Default PPI tuned off!

Was adj gain in my system and it hit a bass note and my PPI PCX-2200 turned off! Checked 50amp fuse by battery and blowed. Installed a new one and still nothing. wasn't pushing amp hard at all. Volume about 1/4 way and gain at 1/4 on amp. what gives? is there a fuse inside the amp? Thanks.

You need to use a multimeter to confirm that you have B+ and remote voltage at the amp. Place the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp when checking the voltage.

Does the power light come on. If so, is it green or red?

No there is no internal fuse. Take a meter and put the leads on the power and ground plug to check for 12vdc (make sure they are still connected). Also, using the same ground wire on the amp, check the remote lead for 12vdc. Maybe your ground wire isn't tight. Also, did you bridge it? You can't bridge two 4 ohm subs, that will make the amp go into protection.

Default As the sweat dripps off

well as the sweat dripps off my head I found the problem. It was the crimp I had on the power wire to the battery. Is this over kill?, My main power wire from the battery to my junktion box is 2/0 gauge welding cable. them from the juction box everything else is 4 gauge, including the ground wire.
