My amp keeps blowing fuses for some odd reason. THe gain is only half way up and all the connections are good. Any suggestions?

I assume you mean the fuse on the amp itself is blowing?

I've had this happen to me once. It turned out that the fuse between the battery and the amp on the main power wire (which should only be located a few inches from the battery-you do have one of these I hope) was bad. I replaced that fuse and everything was fine. So I would suggest checking that. Hope this helped.

It maybe that you have a bad ground, or that your ground wire is too long. Also how are you wiring the subs (assuming that this amp is just for your subs) are you running them in stereo or are you bridging the amp? :eek: :D

oh yea, the subs are not bridged, the amp can't handle theses subs bridged.

I checked your amp, I figure its either a XM-1902GX or a XM-1502SX. They are basically the same with just a little different features. Your 4awg is fine for that amp.

What brand are your subs and whats the ohm rating? How are your subs wired, in series or in prallel? Are the subs DVC? Improper sub wiring could be the culprit.

Chances are its the amp itself.
