Blade Grenade "The Pin" anyone know how to bypass it?

I've got two G5 grenades and I'd like to bypass that microprocessor. Does anyone have a fix for this?

I'd also like to know continuous power output estimations and impedance stability points for these amps.

If I remember correctly, it just a resistor. If you still have the pin, just measure it and add a resistor inline.

Thanks for the replies guys. I've only got the pin for one of these amps.

Blade really screwed the pooch on these amps. Sounds like they're hardly worth the trouble.

You must have had the wrong person do it for you. If you have the correct value, it will work just fine.

The amp itself working is another issue.

The resistor mod worked fine the amps just kept on dying due to a bad design.

Is there a way to reverse engineer the resistor value if you don't have the pin?
