My amplifier fuse

I have 2 10" kicker subwoofers and a 1200watt sony xplod amplifier. the amplifier has 2 40amp fuses, and i was told i would need to rewire all my equipment to keep the fuse in my battery wire from blowing constantly like it does. is there any truth to this, or is it possible to just find a 80amp fuse from a car audio store of some sort?

The wire must be able to handle 80 amps of current. You would need 6 gauge or larger for 80 amps. If you have a smaller wire and you use an 80 amp fuse, it will be a fire hazard.

Can I run 8 speakers and 1 sub through 1 1200watt 2:1 Sony Xplod?


asuming the 8s are 4ohms each; wire two in series and that gives you 8ohms then two more in series then you put those together in parallel and it gives you a 4ohm load. repeat with other four for the other side. you should then be able to bridge the sub


series; posative of one speaker to negative of other speaker and that doubles your ohms

parallel; posative to posative negative to negative and that cuts the ohms in half

Kicker l7 dvc 2 ohm wired to sony xplod xm1652z amplifier isnt pushing the sub


it is not the way how get most wattage from your amp. If it is rated to drive a 4-ohm load then it should be ok for a 4-ohm load. If it is rated for a 2-ohm load, then you should not be loading less than that impedance. I recommend a 4-ohm load.
Take note: it is the sound quality from the source that makes up all the total quality of your audio system. If you are overdriving the amps it will give distortion too.
There are many factors to consider when it comes to quality of a car sound system- speaker enclosure design, choice of speaker or driver, equalization, etc...
One more thing, try to get at least no voltage drops if you are wiring the subwoofer amp away from the car's battery.
hope this helps.
