    Quick question - Can I power the Opus 90w in the house with a spare car batt?

    I will have it hooked up to a home car battery charger, will it work so I can do testing?

    Ehh its not working.

    Positive to positive.
    Negative to negative.
    2 pin power wire connected from Opus to MII

    I connect the ACC-ON wire to 12v positive, nothing happens. I don't see a green LED either. I can't even find it on the Opus, it's definitely not lit up though. Fuse is not blown.

    I read that you can make it work. Seems like you connected everything correctly.

    Does the needle go up on the battery charger when you connect it to the battery? If it doesn't your battery might be dead - happens if they are left discharged for a while.

    Do you have the ATX connector plugged in too?

    Note: You need at least 12 guage wire for the pos and neg connections. Don't use anything less or else it won't power up
