    My Sub amp keeps blowing fuses???

    Hi, I have a 600w kenwood 2ch amp and it keeps blowing fuses. It was working fine in my other car but since I have taken it out power goes through it, and in seconds it fries the fuses. It's realy strange. I have tried it in both my friends truck and in my car and have blown about 8 fuses. Has any one had anything like this happen to them? and if so, what fixed the problem?

    What ohm load are you running on the amp? You might be running it too low.

    I have it bridged at 2ohms, but I don't think it's that because I can't even get the power on without blowing fuses

    What size fuse is it? What gauge power do you have? I doubt the amp is stable at 2ohm bridged. What model Kenwood is it?
