alright i got a big problem and i dont know what the problem can be. I hooked up my amp the other day...a Kendwood Excelon. I have 8 gauge wires. I had the power cord from the battery to the amp...that was fine. I had the ground wire installed correctly. The amp power wire from the radio was spliced nicely. The battery in the car is brand new. The AMP just isnt getting power and i have no idea why. If anyone knows anything im missing or doing wrong please help me! Thanks, it's greatly appreciated.
Well the fuse is good i checked every fuse...the one on the power cord and the 2 in the amp. The connection to the battery is pretty damn solid...i have the screw from the battery connector screwing the power cord connector onto the battery very tightly. I tried several different grounding points and still to no success. However, i know it is not the amp because the amp worked in my buddies car no problems...any other suggestions??? I'm really stumped. Thanks.
this may be a verey stupid question but you hooked the wire to battery to positive right, (red). check that nothing is wrong with your power wire. it might be a good idea to upgrade your 8 awg to 4awg wire. sorry about the stupid question
hey p!mp of the escort it is your fuse buy a new one and it should work. I blew my fuse today, i took my amp out, then my power wire hit metal and blam my fuse was blown. luckily i had enough of my life savings to buy a new one.(8.50) im so poor
