Adding an amplifier in no way draws more power from the stock radio or head unit. All it does is take the signal be it either a line level signal from the wires going to the speakers ( as long as the amp has inputs for line level or speaker inputs) or a signal from pre outs with RCA jacks you just need to make sure you supply power to the amp adequate for whatever amp you purchased. As long as the connections are made properly and everything is fused properly with the correct gauge wires there will be no problem at all. Allthough the stock head unit unless it is a premium unit wont have the quality of sound you would get from a good head unit. Once you install an amp and good speakers you may notice that the head unit isn't quite up to par.

Hi, I have an offbrand, dual 15"s, but they still work like the normal brand ones. The question is, why they give me feedback when the car is off and some Windows r open. It just sits there and hums


It sounds like your amp isn't shutting off. If its humming when the stereo is off, and the key is in the off position, make sure that you have the remote power wire coming off the amp hooked to the blue/white wire coming off the stereo harness(with aftermarket harness). If your using the stock stereo, it can be hooked to the switched 12+ wire ( lookup factory wiring here:
The Install Doctor The Do It Yourself Car Stereo Installation Resource... ) but the amp will only shut off with the key off, not when the stereo is off and the key is in the on position.

In my 06 Chevy uplander I installed an amp with a interface to use the stock stereo, now I get a rear audio error when I try and use my DVD player? What's the solution?


Some require specific stereo to prevent that the vehicle 's sensors from tripping and saying a fault. You & I know its the stereo installation that is the problem. Solution is make sure the stereo is grounded to prevent it from causing problems with DVD player's audio. As one may over power the other as they both fight for control of use of same speakers.

Dodge durango stereo


The stock amp would be useless if you are going to uprate the rest of your system. Because you will play it louder. You could use it to drive the front door speakers, but I would remove it and fit an upgraded item that will actually improve your system.If you are going to install a new head unit then there is a very real chance that the amp in the new head unit will be better than the one installed by the manufacturer.

How do I hook up my MTX 300XD thunder amp to my car stereo.


You have alot of work ahead of you. If you haven't installed an amp before, you may want to have a stereo shop or your regular mechanic install it. There are amp install kits available at most auto part stores. Also, if it's a stock stereo, there are adapters you can use to pull signal from your stock speakers.

After market stereo in 1997 eddie bower ford expodition provides no sound


You should be using line out from your aftermarket stereo if using the vehicle's existing amp. Then again, you may choose to bypass it, depending on the power being put out by your new stereo.
In both the Expedition and Excursion, the sound systems are different than smaller Fords. The Eddie Bauer typically had the Premium sound system, and the wiring can get tricky with those. You want to make sure it's done right so you don't short out and damage the amp circuit in your new stereo.
If all you're using is the existing speakers, then go ahead and bypass.

I have a sony explod an want to hook up the sub that came stock in my truck ( 04 chevy ss) its a bose sub. an dont want to run a amp, can it be done and how?


You can do it, but you'll need to use one of the outputs from the stereo, i.e. right rear/left rear. Disconnect the exsisting wiring to the sub. You'll need to run the two output wires from the stereo straight to the sub.

I am installling a subwoofer in a celica


Your stock stereo doesn't not have RCA Pre-outs, to plug into the amp, which powers your sub, so pick out a good stereo, and email me with the details.
