Audio Amplifer has Two Fuses

Recently I noticed that the bass response in my wife's car wasn't as strong as it used to be. I finally took a look at it last week and found that her California Profile amplifier no longer turns on. First thing that came to mind was the fuse that was on the amp. It was a 30A fuse and it had blown alright. I bought a pack of new fuses and plugged in a 30A fuse. But it still failed to turn on. And the new fuse was still ok. So that baffled me as I walked away wondering why.

Just last night, it occurred me that the amplifier has two fuses. The other fuses was installed to the battery in the engine bay. I had installed it myself, but had completely forgotten. Sure enough, that 20A fuse was also blown. I replaced both fuses and tried again.

The amplifier still wouldn't turn on. I noticed that one of the new fuses blown immediately, even before I turned on the ignition. Apparently the amplifier had developed a short. I'll have to find the problem. But more likely than not, I'll have to get my wife a new amplifier.
