The fuses are there so the speaker voice coils do not overheat and burn up. You should be very happy that the fuses did their job and saved the speakers from destruction.
You need to turn it down.
The only issue is that you had it turned up too friggin loud. The other stuff you mentioned is nonsense.
Your hearing can be damaged in the long run if you don't.
Be sure that you use the EXACT model of fuse that was in there originally to properly protect the speakers. look at the marking on the original fuse and check the owner's manual.
If the lights were actually dimming, you DO have serious safely issues with your wiring that could cause a fire.This should NEVER happen!
One frequent problem is that expansion and contraction will loosen wire connections over time. check and tighten the wires where they attach to the circuit breakers, and also check and tighten the wires at the wall receptacles.
