I don't think I'm getting any power from my 2 ga. I thought maybe it was the remote but that'* not it. ANY IDEAS?

Are you still messing with that sony? if you have to bring it by, there really isnt any way wires can fail if the line isnt cut or the fuse isnt in

Nope, SONY is gone it was dead. I got my 100 A fuse and everything seems fine. I've tested 3 amps on it and nothing seems to want to power up. I got a voltometer but I don't know what to set it for.

I don't know what gauge my ground is. That could be my F-up. One of the amps is brand new a little concept for my 6x9'*.
