    Post blowing fuses

    Hi my brother fitted a headunit in his car which he bought from one of his pals when the volume is turned up the main fuse for the radio blows not on the radio its self but in the cars fuse box. Does anyone have an ideas, I thought i might have be to do with to low wattage speakers but the more i think it the more i think i'm talking crap and that the speakers would blow first. Cheers

    The headunits obviously drawing to much current at high volumes.

    Is it one of these 4 x 50 watt Alpine headunits?

    The only suggestin I have now then is to take the feed direct from the battery, odd that its blowing. May not fix the problem though

    I've also moved it to car chat as it's not astra related
