I hate to tell you this, but you have something major. Shorted. Check your wires and conections with a meter. The bad news. Is your amp may be a goner.

SOURCE: Please help

Check to make sure you speaker has not shorted. Try a different speaker. If this is not the case you could have an internal shorted transistor inside of the amplifier. or in some cases both. If it is in the amp and you are comfortable working on the amp remove the cover and along the side connected to the heatsink. You will find the smps and the output transistors. use an ohmeter and check across the three legs one way you sould get one reading and if you flip the leads you will get another. if you encounter no resistance, no matter which way the leads are placed. That transistor will probaly need to be replaced. But check the speaker before you do anything. and the wires going to the speakers.

SOURCE: 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.

If the amp is a 2 channel I would hook up each voice coil to a different channel. Also, make sure you hook your amp up as close to the sub as possible. With a sub that size you need to eliminate any delay in signal transfer because the sub is so larg.

Sounds like a grounding issue. Check all groundings from the amp and make sure the ground and a hot wire is not touching. If not, it is probable a bad amp or your reduction in ohm rating is probably too low for the speakers. Amp to speaker ratio.

One speaker is working more than the other


I would replace the wire your sub is hooked up to and try hooking up the sub that was sparked to the opposite channel on the amp to make sure the amp is not the culprit. Also switch RCA cables L to R, R to L
