    From what I understand you should not disconnect the ground with the RCA still plugged in. The RCA can serve as a grounding point back to the deck if the amp still has power from the positive lead. What can happen, in rare cases, is the input stage on the amp can fry. Its rare but I've seen it.

    We're taling about removing the ground (negative) wire from the battery itself. When that's off there's no path for any current to return through.

    could i still take the negative off the chassis without taking off the negative battery terminal, and without removing the rca's?

    That's not recommended unless you remove the + first from the amp. Why can't you just pull the fuse? Then there'd be no worries.

    OK. Umm.... The + wire that feeds your amp(s) should come off the battery and within a foot or so of the battery there should be a rectangular plastic thingie that's a fuse holder. You just open the cover of the fuse holder, grab the fuse, and yoink. It'll be a blade type fuse (usually) with two flat prongs sticking out the bottom. When you're done fussing with wires just plug it back in and close the cover.

    That's it, bro.

    sorry, I should've specified. I know what a fuse holder, fuse, etc. all that is, lol. I just never knew how to actually take the fuse out of the holder
