So last night I turned on my system to watch a blu-ray movie and realize my XPA-2 GEN 2 shows no signs of life. I try everything but nothing seems to work. I have an XPA-3 Gen 1 and that one is working fine. I have everything connected to my APC.

I'm going to second "garbulky"'s blown fuse. If I remember correctly, there are two set of fuses in the XPA-2. You should call Emotiva tech support and they will be able to walk you through checking these. If it is the fuses they can also send you the correct replacements.

While the fuses used are 'glass' type, you MIGHT be able to find a replacement at the AUTO PARTS STORE. I'd try NAPA first, but that's just me.
UNPLUG the unit Well Before cracking the case. It might ALSO pay to purchase an inexpensive (I'd target 25$) DVM / DMM in order to check the fuses on the OHMS scale. Some very small value fuses (like 1 amp) are very difficult to see with the unaided eye. And they wire might break in the cap end, where it's Not visible, anyway.
Be careful. Fuses should be removed before checking 'em…...
