start with a 50, may need to increase it if you are not using a large capacitor.
600 watts = 12x
x= 600 watts / 12 volts
x = 50 amps

If the fuses were the problem then you would be replacing them all the time. Fuses are only good once - and are only in place to protect the circuitry from damaging overcurrent situations.

More likey, the problem is a thermal protection resulting from over-driving the amplifier. What impedance are the speakers you are running? Does the amplifier support that impedance? Typically, car audio runs 4-8 ohm impedance. Many amps have a switch to place the unit in the proper impedance mode.

Check your wiring. Do you have it wired correctly?

25 to 30 amp fuses will work great, anything lower could possibly blow a fuse when a good bass note hits even if there is nothing wrong with the amp. Hope this helps.

Can't really find anything about them but maybe if you contact Legacy and beg a little they might have a circuit diagram hiding away somewhere. Here:Legacy

Check and see what size fuses it uses. Your watt power means nothing without good fuses. My suggestion would be to go buy 40a fuses and replace the ones you already have.

Optimum sound performance needed


1) legacy products are highly overrated and i have never seen one put out the power it claims
2) if you are running the amp bridged, you need to match the impedance of the speakers to the amps highest output impedance, otherwise your system will not sound all that great...

what size fuse or fuses does your amp use? what size wire did you install with (power and ground)? did you connect direct to battery or did you connect to a fuse block or similar? did you use a stiffening capacitor? does it sound like it is clipping when you turn it up or is it just distorted? what kind of box are you using for the speakers (ported, vented, sealed, bandpass)?

if you give me the model number of your speakers and your amplifier i can probably help you more, but with the information you have provided, this is all i can offer..

hope it helps,
trin
