well after reading for hours and googling.
12v wire(blue) runs straight to the amp which i knew, ground goes on bare metal nothing painted which i knew, 4g red power wire goes straight to the battery with the fuse a few inches less then a foot from the battery which i knew, RCA cables run on the opposite side of the battery power wire which i knew, i've done everything right, i haven't blew any fuses.. i haven't ran any wires the wrong way. the only thing I'm clueless of is the 12v wire, i for some reason remember there being one from the c.d. players harness and one from the aftermarket harness that goes into the stock wiring adapter from the car, but there is only the one from the c.d. player harness, i feel like that doesn't pump 12v of power.. come on, someone has to know something.
