Everything is hooked up right, blew the fuse when i was working on mounting the subs, power touched ground for a second, thought it wouldn't even work till i plugged it in and started working, no red light, replaced the fuse on the amp ( plus the one from the battery) i have it briged at 4 ohm, i have dual voice coil memphis 10s and if one is working more than the other with it bridged would i need to get a new amp or does it sound like i got lucky and just need to rewire the speakers right?

Re: one speaker is working more than the other
I would replace the wire your sub is hooked up to and try hooking up the sub that was sparked to the opposite channel on the amp to make sure the amp is not the culprit. Also switch RCA cables L to R, R to L

okay , well you need to make sure all your conections are in the right spots, and that your IN LINE FUSE, between your amp and battery, the big glass one is not burnt, just take a look at the metal piece inside , if its a sold metal piece its good, if its burnt in half like a broken bridge it needs to be replaced. the next thing is the fuse on your amp, you need to make sure it is not burnt also. Check your remote that it is hooked up to the right wire. then check that your sub/speaker wires are connected properly and secure. YOUR GROUND WIRE IS HUGE HERE also. MAKE SURE IT IS GROUNDED TO A GOOD SPOT, YOU MAY HAVE TO MOVE IT AROUND A FEW TIMES TO FIND A GOOD GROUND!!!! if you check all of these things, it should work fine.. you can fiddle with your amp and bass settings levels. turn em up so when it works you know it, but not too much you dont wanna blow nothing :)
Are you using the correct fuse? if so,
more then likely, you don't have a good ground. Try grounding to something else that has more direct connection to your frame. If that doesnt work, try getting larger power cables.
I had the same problem with my 2500w xplodes all I had to do was get a thicker cable for the ground and battery connection. What was happening, was it was needing more power then the wire and fuse could handle, so it would blow the fuse, since the higher you have it, the more power it needs to feed the watts.
I would try grounding it directly to the frame on a good part of the frame before spending another $70 on new power cables though.
this is caused by inproper wiring from the speakers/subs to the amplifier.. an amp will still put out power to subs and speakers when it's wired improperly but it won't last for very long doing it... 6 months is longer than usual....
signs of a short, did any wires touch while you where hooking or un hooking the amp? if not then the internal power supply probably has a short in it and needs to be repaired. you can swap the fuse for a good one and hook it back up and make sure you don't touch any wires and if it blows it again then your issues is internal and will need repair if it doesn't and everything seems fine then wires could have touched or the amp was ran past it's limit and blew the fuse to protect it self. good luck and ask any more question you have
ok, always use ground and positive from speakers to the amps +/- . Make sure the amp is not grounded. Some amps are made of metal and will ground itself. When ever any fuses pop, this means that something somewhere got grounded. If using metal srews to mount amp that has a metal casing, chances are you will pop a fuse or two. Be careful ajusting the speaker wires with a metal srewdriver, I've done that alot. "POP"
it is probably the rca inputs on the amp may have fried. was your cd decked turned up loudly before the power went out? did any wires accidently touch each other? If had worked fine and then suddenly stopped, than either a wire came loose or the inputs fried. try using different cables and I also suggest disconnecting power for 24 hours and then reconnect. If the green light is on then it is getting power and the problem is in the rca cables or the inputs
if you have real old wires from the amp to the sub try getting new wires on it. check the little wires that go to the cone itself on the sub. sometimes they can manage to get pulled out of their terminals and make sure that thier touching the terminals on the correct spot
