Default EL10A install in 65 Convertable Vette

Hi All, I'm running a EL10A with an ipod with a Y-splitter to a EL10A with the RCA's. The other side of the splitter going into Harley Davidson's "Boom Amp and Speakers". It was powering off after 20 minutes going into proctective mode.. After some reading it sounds like the negative ground is most acceptive to cause shutdown if a good grounding source is not found. Vettes being fiberglass is a challenge with one main ground to the chassis.I cleaned/sanded the ground attachment location and think that this has taken care of this issue.
It sounds great. When the rain clears I will take it out for a shake down ride

You are correct, finding a good ground is an absolute requirement. Early Corvette's have a common grounding point just for this reason.
