Amp blows fuses "immediately"... HELP

I have had this amp installed for about 8 months working without a problem. Now all of a sudden it is blowing fuses as soon as I hook the power, Ground, and switch wire up Conneting no speakers.. it blows the inline 30a fuse. I have no clue what the problem could be, as I have never experienced this... I am taking it to a audio store today to have them test the amp. HELP..

    I took the amp out and put it in another car and it blew the fuse there also. I am sending it back as the 1yr warranty is up next month. I do hear something rattling around inside.

    this is a followup .. I sent the amp to power acoustik at a cost of $28... been 3 weeks and supposed to return any day now.. i did take it apart and noticed there was a screw rolling around inside (NOt GOOD)it was from some part in there. i could not screw it back in place because it goes under the board.. I think the scre touched some parts it was not supposed too.. I cant wait to get it back.. driving is torture without the bump in the back of my saabhttp://www.cardomain.com/ride/2289746

For this to cause a problem with amplifiers there is something internally wrong with it. Most of the time the mosfets take a shit from the hot...cold....hot....cold atmosphere its put in by all of us audio people. If it still has warrenty that would be the easiest route to go. Send it in to them and have them fix it for FREE lol!! well sorta. Hope this helps you understand why you are blowing fuses.

My Solara Dsc radio, which has worked well for several years, suddenly began blowingthe 2 amp fuse on the red power line whenever the transmit button was pushed on the mic. Why?


No worries here.
According to Uniden, the 6 amp fast blow fuse is the correct one.
Not entirely sure why there'd be a 2 amp with your old radio, but I suspect the radio is good.

your inline fuse wouldn't blow if there was just something wrong with the amp. the amp fuse would blow if that was the case. something is faulty with your wiring. you probably have the wires touching somewhere or are in the wrong terminals at the amp or on the wrong battery terminal. or your power wire is grounding out somewhere. its not the amp. its your wiring

A slow blow fuse is also known as an anti-surge fuse the idea being any sudden "spikes" in you mains electric when you switch on would blow a quick blow fuse. Anti surge fuses are designed to tolerate any sudden initial electric pulse.

Fuse blows


Both 3 or 4 amp slow blow fuses are suitable replacements for the 3.125 amp subwoofer fuse.

It could be that the subwoofer is blowing the fuse because the one you installed was not slow blow.

But, more likely is the subwoofer has a short in the power supply which is causing the fuse to blow.

#8 fuse blows as soon as replaced


What ever the fuse is going to has a "direct short" in it. Either somewhere on the wire between the fuse and the appliance it is hooked to there is a bare spot (a place where the wire insulation has worn off) and it is making direct contact with a ground (car body) or the appliance the fuse is hooked up to has been damaged, and has shorted out, and needs to be replaced.

Solution: trace the wire from the fuse to the appliance looking for bare wire, if you find that cover it with electrical tape and problem solved. If not then unhook the appliance and replace the fuse. If the fuse does not blow then the appliance is bad and replace the appliance.

Are you sure you don't have the positive and negative power wires reversed?

Does the fuse blow without remote voltage applied?

If the fuse only blows after the remote voltage is applied, the output transistors are likely shorted. To eliminate the speakers as a possible fault, disconnect the speaker wires from the amp. Also disconnect the signal cables.

 

If the fuse blows without remote voltage applied, either the power supply transistors are blown or the B+ and ground are reversed (or they may have previously been reversed).
