TIP OF THE WEEK:

NOISE?  IF YOU ARE USING A AMP TRY A ISOLATOR FOR THE RCA's IT JUST GOES IN-LINE AND USE AS MANY AS YOU HAVE AMPS OR EQ'S

NOTE: YOU WILL HAVE TO GROUND THE AMP SIDE OF THE RCA's TO MAKE THE AMP TURN ON!

AMP TRICKS:

1) YOU NEED A BOARD TO PUT THE AMP ON DO NOT SCREW DIRECT TO THE FLOOR OF ANY CAR OR TRUCK

WATER WILL WICK UP AND DAMAGE THE AMP (NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY)

2) DO NOT FASTEN THE AMP TO THE SUB BOX! THIS WILL DAMAGE THE PCB AND SHAKE LOOSE THE PARTS! (NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY)

3) BUY A BIG ENOUGH AMP SO YOU DO NOT HAVE TO OVER DRIVE THE AMP

DISTORTION WILL KILL SPEAKERS AND FAST!!

NEVER EVER RUN ANY STEREO OVER 2/3 VOLUME

IF IT IS NOT LOUD ENOUGH GET A BIGGER SYSTEM!!
