I have a jl audio slash 500/1 series amp, and it keeps blowing the fuse. am i using the right one? which one should i be using?


if its the fuse in the fuse link then you should be using the a 50A fuse thats if on your amp there is fuses that total 60A when you add it up and if it still blows then you might have a short in the power wire between the battery and the 50A fuse

Adcom gfa 555 blows the 10 amp fuse and the 6 amp fuse on the far right


Any fuse blowing is caused by a shorted component in either the power supply section or main audio amp part. Follow the fuse circuit and see where it leads you. Look around for burnt of damaged parts. Suspect anything sitting on a heat sink. The most common culprit is the audio amp main transistors, especially if someone shorted the speaker leads together. In the power part it could be the transformer, the large Electrolytic capacitors, rectifier, or voltage regulator. Some amps use an IC for amplification and this can blow the fuse.

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.

Keeps blowing fuses!!!


HI ..PUT AN AMP METER IN LINE TO SEE WHAT THE AMP IS DRAWING..WHEN IT IS CRANKED UP ..IS 20 AMP WHAT IT CALL FOR ON THE AMP IF SO I WOULD NOT GO ANY HIGHER.....BUT IF YOU HAD JUST USED 20 AS A STARTING POINT FOR AN AMP-AGE...SOMETIMES IT IS BETTER THAT THE FUSES BLOW ONCE IN AWHILE THAN THE AMP...ALSO CHECK FOR A LOOSE GROUND.....GOOD LUCK

1989 Volvo 740 audio fuse 26 blowing


I had a friend who owns a small dealership make a call and he received a wiring schematic that showed that the radio has an external audio amp located under the dash below the steering wheel. The amp was shorted.

Fuse keeps blowing


The amplifier probably has shorted output transistors. If the amp only blows the fuse after remote voltage is applied, the damage may be minor. They generally blow two transistors. Sometimes that's all that needs to be replaced.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Keep Blowing Fuses


Sounds like the amp is shorting somehow. You are obviously shorting out somewhere between the battery and the amp. Are you sure you grounding location is a good one? is the fuse blowing only when you turn the stereo on? Something is not hooked up correctly.

If the fuse at the battery is blowing then it's a short.

If the fuse on the amp is blowing then its probably a bad amp.

Amps


If the amp blows a fuse with no remote voltage applied, the amp has a short in the primary side of the power supply. If the fuse only blows after remote voltage is applied, the amp probably has shorted output transistors.

Amp blowing fuses


The amplifier probably has shorted output transistors.

Disconnect the speakers and RCA cables. Replace the fuses with two 10 amp fuses or a single 20 amp fuse. If the amp blows the fuse when it powers up, the outputs are almost certainly the problem. Don't try it with the two 30 amp fuses. The smaller fuses will provide more protection for the power supply. If the amp powers up with the smaller fuses and they don't blow, check the speakers and the wiring (for shorts to ground or shorts between wires).

Hok up amp and all fuses blow on distribution block


somehow, DC car voltage has gotten to the speaker outputs of your amp! your fuses are saving your speakers from meltdown. your amp has melted down. toss it after checking with ohmeter as follows: disconnect amp completely. red wire from ohmmeter to +12Vin. black wire to SPK+. if ohms are anything below 1000 ohms, then toss it. An electrical short is equivalent to flooding your entire house with a leaky faucet. No telling what that rapid current will encounter along the amplifier section. you could get lucky and find all power MOSFETS have shorted and replace them. good luck.
