Help with blown fuse on plate amp
I had an unused speaker that I bought years ago to use in my car. I decided recently to just buy a simple premade box(the type you get for cars) to put the woofer in.
I bought a plate amp and cut out the hole in the box to install it. It worked for a bit, then the fuse gets blown.
Twice now, the fuse on the amp has blown, and when I try to replace the fuse it's immediately blowing the replacement, when powered. I returned it once for a replacement, that worked for a while then the fuse blew again. I have probably run out of warranty now. Considering now making my own box and using a different plate amp.
The woofer is an Infinity Kappa 12.1 from 2001
Sealed box volume is 1ft ported box is 1.75
The box I chose was probably smaller than 1ft. The volume is .88ft I believe. Dimensions are 10x13x15.5 inches according to amazon page, but it's not a square box, there's one angled side.
The plate amp I use was a Yung SD300 300w. I chose it because it had line in and line out jacks so I can connect it to a PC with no subwoofer output.
RCA jacks from the PC to the input on the sub, RCA jack output from the sub to the stereo powered speakers.
So, my question is, why is my fuse blowing after a while of use. I can't tell you how long the thing worked until it quit, because I did not track it. The first time was months, the replacement was much shorter.
Any of my choices of hardware the problem? Is it just bad amps? I'm sure my warranty is up so I can't replace it now.
