Question about Kenwood KAC-7251 Car Audio Amplifier
When i turn on my car stereo and my amp comes on, it blows my fuses,the on under the hood & the ones on the amp.
My first adivse is to check to make sure there are no power to ground shorts or any shorts for that matter. Then, a possibility would be if you have too small of fuses. Make sure you put the correct fuses in in amp according to the manufacturer's specs and the fuse under the hood should be size of your fuses on your amp added up plus a little extra. Meaning if you have 2 25A fuses on your amp then you probably want around a 60A. What ever you do don't put bigger fuses in the amp than the manufacturer specifies or you will cause damage if something gets shorted. Another possibility is that you could have the speaker impedence too low and the amp isn't stable at the impedence you have it at. I hope I could help. Let me know if you need me to specify more. Good luck

If your speakers are wired for an impedance below 4 ohms mono or 2 ohms stereo, that would make it shut off. If you have a speaker wire shorted to ground, it would also cause the amp to go into protection.
If the speakers are not the problem, it may be shutting down because the voltage at the amp is dropping too low.
