Question about Car Amplifiers
Amp keeps blowing fuses when played at high vol. I have it bridged with three 10"speakers. it doesn't do it right away, it does it after a few minutes
Is it blowing the three 30 amp on-board fuses?
To have 3 speakers bridged, each speaker must have at least a 12 ohm impedance (assuming that all speakers are connected in parallel). If you're running a load lower than 4 ohms (mono), the amp will likely fail.
The fuses don't blow right away because they are cold at first. As they heat up, they can blow more easily (even though the current draw hasn't increased).
