Default strapping amps with no master/slave switch

What up fellas! My question today is about strapping two caraudiobargain.com cab-1600.1's. They are strappable, but the manual is very vague to say the least. It shows how to put the rca jacks for bridged in and out and connecting the remote to the "master", but not how to hook up the speaker wires or what is suppose to be done as far as all the adjustment nobs on the slave. Since it has no slave/master switch, am I suppose to leave all the settings on the slave at zero and the master Will control all? Also is it suppose to be positive of master output to positive of subs and positive of slave to negative of subs with a jumper wire between both negatives on the amp? Thanks in advance guys!

Is there a manual for the amp? The way you describe is exactly how mine are strapped.

In my experience it's always been,

Speaker wire positive to positive on master
Speaker wire negative to positive on slave
Jumper wire between negatives

One rca from slave out on master going to slave in Slave

Followed this rule last night and it was a success. Was a little nervous cause I already blew one letting the speaker wires touch at full tilt, (my own dumb ass fault) but it all worked out. I actually have them running at 1om strapped so both amps are seeing a .05 load and holy crap do these suckers bang! don't even have them turned up more than half way and they are staying cool. I just finished putting in a odessey group 31 under the hood all 1/0 gauge with a stinger 500 amp battery relay, then ran a 2/0 welding wire to the amps under the seat. Only thing is I cant turn it up really much because I keep popping my 300 amp breaker under the hood. Ordered a 500 amp anl fuse last night so it will be here Friday. then I can play a little more with it. all in all very pleased with caraudiobargain.com amps. they have yet to disappoint. will try to do some clamping in the future.
