Default Just got a RS10A, need some info

Hey there. Ive been looking at getting a bazooka sub for awhile and saw a deal I couldnt pass up.

I ended up getting a "RS10A" (without and HP). looks like the harness is still intact.

my main question is what kind of fuse should I get to run
from the battery to the tube?

the other one is it didnt come with the mounting brackets or straps. would there be an easy makeshift workaround? or should I invest in a new set?

if anymore info is needed let me know. Im pretty new to the car audio scene. Thanks guys

You could get creative with brackets and sheetmetal screws and fab your own brackets, or call the 800 number and customer service can get you some pretty inexpensively.

As for the fuse, 20 amps, any automotive type fuseholder should do the trick. 10 Ga or better wire on the power, and you'll be off to the races.

alright. I bought an amp kit that was rated for 200 watts so it should be fine.

having some problems getting the tube to power on though. I think its the grounding wire but Im not sure. right now Im using the remote power from the auto antenna wire in the back of my CD player. the power cable is getting power and the orange remote wire is also getting power (not sure on the exact volts, only have a cheap probe and light voltometer thingy). when I turn the car on the red LED doesnt come on.

Im grounded onto the seatbelt strap bolt. I scrached off as much paint as I could around the thing and slipped the O ring under the bolt on the chasis. thats the best I could find in my trunk. most of the bolts are too big to fit the ring inside and screw it on.

the auto on feature is off and Ive tried using hi level and low level inputs. though I dont think that has anything to do with it turning on.

anyone have any ideas?

thanks

At this point, it's got to either be the ground or a bad amplifier.

Can you check for power between the connection @ the amp, ie, ground to the ground wire, and check for power on the red wire? If you have a bad ground, that wouldn't show any power. You should get about 12.5-14 volts.

thanks for the response.

well I grounded on the ground wire at the base and at the grounding point and both showed power (not sure on the exact volts though. cheap voltmeter)

I didnt get a chance to try out different ways of turning the amp on. Ive read that the auto on feature isnt too great, but Ill give that a try tomorrow.
