Hello everyone new guy here LOL I have a big problem that I can't figure how to fix I installed a new optima batt in my trunk and the circuit breaker keeps going off , I installed everything correctly its just that one problem I'm having if anyone can help I would appreciate the help, thanks in advance and just to let everyone know the amp is a ma audio hk10ka.
I'm sorry to say this. But if you are only running 2 batteries on that amp you are asking for trouble.
The reason you are probably popping the breaker is cause 1) you are drawing more current then its designed for(most are good for 200A) or 2) you have the positive and negative backwards.
Thanks guys I was afraid someone was gonna say that I need more power, I'm running stock alt with 2 optimas a red top for starting and my new yellow top in the rear , so I guess its I get a Ho alt or sell the amp I feel like I real noob I should have known better.
I have tested that amp about a bazillion times. I know what it does clean, clipped, dirty, loaded, unloaded, wired down, low voltage, good voltage, after it hot, while it's cool, on caps, on batts, where it protects, what's thermal limits are and just about anything else anyone would care to know about it.
But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.
