SOURCE: Blown fuses
This is a sign the you have poor voltage regulation. Which may mean that you are taxing the electrical system of your vehicle. I would suggest you adding a secondary electrical supply for you audio system. This can be done by adding an extra alternator and voltage regulator and battery supply. This will allow you to drive your audio system without having it (power supply) split between the vehicle and the audio system. The fact is your system is drawing to much current for the unit and your vehicle. You are blowing the 20-amp fuses which means the the amp is creating a currnet draw which is past the rated value of the fuses, which if done too many times could damage the power amp components in the unit. I would also check the ohmage reating on the speakers connect to the unit since you may have the wrong impedance which may also cause excessive current draw and actuate some sort of overcurrent protection.

SOURCE: Amplifier wont move subs
I dont know if this will help you but start at the deck and make sure that the outputs(RCA) arent crossed over to highpass and do the same at the amp make sure that its set for lowpass- set half gain -bass boost half gain- subsonic minimum - If that doesnt help try using an i pod with an adaptor that you can play it right into the amp this is to see if you are getting signal from the deck to the amp if it doesnt work with an i pod or mp3 plugged directly into it then you may have got you a blown amp going on- good luck with that

Wow, thats a really powerful amp! attached is a link to the user manual for the M2000 here. You want to follow example #4, this will wire you up for 4ohms total pumping out 1500W. Plenty of bang and bump as long as your airspace is correct! :) Also, make SURE you wire up that amp with 1/0 power cable and you can step it down to 2Ga. no more than 2.5' to the amp. The worst thing to do is under wire an amp. you will also want to upgrade your vehicle ground wire from the negative (-) battery terminal to the car chassis. I would go 1/0 with that new ground, you will drive up the impedance of your overall system if your ground is too small.
Hope this helps, -Remy
