For this amp, 10 gauge would be large enough. Install a 30 amp fuse in series with the 10g wire where it connects to the battery.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Why won't truck stay running. Altenator bench tested good, but running test was low amps. Starter tested bad and replaced as well as corroded negative battery cable.


Your bad cable may have prevented the battery from being charged up good. Put a battery charger on it, or replace it if over 4 years old.

So the problem is it starts and then dies? How many amps did the alternator show? Was it enough to run all power circuits and charge the battery as well? That could be a concern. It is possible you have a bad ignition switch, but first check the fuse for the gauges in the instrument panel fuse block-it may be labeled "gauges" or "meter". The fuse should get power with key on, and then power is sent to the gauges on the dash. Without a voltmeter to test for power coming out of the switch, it's kind of a guessing game. If power is not getting to the gauges, it may also not be going elsewhere out of the switch.

Any issue with a security or theft alarm light staying on? That would disable the engine from running. Post back with year, make, model, and engine size. Maybe I could look at a wiring diagram for further help.

Performance teqneck 3000 watts cut out when volume turn up


needs more power, or how your wired impedance is too low.

1.upgrade your power cable
2.buy a second battery not a capacitor
3. run power cable to the second battery from the + of the from battery the battery from the front
4. run at minimum of 4 gauge power wire
5. run 4 gauge wire from the alt to the main battery
6 run 4 gauge from the negative of the battery to the ground chassis
7. run 4 gauge + to the rear battery
8 run 4 gauge ground near your amp
9. turn down the gain and bass boost, set it a moderate level where you wont hear distortion
10. set the bass level from your stereo deck at a moderate level also.

find your impedance.
look at your woofers and find have a number like 1,2,4 ohm.
find out what your amplifier minimum needs to operate in OHM's.
look here.

93 ford ranger. the volt, temp and fuel gauges do not work. fuse is fine. should gauges be replaced or can they be tested? also, the speedometer is off. i have put on the proper tire size, replaced the...


See if you are getting power to your gauges. You could also check continuity between the fuse and the wires/pins into the gauges. If you know your getting power to the fuse check those things. If your not getting power to your fuses for these items work back from there. If you are getting power to the fuses and power to the gauges you probably have a bad ground in that circuit. Hope this helps.

Jensen CD-510K hooking a 200 watt amp to it.Need to know what wires need to use to hook it up


rca cables for audio and a remote wire. just plug the rca cables into the plugs in the back of the deck and the remote wire (i suggest buying a thicker (speaker wire size) gauge wire since it allows you to get more power out of the amp) to the blue remote wire coming from the deck. you will also need an 8 gauge power wire (12 inches to 12 feet depending on where the battery and amp are) and an 8 gauge ground wire (no longer than 24 inches).

What type of "Gauge" wires should I be using for the Kicker ZR600 AMP (Power cable, ground, Speaker wire)?


Hi there,

The lower the gauge, the thicker the wire.
You want multi-strand, not solid. This has better conductivity and less resistance over distance.

10 to 8 gauge will be able to handle anything that particular amp needs.

Remember an in-line fuse on the power cable as close to the battery as possible.

The speaker wire doesn't really need to be anything special

Sound good? Pun intended

Best regards
Mike

The power cord over heats and burns through the direct wire strain relief.


it will only over heat if the cable is of insufficient ampage. too much electrical current running thru a too-thin gauge cable causes friction which generates heat. use a thicker gauge cable. pref 32 or 45 amp depending on hob type.

Car just clicks when trying to start. All gauges


Battery. Does the car start. Usually when the gauges max out the battery has a dead cell. Try taking the battery cables off and cleaning the post/cables, then re-install the cables. Even the little acid can cause a battery to malfunction, also one of the terminals may not have a great connection. Clean those and see if it helps.

Battery wire fabrication


Ah.... battery cables. The gauge number is the size of the wire. The LARGER the gauge number, the SMALLER the wire is. And the reverse is true too. The smaller the wire, the less amperage (or power) that can flow through it before it melts down. The stock Ducati battery cables are 6 gauge. It's tricky to find 6-gauge cables anywhere as all the automotive parts stores *usually* carry either 4-gauge or 8-gauge. If you can't find 6, use the 4 as it's better to have a slightly too large wire then a slightly too small wire. If you're trying to replace the positive cable pictured in the first pic.... I think I have a spare one if you want. It's used, but likely in better shape then what you've got. Send me a personal message and we'll discuss if you want that part.
