after doing more research... i think the power wire is too small, so we are going to get some 4ga (or 8ga since its a smaller amp/sub combo) and start with that.
it plays and hits hard with the key in the acc position, just not once the car is started.
also going to try to get the loc box at the end of the week.


the amp is weird though (to me at least).. there is no external vents for it. i know its not unheard of, but all my amps have vents. lol


edit:
it has to do with the amp getting the signal from the radio..
we started the car with the radio off, the amp turned on and was good... once we turned the radio on, it put the amp back in protect mode.

and on ACC, the capacitor reads right around 12-12.5 but when the car is running its up to 14, sometimes 16
