The amp will not turn on until it receives 12v via the remote turn on. Also, if your amp has two fuse slots, I would make sure they were both filled with the appropriate fuses.

You have to instal the remote wire or it will not work. I'd put in the other fuse as well just in case you have the fuse in the wrong slot or it needs both fuses.

How to connect wires to amp


Most amps have 3 places where you need to hook up wires to power them. the 1st is a ground wire that at best is 1 foot long and it goes on the ground or negative 12 volt connection then a bolt on the car you may need to sand off the paint for it to work, 2 a RMT or remote wire that is normally in the middle of the power and the ground connections the remote turns the amp on and off so it needs to go to the remote wire on the radio or a ignition spot on the fuse box - turns on with key on and off when you turn the key off , 3 the power wire is hopefully large 4 gauge wire and goes to the + 12 volt plug on the amp this wire has a in line fuse and goes to the battery and to the amp only. RCA wires go from the radio to the amp and are round and just plug in with no screws some factory radios need a conversion kit you can get at walmart for RCA wires. the speaker wires have some sort of mark or line to tell you what to put were like if you put the line on a negative on the amp you need to put the line on the negative on the speaker box to or it will not bass and could hurt your amp. ask me if you need anything else :) and please rate :/

Nitro 483 amp where do you hook up the power it has a gnd rmt and +12v what hooks up where


Fused 12 volt power wire from the battery connects to +12V at the amp. Chassis ground wire connects to gnd at the amp. Switched 12 volt power wire (accessory) (remote turn on from after market radio) connects to rmt at the amp.

Amp not working


It sounds like you either blew a fuse, or you cooked your amp. The fuse on the P200.2 amp is a 30A fuse, and it sits right next to the power, ground, and remote wire connections on the end. Pull the fuse out and see if it's blown. You should also check any other fuses that you have in the car before the amp.

Does the rmt hook up to ground or power


Hi the RMT is short for remote and is connected to a 12v feed taken from the remote output from the cd player, it provides the 12v needed to turn the amplifier on when required & turns it off when the player is turned off. Do not connect this to a permanent 12v feed as the amp. will be on all the time & you will have a flat battery every morning! Cheers, acbva.

Amp blows the fuse every time.


it aint the wire, the bigger the better.
try checking your ground, if there any rust clean with sandpaper. if your gain and freq is cranked it will blow fuses and cut out, cuz the protect mode kicks in

Trying to hook my amp up in my car, I already have everything but the main power supply which is the wire to the battery.I was wondering how would i do that the right way?


the car amp needs to be wired using a +12 power, ground, and +12v signal (rmt) cables.  the +12 volt cable needs to be connected from the posative terminal of the car battery to a fuse (the right size should be written on the amp somewhere) then to the +12v on the amp. the ground cable needs to be connected to the negative terminal of your car battery. the RMT is the more complicated one, this needs to be connected to the header unit or the ignition switch. if you look in the instructions for your header unit (the unict where you insert CD's or tapes etc) this should explain whewre exactly to connect this cable. or you can connect it to the terminal on the ignition switch which becomes live only when you turn the key, should be the third one in. this line basicly tells your amp to turn itself on when it recieves a 12v current. you can also wire it up to a manual switch directly from the battery by connecting another cable to the posative terminal of the battery then to a switch then to the RMT terminal of the amp.

Amp keeps kicking off? Power Protector?


as long as your powers and grounds are good(make very sure your ground is ok) then either you have a intermittent short in one of the subs or the amp is getting ready to die lol.. The sony amps are notorious for faulure-the quality is just not there... Is the amp really hot??? the only other thing you coudl try is to ass a fan or two in it or around it and see if that helps it out..

Amp not turning on


wouldn't be the first JL amp I saw fried...but there are some tests you can do. First of all, double check your fuses, they may appear to be fine, but sometimes they are blown even if you can't see it. Either blindly change them or test them for continuity with a digital multimeter. Also, disconnect the remote turnon and jump power directly over from the power wire to the remote terminal on the amp, if the amp powers on then you have to go double check your remote wire. Hope this helps.

Amp staying in protection mode


No, this amp is not a heavy power consumer- matter of fact it takes very little power to run.Maybe you should check the fuses on the amp to see if they are what is recommended.Also check your fuse kit to your amp- your fuse might not be big enough.If neither works take it back where u got it.
