Re: fuses

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

Why does my spa 500 amp blow a fuse every time I hook up my 15" lanzar sub to it

Because it's drawing more power than the fuse can handle get a fuse with a higher rating. A 100 app fuse worked great for main power with my setup 760w amp a 15"sub 2 10"subs and a 12" sub. Also my amp had 2 30amp fuses on it one for each channel but I ran everything out of one channel.

There is no power to this amp. i have checked the fuse in the plug and thats fine so i assume there's a fuse in the amp that may have gone but can't find it. can you help? th

Usually blade type fuses right on the side of them, Rarely some have internal circuit breakers with a button to press to reset them, some reset automatically.

What fuse do i use for my Jensen 2 Channel Bridgeable Amplifier with 300 Watts Peak? thank you.

Watts = Voltage x Current

300 = 12 x Current

Current = 25 amps

Sounds like a 30 amp slo-blo fuse would be about right -- you could start with a 25 amp and see if that holds it.

I have a lanzar opti drive plus 500 old school,i have 2 12'' 1200 watt pyles,running in parallel at 2 ohm. when i bridge it at 2 ohm 1000 watts it blew my 40 amp in line fuse.

The 40 amp fuse is too small. 1000 watts = 12 volts @ 83 AMPS. Bigger power wire my friend. If you want to sell, let me know.

Radio lock, how do i unlock it what is the code

I am a Master Installer and have install thousands of amplifiers for 12 yrs and I have never heard of an amp having a radio lock? If your amp dont work just look to see if your fuses are not blown.

No amp that I've heard have a circuit breaker that you can reset. Unless its in the hood of the car. Some people install these cause they dont want to keep buying fuses everytime the amp current is to much but they are usually big in size and not practical to make in a amp. Just look at your circuit breakers in your house they are huge boxes.

If amp is already connected in your car. Go to the hood and find the large fuse connected to your battery. You will see an aftermarket 4guage to 8 guage thick power cable usually blue or red. Inline with it is a tubular fuse holder or a big rectangular fuse holder. Replace the fuse inside it no matter if it still looks good because sometimes internally the connection got bad you can test it with a multi-meter for continuaty. The amp should work again.

Sorry for the long answer but your question has very little info. You have a pic of a amp and your talking about a radio lock. Its possible your having problems with a radio code? specify the radio aftermarket or model & yr of the car please next time.

I stop getting power or sound to my sub

Double check your fuses. It sounds like you blew a fuse. Check the fuse for the radio aswell as the inline fuse for you amp. On some amplifiers there is a circuit breaker reset button. Check to see if your amp is equiped for that. I did find this quote for reset out of the owners manual.
Remote Turn-on
Automatically turns amplifier on when connected to the head unit's remote output. The
amplifier will turn on and off with the head unit to save current consumption. This control
also operates the reset circuit for the amplifier's protection. It must be connected with
the head unit in order to reset protection circuits.

3 amps 2 subs sound system for car, need wiring help

As i read your problem i can recommend you that connecting each of the hifonics amp to each hifonics sub with the same specs by getting the specs in interfacing the two or you can simply look to the output of the amp and the input of the sub and find a suitable plug that fits to them.

In the case if you want to run each hamp to individually run each sub but sharing 3 farad capacitor: what i can suggest is that you connect in parallel one connecting wire of each input or ouput of the amp or sub. Its like connecting a connector from each of the input or output of the amp or sub to one leg of the capacitor, and connecting two wires to the other leg, one is being connected to the amp or sub and the other wire is connected to the other amp or sub.

In the case of putting a circuit breaker at the car battery: what i can suggest is that you find an appropriate circuit breaker that fits the specs of the car battery then connect it in series on the positive supply or read the specs of the circuit breaker before you connect it to the battery. Having a circuit breaker is like having a fuse but with special advantages in favor of the circuit breaker.

In the case of having power to the amps you can run one power wire to the amps by dividing the power wire into two, one connected to the amp and the other wire to the other amp. Then you can connect each amp and sub in series individually by connecting one wire b/w amp and sub. I hope i solved your problem
