The first diagram look o.k to me. I usually don't fuse the power wire for the amp at the back of the trunk. I never really had amp blowing up as yet.. LOl...

yea, not really needed, the only reason to do so is more for the sake of the battery, the fuse would stop the wire from melting and causing a fire

So u don't need to run a negative from the front to the back ? Only if u have a big build what's consider a big built

It's not necessary in any situation, but it is helpful in any situation; the negative run improves the overall voltage efficiency for the amplifier.


Current Build:

1999 Tahoe #ComingSoon

Previous Build(s):

Crossfire Magnum

5k Pontiac G6 GT

If you have the extra holder, use it as extra insurance depending on your system layout. A friend burned his car down in the parking lot in High School because he didnt have a fuse at all. <_< He had his system running for 2 days, I have done single and dual fuses depending on the install. Under 1k watts I'll go solo, but anything over that and I will double up.

My truck is doubled up as 2 R500-1's are on 2 CVR 15's, and a MA M598i with a Punch 40i finishing out the system.

Big 3 in front, 2/0 guage front to rear to distro. 0/0 guage in the back several 150amp fuses


Does this smell funny to you? Its your sister :roflmao:

Well I ran one positive and one ground to the back I'm running a Rockford T4000 and I was wondering if it would be better if I just made both of those runs positive ?
