Question about Visonik V117SX Car Audio Amplifier
I used this amp and subwoofer in my daughter's 1999 Cougar where it worked fine. We just moved it to her 2007 Nissan Altima and hooked it up the same way and the fuse in the amp keeps blowing as soon as the power to the battery is connected. The 12v Power cable to the pattery has power and is heavy duty, the ground is also good (used a meter to check it). The remote turn on power lead has power when the key is turned on and the leads to the sub are also fine. The input is a the high level input from the left rear speaker and grounded to the chassis (just like I did in the Cougar). Interestingly the + and - terminals on the car speaker have continuity??? but not on the Sub Woofer speaker, is this right?. Anyway, I need help understanding why I am blowing fuses, it sounds like a short but everything checks out, Help please!
Ok, always use ground and positive from speakers to the amps +/- . Make sure the amp is not grounded. Some amps are made of metal and will ground itself. When ever any fuses pop, this means that something somewhere got grounded. If using metal srews to mount amp that has a metal casing, chances are you will pop a fuse or two. Be careful ajusting the speaker wires with a metal srewdriver, I've done that alot. "POP"
