PPI2360 Car Amp. blowing fuses...

I've had this puppy for about 6 years, It's worked great, until about a week ago.. The 25 amp fuses were popped on the side... So I replaced them and they popped again....I have not changed or worked on anything in the car for about 6 months....and i have a 80 amp fuse up front....Im thinking that might have something to do with it but not sure.

Please help! Thanks

I need to know the size of external fuses for a american legacy amp 2000 watt 2 channel 1990

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.

Fuses blowing

It may not be your amp at all, disconnect the power wire from the amp and then try a new fuse. If it still blows you have the power wire grounding out somewhere, if it doesn't then it would have to be the amp.

Need help with my Kicker Amp

Some amplifiers don't work well if the signal source has no connection to chassis ground, This could have caused instability in the amplifier and caused it to fail.

It's also possible that the amplifier had a manufacturing defect.

If you connect the fuses in parallel yes. You can use 12v circuit breakers as long as they are the same fast/medium/slow blow speed as the fuses the manufacturer recommends.

Thing is that most standard fuses are not made to exact standards and one of the two might blow earlier than the other which then in turn wil blow. I would go for either a 40 amp single fuse made for something other than a car situation and place that in the power line or get a 12v circuit breaker

If the fuse blows only after the remote voltage is applied, the output transistors have likely failed. Never use a fuse larger than the one recommended by the manufacturer. It can lead to more extensive damage (including damage to the circuit board) which will make the amp much more expensive to repair.

Spontaneously shorted, now blowing fuses on amp too.

Time to go to the repair shop. Sounds like you have a blown amp. Good luck.
