ghead First I tried splicing the line level outputs from my '94 325is stock Alpine3 hu to low level rca jacks for a new Kenwood amp. It didnt work so I bought the converters and it works for about a minute then blows the 30amp fuse on my amp. The amp gets very hot. Is it bad or maybe and impedence issue with the factory speakers? I have the front tweet, mid, and low (kicks) paralleled on each side and installed apair of 6x9 3 ways the rear. No subs install yet.

Try just hooking one pair at a time to see if the amp continues to get hot, if it does with only one pair (and both speakers are good), you may have a problem with the amp. If not, you may have too many speakers hooked to one channel. Give that a try and lemme know...
