Default 03 conv v6 mach sound, indash 6-disc, parasitic drain

Hey guys newbie here first post! Been trolling around but I'm stumped.

checked my system and it has a drain of 9.9 amps. Found source to be FUSE 9 ,(rear stereo amplifiers). Checked amp's when disconnecting both amplifiers and amp shot up to like 19.00 amps. Can someone point me in the right direction. Thanks!

First thought would be a bad amp, if the speakers work without it plugged in just leave it unplugged and the drain should be gone.
If not then you will have to get a new amp to use your back speakers. most people don't notice back speakers since they are mostly just filler sound, but if you want them you could always go aftermarket and get a new amp and speakers.

Why would the amps surge up when I disconnect the back amps? Seems weird to me that the amps would get higher but when plugged in they are lower. Thanks
