Please help amp blowing fuses like crazy

My amp was working fine then one day stopped working. Finally I checked the fuses on the amp and they were blown. popped two more in and bam blown right away. I took the sub out and replaced the fuses and amp stays on no problem. But once I hookup the sub again bam fuses blow right away.

Anybody have any idea what could be going wrong?
please help as i need bass in my life

Sounds like a short in your wiring or in the sub. First, try connecting another speaker to the amp. If this works, you've identified your problem (the sub). If the amp still blows fuses, try new wiring. If none of these work, the amp may be the problem.

Make sure that your positive and negative wiring at the sub and the amp are isolated from each other.

Good luck with solving your problem.
