Might have a pinched wire creating a shot circuit which in turn blows the fuse?
Or maybe there is a dodgy/unprotected wire connection/solder creating a short?

SOURCE: always blows fuses

I would get a volt/ohm/continuity meter to test the connections. You have a short somewhere. You can take it Car Auto or Tweeter and they can check it for you. Some of these places charge a $35.00 diagnostic fee. If you have a schematic diagram, you can test where the short might be.

SOURCE: 2006 f150 keeps blowing turn signal fuse

It sounds like the fuse is doing what it is supposed to do, and burning out when there is a short circuit. Check the wiring from the fuse block back to the lights and pay special attention to the trailer connection.

My factory car amp does not allow the front door speakers to play highs can I connect those two speakers directly to the head unit connection and have the rest of the door speakers run through the amp ?

That will not work. The reason is frequency response. There are high and low pass filters installed on speaker systems. The reason is that no one speaker can handle all sound ranges. The other thing is that high range speakers are not high wattage speakers because they don't have to be. If you hook the high range to the straight feed from the amp, you will blow them out really fast.

ok im assuming your putting this in a door so remove the door panel then with that gone you should see a speaker just take it out the factory speakers may have a clip just cut it off and figure out witch one is positive and witch one is negative and if you hook it up wrong it wont hurt the speaker

I got a protection light on in my amp and low pass filter cuts out rear speakers even when hooked up front inputs to rear speakers im using the high level inputs as i only have one rca set

Try unplugging all the speakers and then powering the amp up, plug in one at a time to determine when the amp cuts out to protection. Chances are you may have touching wires or a speaker that is about to blow or at worst a amp going/gone bad

Problem with subs and amp

I would first suggest un-hooking the subs, and hooking them up to another known good radio other than the one its hooked to now. Just to make sure you didnt blow the speakers. What is the wattage of the subs? Then if the speakers do work I would hook them up bypassing the amp just to see if the problem exist before or after. Come back after doing this. Thanks

Cordless phone, no power

Amps now have protection circuits on them now to protect them from blowing the electronics. Speakers dont usualy have any protection and can blow quite easy. Usualy when they blow they short out or short to ground and then the amp overheats and kicks off. What you can do is un hook both speakers and turn the power on if it stays on then plug each speaker back in one at a time. If it shuts off again without the speakers then it has to be somthing internal already damaged. Bass and volume are the #2 killers of systems. If when its up loud and the woofer speaker is moving in and out pretty far its on the edge of blowing.
