Question about Power Acoustik Car Audio & Video
When i hook it up it will turn on then blow all 3 fuses and sum times it will stay on but where my ground wire is hooked to the car it got cerry red and the bass was goin in and out
Check for any short circuit with wiring of the amp. If there is no such fault, surely your amp need service. It has some internal shorted components. This work is really a skilled one, and can only be done by any experienced service personal only. OK.

SOURCE: blowing fues
When you put two 4 ohm speakers together in parallel you are making a 2 ohm speaker load. (If they are dual voice coil speakers then it is a one ohm speaker load.) And when you then bridge the two output channels together, then your 2 ohm load will act as a ONE (1) ohm load to each channel since they both share the load. This is not a good thing for an amp that is most happy with a four ohm load. It will fry your amp. You are lucky if it is only blowing fuses. Or else you have already blown the amp and now it doesn't matter what the speaker load is. Try turning the amp on with NO speaker attached and if it still blows fuses then you have a amp in need of repair. Good luck.

SOURCE: Keep Blowing Fuses
Sounds like the amp is shorting somehow. You are obviously shorting out somewhere between the battery and the amp. Are you sure you grounding location is a good one? is the fuse blowing only when you turn the stereo on? Something is not hooked up correctly.
If the fuse at the battery is blowing then it's a short.
If the fuse on the amp is blowing then its probably a bad amp.

SOURCE: car amp blows 12 volt wire fuse
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

SOURCE: amp cutting out when bass hits
make sure that all the connections to the power supply are tight. The protection circuit is doing this so that your amp do not burn up. The size of your amp also demand heavy wiring. Make sure you used the recommended size. Also you need to make sure that the battery and the alternator can keep up with its large demand. You may need an extra battery too. I know a single battery can deliver a lot of current, but a powerfull amp demands the current really fast, when the bass hits. You can use a large damping capacitor, they are extremely big, or you can add another battery. All these will also give your amp more thump, and make it operate at full efficiency. meaning even louder! If these do not solve the cutting out issue, you may have to turn down the gain down slightly. Every type of music do not deliver same amount of bass, hip hop music, and rap would require you to trim down the gain some. Bass is delivered at its best in moderation, too much and you end up with a rattle rather than solid bass. I have a 4,000 watts amp at home, I don't use it in my car. I got it rigged up as a house stereo. I bought it for a 100 bucks broken, and fixed it. I have worked with hundreds of car amps a before in a electronic shops, I also design small amps once in a while. I myself love those loud gadgets. Well hope it has been helfull. Goodluck.
