To much power draw
1. a short in the power line causing the amps to go haywire, i have seen a short in a 8 guage wire before where the seats had been removed for the installation and when the seats were put back in they caught the wire under the bolt, amp worked fine at low lvls but at higher volume the short caused the fuse to blow, verify there is no shorts,
2. speakers not set in proper configuration for the amp, you may have it setup so that they are at 16ohm or 1ohm and the amp can't handle that ohm specs causing the amp to over load and draw more power.
3. Blown sub, a blown sub can cause it's ohms to go crazy while it's moving causing the amp to overwork itself. however the sub may still sound fine. you can check this by hooking a multimeter up to both posts of the sub set on ohm and push the speaker cone up and down looking for spikes on the ohm meter. ==This is a very common cause of the problem you are describing.==

Signs of a short, did any wires touch while you where hooking or un hooking the amp? if not then the internal power supply probably has a short in it and needs to be repaired. you can swap the fuse for a good one and hook it back up and make sure you don't touch any wires and if it blows it again then your issues is internal and will need repair if it doesn't and everything seems fine then wires could have touched or the amp was ran past it's limit and blew the fuse to protect it self. good luck and ask any more question you have
