They're both made from the same material, are you sure you didn't hook the ground to the 12v on your amp and power wire to your ground on your amp?

You shouldn't try to do an install if you have no clue what you're doing. At least read and attempt to learn before you go out there and actually work on the project.

Yea, these knuckle-heads just don't get it. This is how accidents happen and people get hurt or car fires start or they short out entire electrical systems.

Yeah, even at 12 volts, several thousand amps of potential current from a car battery is nothing to play with.........
