Blowing Fuses!

HELP!  In line fuse (2A) on WS 420 BT EQ keeps blowing.  I have attached wiring diagram for my Exile Amps, Dual Battery, EQ and Exile Bluetooth adapter.   

Knowns: 
-2A in line fuse for BT adapter does not blow.  
-2A in line fuse for EQ blows when remote wire for Amps are disconnected.  
-EQ fuse blows when remote wire is on separate switch from Amp remote wire.   
-2A in line fuse for EQ fuse blows when all RCA wires are disconnected from EQ.
-Checked voltages for: Ground-Positive (for EQ), Ground-Remote (for AMPs), Ground-Positive(for switch).  All good.

Thinking EQ is bad since fuse blows in multiple scenarios.

Wiring Diagram - please excuse my drawing skills!

Yeah agree it sounds like the eq is bad.

Thanks Shawn. New one arrives this week. Would you wire it any different way?

I don't think so.  You don't describe where the switch power and ground (assuming it's lit) are coming from, but I'd make sure that those are coming from the same place that your eq power and ground are coming from.  But that's more from a noise perspective than something to prevent blowing fuses.

Shawn, installed a new EQ and, so far so good! Thanks for the help!
