Amp fuse keeps blowing when car is turned off


It sounds like that fuse is supplying power to more than just the amp and is being shorted out in the START mode. Normally I would think the power to the sound system would be cut off by the ignition switch in the START mode. Try to find out what else that fuse supplies power to. You can disconnect suspected trouble areas to see if that helps locate the source of the fault.

My 80 amp fuse blows everytime i hook up my battery


You have a 40amp fuse for the key switch, and the main component on the 80amp circuit is the alternator.
I would disconnect the alternator, hook up the battery without the fuse, and use a test light across the 80amp fuse terminals to see if the short has been removed.

Just bought 2 12 in d3 dual 2 ohm subs with d5 600.4 amp. Need to know how to wire subs. They were in a box already I assumed they were wire at 2 o When i hooked One up to my amp it hit really for Jus...


what wattage are the subs and amp? if your subs are more wattage than your amp, your amp will blow fuses as cant handle the output to your subs. for example. you have 2 500 watt subs and a 300 watt amp, that is no good as amp isnt powerful enough. if you have 2 500 watt subs you need at least a 1200 watt amp to power them both. 200 watt more than the combined wattage of subs as amps should never be turned up to max as they tend to blow and overheat more quickly. 80% volume on amps is reccomended by installers and manufactures.

Amp blowing fuses


Your amp is blowing fuses to protect your circuit. The type of 12V battery does not matter. For whatever reason you are over driving the amp. 2 Ohms sounds like a very low impedance for a car amplifier output. I am assuming you have the two 12" speakers wired in parallel. Most are rated at 4 Ohms which means you are pulling twice the current with the 2 Ohm load. Also, the bigger the speaker, the bigger the magnet, the bigger the coil, the larger the inductance, the heavier the load. Make sure these speakers are matched with your amp. A small amp driving large speakers will shut down at high volumes. Try putting them in different channels. Good Luck.

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.

First,
Disconnect any input cables from the amp. Turn down the volume controls and disconnect the speakers. Power back on. If you still blow fuses with nothing hooked up, have the amp fixed.
If the fuse holds, shut down and connect the speakers, leaving the volume controls down. Power up and see if your fuse holds. If you have hum, an output transistor is most likely shorted. If you have no noise, SLOWLY turn up the volume controls and listen for the hum. If all is quiet, turn down the volume controls and connect your input cables and turn the volume back up. Noise? check your cables!
