Radio fuse blew, replaced it but amp never turns on... why?
Several things could have happened. The transformer secondary windings could have burnt through their insulation. The outputs blew (most likely) or a trace could have burnt through from heat. In any event when they blow that hard the repair outlook becomes expensive. A fan blowing across the heat sink in the unit would have probably stopped the failure. This new Sony you have will be susceptible to this same thing happening. Sony are known hot runners and needs to have a fan on them especially when they are being ran hard. A small 4” wafer fan like in a computer power supply on a small wall wart (12 volt transformer like on an answering machine) plugged into the switched outlet on the receiver will do wonders! As for the old one, dig a hole and say thank you to the electron gods for 8 good years of service. And using the “B” set of speakers would make no difference; they all come off the same finals.
Hope this help...

Radio lock, how do i unlock it what is the code
I am a Master Installer and have install thousands of amplifiers for 12 yrs and I have never heard of an amp having a radio lock? If your amp dont work just look to see if your fuses are not blown.
No amp that I've heard have a circuit breaker that you can reset. Unless its in the hood of the car. Some people install these cause they dont want to keep buying fuses everytime the amp current is to much but they are usually big in size and not practical to make in a amp. Just look at your circuit breakers in your house they are huge boxes.
If amp is already connected in your car. Go to the hood and find the large fuse connected to your battery. You will see an aftermarket 4guage to 8 guage thick power cable usually blue or red. Inline with it is a tubular fuse holder or a big rectangular fuse holder. Replace the fuse inside it no matter if it still looks good because sometimes internally the connection got bad you can test it with a multi-meter for continuaty. The amp should work again.
Sorry for the long answer but your question has very little info. You have a pic of a amp and your talking about a radio lock. Its possible your having problems with a radio code? specify the radio aftermarket or model & yr of the car please next time.

No knowledge of how to hook two subs which are the
yor subs have dual 6 ohm voice coils from the sound of it-your amp is rated at 650 watts rms at a 1ohm load. The best you can do with the equipment you have is to wire ALL the coils of your subs in parallel and that will give you a 1.5 ohm load for the amp.It should knock the hell outta them with 300 watts on each sub - good luck
