Question about Car Audio & Video
I have a 2005 chevrolet silverado crew cab and i have a dual touch screen receiver with a kenwood amp and 2 twelve inch infinity subs and 2 fosgate capacitors. when power supply is hooked to battery the power supply is pulling 250 milliamps and is killing the trucks battery in no time at all. The amplifier is not on and the radio is turned off. Do you have any idea what could be killing it? could it be the radio shorting out? can the power supply wire that runs to the battery short out? could it be the digital led read outs on the rockford fosgate capacitors?
250 mA drain isn't enough to be a short circuit...it most likely is the capacitors continuously charging.
One way to confirm this is to put an ammeter (with a fuse inline) in series with your main power feed to your stereo power supply. By adding or disconnecting individual components, you can quickly determine where your power drain is coming from.
