So my friends and I were setting up to jam today and realized we lacked a bass rig for our bassist. We decided to try the bass through a Carvin 2x12 something guitar amp just so we could get enough to play to (it didn't take much...it shakes the house at 2). However after a while, we started to smell something like burning wood so we immediately turned off the amp. When we tried to turn it back on, we got nothing at all.

Now i know i was a stupid idea so we can skip the ridicule...but i could really use some help figuring out just what is wrong with this amp. Answers?

You'd think you'd blow the speakers before you damage the amp itself. Could be tubes, could be transformers.

Don't know, but the first thing I'd check, as a total electronic "durr", is that all the soldered connections are still soldered.
