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.

Soundstream 1.800 amp keeps blowing fuses


Hi,
Check your power wire & ground wire if there is any exposed wires that is touching any surface/wires. A blown fuse means there is a short in your system. Also make sure you are feeding your car amplifier with 12v to 14v (some amplifiers can handle up to 18v).
Here is a link about fuses, also this website will give you everything about car audio.

My eclipse 33250 premium amp keeps blowing fuses when I then it on


If you have wires connected to it may be connected improperly. Check power and ground connections if they are connected properly then disconnect all RCA cables and re turn on amp if fuses blow then an internal problem exist and you must send it in for repair.

Keep blowing fuse for radio what is colr of constant wire


The constant 12 volt wire is yellow. The accessory ( switched 12 volt wire) is red. The blue (power antenna) and blue/white (remote amp turn on) are also switched 12 volt wires. Make sure that they are not being grounded.

Fuse keeps blowing


This will happen when there is a hot wire touching within the wiring scheme or, it could be merging circuitry within the radios main circuit board, which is mainly heat related and will happen over a long period of usage.

I recommend running a complete wire check form the radio and o the amp and all speakers. check the main radio wire harness for worn or lose connectors. make sure the ground is secure and the hot wire isn't crossing.

In most cases, this will be caused by merging circuits within the radio itself.if this is the case, you will have to replace the radio.

Please rat and have a great weekend:)

My fuses keep blowing and they share a fuse with the interior lights


If you are running an amp it needs to have a dedicated power line with a fuse break this fuse break will make sure that you dont blow the amp do to a power surge. The bigger the wire the better, also make sure ground is good bare metal and clean.

How to wire a kenwood kdc d300


All components on your Amplifier should be labled. Ground Will go to any ground on your Vehicle Ex. A bolt under your trunk floor cover. Power has to be ran from your positive terminal onto your batter and throught the interior of your car to your amps 12v +. The MEMORY TERMINAL IS NEEDED FOR FUNCION! It will be between Ground and POWER or NEXT TO POWER.. This has to be ran to your cd players BLUE MEMORY wire or you can bypass it directly to the POWER, WARNING!!! if you use the bypass method, put a switch that you can pick up from any autozone or such between the two points to shut off the amp, other wise it will run constatly and kill your battery. The two RCA's have to be plugged into the back of your cd player and ran back to your amp and plugged into the Primary Slot (red-white) and finnaly the +.- speaker wires need to be ran to your subwoofers. Once all conected pop in a cd, adjust your cd players bass settings and also adjust your lows, mids, and highs on the amp to fine tune your speakers. IF you are looking to maximize your speaker wattage, you can use the bridge teqnuiqe. But beware you are going to doubble the ammount of power into each speaker. Take both positives, or if only one speaker just the single possitive, and place it into the Right SPEAKER insert on the Amp, and take both negitives and place it into the LEFT SPEAKER insert, and run the wires like normal to each speaker, 1 wire per - one wire per positive, in doing so both speakers run using maximized power usage

Kenwood KAC-X1R and one 12" Kenwood KFC-XW1222D at 1 ohm blow out.Why is that happening?


You may have a high resistance in your positive or negative power supply. with your amp you need to use at least a 2 gauge power cable. Is your fuse blowing? if so then a short circuit to ground may be causing that.
Good luck
