Post Dead Battery

I went to start my car this morning and it couldn`t turn over. Just clicking. Battery meter was in the red. I got out the charger and eventually got it running. I`m at kohls right now waiting for the gf to finish shopping, and I`m using my phone to type this so sorry if it`* messed up at all.

There are only two things that have changed since it ran last. Yesterday I put some clear corners on it (it looks great, pictures coming after I wash it later this week) and I put a new set of speakers in the rear deck. I spent about an hour total playing with the radio and lights. I double checked to make sure everything was off and all doors were closed before I went back inside the house.

If I happened to connect the speaker wires wrong, could that drain the battery or did I drain it playing with the radio?

Double check for any shorts. Put a amp meter on the battery and start pulling fuses. If there'* a drop you need to check that circuit.

The car'* been running/starting fine all day since I got it started. I had my dad help me check the fuses and we couldn't find anything. I'll try it tomorrow morning and see if it'* dead again. At this point I think I just drained it too much messing around with the radio yesterday without starting it.
