Onkyo tx-sv424 keeps blowing power up fuse,i blew it hooking up about 8 speakers insteaqd of the 2 i got with it

Unless you hook up the speakers so that you present the correct load to the output amps, you will continue to blow fuses and eventually damage your output stages. And if you hook up all those speakers in parallel you are indeed in deep duty. Get yourself a book regarding speaker wiring, etc.

MTX 8302 sound just quit on front speakers

hi Dan....Have you had any other service or installs shortly prior to the onset of clipping? In any case, the 8302 has Onboard Thermal Protection which is kicking in due to excessive heat. If you've had this running fine for a period of time, by that I mean at least a month, then we need to focus on why you're suddenly overheating......please update your post with any further information and progress.....good luck my friend

Ihave a keenwood kac 7252 amp that is running two mtx thunder 4500 12`s but amp fuse keeps blowing at higher volume why?

1.-check proper heat sink, or dissipation.
2.- check speaker impedance. Must match between amp and speakers.
3.-low power line on the house may cause low efficience work on the amp, overheat, and finally fuse protection.
4.- finally, check speaker wires. Thin cable overheat amp too.

Why the fuse blow

Possible causes...
1. Your power wires into the amp are reversed
2. Something in the amp is shorted
3. Your sub is shorted
4. Your sub is incorrectly hooked up and is showing a lower load than the amp can handle.

Check resistance on speakers. And make sure your not overloading amp with incorrect ohm load for speakers.. You raise and lower speaker ohms by wiring them in a series or parallel. It's a good idea to make sure your power cable sizes are correct and can handle the voltage & amperage.

I hook up my amp with no speakers on it but keeps blowing the fuses on main fuse block coming off batt. what could it be and how much to fix

Fuses blow like that when there's an overload. This is often caused by a semiconductor device that is acting like it is a piece of wire. The most common fault in amps is the devices on the heatsink, that power the speakers. The cost will depend on how much the devices are and how many have gone.
