Make Your Car’s Electrical System Safe for a High Powered Car Audio Installation

  • Uncategorized

High powered car sound systems deal with very high currents not normally found in cars. This necessitates the need for heavy duty electrical components and special power sources. A defective electrical system can short out and make your car inoperable.


High powered systems are often powered by deep cycle batteries and alternators with current outputs ranging from 100 to several hundreds of Amperes. This very high current can start fires if any of the cables short circuit. This can be dangerous because a spark can ignite car fumes and result to an explosion. When working with your car’s electrical system, it is very important to secure all connections and should be properly grounded and terminated. Protective fuses should also be installed and inspected if they are properly attached. If you don’t have adequate tools to assess the condition of your car’s electrical system, you might want to consider
