Question about Car Audio & Video
Coil has two neg pos in the center
The easiest way to think of wiring voice coils and subs is this:

The fault is probably at either end. Yes, it could have been reversed, but most radios are easily protected against this.
If you are getting no lights or anything when keying mic, then there may be an inline fuse along the cable. As you are getting continuity, open the case up, and look for any evidence of heat at the components nearest the power supply - particularly the protection diodes - Black cylinrical components with a silver band.
You really need a meter or scope to go in much further, and check supply voltages between components and -ve, and downloading a copy of the circuit diagram will help this.
The other main fault is usually the output power transistor - which needs a sink for all the power getting thrown at it. If you remove the antenna, it can quickly overheat and fail.
Both components can be checked in-situ for voltage (or not) but the output can only be tested with a scope.
Of course - the "on" light could have blown, so may be functioning without indications, - but I doubt it.
Also check Mic outputs on the plug to make sure that is working. Some units won't function if this is disconnected.

On Dyna S DS6-1 Dual Fire Ignition Systems
The WHITE WIRE connects to the POSITIVE (+) side of the coil
The BLUE WIRE connects to the NEGATIVE (-) side of the coil

Unfortunately, those units have a circut board at the power source and if there is no fuse you more than likely destroyed that board. Take the casing apart (the part attached to the boat) it should be two halves. That inital board you see is probably what is destroyed. Of course before i did that I would look for an inline fuse near where the cables attach to the battery or under the unit in the nose of the boat. There is nearly always a fuse if it came from the factory or dealership with the unit so i'd play a little extra hide and go seek for that before doing anything else.
Best of Luck

SOURCE: need to charge 12v car battery
If battery is out of the vehicle, connect positive lead to positive terminal and negative lead to negative terminal.
If battery is in the vehicle, the proper way to connect leads depends on if it's a negative-grounded or a positive-grounded vehicle.
Here is a link to the manual for this charger.
Click where it says "Get This manual" (it's free).
Scroll down to pages 4 and 5 and it give detailed instructions on the proper way to connect leads and a lot more. It's a good manual to keep for future use.
I hope this helps.
