    Amp Troubleshooting

    Every time my car is turned on the fuse gets blown it is a 30 amp fuse.

    What things could cause this?

    I have done hours of troubleshooting myself, I am at a loss.

    Thanks for your help

    Re: Amp Troubleshooting

    Is the fuse in the amp, or inline with the power wire. If it's the power wire, maybe get a bigger fuse. 60 amp?

    Re: Amp Troubleshooting

    Thank you for the quick helpful informative replies. Someone had mentioned using a a 60 amp fuse. I have used a 30 amp fuse for two years it worked fine why would I need to change?

    How can you tell if your power wire is bad?

    What does Ten Chars mean?



    Thanks

    Re: Amp Troubleshooting

    I uprooted all of my wiring. Found that my RCA cables were bad because somehow I managed to put a screw right through the center of the cables.

    My power wire seems fine I checked every inch of the power wire I did not see anything grounding. Now it turns on but the minute the music hits the Amp goes into standby mode.

    Some progress has been made I need more.

    From the product manual it says to check these possible causes

    1. Impedance too low Check speaker impedance
    (Min 2 ohm Stereo, 4 Mono) How do I do this?

    2.Speaker short Check speaker connection
    for short circuit What does a short circuit in a speaker wire look like? How do I perform this step?

    Thanks

    Some forums require you to type more then 3 characters in a post. So if someone answers with 3 characters, they'll type "10 characters" to be able to post a short post. I myself just tap the spacebar a few times to make up for it.

    Re: Amp Troubleshooting

    My success rate s 80%. My amp is now working. I have the left sub working, but the right is not responding. I know that it is not blown, because I did a battery pop test and it was responsive. Logic tells me that the terminals on the box are bad. Would you agree with this? . Now I am just running my amp to the left sub and it still sounds sweet loud deep bass. Any help is greatly appreciated. (what goes around comes around). Thanks

    Re: Amp Troubleshooting

    check the tensil leads on that sub that doesnt work and smell the amp if it smells like burn trash then you have a problem, and also check the connections to the sub and take the back off the amp and check the board for spilt over solder.
