First off, never, ever replace a blown fuse with a bigger one (especially one that is almost twice as big) unless it's an absolute emergency. Most of the time, the reason a fuse blows is because of a problem with the device (in this case, the amp). By installing a larger fuse, there's a very good chance the problem will become permanent (i.e. busted amp).
The amp could be going into an overcurrent mode when the bass hits and power cycling itself to try and reset the problem. If this is the case, take it to a local electronics repair shop and see what they can do.
It's also possible the input voltage to the amp is dropping too low during the bass hit, making the amp restart. Try putting a 1.0F or higher capacitor on the battery to buffer the power during the bass hits.

check your wiring make sure it is not grounding out check you sreaker wiring make sure they are not reversed +to- make sure it has plenty of air ti breath make sure your speakers are wired for two ohms or four it is not stable for one ohm it has a circuit protection if any one of these thins are happening it will kick the red light on and shut down.

seems like a protection feature kicks in and out
check your fuses and possible but a bigger size in and also check your wires make sure your ground is tight

The first thing I would suggest is to check all connections to the amp and speakers, especially the ground. A loose ground can cause the problem listed. You can test this by temporarly running a ground from the amp to the battery neg. . If the amp fires up ok then that means your grounding point for the amp should be checked and cleaned and reattached firmly. If you have a meter(multitester) set it to ohms and check the impedances of the voice coils in the woofers. If one is cooked it may be shorted and tripping the amps protection. Always hook thing up with the sys off and then turn on and test.

Are you getting any sound output at all from amplifier?
Is there a popping or banging coming from speaker?
It could possibly be a faulty output mosfet that is ocillating cause DC to leak onto the speaker output causing it to flip into protect.
