i plan to hook the meter back inline and unplug the amps and see if the draw goes away again. I've kept the fuse out and the battery voltage hasn't dropped a bit in over 2 days. i'll post something Friday or Saturday.

murphy's law rearing it's head for me this w/e. I removed the rear seat for easy access to the amps. put the 25a fuse back in then connected the meter inline but I didn't see any draw. I must've blown the amp fuse in the meter last weekend. I can see voltage. I left the fuse for about 12 hours and saw the volts drop about .2 i'll get another fuse for the amp and try again.

it turned out to be the left rear amp. unplugged that and the draw went away. stereo still sounds good. I think I found the bad amp. put my power meter inline and saw a draw of .13, put the fuse in for the radio and it jumped to .31., removed the cable from the amp behind rear seat on driver's side and it went back down to .13. then unplugged the passenger side amp and no change so I plugged that back in. I left the driver's side amp unplugged and the radio still has volume. i'll know for sure in the a.m. when I re-check battery voltage.
