Check your speaker load. It probably should be 4 ohms per channel. Also, if you are bridging then you must double your ohms load. It may be that your old amp could tolerate a lower impedence (ohms load) than the new amp. Do this now so you don't fry your amp. Good luck.

SOURCE: humming noise in amp
You must break it down through a process of eliminating items. With the system running unplug the RCAs from the amp. Do you still hear the noise? Try turning the gain down on the amp a bit and increasing the subwoofer level on the head unit instead. Make sure you have a low pass crossover set (probably below 80Hz).
Does the noise change with engine RPM?
Try a different RCA cable. I find that most times noise filters will make the problem worse not better. If none of the above things work, check that the grounds within the car are good, battery to frame, to engine block and chassis. Sometimes a bad vehicle ground is the cause. If all else fails, hook it up to someone else's system and see how it works.

SOURCE: car amp blows 12 volt wire fuse
the wire from your battery is blowing fuses? and you are using 20-30 A fuses? mine has a 100A fuse..look into getting new wire plus my wire is 4 gauge.., 1600 watts is too powerful for a 12 g wire and a 30 A fuse

Generally, this indicates that there's at least one shorted output transistor.
Disconnect all speaker wires from the 'amplifier's speaker terminals' and disconnect RCA/signal cables from the amp. If it powers up normally, the speakers/wiring need to be checked. If it still blows the fuses, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.
I'd recommend using two 10 amp fuses. The amp will power up with 10 amp fuses if there is no problem. If there is a problem, there's less of a chance of doing more damage by using the 10 amp fuses.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
