Default I hope there isn't a dumb question...

Where is a diagram on how to hook a dummy load up. i have rkcstr's in specific. i have a rkcstr microdrive I hooked the - on the test load to Gnd on the driver and hookde the posative to LD on the driver.

The picture is big and blurry, but it should show how it is hooked up at least.

The pads on the "back" of the driver are NOT connected through the board to the pads on the front of the driver. You need to hook the dummy load to the pads on the "front" of the driver (the side with the pot on it).

If the front pads got ripped off somehow, I don't know if the driver can be salvaged or not. *Maybe Ryan will pop in with alternate placement for output connections.

You could PM him and ask if it can be saved.
