    you do realize it smoked , and if you do not know anything about electronic components or testing them or identifying them, then you will not be able to fix it , nor will i or any one else be able to help you fix this

    can you perform these tasks?

It depends if you have blown the amp first check all fuses then make sure your power is disconnected and the earth is very good, tight ect. the reconnect everything and if it still doesnt work try a replacement amp and cables

I have a memphis mcd 1000. It started smoking and blew both fuses. I replaced the fuses now when I hook power to the amp sparks real bad like the power and ground are touching


I hate to tell you this, but you have something major. Shorted. Check your wires and conections with a meter. The bad news. Is your amp may be a goner.

The thermal and power lights are on soon as i hook the amp up to the power


check your connections, this usually indicates that you have a short circuit but also make sure that your earth strap is securely fastened to a clean metal fixing.this could well be the cause of your problem.

At a guess, I'd say that you have got the new battery in back to front. This means that you are hooking the earth wires to the Positive side of the battery.

Well, sounds like you have an internal damage since it smokes, if it smokes as soon as it kicks on, and blowing the fuse right away, I would have it fixed. But my guess would be something with the ground that is making this happen, or some how your power is grounding on the amp. When ever smoke comes into play, thats never good any way at this point you gotta admitt that thiers internal damage.. blowing fuses can also be cause by over working your amp. along with the sub load at 1 ohm make sure your amp can do the same.. hope this was helpful in some way

Smoking


Gee I would think that it is kind of obvious; your amp is blown. Just because it doesn't blow fuses doesn't mean much. If you hook the power up to the ground input and the ground to the power and then turn it on you pretty much toasted the amplifier. If you don't know why the amp is smoking, but you're trying to fix it yourself, you are basically telling me that you have no business doing so. I have been an installer for 15 years and even I am not dumb enough to try to fix a bad amplifier. Do everyone a REALLY big favor; stop messing around with something that you don't understand of have knowledge about before you hurt yourself.

Amp not working


What's the problem? It's not unusual to get a spark when you connect power to an amplifier; there are capacitors in the amp that will charge. Is the amplifier not working?
