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.

How do I Wire my 12" kicker cvs to a sony xplod 800-watt amp for best possible sound.


I would first need to know what the impedance level is for that sup. You may be able to hook this in mono or in stereo. But you definitely do not want to connect it up to the amplifier where as to cause damage.

Need help installing xplod mex bt39uw


You have to invest in separate cables to the booster amplifier. Be careful that you have the proper relays and fuse for these or you might end up losing your car because of fire.

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

Sony xplod 1200 watt


i had the same ploblem with my amp then i found out i didnt have a good enough ground. Make sure you groung it to your weel well or some part of the frame. Or you mite be running with a fuse thats pushing to much power i use a 100a fuse 5 gage power cord to power my 1200w xplode and my 2 12" kicker comps. Or if your using two diff kind of subs then you amp is confused in why your asking for 500w on one side and 600w on the other this will also make your amp light come on.
