Water Dog I believe that you were refering to burnt out light bulbs (instead of fuses) in your original post. High current draw from tieing in to another circuit would definitely blow fuses, but shouldn't burn out bulbs. If it's just the two bulbs that have burnt out recently, and after replacing them there haven't been other issues, I would guess they were just ready to die and needed replacing. I doubt that it has anything to do with your different speaker.

I will check on that, but the thing is I have always had this amp on the same setting and everything. The only thing I did was unplug my 10 inch sub and throw in a 12 inch. I'm taking it to my mechanic today just to get a quick fix

AbsolutCaptain And yes a 12" will pull more watts

AbsolutCaptain Did you connect the amp directly to the battery? Or did you tap into another connection? Any chance you accidentally loosed up a ground wire? How many watts is the amp?

Lights keep going out!

My lights keep burning out! First my front right turn signal and then my back right tail light. They have never done this, but I bought a new 12 inch subwoofer and now they burn out. Is it coincidence? Or could my sub somehow burn them out? I'm not an electronics expert. And also I'v always had a 10 inch subwoofer but I upgraded to a 12, could that pull power or something?
