What fuses have constant power supply in a 2005 Chevy equinox? I'm trying to get power to a pioneer under seat subwoofer.

ALL subwoofers need a minimum 10 gauge wire power source.Run a 10 gauge wire to a relay then to the battery with a fuse or circuit breaker inline which matches the subs amp power needs.
Use a switched power source to the relay from any accessory fuse.
If you try and feed power to a sub from existing wiring a voltage drop may result and the sub amp will not only sound bad but have a short life.
Capacitors are added to bigger systems just for this reason as sub amps can be VERY power hungry.

JBL subwoofer not giving sounds even it is correctly connected

If this is a powered sub, than it will have it's own power supply and small mono amp, both of which can fail. Could be a fuse, but if the fuse blows again you will have a short on the main amp board.

Acoustic reaserch subwoofer dont have any sound

If this is a powered sub then it's most likely the internal amp inside it that has failed. It's more than likely the part that works the hardest on the board. IE the main amp semicoductor.

No sound plugged in with low green light on and connected properly. This unit worked perfectly for 3 years never an issue, now there is only a low hum, with no response to the input.

If the fuse has gone you would get no power at all. Subwoofers are basiacally mono amps that only put out bass tones. So when you get no sound the likely cause is the semiconductor that does most of the work that amplifies the signal. It could be an IC amp or FET or a Transistor, it could have an heatsink on it. But I would look to that for the cause of your problem.

While jammin the amp with two tens its goes out and the amp gets hot

It sounds like the problem is simply that you are requesting too much power from your amp. Make sure that you know what your subwoofers are requesting from the amp. It is probably too much for it too handle. You need to figure out first the total impedance the combined subs are requesting considering the wiring setup you have, then see how much power the amp puts out at that impedance. Then figure out how much power is reaching each individual subwoofer.

I can't get any sound!... Wher is factory amp? and it won't cut off when the truck is shut off.

You may need to run a wire from your constant power or 12v+ (you'll have to figure out which one it is, it's been a long time since i've done this) coming from the stero to your fuse for the windsheild wipers or similar. (something that doesn't run while the vehicle is off) I know it sounds unorthadox but it works.

Scosche amp and subwoofer not working

Be sure you have 12 volts on the remote wire. Fuse power for amp is switched using the REM (remote) wire.

No sound comes out of the subwoofer. Sound passes through and the power light is on, but no subwoofer sound. Any ideas? Fuse? Easy fix? Can this subwoofer be replaced? is it still available? Can I buy a...

this may be a dumb question but have you turned up the signal. there should be a dial on the back that you can turn the power up. power light on, signal passing threw, the only other thing it can be is the built in amp itself may be dead.
