    what size fuse?

    ok well last night i thought i had everything hooked up right and i ran the speaker wires into the high input on the amp then from the SAME place i had the speaker wires running from i hooked wires from the speaker level converter to it. then as i was hooking up the ground for the amp it started smoking out of the amp so i hurried up and d/c the wires. i looked at the fuse on the HU which was blown, then today i tried a different HU and hooked it up then the fuse in that one blew too. so i was wondering what size fuse i can run on the batt.? i have two wires with fuse holders on them that im thinking i should run from the batt. then to my + wire on the HU. do you think this is why i keep blowing fuses? i havent looked at the amp fuse yet but i will sometime today. if you have the slightest idea about whats going on please help. thanks.

    Re: what size fuse?

    Fuses are the least of your problems. You seriously damaged something along the electrical lines. My suggestion to you would be to pull everything out, check it over and then re install. You probably fired the amp because you put two different setsof wires into the Hi level input. Clearly, you have some knowledge of car audio, but not enough to complete your system install. You're probably going to want to pay someone to finish it for you before you light your car on fire.




    Don't PM me, I'm not here. Find me on SSA or ROE
    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.
