I have an Audiobahn A2300HCT amp hooked up right now in my 1991 Eagle talon (if that matters)...but my problem is, it wont work...the little indicator light stays on red, it is not hot, as I originally thought may be the problem...then I looked in my manual, and it tells me that it could be a short in the speaker wires, RCA's, or the power wire...I remove the speaker wire to take it out of the equation, I know its not my power, because I have a Hollywood Sound Labs rhv-40s on the same cable (just used dist. blocks) and the RCA's work in that amp...dunno if it matters, but I have a 12" Alpine Type-X sub hooked to it...

Well, sounds like you have an internal damage since it smokes, if it smokes as soon as it kicks on, and blowing the fuse right away, I would have it fixed. But my guess would be something with the ground that is making this happen, or some how your power is grounding on the amp. When ever smoke comes into play, thats never good any way at this point you gotta admitt that thiers internal damage.. blowing fuses can also be cause by over working your amp. along with the sub load at 1 ohm make sure your amp can do the same.. hope this was helpful in some way
My brother just bought an A2300HCX and almost the same thing happen. 1 of the gauges (left side) was no movement. We tryed hooking the amp to the right side, and it works. The Left side turns out was shot, had to get it fixed. So sorry to tell you but sounds like one of the channels has internal damage. I know this isn't the good new you were wanting to hear, but hope it was helpful
Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up normally, the wiring and speakers need to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
