You probably need to run 4 gauge wire if not already done so, and check the fuses on the amp, add the fuses together then buy the right fuse rating for the fuse connected under the hood

    Then your set up is completely wrong and you need to disconnect all wires and when you put a better fuse to the battery compartment then rehook the wire to the battery and make sure that its not connected to the amp, after that THEN connect the wires to the amp leaving the power wire last and that should work then,

Ihave a keenwood kac 7252 amp that is running two mtx thunder 4500 12`s but amp fuse keeps blowing at higher volume why?


1.-check proper heat sink, or dissipation.
2.- check speaker impedance. Must match between amp and speakers.
3.-low power line on the house may cause low efficience work on the amp, overheat, and finally fuse protection.
4.- finally, check speaker wires. Thin cable overheat amp too.

THE AMP TURNS ON BUT THE FUSE UNDER THE HOOD KEEPS BLOWING and the sub wont turn on but the amp turns on


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty . Please use volt meter to test correct voltage and ohm feas ng on speakers. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. amp-turns-but-zb4bomd1rt4qms0dqd12kkt2-3-0.jpg

How can i hook up a second battery to my MTX 4105d amp


well the best way is keep the amp hooked up how it is now and on your amp there is a + and a - for a cap hook up the negative to the negative for the battery and the positive to a fuse like with a 60 amp fuse then the other end of the fuse link goes to the battery

I have a mtx thunder 7801 and a sledge hammer box


Sounds like the subs are blown with the voicecoils fused together which means the amp is/was seeing a dead short ( zero Ohms reisitence) not good for any amp. Disconnect the speaker terminals from the amp and see if it turns on. The funny smell might have been the subs blowing up, i'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

If you have proof of purchase(invoice or receipt) showing the purchase date and you are still within the warranty period then yes it would be repaired by MTX under the warranty guidlines, and by the way MTX is great at customer service and they are great to work with(very fair)!!!!
Keep in mind that the seal on the bottom of the amp cannot be broken or that will void warranty coverage.
Give them a call, you will be glad you did!

If there is a zero ohm connection across the B+ and ground terminals, it should blow the fuse as soon as you apply power.
