    I was just reading a how to and it said to put the fuse in and connect both battery terminals before you connect the rca and speaker wires. It said that if its all connected and then you charge your amp for the first time, the amp will try to draw its groung through your speakers and radio damaging them in the process. Is this true? I was under the impression that you connect everything, put the fuse in, and then connect the negative terminal.

    Put the fuse in last. You should have only had one battery terminal off anyway(the +).

    The amp does not draw power that way; through the speaker leads. There are capacitors in the amp that will initially need charged, but that takes all of a couple milliseconds and requires no special techniques.

    Just put the fuse in last and everything will be fine. Unless you have a short some where, but then how else were you going to find it? haha :D
