Default Fosgate amp blowing power wire fuse

Is this A shorted power supply? It blows it at turn on. Sitting idle nothing happens. Power up the switched 12v remote and pop! Thx it's a decade old power 800.2 if this matters. It was playing fine and the output wires got together .

If it doesn't blow the fuse until you turn on the remote line, the power supply FETs are fine.

Pull and test the output stage FETs and power supply rectifiers.
