hey, im running, two amps and a sub for each amp.

They are small, only 210watts each...to a 10inch sub.

Anywayz, the fuse keeps on blowing, like between my amps and the
battery. And i keep on having to replace it.

What can i do?

I could get a circuit breaker right? But thats gonna cost me another like 30 bucks or whatever.
Is there anyway of saving the fuse from going?

Thanks

You either are drawing more than your fuse or something is shorting out. A fuse is protection so find the source. What size fuse are you using? What amps and at what load are they running. Do the amps have fuses built on them? What size if yes.

If they keep blowin - youll end up paying the cost for a curcuit breaker get a BREAKER! I have the jl 1000.1 and a fuse blew every week! after putting in the breaker NO PROBLEMS ever since! :wink:

I found no info on a 602 amp on that site. The 702 is listed as a recommended fuse of 20 amps, which means 2 of them would require a max of 1 40 or 50 amp fuse at the battery and each should have a 20 amp fuse at a dist fuse block in the rear of the vehicle. I am assuming that you did a no no, by putting only 1 Main fuse in and that means that each amp is opens to draw up to the 60 amps you fused it at. You may have a bad amp that is causing the fuse issue.
