    Hey guys. :) I have a Rotel RB-03 Amp, the two fuses on the right keep blowing, i've replaced them and they went again, i've tidied up the speaker cables and the fuses have just blown again, when i switch the speakers around, the speakers work whilst plugged into the other channel, so i now know that it's not the speakers, does anyone know what what can cause this to happen? :(

    You probably have failed output transistors in the problem channel, causing the positive and negative rail fuses to keep blowing. Don't replace any more fuses again and power up, as you may cause more extended and costly damage. Take the amp to a repair shop.
