Are you using the right fuse? If so, the amp could easily be fried. Thats what my friends guitar amp did when it fried.

could potentially be a blown fuse in your trucks interior fuse box. I had a loose ground connection from mine and i hit a bit bump one time while driving and kept blowing the fuse when the connection would break. maybe worth checking those if u havent already

What if you wire a dual 2 ohms in series producing a 4 ohm load and bridged it? then each channel would now see a 2 ohm load, right? does a total of 4 ohm load in bridged mode also burn my amp?


i have this amp i bridged it to 2 ohms and its been about 3 months its stable havent blown any fuses and its a big difference in sound to. 2 ohms with this amp is definately the way to go. i used to pioneer 12's.

good day, check your spkr impedance, if 4oms use a posive spkr dividing network. if stills blows up replace a higher amperage of your fuse. ex.4A raise it up to 5A. the your amps consume higier current if more spkr wattage.

Does it blow the fuse if you disconnect the RCA cables and disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp?

Does it only blow the fuse after the head unit is switched on (only after remote voltage is applied to the amp)?

you either have a bad ground or your power line is too small, the farther you go from the battery the larger wire you need.

Check and see if its dirty inside, dust and smoke are known to cause problems via shorting or not making contact... sometimes your fuses are a bit over the wall so it would be best to replace them... and check if you have a fuse between your battery and the power cable to avoid over powering the amp

If it keeps blowing fuses then #1 its internally damaged or "blown" .. Or #2 i would make sure you have the battery power hooked up to the + terminal and the ground wire running from the car body to the - terminal.. so if its hooked up correctly and keeps blowing fuses then it requires repair.. I wish i had better news but thats all it can be...
