How to hook up an amp to a car

remote turn on wire( blue/white) from stereo to amp. RCAs from stereo ( sub out) to amp. Power wire (fused) from battery to amp. Ground wire from clean, paint free chassis to amp. Speaker wire from amp to speaker. ( simplied version). Do you have an amp kit? All the wires, connectors and the fuse will be included in the amp kit.They are rated for the amps power output; 0,4,8 gauge.

Stereo wont stay on and only couple speakers work

on the back of the stereo you should have an rca inputs in the back, it should say either rear, subwoofer, or non-fade. all of these are acceptable, run rca's to the amp from the deck.
also on the deck in the wire harness is a blue wire with a white stripe.
hook a wire up to this and run it to the REM. terminal of your amp. this wire tells the amp to turn on when you turn on your key.
these are the only two wires you hook up the back of the stereo.
hope this helps

depending on how many channels the amp is, you may not be able to hook everything up to it.

usually you have a separate amp for subs. 4 channel amp for the speakers in the car, and a mono amp for the subs.

To hook them all up to the same amp you would need an amp with 5 channels. It wouldn't work out right.

If you have a mono amp its only for subs.

If you have a 2 channel you can either hook it up to the rear speakers or bridge them to mono to run the subs.

you need a channel per speaker basically.

No sub signal from a CDX GT520.

connect the speake(sub) directly to the stereo(just use one of the rear 6x9 speaker wire to test the sub and make sure it's not the amp. if it does not work, it's the sub

How do i turn on sub mode?

For one thing I hope you know you need an amp to even power subs at all.. The remote wire coming off the rca wiring that you hook your subs up with has to go on the prong 3-in on the top here is a rough diagram: the = signs are power and ground and the prongs are thicker the comma is you remote..
- - - - - - - , - =
- - - - - - - - - =

You need a wire coming out of that slot on the wiring harness.. it should be blue. and unless you have a power antenna(comes out when you turn your radio on) then you dont need the blue/blue&white power ant. wire you can just cut it and cap it. if your amp isn't coming on when you turn your ignition to acc then your remote wire isn't properly attached..

Amp and sub bass playing through all speakers

You need to go into the setup menu and find out if the radio has a sub low-pass filter that redirects the bass to the pre-out for the subs, and away from the main speakers. Fiddle in the audio menu.
