Is it the correct size fuse ? Is it the power fuse or remote ? Either way check your connections going into the amp . Try this hook your other amp to the set of wires for the rockford if that amp has a problem its a wireing problem if not chances are its an interal problem on the rockford . Hope this helps !
Be more specific. Shorting as in the amp is turning on and off? Check the voltage coming from the remote wire on the deck and make sure its up to par. Rockford especially older amp are prone to the remote terminal coming loose from the board and or traces breaking where it solders to the board. Also make sure the spade terminal you are using on the remoter terminal of the amp is not touching the sheet metal around it. Always use an insulated one and never just wrap a wire around the terminal. Keep me posted....
You should verify some other way (with a multimeter or another amp/device) that your 12V is working at the amp. Then to troubleshoot the Remote wire, take a short lead of scrap wire and run it from the 12V power input of the amp over to the Remote input like a jumper. If the amp still doesn't power up, then look for and check the fuse on the amp. If there's good power at the amp, the remote input has good power, and the amp doesn't turn on, and the fuse isn't blown, then the amp is probably toast. Good luck!
Good luck. Rockford Fosgate does not sell or release any service parts/diagrams AT ALL. They want you to buy a new one or send it in to them to be repaired at an exhorbitant price. Also, from my experience, most RF amps are unrepaairable due to their construction design. the outputs are case soldered and cannot be removed individually. Time to upgrade.
that amp should work fine with those speakers,just make sure that they(speakers)are wired for 2 ohms.at 500-600watts coming from amp, you should be getting 250-300 watts per speaker,just dont crank your gain too high on the amp.
