Rockford 1001bd blowing fuses...

Hey my 1001bd stopped working the other day. I heard a pop sound and then no more bass. The fuse on the power cable was blown so I replaced it and as soon as I turned the ignition on the fuse burnt immediately. I tried it again with the same result. Any help would be super appreciated. Thanks

Re: Rockford 1001bd blowing fuses...

It sounds like you've got a short to ground in either your power line or internally in your amp. Either that or the fuse on your amp (usually right on the side) might be blown. Check your power line and make sure that your amp isn't screwed directly to any metal parts of your car, as some amps will short like this. If there's nothing wrong with the power line, send it in for warranty or bring it to your local audio store to have them check it. If you feel comfortable with trying to fix it yourself, then take it apart but be advised that internal screws usually have a glued spot so they can tell if you've disassembled it.

When i started to plug my battery in my amp made

you have blown the actual filters that make the sound. a amp is basically a filter with the same filters on both channels on each side of the inside of the amp - channel 1 and channel 2, that pop was in the heat sinks of the amp usually. if you have replaced the fuse in this amp and you get no on light, the internal amp is in need of repair

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).
