    I did not know that, mine has been treating me well so far, besides all of the car audio problems haha. Not going to blame any of the fried amps/blown subs on anyone or anything else besides myself though.

    Now that I have an AGM battery + Big 3, hopefully I won't have any problems anymore.

    Put the +/- leads into the Power/Ground inputs and set it to AC volts iirc.
