Hi my adcom 5802 get right Chanal not working . I don't know why every time I put 2 fuse for that Chanel is burn st thing look like diot ... And after that 2 fuse burn too


If I can read you right you are saying that the device keeps blowing the fuse?

Fuses blow when there is an overload. As it is an amplifier we are dealing with the cause is more than likely a shorted output transistor or more than one, or whatever does the main amplification for the device. These devices are located on the main power amp board attached to a heat sink. If the amp has fuses for each channel then you only need to replace the devices on that channel, with the fuses blowing on it. The cause of shorted devices is often bad speaker wires or them touching.

Unit does not power up. Opened unit and found fuse closest to power switch blown inside unit. Will replacing this fuse get my unit working again? If so, what would cause this fuse to blow? please help.


It is possible that the fuse was blown due to a surge and replacing it will resolve the problem, but I wouldn't expect it. Usually when the main fuse blows, the primary stage of the power supply has a problem and the replacement fuse will blow as well. This is not a cheap amp and I would suggest that it be checked by a service tech. A few quick measurements internally can determine the likely fault and should not cost too much as an estimate fee.

Please keep us posted.

My car Amp keeps blowing the main fuse, How to find the short?


Hello A4en1, hi, A short circuit need not be burned, the short usually are semiconductors such as ICs and transistors or diodes, I suggest you replace your IC power amplifier.

I have an spl gorilla series 1250watt amp that blows fuses


REMOVE THE RCA INPUTS AND DISCONNECT THE SPEAKERS, THEN POWER THE AMPLIFIER UP WITH THIS NO INPUT, NO SPEAKER LOAD CONDITION. IF IT STILL BLOWS THE FUSE, THEN IT WILL NEED TO BE SERVICED. IF IT BLOWS THE FUSE BEFORE TURNING IT ON, THEN YOUR PROBLEM IS IN THE POWER SUPPLY SECTION. IF IT BLOWS THE FUSE AFTER ATTEMPTING TO TURN IT ON, THEN YOUR PROBLEM IS PROBABLY IN THE OUTPUT SECTION. ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT THE P1'S ARE REALLY NOT RATED FOR THAT MUCH POWER AND YOU MAY HAVE DAMAGED THE VOICECOILS. BEFORE REINSTALLING THE AMPLIFIER, MAKE SURE TO CHECK THE SPEAKERS FOR SHORTED VOICECOILS OR YOU WILL POSSIBLY DAMAGE THE AMPLIFIER AGAIN. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V

Have a kenwood kac849 600w amp keep blowing fuse on amp as soon as power is too it power wire got wet and now this can i bypass that fuse some how


It would be very dangerous to bypass a fuse. If it keeps blowing, bypassing the fuse will only create lots of internal damage and maybe a fire as well. The fuse is blowing for a reason, the amplifier is not going to somehow start working because you bypassed the fuse. You also need to stop trying to turn it on, every time it blows the fuse, it keeps stressing the components inside. You have a shorted power supply, probably water damage as well since the power wire got wet.

I repair car amplifiers for a living, and can tell you with all honesty that bypassing the fuse would be a terrible mistake to make, the amplifier would end up being un-fixable with holes burned right into the board.

Please, just take it in for service or get a new amplifier. That is the only sensible thing to do. The amp will not start working bypassing the fuse, it will only start smoking.
