there is either a bare spot in the wire shorting out ( if it blows as soon as hooked up)
or B
fuse is too small and the amp is blowing from trying to pull too much amperage

Either one of these two have a 99.9% chance of being the answer.

did you COMPLETELY take out the wire and visually inspect it that is the only way 2 do it
really thats all it can be
if shit blows upon hookup its got a direct short.. point blank period

if it blows after running the amp for a few mins or whatever.. the fuse is too small.. if the amp is rated for 90amp you need a 90 or 100a fuse

says it sparks as soon as hooked up
so that would lead to bare spot in wire and shorting out
