I recently got a new car and moved my system from my old car, I hooked it all up and everything was working fine. Two days later the 20 amp fuse on the power wire blew so I put in another fuse, Now it just cuts the sub off, it will turn on for a second or two then it just cuts off. I turned the gain all the way down then it works but not loud enough for anyone to hear it unless you have the trunk open and your head in the trunk...lol
If anyone can help, Thanks in advance!

Re: Protect Light On Subwoofer Cuts Out
If the amp stays on with the input turned down, I would check or have the sub woofer checked speaker for resistance and impedence to make sure that the speaker is not damaged. If you take off the speaker and turn up the amp and it still cuts off, there is a problem in the amp itself. Most likely a problem in the differental circuit of the amp. Have a pro take a look and bench test the amp. GOO LUCK

No the reson for the amp overheating is do to the OHM ratting that you have the sub if to have the both wired up then just wire one up and that will give you the OHM ratting that your amp is ratted for the way that you might have it is the way that we wire them for coms. where it is on for 30sec and no more. if you would like more help let me know.

Sounds like your original and this sub have bad amps. The amp for the sub is not the same as the amp for the other speakers. The old unit has a dead amp and this new one is on the way out. (Pulling too much current on high bass)
here is a short test you can try, remove the rca audio cable from the amp & connect a diskman or toher audio o/p device that you can hook up with the same rca wires, turn on the amp & see if you have sound. you can also remove the speaker wires from the sub & using multi meter read the ohm's of the sub, most subs are 4 ohm. Hope this help locate your problem
