Yeah, powering a car amp properly is pricey. I think the most affordable way is a solid "wall farmer" 12vdc / 500 mA transformer connected full time in parallel with a used/cheap/free car battery. A "wall farmer" is a power supply with the electronics in the plug body. Plus there are a lot of things to check, monitor, and watch to maintain this setup avoid the possibility of a fire, and you're not there, yet. If you adjust the input signal to the JVC active subwoofer, that might fix your problem. If the input signal is too hot, (asking the amp to overdrive itself) it can cause the activation of protection circuitry in the amp.

No. It is likely that one of the drivers has a shorted voice coil and that is way it blows fuses. Using a 12 volt amp to replace it even if the internal amplifier is indeed damaged will be more trouble than it is worth considering that you would need a separate 12 volt power supply. Having it checked and repaired properly would be far less trouble and possibly cheaper.

The cost to properly power that car amp in your house is not worth pursuing. It's better off keeping the original amps quality and specs in your home audio system by replacing it with a new, same model amp.
