That subwoofer isn't very big. What does it draw?RePo wrote:The battery power to the rear sub amplifier is right there behind the glove box on it route to the rear, so I just clamp-spliced a feed to the power inverter right there. Ground just uses the passenger seat mount bolt. I'm just about fully moved in to the car, now that the radar detector is installed now, too.
Sure, but when the inverter is really loaded to run the house fridge and TV during a power outage, there's no one in the car and all the accessories are powered off to dedicate all the juice to the house. When driving around, the power inverter won't power much more than a laptop or kids tablet that they never charge.Lasareath wrote:Do you use the stereo and the inverter at the sane time?
I like solder pots (map gas) AND crimping ... and redundancy ... and redundancyGetOffYourGas wrote:A solder pot works too, if you have access to one.JeremyW wrote:I would strongly recommend against soldering. The only thing that is going to properly heat a connector and heavy gauge wire up hot enough would be a blow torch. Crimping like KillaWhat did is the way to go!

6 ga wire feed directly from the 12v battery. When left in "ready to drive", the built in inverter can supply up to 135 amps to the 12v system, which is more than the draw from this 120v inverter under full load.
No, I ordered it without the remote on/off for a few dollars less. I didn't need it given my plan to mount it in easy reach on the center console. Even if I was going to hide it, I still don't know where that would be.Lasareath wrote:RePo,
Did the Inverter come with the Remote On/Off Lead ?
