Question about Car Audio & Video
I have my grounds secure. My amp wired correctly, yet my my amp will blow the fuse that is in the 12 volt wire running from my battery to the amp. I wasted 20 fuses all of witch was 20-30 (size). The amp I have is 1600 watts, and recently I had a sony explode (250 Watt amp) hook up and it served no problem. Is there any certain procedures i need to take to avoid this? Should I just hook 12 gauge wire with no fuse directly to the amp?
The wire from your battery is blowing fuses? and you are using 20-30 A fuses? mine has a 100A fuse..look into getting new wire plus my wire is 4 gauge.., 1600 watts is too powerful for a 12 g wire and a 30 A fuse

A power wire with no fuse will set the car on fire if the wire shorts to ground or if the amplifier draws too much current through it.
A 12g wire is too small for a 1600 watt amplifier.
If the amplifier only blows the fuse after the remote voltage is applied (after the head unit is switched on - volume at minimum setting), the amplifier likely has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.
