The prior solution would be helpful but you have a monoblock amp not a 2 channel stereo amp and 40 amps is no where near big enough of a fuse, the amplifier uses a single 80 amp maxi type fuse and you dont / cant bridge a mono amp they r internally "bridged" so to speak.
2 dual 4 ohm subs wired together in parralel will make a 1 ohm load at the amp which would give 600 watts per sub, true rated rms all the time so you better have really good subs like a pair of brutuses or better.

to wire it that way do this:
each speaker has 2 coils.
put a jumper wire from 1 coils positive to the other coils positive then do the same on the negatve side of each coil.
then run the + and - of 1 coil to the sub do this for each speaker.
this will make the amplifier see a 1 ohm load for "bridged" operation i run 2 1606d's in 1 car and 4 2000d's in the other all wired this way

That's dependent on your subwoofers. You will need 2 dual 4 ohm subs wired in Parallel, a single dual 2 ohm subwoofer wired in parallel, a single dual .5 ohm wired in series. Or something similar.

I have a HiFonics 1206D amp and it keeps blowing the main fuse


The 60A fuse is WAY too small!!

The amplifier's Fuse is 80A
You will want the MINIMUM battery fuse @ 80A as well.

Since the current draw at the battery is greater because of the resistance of the wire - an 80A - 100A fuse is recommended.

The purpose of this fuse is to protect your BATTERY if something happens along the length of power wire.

What kind of "shop" are you using?? I would find another one!

Protect Light Coming On - BXi 1206D


If you actuate the subwoofer by hand, do you hear any scraping sounds?

It's possible the voice-coil is rubbing and tripping the amplifiers protection.

Try the amp on a different sub.

Power good no green light no subs


Make sure you got a good ground. do not ground on painted surfaces! If you got power from battery, check the remote wire running to cd player. Hook up remote blue wire with the one for cd player. If you still have a problem and the fuse is good, then the amp is fried

Hifonics BXI 1606D problems


it may be a wiring problem you need to make sure all the speaker positives and negatives are correct. I sell alot of hifonics amps and have never had 1 do that. it may also be a bad rca cable. if it only does it when you use the filter i would say not to use it also make sure the gain is no more than 3/4 turned up and the bass boost no more than 1/2. if you have a dif amp try a temp setup using it and if it still does it its a wiring issue. also try 1 speaker at a time on the hifonics and keep adding 1 till it comes back it may be a bad voice coil on 1 sub .

Bridging 800a4


That all depends upon whether or not the sub you are running has dual voice coils or just a single voice coil. The 800a4 is a four channel amp; thus the only way you can bridge it will be 3 channel or 2 channel. If you are running a dual voice coil sub then you can wire the amp two channel and get 400 watts x 2 @ 4 ohms. Make sure that you sub can handle this kind of power though.

Here are the specs:
4 x 100 @ 4 ohms (13.8V - <0.05% THD)
4 x 200 @ 2 ohms (13.8V - <0.10% THD)
2 x 400 @ 4 ohms bridged (13.8V - <0.10% THD)
Fuse: External 60A
Manufactured in 1999 - 2001

Have you confirmed that you have a good signal feeding the amp?

Have you confirmed that the speakers are in good working order and don't have any breaks in the wiring?
