I need help installing a rockford fosgate punch 75hd amp in my 2013 ford f150. I ran the power cable but now I'm having trouble finding the radios remote turn on/off lead. Took the dash apart and...


If u are using a factory radio it may not have a remote turn-on (Usually the blue wire on the main connector to radio. and do not connect to any blue wire without checking the voltage) if there is not blue wire (remote) you can connect your amp to the red 12v (accessory) wire which will turn on amp when key is in accessory position and works the same and will not hurt your amp. If u do use this method and a pop is introduced when turning on radio and amp may need to purchase a relay to delay the amp turn on.

Hi, just trying to wire up my pioneer gm-620 car amp and having some problems with which wire goes where, due to not having a wiring diagram. (red is live) (black is ground) but i dont know where the blue...


i need to know is the blue wire comming from the amplfier or comming from the radio?

if its comming from the amplfier then
you need to connect this to the igintion wire (yellow) or if the radio has it connect it to the radio (it shoudl become 12V when radio turns on)

if its comming from the radio then
you need to connect it to the remote jack in the amplfier
the wire become 12V when the radio turns on
and the amplfier only turn on when the remote connection on the amplifier becomes 12V

Hooking up an amp


you need rca cables, an amp kit from your local audio shop(or walmart). make sure you know which wire is the remote from your radio as it will need to connect to the remote on your amp. most radios have the wiring diagram on top of the radio. Ground(black)/Power(from battery) and remote(typically blue from stereo.

Connecting amp to stock radio in a 2010 carolla and need to know what wire is remote turn on lead


There is no remote turn on lead on a factory radio. The way the shops do it is to run the remote wire to your radio fuse which turns on/off with the ignitin. If you really wanted to know you can use a volt meter but it will still turn on/off with the ignition but takes a lot longer to find plus you have to remove the radio!!

Remote wire?????


The old pioneer car radios solved this problem by supplying the battery power to the radio from the amp. When the radio turned on, it began to draw more power from the amp supply lead and this would turn the amp on. It was a simple circuit in the amp that only used one or two transistors. You may need to build this circuit or find a manufacturer of a similiar circuit. In the short run, you can use a small toggle switch to supply the trigger voltage (+12 volts) to the trigger wire connection on the amp. Good luck.

Ok, I am assuming this is the 600 watt amplifier?

DISCONNECT YOUR BATTERY!!

Supplies needed:
- 8 Gauge power wire (long enough to run from your battery to the amp placement) WITH an inline fuse!!
- Depending on your stereo (if it has amp pre-outs or not) you will either need RCA cables (long enough to reach your amp from your stereo) OR a Line-Out converter AND RCA cables.
- The power lead that connects to your "REMOTE" line on your stereo (long enough to reach from amp to stereo - usually blue)
- A good ground wire ( long enough to reach a metal part of your car from the amp)

======================================================================
STEP 1: Find a spot to run the power wire from your battery - through your firewall and into your car - and then to your amp. (DO NOT CONNECT IT TO ANYTHING YET)
STEP 2: Remove your car stereo and look to see if you have PRE-AMP outs (RCA connectors for an amp on the rear of the unit)
A- if you do, GREAT.. proceed to step 3
B- if you don't.. you will need to get a LINE-OUT CONVERTER - what this does is converts the higher signals from your standard wires on your radio, to RCA style wires to connect to your amp.
B2- you will also want to buy a wiring harness kit for your stereo, unless you want to hack away at your factory wires.. (not recommended) - connect the harness kit to your factory wire harness, wire in your leads for the output converter, and run the other end to your stereo.*
*you will need to know which wires run to the speakers you plan to power with the amplifier
B3 - once the converter is properly connected - proceed to step 3
STEP 3: Plug the RCA cables into the stereo or converter, and run them properly from behind your radio to the amp but DO NOT CONNECT THEM YET.
STEP 4: Connect the REMOTE wire from your stereo to the same wire for your amp . (this enables the amp to turn on/off with your radio.. otherwise.. you will have alot of dead batteries)
STEP 5: re-install your stereo into the car.
STEP 6: Connect the RCA speakers into the INPUTS on your amp
STEP 7: Connect the REMOTE wire to your amp.
STEP 8: Connect the speaker wire from the OUTPUTS on your amp to the speakers you wish to power
STEP 9: Connect the POWER CABLE to the amp PROPERLY
STEP 10: Connect the GROUND CABLE to a metal part of your car (sheet metal, not just a bolt)
STEP 11: Connect the POWER CABLE to the battery cable
STEP 12: Re-connect your Battery
STEP 13: Start your car, and test your radio.

If you have any issues from here.. you need to re-check all of your connections.

2000 watt jl audio amp & car battery...


Make sure that you don't have any strands that would connect the remote lead to the constant +12 volts. Also make sure that your remote lead fromt the radio switches off when you shut the car off. If you don't have an aftermarket radio with a remote turn-on lead, tap into the ignition wire to the radio. Let me know what kind of car you have and I can point you in the right direction to get the right wire. Good luck.

Hooked my punch Punch P450.4 up to speakers and ran rca cables to front and it wont work


Hi Jon,  you need to hook the Remote wire up to the Radios  Blue remote wire.  The car battery power stays on all the time.  The blue Remote wire watches to see when the radio turns on, and signal the amp to turn on as well.
