Question about Car Audio & Video

Car audio I recently blew my car amp fuse, which is a 60amp rating which worked fine for months, so i brought a new pack, which consists of 3, and everytime fitted i fitted a new 1, they all blew. one time i kept the bass at minium level and it still blew. I use a 1200 watt mono amp, which powers two 300watt subwoofers. do you know what the problem could be?

Does it blow the fuse if you disconnect the RCA cables and disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp?

Does it only blow the fuse after the head unit is switched on (only after remote voltage is applied to the amp)?

Amp not working


It sounds like you either blew a fuse, or you cooked your amp. The fuse on the P200.2 amp is a 30A fuse, and it sits right next to the power, ground, and remote wire connections on the end. Pull the fuse out and see if it's blown. You should also check any other fuses that you have in the car before the amp.

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!

Blowing of fuses


The reason your blowing fuses is the amp needs at the least a 150 amp fuse on the wire that runs to your bat. There are fuse blocks that you can put 4 40amp fuse and theres the high dollor ones that you can put all the way to 200amp. When you trun up your amp its drawing to much current for the little 40 amp fuse that you have and will blow it everytime. I recomend Running a 4 gage wire to bat and ground with same. Get you a 150 or above amp fuse from a car audio shop somewhere. anyway sounds like from what you decribed, theres nothing wrong with your amp just the wires and fuse are not big enouf to handle the current that your amp pulls.

Car Amp keeps blowing fuses


The reason why fuses blow is that the current is too much. Is the fuse rating according to the specs ? If yes then ... One or more output power transistor (or audio power IC) may be shorted. have it checked before replacing another fuse as this might cause more damage.

Check your ground wire! Relocate it to another place in the car and try to get a heavier ground wire aswell.

Amp not working correctly goes into protection


Disconnect the speaker wires from the amplifier and see if it still goes into protection mode. If it still goes into protect with the speakers disconnected, there's a problem with the amp; if not, you may have a blown speaker or a shorted speaker wire.

Blowing Fuses


If you disconnect the speaker wires from the amp and the fuse blows only after the remote voltage is applied (when the head unit is switched on), the output transistors are likely shorted.
