Question about Rockford Fosgate Car Audio & Video
Check the gauge on the wiring. For that size amp you would need to use 0 AWG wire for the power, the speaker wire is just signal wire so you want to use regular speaker wire. (I have 12 AWG setup for speaker wires) What the two power ports (Neg and Pos) do is increase the amount of flow. Two power wires to distribute the flow of the current so you don't burn up your wires if your pumping too much juice. I started off with this exact amp running a single 8 AWG and split it into two and it burned up and blew a fuse after a couple of huge bass hits. So proper setup would be....
BAT(+)---FUSE HOLDER(60AMP+)---DISTRIBUTION BOX(30AMP+)====AMP
-- would be 1 wire pref 0 AWG splitting into more 0-4 AWG
== would be the 2 wires (Yes two ground points in separate locations would be better)
Thus finalizing you have a proper setup.
Be careful you don't burn out your alternator, this bad boy can cause some serious problems with a lower amp alternator. Let me know how it works out.
