Sub Wire Question

Well just wandering if it is ok to leave all the wiring from my sub in place with out being hooked up to anything. Took my sub out so i can get my bow case in and out without any noise issue or having to lean it up on the sub itself. just wanna leave ther wires ran so when the hunting season is over i can put it right back in my truck. Thanks!!

Yea they'll be fine. Just take some electrical tape and tape up the bare wires so they don't arc and screw up your amp. Or put a wire nut on each wire.

Something you might want to try as well is putting in a breaker between the battery and the amp (for the + connection). That way you can pull your amp/subs out frequently and all you need to do is flip the breaker.

Why? You're doing something wrong if you ever even blow a fuse to begin with

Yeah, but it's useful in situations like this. I never blow a fuse anyway.
