    Most definately do not turn on any unnecessary accessories like A/C, that just drains your electrical system, not help it flow more.

    Remove your fuses when burping. The are not needed for short burps but be sure to put them back in or you will fry your amp.......

    Re: Preparing for a Comp

    DONT turn or demo your stereo before the comp because it will drain the battery.

    Take a charger with you to the show and inbetween charge it.

    It is a db drag. The guy who is the manager of the store that is putting it on said it was a db drag mic. But he also has his head up his @ss so who knows.
