Question about PPI DCX-1500.1 Car Audio Amplifier
I am blowing 80 amp fuses when the amp turns on. I have disconnected subs, RCA's, and just have 4 gauge for power, 2 (or dual) 8 gauge for ground, and a remote turn on connected. If I disconnect the remote turn on and connect power and ground, it doesn't blow the fuse. Its not until it recieves a signal from the remote turn on. I have everything turned down on the amp, and like the subject says, nothing looks smoked in the amp.
You need a bigger fuse holder. Your amp is tryin to take more than 80 amps. Mine did the same thing and in theory it needs 180 amps at full power. Upgrade the fuse block and it will stop

Sounds like the amp is fried, most likley in one or both of the output sections. Good luck.
