another 'my amp fuses keep blowing'
firstly im new here so hello everyone
as the title states i have a problem
firstly my set up
0guage from batt to 80a fuse to 10a fuse to head unit and a 2guage to a distro block powering 3 amps (through 4 guage wire)
1 4 channel and 2 2 channels
then 4 guage to another distro then 2guage to a hole that used to house a clip for the trim in the side of the boot (metal is thin, maybe this is the problem?).
the remote from the HU goes into a 2 channel then piggybacks from there to the other 2 amps.
i put in 6 new speakers into the car (well 4 and a set of splits)
and my 4 channel to run them (the 2 channels are not connected to the subs right now because the boxes are out being carpeted and ported but the amps still power up)
anyways today i turned the system on to start tuneing.
played some music and slowly increased volume to hear for distortion (amps gains were at 0 no boosting in either head unit or the amp and high passes were set at about 100htz)
i got fairly high (say 80-90% percent, didnt check because i quickly turned down the volume because of what happenend)
everything was working fine, then one of the 15a fuses in the 4 channel blew so i quickly turned down the volume and sound came back on so i started to increase again even slower and it cut out earlyer as t he other 2 15a fuses blew.
i figured i just went too high for the amp so i replaced (had a slight spark as i put in the 1st fuse even though the amp was off due to head unit being off)
and powered up. and the protection was on straight away. checked fuses and theyre all blown.
i decided there must have been a short somewhere so i disconnected the speakers and rcas . disconnected the power from the amp. replaced fuses then reconnected the power ground and remote to the amp.
powred up and still no volume. checked fuses and again they were blown. (this is the most amount of fuses ive blown in my life.
so im pretty stumped now
i thought it might be an impedence issue but wihout the speakers connected then that shouldnt be an issue.
(which brings up a 2nd question
the speakers are as follows
2 6 inch JL audio splits (on the box says 4 ohms so i assume this includes both the tweeter and the woofer) in front doors
2 alpine 2 way type S (4ohms) also in front doors. (these are connected in parallel to the JL crossover. so thats channel 1 from amp into jl crossover then from there to the alpines. the outputs on the xovers go to the appropriate woofer and tweeter)
then the rear speakers are connected directly to the rear channels of the amp
can anyone please help me.
tomorrow ill get a new ground and connect the remote directly to the 4 channel and see what happens but id rather get more info before blowing my last 3 fuses and the risk of more damage to my amp.
