If the amp blows a fuse with no remote voltage applied, the amp has a short in the primary side of the power supply. If the fuse only blows after remote voltage is applied, the amp probably has shorted output transistors.

I got a 2200 walt amp with a 5 G battery wire and my fuse keeps blowing its a 100 A whats the problem


low voltage could be an issue put a meter on it the equation is voltage times wattage equils amperage so if volts drop amps go up. put a sutable fuse size to the wire if your having same problem add a capacitor or battery and try agin.

I Hooked up a Performance Teknique 1200 watt 2 channel amp to my 2 12" comp kickers. and before doing all this i took out the fuse. from my car battery. after everything was hooked up i put the fuse back...


disconnect the amp and then put the fuse in.if it blows,there is a pinched wire causing a short.
Also,big amplifiers like that have to be wired battery direct.
the surge current at boot up can pull 100 amps for 10 millisec.

I have a 25 wat fuse in my power wire connected to my amp and i keep blowing it. should i put a bigger fuse in it?


Hello grabert205,

You do not say if the fuse blows immediately upon powering up or while the amplifier is operating. If it blows immediately, I'd check the power and ground.

If it is blowing the fuse while operating, I'd try a 30A and see if it holds. At maximum output of 100 watts times 4, the amplifier needs about 31 amps of current at 12.8V. So driving it hard could certainly blow a 25A fuse.

Hope this helps.

Accidentaly switched 12v and ground on amp


NOTHING INTERNAL BUT YOU SHOULD PUT A 30 AMP FUSE BACK IN AS SOON AS YOU CAN TO KEEP THE 20 AMP FROM POPPING THATS THE WHOLE REASON FOR THE FUSE TO KEEP THE ELECTRONICS FROM BLOWING

Rockford amp cut out


Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect the RCAs. Replace the 30 amp fuse with a 15 amp fuse. If you turn it on and it blows the fuse, it's likely that it has shorted output transistors. If that's the case, you need to have the amp repaired.

Two vasonik amps turn on and the sony amps wont (all i did was switch the wires over) whats the deal


heyman... try checking the fuses on both the sony amps. if they are ogood...next try hooking up each amp individually...if they will turn on seperatly but not at the same time it could be due to over abuse of the single ground and power leads that feed your amps. meaning that whie 2 amps will draw more power, they will also break down the wires faster. a continuity test of the power and groundwires should also be done.
