    Holy hell. Best Buy install prices.

    Dayyum, No wonder shops are closing down fast, only an idiot would pay that kind of money. Especially when you start talking to them and you realize they know less than you. Had one tell me the other day the "big 3" was a waste of money. They charge big bucks for that kind of knowledge.

    what the hell is going on

    Battery grounds are not bad as that is the real ground on the car. If you ground it to the chassis it goes to the negative on the battery anyway. Check your sub wiring. Also check for a tiny strand from your positive and negative on the amp to be touching. Just trace all your wires and check for snug. Edit: Try taking out the cap like was mentioned before. Plus there is nothing wrong with a short chassis ground or grounding to the battery. If all else fails do a short ground to the chassis. Who knows... Grounds cause a lot of problems.
  7. Yep it's possible. I've beaten some set ups that were a lot louder than me on paper. And had some systems I laughed at give me quite a scare ;p

    Wtf charging help anyone?

    Well crap! I was just about to buy this http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Displayitem.taf?itemnumber=95535 But if they don't charge very well....
  10. I've found small boxes increase power handling. I go by if the amp is to small for the subs I like a big box. To much power I like a small box.
  11. Fuse after your under-hood battery, Before your first trunk battery and after your last trunk battery. Something happens to your long run you will be glad you did it that way. As you have juice going in both directions.
