    Or it could be that a 500 watt amp has too high of a current draw for a stock alternator. You never specified if it was the amp blowing fuses or the electrical power fused at the battery.

The most likely problem is that the output transistors are shorted. There are no protection circuits in these. Depending upon the number of transistors in the side that is shorted, the cost for repair could easily exceed the replacement cost. Check with a local shop for an estimate on the repair.

So I have the first kickers that came out the 15 will a 800 watt amp push um without eather blowin out


If you are referring to the Kicker L5 solo-baric subwoofer, then an 800 watt peak amp will not blow even one of those subs. The L5 is capable of handling 1000 watts peak and 500 wrms. An 800 watt peak amp will usually have around 400 wrms. Underpowering the subwoofer will not hurt the amp or the sub(s).

I Hooked up a Performance Teknique 1200 watt 2 channel amp to my 2 12" comp kickers. and before doing all this i took out the fuse. from my car battery. after everything was hooked up i put the fuse back...


disconnect the amp and then put the fuse in.if it blows,there is a pinched wire causing a short.
Also,big amplifiers like that have to be wired battery direct.
the surge current at boot up can pull 100 amps for 10 millisec.

I have a 25 wat fuse in my power wire connected to my amp and i keep blowing it. should i put a bigger fuse in it?


Hello grabert205,

You do not say if the fuse blows immediately upon powering up or while the amplifier is operating. If it blows immediately, I'd check the power and ground.

If it is blowing the fuse while operating, I'd try a 30A and see if it holds. At maximum output of 100 watts times 4, the amplifier needs about 31 amps of current at 12.8V. So driving it hard could certainly blow a 25A fuse.

Hope this helps.

Concept cc752l how many watts


A easy way to tell how many watts an amp has is to look at the fuses on the amp itself eg. if it has one 10 amp fuse its probably a 100 watt amp, or say a 30 amp fuse would be around 300 watts. Most amps have more than one, so just add up the fuses and times it by 100.

Rockford fosgate 800 a2 amp power?


Hello desperate2le,

Watts delivered is a function of the voltage times the current. If the amp was 100 percent efficient, it would need 33 amps at 12V for 400 watts. At 14.4V, it would only need 28 amps. Of course, amplifiers are NOT 100 percent efficient, only about 50-60 percent in many cases, but somewhat higher for monoblocks, maybe 80-90 percent. So you're looking at a fuse in the 60-80A range. In the absense of a specific fuse size from the manufacturer, I'd start the primary fuse at a 60A and if the amp blows it on power up/immediately/frequently, move up to an 80A.

All of the Rockford-Fosgate 2-channel bridgeables I've ever seen show using the left positive (+) and the right negative (-) for bridging. But if it's not shown right on the amp, I'd call or email RF for the correct connection. The new amps do show it.

Hope this helps.

What is best amp to run 2 12 inch cvr's


12In Kicker CVRs
are Dual Voice Coil, and You can run each voice coil around 200 Watts RMS

So each sub will have a 400 Watt RMS and 800 Watts peak.

Now since you have 2, Your total will be 800 Watts RMS and 1600 Watts Peak.

I would get really any amp that sits at around 800-1000 Watts RMS.

These are kicker but they are low end so i wouldnt push them to the extreme.

1000-1200 Watts RMS Max and but keep the Gain down on the amp. They will hit no doubt but i wouldnt push these subs or you will be disapointed in the long run.

I would get a Fosgate or MTX amp.

You can get any amp really but find something right around 1000 Watts RMS and it will push those well.

You can go mono block or a 2 channel, just depends on how you want to wire them.

Be careful though. If your running them bridged right now with your mono block, do not run them parallel bridged on a 1000w RMS Amp, you will blow them so fast lol

(RMS = Root Mean Square. Or in other words is the continuous wattage being sent from the amplifier to the subwoffers)

2006 12" Kicker L7 4 ohm


first whats the range in terms of WATTS that your 12" sub can handle in 4 OHMS ? second , lets check the AMP , POWER ACOUSTIK 1800 WATTS , Now thats a lot of power to drive a single 12" sub speaker . your amp is 1800 watts , per channel is around 500 watts , if BRIDGE thats around 1600 watts rms for ONE channel , if your sub can handle that kind of wattage fine , but it will not blow the amp , what it does is shuts down , some kind of protection mode , it will come back on after a minute or so. I suggest to use one channel in stereo mode , or purchase another sub to use the other channel. i hope this helps AJ
