Default BTA10200 - Blows fuse, Request assistance

Hi all,

Need some assistance here, my BTA10200 blows the input fuse.

The story - Installed this unit about 6 months ago. Used for 4 months and all was well. Removed unit, not wire harness about a month ago as more space was needed in the vehicle. Today, place sub back in vehicle and fuse pops.

Work done so far. Pulled harness from rear of vehilce to dash area. Metered all wires looking for a short, found none. Visually inspected harness for rub / bare areas, found none.

Hooking up wires one at a time - Power and ground only = 12v @ sub input, fuse remains good. Hookup speaker harness with prower harnes = fuse remains good. Add on the remote control = fuse remains good. Note, at this point no leds are lit, either on remote or tube. Hook up remote turn on wire (+12v from head unit) Remote led slowly begins to brighten then goes dark = fuse blew. Performed this twice, 2nd time to see if tube led came on, it didn't.

Do you think my tube died in the closet? What are the jumper locations for auto on for the tube? My manual is gray at best on this point.

Thanks in advance for any help.

OK, Little more information on the problem.

Utilizing a bench power supply and no connections to head unit.

Input power connected = fuse good.

Remote turn on (orange) connect to independant 12v = LED on tube slowly glows green, upon reaching bright green, turns RED and fuse pops.

Recon I should pop the 4 screws and see what lies inside the tube?

You definitely have a bad amplifier...

Is it under warranty?
