i just got a new concept cc-d2400a 2400w amp. I also got 0 gauge wire but havent got the fuse for it yet. I ran the 0 gauge ground and power but with no fuse on the power wire because i only wanted to test it out and i thought that the inline fuse on the power wire was just to protect the wire from fire.. The amp has 4 40a fuses on it. I screwed in the 0 gauge ground to the amp and then put in the 0 gauge power and it sparked like normal and then a small amount of smoke came out of the amp and i smelled like something burnt. I was like **** and pulled it out right away it was only in for half a second. I already had 4 gauge with a fuse on it ran so i plugged that into the amp with the 0 gauge ground (does that matter that the ground it bigger than the power). Then turned on the car and the amp came on. The backlight came on, the fan came on, put i got no output to my subs. I know that my subs are wired correctly and i have a decent ground. The green "POW" LED on the side of the amp does not turn on and the when i plug in the remote gain control, that LED does not come on either, but the backlight and the fan does.
SORRY SO LONG BUT CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP!!!
ps - i checked the fuses and they are fine. I am not a expert in car audio but i am not a novice either, i thought that i would plug in the power with with no fuse just to test it out at low volumes, but i guess i didnt know that it would ruin my brand new amp.
