I just got all my parts to install my new system; 12" L7, Power Acoustiks pa2-1600w (each VC on its own channel), pioneer 4600 HU, pioneer speakers all around. I installed my HU and speakers 2 days ago and everythign was running fine. I installed my amp and sub last night, wired everything up, installed fuse last, turned key to Acc. radio was good but i looked at my amp and the green power light wasn't on (not red either just not on). I turned the key to start the car and NOTHING. The battery like instantaneously died. This is my first amp/sub install, installed numerous pairs of speakers and HU's though.
I read over all my info and checked the wiring and everything seemed to be right; fused 4awg power cable to (+) terminal, fuse 16" from battery, ground on clean metal in trunk, less than 3 ft form amp. I'm stumped and a little worried!???????????
Disconnected power wire from amp and used a jump starter to start my car (BTW 97 Nissan Altima)
