    Re: running amp from cigarette lighter

    It works because you are supplying power to an amp, which is then powering your subs.

    I am not here to bash your "equipment"... I am bashing your "install".

    Re: running amp from cigarette lighter

    You have two 8 amp Batts running of your cigarette lighter. Cigarette lighters are fused at what 10 amps? Sounds like you may be pushing a ear rapin' 100 Watts of powa!

    And in your words.... "it slams!" Erma gerd
