Fuse keeps blowing?

The fuse in the amp part of the sub keeps blowing. The light will go blue when you plug it in with a new fuse and in a couple seconds it blows again. No sound can come out while it goes blue or nothing. How can i get it to be powered so the fuse will stop blowing and sound will come out of the sub. I'm using a 1.5 amp fuse.

The fuse is a protective device. Fuses dont blow unless the amp ( in your case ) is drawing too much current. DO NOT put a bigger fuse in. Obviously, there is a problem with the amplifier inside the sub. If the sub is under warranty, send it in for repair to an authorized warranty depot. If not it's not under warranty, then take it to the authorized warranty depot anyway. Why ? because they will have the schematics ( electrical diagrams ) to troubleshoot the unit quickly and it may be a common problem. If it is a common problem, the factory may have released a modification and possibly it could be covered under warranty under a factory 'goodwill' program. Good luck. Rob

I have a Niles SW300 subwoofer that continues to blow fuses. I have replaced the fuse, but when it the power is plugged back in the fuse immediately blows.


ok, temporary cheap fix... (i mean in a ******* engineering kinda way ;-) . . . )
since your primary receiver has a sub-out RCA plug, you can hop into the local pawn shop, buy a cheap receiver and an RCA line splitter, and connect the primary sub-out to the CD or any input EXCEPT phono (resistance is different on the phono rca's). remove the plate from the sub and run the speaker wire from the "pawn stereo" directly to the speaker. replace plate on sub to keep box sealed, and adjust receivers to desired level of bass & volume.
You have spent $50 and now have a decent sounding system again.

Just bought 2 12 in d3 dual 2 ohm subs with d5 600.4 amp. Need to know how to wire subs. They were in a box already I assumed they were wire at 2 o When i hooked One up to my amp it hit really for Jus...


what wattage are the subs and amp? if your subs are more wattage than your amp, your amp will blow fuses as cant handle the output to your subs. for example. you have 2 500 watt subs and a 300 watt amp, that is no good as amp isnt powerful enough. if you have 2 500 watt subs you need at least a 1200 watt amp to power them both. 200 watt more than the combined wattage of subs as amps should never be turned up to max as they tend to blow and overheat more quickly. 80% volume on amps is reccomended by installers and manufactures.

It keeps blowing my fuse for my stock radio. Pushing a 10" sub.. Fuse on my amp is good. In-line fuse is good. But it keeps blowing the radio fuse in my panel.. ? Please help.. Thanks Ryan


Check the amp turn-on wire. It's a blue/white wire running from the radio to the amp. It's probably label REM at the amp. This wire sends a switched 12 volts from the radio to the amp. It is probably shorting out somewhere between the radio and the amp.

Mission m-cube sub fuse keeps blowing


If you have replaced with the correct rating and the fuse blows off then you will need to check for higher current drain in the sub woofer or the network. After replacing the fuse load up the subwoofer slowly, reduce the bass and as you increase check at the point the fuse blows off. Now we need to analyse if the rating of the amplifier you are using is rated for the subwoofer. If your subwoofer has a higher rating you can increase the rating by about 25% and check again. Some amplifiers give a very higher voltage on full bass which could result in such a condition. Moderate this and check again. If the fuse stays Ok you can continue with this new rating.Otherwise the output of the amp at higher volume needs a confirmation. Hope this helps. Good day

Subwoofer issues


Hi,

The fuse blows when the current that passes through it are beyond its rating. This could be brought about by excessive consumption of the load, in this case the amplifier powering the sub-woofer.

Repairs would involve component level and require that you be familiar with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Often it is just the finals that needs to be replaced. Of course we cannot discount the possibility of other components or section such as the power supply.

The smoke indicates something heating up such as a resistor or diode or a capacitor.

Should you be uncomfortable opening the unit and doing a DIY (do-it-yourself), then perhaps you need to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Should the downtime and cost of repair be no longer economically reasonable, purchase of a new unit might save you further trouble.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Sub woofer keeps blowing fuses


NO dont try a 3 amp fuse.It is made to BLOW if there is a problem. That sub is not worth fixing, JUNK it. There are a lot of problems with it. Such as heating up and melting the board witch could cause fires. Thats what happened to mine. Like I said JUNK it and buy a different one.
