Question about Rockford Fosgate P3001 Car Audio Amplifier
My inline fuse keeps blowing after afew mins of use.
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.
