sounds like it might be a dead short to earth.... check all your connections including where the power goes into the amp... also if you can, feel the wires for heat.

Have you checked the earth wire?Power wire is only one half of it, without a proper ground, you should expect problems as such..Your grounding wire and point, should be your next step on your trouble shooting list.

I'll say faulty amp then :)

Models numbers of the equipment will help us diagnose.
