Re: rockfordfosgate amp 750s car problem

If after following solution #1 fuse does not blow you may be overdriving amp into to low impedance (check specs of amp for Impedance limits) Also You may Have low Voltage at amps Power terminals under load causing premature clipping and excessive Current to flow. The higher the Voltage can be held at by using External Caps and High Current Alternator and heavy guage power supply wires the Better amp will perform, Will not clip signal as easy and Current draw may be lower because your not clipping signal. A clipped signal is close to DC and Amp or speaker will eventually fry.

Disconnect all speaker wires and RCA cables from the amp. Replace the fuse with a 30 amp fuse and power up the amp. If the fuse blows, the amplifier probably has shorted/leaking output transistors.

My amp on disco is overheating or blows fuse after 2hrs

Sounds like you have a bad connection. Get thicker wire, ground wire is not connected well or too long, get an inline fuse from battery to amp-inline fuse between the two-, amp remote wire should be well connected. Maybe

I just replaced an amp and now the inline fuse by the battery keeps blowing

Most likely you have your power and ground connections reversed on the amp. That will cause the fuse to blow immediately upon contacting the two sides of the fuse. If the fuse stays intact for a short while but pops after turning the amp/car on and your connections are correct then there's a problem with the amplifier and it either needs to be serviced or replaced.

My system is running hot!!!!!

your subs are the problem, not your amp, your wiring your subs paralelle, means dropping input ohmage, allowing your amp to over heat with minimal load, check the amp specs for running at low ohms, most hifonics amps are rated 2 ohms and higher, some however will run at 1 ohm, only on class b-a amps though.(competition) dropping ohmage will allow the amp to push more power to the voice coils, however the voice coils may not be rated for 1 ohm power, what ohmage are your coils rated at? do you have a min. of 100 amp inline fuse on your 1-0 awg wire? do you have internal fans? you can add mosfets to the amp but if you do so, you'll have to re-program your amps mother board.

What do you do when your amp keeps blowing fuses

First off which fuse is it? The inline fuse from the battery or the amplifiers power supply fuse? Blowing the main fuse from the battery is caused by either the load (your amp) drawing too much current or you have a short to ground somewhere. Maybe there is a tear in the 12Vdc line and it is shorting to the chassis of your car. If the amps power supply fuse is blowing as soon as it turns on your amp has a shorted power supply. This will require internal component changes by a technician. If it is blowing after operation at high volumes I would say change the impedance that the amp is driving. If you are at 2 ohm try to rewire your speakers for four ohm. (go from parallel to series wiring then bridge mono or operate the amp in stereo mode)

Keep blowing fuse under hood when i put power wire in to amp

disconnect the negative battery terminal, replace the fuse with all the wires hooked up to the amp and reconnect the battery terminal, that way the initial surge of power goes through the negative terminal and not your inline fuse. That should solve your problem.

Fuse keeps blowing

The amplifier probably has shorted output transistors. If the amp only blows the fuse after remote voltage is applied, the damage may be minor. They generally blow two transistors. Sometimes that's all that needs to be replaced.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Amp problem

you either have a bad ground or your power line is too small, the farther you go from the battery the larger wire you need.

Wont work

If you were blowing an inline fuse, what size was the fuse and how big did you go up? It's possible the has a short in it.
