recently blew the fuse in my sub (Merak ms-885) having never changed the fuse i brought the old one to Canadian tire (looking for the cheap solution) and they told me a 2a/250vp fuse would do it. tried and went through 4 before giving up, i plug it in and the fuse immediately blows. i was working so i had somone else go to radio shack with the proper info (except by this time the old fuse was thrown out seeing as candian tire garunteed it would work) which was the model name, amperage number from the front and the motherboard where i took the fuse out, and i'm still having the problem(although the fuse was .5 where it should be .6 and the wire inside looked much to thin and it is a "fast acting fuse" if that makes a difference). the fuse originally in it i know was a 1.5a (which is wierd as it says .6) with lcr written on it. can anyone point me in the right direction?

Slo-Mo-Shun? How's THAT going to help?



Oh, sorry.

You know slo-blo-anything is just, well, ripe, right?
