Hifonics amp keeps blowing the main fuse

I have a Hifonics bxi 1206d amp and everytime i hook it up it blows the main fuse. I have tried it in both my truck and my friends and it does the same thing. I have checked and rechecked all the wiring to make sure there are no loose ends. How can I check the amp to see if there is a short in it?

Make sure you have your negative in the ground input on the amp and the postive in the 12volt input.....if by accedient you mix the two everytime you replace the fuse it will bloooooooow

What do i do when its telling me that its protected.


Over current protection turns on when the amp draws more current than normal. It turns on so it doesn't catch on fire. Your amp has a fault, most likely in the output stages. These power transistors consume the most current and if they blow short then that will cause it to go into protection. If it is under warranty take it back, if not have someone in your area try to repair it. What load were you running anyway?

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!

Power good no green light no subs


Make sure you got a good ground. do not ground on painted surfaces! If you got power from battery, check the remote wire running to cd player. Hook up remote blue wire with the one for cd player. If you still have a problem and the fuse is good, then the amp is fried

No sound in my Hifonics Brutus BXi 1206D amp


Have you confirmed that you have a good signal feeding the amp?

Have you confirmed that the speakers are in good working order and don't have any breaks in the wiring?

My amp turns on then off while it slowly blows the fuse out


If I were a guessing man, I'd guess that you had your amp hooked up in a bridged configuration. And also that you connected your two speakers in parallel (plus to plus and minus to minus). And if I were to further guess, I'd guess that you have a blown amp now because of what I mentioned above. Sounds like you need to spend some quality time with your favorite electronic repair shop. Good luck.
