Amp blowing fuses in hot wire??
I tried helping a boy with his system yesterday, he called me because he was having problems. I looked over his wiring, all looked good. Hooked battery back up, as soon as he turns the cd player on and the amp kicks on the motor bogs atleast 300rpms and then it pops the main fuse in the hot wire. Why is it sucking so much current? I've never heard of an 100amp fuse popping like that unless it was a direct short. He's got a run of 4 guage from battery, I inspected it from battery to amp no bare spots or anything that may cause him problems. It has a solid ground. Any ideas? Something wrong internally in the amp? This is the second amp the company has sent him because of defaults.
The amps a Kole Audio Q1-3000D, it has to be cheap because it doesn't even have fuses in the amp!? Ever heard of such? lol
