    Re: big 3 help

    try 1/0 to your amp and ground. when u did the big 3 did u sand down the grounds? And yea u might need to change the front battery. I had a durlast gold its a great battery for starting your car not for music. look for a nice battery for up front oh yea fords **** for electrical ,i had a escort and i got dimming pretty much my lights were flashing i was running the stuff in my sig at that time

    Re: big 3 help

    get a better bat up front and possibly another in back.. and also like said before.. did you make sure the wires were touching metal.. not paint..

    Re: big 3 help

    i wanted to add somthing the big 3 is not a fix to all dimming issues. see it helps raise your volts at idle but onces u start playin music that sh its gona draw any ways. i was at 14.8 i even seen a 14.9 but onces i had some music on and i would see 12.0 at times. look for a battery for up front.

    Re: big 3 help

    what series is your batt. 58 or somthing right? I would look for a battery to fit up front u have a small alt and to run 2 batts for what 1200 rms or so its not worth it u should be able to run close to full tilt with big 3 ,1/0 for amp and ground and just one battery for up front with little to no dimming.I said this befor Fords **** for electrical bro there not good.

    see i had that issue for my car there is no yellow top that made for my car. there is a red top. go to auto zone. com and go to the battery section put your car info and it will tell u the series u need. And bam u got it.

    yea u cant try to put a big as wire in to that amp ahahha. if u have block that takes in zero ga and lets out zero or 4 ga or 2 ga then your set u can try 4 ga to that amp if it fits in there. http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...?prodID=KNF-23
