  1. I bought a 150amp fuse from a local audio shop, it’s a stinger 150. Put it in and everything works again, but I definitely need to see how much power my amp is drawing because I talked to the guy that’s been doing car audio for almost 40 years, and he said that the 100amp should have been just fine, so there had to be something else going on.
  2. Bestbuy has kicker fuses, and they sell them in a 2 pack. They currently have the 200amp fuse 2 pack in stock at the one near me. I’m trying to do this all at a budget, I spent $350 on the sub, amp and wire kit. I don’t have the money for the DD-1. Wish I did because I would have bought it and anything else that would help.
  3. I get off of work at 5 and all the car audio shops near my work and home close at 5 aswell. I’ll try to leave early and get one. I’d like to check this issue as soon as possible, since I installed the system yesterday, and I’m having issues less than 24 hours after.
  4. On Skars website they say that all you need for the amp is an 80amp fuse, but the 4 gauge kit comes with a 100amp. If bestbuy has a 150amp in store I’ll get that, but I don’t have too many options right now
  5. The amp was hooked up, before the battery was connected again. Amp hasn’t moved from the mounting location. The power light was on before I shut car off, after the sub stopped playing. I know enough about car audio to not do something stupid, or at least I think, but I do take all necessary precautions.
  6. I have an aftermarket head unit and I’m going to buy a new fuse. I’m just hoping the amp still works because I doubt Skar will warranty it. I don’t have the money to get a new amp, so if the amp is dead, I guess I’ll probably never post on here again.
  7. So I have a Skar SDR-1X12D2 in a loaded enclosure hooked up to a RP-800.1D using the Skar 4 Gauge amp kit, with a 100amp in-line Fuse. I played it for about 30 minutes, gain turned all the way down, no LPF, no Subsonic or Bass EQ, and bass knob about a quarter of a turn (havent gotten it tuned yet). The sub stopped playing, and amp still had power. After a couple of hours I disconnected my battery, unhooked the amp and opened it up to see if it was messed up, looked fine so I put the cover back on and went and hooked it up again. Went to connect my battery again, and the fuse popped. I have a

    Have a RP-800.1D and only ran it for about 30 mins, everything turned all the way down, bass knob not even a quarter turn, and amp stopped playing. It looks burnt. But I’m kinda new, any help?
  9. No, I'm not. I meant head unit under powering the speakers and the 800.1 under powering the sub. The head unit is rated for 200.4 so 50rms per speaker and all the speakers are 120rms. Skar says that the 800.1 is perfect for the 12" SDR 1200w (600rms). Edit: Sorry for the late replies, I work 7-5 and basically relax the rest of the time.
  10. Well, I found a Skar Audio package on amazon with a 12” SDR sub in a loaded ported enclosure, RP 800.1D (comes with bass control knob), and Skar audio 4 Gauge install kit. People say that the install kit isn’t actually 4 Gauge, but closer to 8. I’m also probably going to get a set of Pioneer TS-A1676S 6.5” and a set of TS-A6960F 6”x9” speakers. Aswell as 10sqft of 80mil sound deadening for my doors. Only question I have is, if my amp under powers my speakers and sub, is that a good thing? I would imagine the speakers and sub not performing at or above max power would be the way to go, for dura
  11. Hey, I'm pretty new to car audio. I used to have a 1999 Toyota Camry. I had 2 Kicker CompC 12's on a JBL 1500 (don't remember model) and that was about it. I didn't have a capacitor, and I didn't upgrade my alternator or battery, and my lights would just about shut off when the bass hit. I would like to do something to my new daily, a 2008 Toyota Corolla, something that would give me decent bass, without upgrading the alternator or battery. I don't want to run a capacitor since I've been hearing a lot of mixed reviews about them. I've been looking at a Skar Audio 12 kit on amazon, but I woul
  12. So I plan on setting this up in my new daily. 2 Kicker CompR 12" subs in the Kicker Ported Enclosure Kicker CX1200.1 Mono Block D Class Kicker CK4 4 Gauge Amp Kit Stinger Select SSCAP5M 5 Farad Capacitor What are y'all's thoughts? It's kind of a budget build, just because I don't want to dump a ton of money into a car I might not keep for too long.
