voltage problem...please help
Today I was kinda bored so I decided to test the voltage in my car. I got my DMM and popped my trunk put the DMM leads on my kinetik 2400 and started my car.....the DMM read 12 somethin then gradually movied up to 13.1...then it dropped just a little bit I think bc my car idled down after it was runnin for a little bit. Then I played just a 47 hz tone on a pretty low level and the voltage was stayin steady at 12.70.
I turned the bass off and the voltage charged back up a tad....but not even back up to 13 volts, 12.90 i believe. Then I turned my car off and the voltage quickly started dropping. After about 5 minutes of the car being off the voltage read 12.3. I popped my hood and checked to see what the voltage read with the battery under the hood and it was the same.
I have done the big 3 in 0 guage and have am running all 0 guage for batts and amps.
