Any local audio shop can fix this but, most will tell you to buy a new one. this is a capacitor issue. the capacitors have lost the ability to store the current need to operate this amp. the regulators are blown as well. this repair will cost about 200+.

You need to go tho a block fuse which will be able to handle more load but will still give way before the amp its self would get fried i recommend a 75 fuse or higher

I'm running 8 gauge wire for battery cable and ground cable....my amp.is a momentum 600 watt...2 channel. ....my fuse is blowing every time I hook up either cable...


First of all, what size fuse? Check the amp and see what max amperage is, and insure your fuse is that size. Secondly, I suspect either a blown speaker or blown outputs. Disconnect the speakers from the amp and see if the fuse still blows. If it does, either you are hooking two wires up improperly, or your outputs are toast.

It keeps blowing fuses when i put one in


Check that you wiring is correct. Positive to positive and negative to negative.

If it still blows fuses then Power supply or output rails are dead short.

Take it in to a reputable dealer and have it repaired.

Kenwood KAC-729S keeps blowing fuses. Checked all cables, re-ran power, remote, and ground. All good, still blows them at power-up.


Hello opey_69a,

Here are the troubleshooting steps for fuses blowing.
1) Remove all wiring except ground, power and remote and see if the amp powers up without blowing the fuses. If it does, the problem is in the input cables or speaker wiring.
2) The use of loudspeaker impedances below the recommended minimums will cause the amp to draw excessive current - check.
3) A shorted or grounded RCA cable may cause the fuses to blow - check.
4) If an amplifier fuse blows continually, with only +12 volt, ground and remote leads connected, the amplifier is probably defective, most likely shorted output MOSFET's. In this case the amp needs professional repair or replacement.

Hope this helps.

I have a dual XIA3145 580 watt amp that keeps blowing fuses


Generally, this indicates that there's at least one shorted output transistor.

Disconnect all speaker wires from the 'amplifier's speaker terminals' and disconnect RCA/signal cables from the amp. If it powers up normally, the speakers/wiring need to be checked. If it still blows the fuses, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.

I'd recommend using two 10 amp fuses. The amp will power up with 10 amp fuses if there is no problem. If there is a problem, there's less of a chance of doing more damage by using the 10 amp fuses.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Blowing fuses on the Vosonik VB101PK


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"

Blowing fuses


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

Does the fuse blow without remote voltage applied?

Lanzar 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...
