. I've been told that the E6450 is the only bad amp JL has produced. Coming from experience I agree. Replaced my original E6450 last year due to it shutting off when the bass would hit hard.

Not an uncommon failure in that amp's life stage.

I had a similar experience with my e6450 a few years ago. 3 channels went out, one channel went to bow speaker and the other 2 went to sub. I had to replace it.

12 years out of an amp is probably not too bad.
