IT MAY NOT HAVE A CHOKE BUILT INTO THE CIRCUITRY. YOU CAN BUY A NOISE SUPPRESSOR AT RADIO SHACK. THIS SHOULD ELIMINATE MUCH OF THE ALTERNATOR WHINE NOISE. GOOD LUCK! ...BB
Sound like a ground issue with amp. Make sure you amp has a ground 12 inches or less and the same gage as power wire. Insure you have good bare metal to metal contact.
Most will say that the white striped wire is the ground. The bottom line is that it doesn't really make a difference as long as your amp ground goes to your speaker ground. This is very important!
A #14 wire will do fine for grounding a 20 amp device. That is the size of the ground wire in a 2 conductor # 12 wire building cable.
NO. Just ground the amp to the chassis try to make ground short as possable about 12 inches is plenty. BE SURE GROUND WIRE IS THE SAME GAGE AS THE POWER WIRE. If its an 8 ga. + then use 8 ga. for the ground.
your amp will ground in your sound system, or through your power adder which rock.
most of the time you will have an extra wire or two make sure you cap them off or tape them so they dont ground out. and as far as the noise in your speakers you have a bad ground and if you have an amp then you need to separate your wires running to your amp cause they are interfearing with each other and your getting road noise.
#8 copper wire.
Since the resulting short circuit would be outside the amp, it WOULD NOT blow the amp.
The amp will lead a dull and empty life.
Positive post of capacitor is connected to the heavy amp cable. The ground terminal (or case) of the capacitor is connected to the car's ground or a ground wire that leads to the car's chassis. That's it.
you can ground it right to the frame. just find a bare spot and put a screw with the ground wire
# 8 copper ground wire
A 200 amp service panel will require a # 4 bare copper ground wire.
A ground wire for a service distribution has to be copper. A #6 copper conductor can be used up to a 200 amp service.
The ground wire in a two or three conductor #12 cable is a #14 bare ground wire.
A minimumbare copper wire that can be used to ground a 200 amp distribution service is a #6.
A 40 amp breaker is used in conjunction with AWG # 8 copper wire. The black and red wires are connected to the breaker. The ground wire is connected to the ground bar and the white wire is connected to the neutral bar.
No, you can use #4 bare copper ground wire.
A#3 bare copper conductor is used for a ground wire for 100 amp service.
The size of wire you need is #8 bare.
No. Hook up the power wire first, then the ground wire. The ground wire is what acutually draws the power to the unit. As you will notice the power wont turn on if just the power wire is plugged in..
A 100 amp residential service requires a size #8 copper wire, it should be insulated in green.
On a 200 amp or any size service the ground wire is easily identified. Look in the distribution panel for the neutral bus bar. This is where the service neutral (white wire) is connected to the distribution panel. There you will see a bare copper wire connected to the same neutral bar. This is the ground wire that is connected to the ground rods out side of the house.
