well my friend recently gave me an old Audiobahn A2300HCT, i hooked it up to a 10" Alpine Type x sub that was wired to 2 ohms since i didnt want to mess up the sub i wired it to a single channel on the sub that puts out 600w rms instead of the 1200w rms at 2 ohms when bridged.
anyway i hooked everything up and it was working ok i had the volume pretty low since it was late, I drove off so i could test out the sub w/o bothering my neighbors and i notice the sub is not kicking anymore. I pop the trunk and see that the amp is off so i check the 40 amp fuses on the side and all 4 were blown, now i cant recall if it stopped working before i or as i raised the volume since there was no bass in the part of the song i was on when i raised the volume.
i went to walmart because i was all out of 40 amp fuses but they also did not have any and all the autopart stores are closed now so i tried to see if i could try a 30 amp fuse, (now i wasnt sure if i should have removed power from the amp or not) i tried to put the fuse in and it sparked i figured it would do that since it had power but it sparked again about 3 more times before i gave up trying to put the fuse in and i notice the tip of the fuse was melted but the fuse itself was not blown.
maybe the amp is bad i dont know but some help would be awesome cause i want some bass! thanks
