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.

total the fuses on the amp eg.3 -20amp fuses = 60 amps and get a fuse holder that can handle that amount of amps the amplifier draws with matching fuse and change the one that was melted ,also very important is to have a clean grounded wire to chasis from amplifier.

Black doesn't work!


First, remove the black ink cartridge and make sure that the protective tape was removed from the bottom. Also, there IS a chance that the cartridge is empty now, or that the original empty was mistakenly installed, instead of the full one.

Hope this helps.

Hi there,

I have just had the same problem. I have a N reg vectra and just fitted a Maystar radio. I too was getting the PHONE IN message randomly when the ignition was on (fine when not).

I think the PHONE IN is a mute function to cut sound when a call comes in. On my connections it was the brown wire - it should tell you the "Phone in" connection in the manual or on the bottom of the radio. I disconnected this and taped up with insulation tape to avoid connecting with anything else. Worked for me!
