Spent the entire day installing my speakers in my car and hooking up the amp and stuff.. Well once i had it all finished the amp wasn't receiving power and the green light wasn't coming on. So what are some things i should check to get this fixed?

(i'm pretty sure my ground is good, but i may try some different places if nothing else works.)

1. Check REM Cable: Make sure it is connected to a "Switched" power supply.

2. Check Inline & Amplifier Fuses: Make sure no fuses have blown or are damaged.

3. Check Power Cable: Make sure all connections are tight and secure and that there are no exposed wires.

4. Check Negative Cable: Make sure it has a solid connection to bare metal.

Should be easy to figure out with a DMM and a few minutes...

Username says all. By the way if you're going to keep doing installs I suggest you buy either a digital multi meter or at the least, a test light
