If you disconnected the amp from the power wires - and there was nothing conncted to power wires - and they werent touching anything including each other - and the fuse still blew then there is a short in the positive (+) wire. make sure you are connecting the wire with the fuse to a proper, switched connection and make sure you use a good clean spot on the car body to ground your amp.

If you meant that you disconnected the speaker wires from the amp then you should try to disconnect the amp from power and source and then that will show if you have blown the amp.

If you give me more specifics I can help you more if you need

good luck

Could be the internal fuse on the amp or the fuse doesnt have enough for the amp.

As soon I turn on the car the fuses on the amp go out !!! What am I dealing with here


Disconnect the remote wire from the amp and bridge a wire to the remote port from the positive... if the fuse doesn't blow its most likely a corrupt remote wire from the head deck or the wrong wire...If it still blows when bridged, open up your amp and check the inside terminal look for thin strands of old wire crossing the +/- as its common in used amps...

Amp on but no sound


Double check all of your fuses and make sure they are the corrects AMP. Other than that it sounds like the speaker wires came loose somewhere along the line. check on the subs and behind the deck. hope this helps

I was using bridge on a Rockford P300 and blew my cheap speakers but now my bridge doesnt work. Bought new speakers and want to run in bridge mode is there a fuse inside maybe or did I blow it up?


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Your amp is clipping.
No internal fuses. Your mosfets are toast. A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. using-bridge-rockford-p300-blew-peeu4x5nsxvd53n2rwetiqa4-3-0.jpg

your inline fuse wouldn't blow if there was just something wrong with the amp. the amp fuse would blow if that was the case. something is faulty with your wiring. you probably have the wires touching somewhere or are in the wrong terminals at the amp or on the wrong battery terminal. or your power wire is grounding out somewhere. its not the amp. its your wiring

The Red & Black wires connected to my AMP touched


You blew the inline fuse on the AMP power wire. If it was not fused "inline" you may have blown a fuse internal to the amp. Look on the amp(or consult the manual) for the location of fuses "internal" to the amp.

Keep blowing fuse under hood when i put power wire in to amp


disconnect the negative battery terminal, replace the fuse with all the wires hooked up to the amp and reconnect the battery terminal, that way the initial surge of power goes through the negative terminal and not your inline fuse. That should solve your problem.

My 800 watt kenwood


Sounds like you shorted out the main power wire somewhere and killed the amp. Is the amp on the fuse intact or blown? Do you have 12 volts at the amp? check you connections and see if it helps.
