    I know it's an out dated problem, but check to make sure the remote wire hasn't grounded it's self, some how.

    I wouldnt think it would blow 2 x 25A fuses because the remote wire is grounded. You will blow the remote output of the head-unit/head-unit fuse first as its only 10-15A. If the remote wire is connected to accessories you'd blow the accessories fuse first (also 10-15A).

    Sorry to jump onto that suggestion ;)

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I took it into the warranty joint and they kept it for 3 weeks replaced a bunch of parts in it and gave it back. Been working fine ever since.


    dakman - my amp is wired up using the high input into the amp. I don't get any engine noise etc through the speakers. It suits me fine.

    You are right in theory, but it happen to me last week with a customers car. The Kicker amp blew two 25A fuses, and blew the mosfets. So to cut a long story short, after further analizing with the help from a mate of mine from Car Audio Excellence, it turned out to be the remote wire grounding it's self. The remote wire was replaced and a loan amplifier was offered to the customer. I was lucky that it did'nt blow the remote output, as it was a brand new Alpine CDA-9887 h/u worth $699.

    I learnt a very valuable lesson that day. When installing, don't rely on the work of a previous installer! LOL
