Re: power wire

You should run a new power wire to the battery or fuse box from the Sub. For safety there should be a fuse on the cable at the battery or fusebox end.

I have one wired connected to the ignition on to main power and it says i need to connect one to car power supply, where do i hook that one up to ???

Are you installing a speaker box and amplifier? Your ignition wire on your speaker box or amplifier should go to the ignition wire on your radio. That turns the system on when the radio is turned on. The main power wire should be ran using 8 gauge or lower wire with a 30 amp fuseable link and connect directly to your battery

Can you show me a dieagram or wireing up a amp

The process is pretty much straight forward for any amp.
This is what you will need to get the job done:
15 ft- 4 gauge power wire (RED) with in-line fuse 3 ft - 4 Guage Ground wire (Brown) 15 ft - 12-16 Gauge Remote wire (Blue) 15 ft - RCA Wires Here are the steps:
  • BATT - (Battery +12v) - This will be a 4 guage red wire that you will run directly from your car battery to this Terminal. Be sure to buy a wire a with an inline fuse. This is the main power supply to your amp. Be careful 12 volts doesn't sound like much till you see it in action. I would do this wire last, last thing you want is a hot wire accidentally touching some bare metal.
  • GND - (Ground Wire) - This is the terminal you will use to ground the AMP. Run a 4 guage wire from this terminal and fasten it to some bare metal in your trunk. Not more than three feet.
  • RCOM /Remote - There will be a small gauge wire from the back of your stereo that will be the remote wire it will be blue, most stereos have this wire labeled. Its purpose is to send a signal to the amp to turn on when the radio is powered on.
  • RCA Wires - The location for these is not pictured above, on the back of your stereo there will be amp outputs. Your stereo will send all your low frequencies (Bass) to your amp using these wires. On the amp you will see where these wires will go. They are essential to have a system.
The best way to go about this is hook up the power, ground, and remote and test the Amp to see if it powers up. I have seen so many of my friends skip this step and they paid for it later. I hope this helps if you need any more help let me know.

I dont know what color wires are for what, i had my head unit stolen and now im not sure what wires go to the new kenwood head unit

The three main wires you need to worry about are the
Ground (Black) Battery + (Red) Constant + (Orange)
As far as the speaker wires goes you are going to have to trial and error them. They are usually color coded so for instance one wire is purple with a white stripe there would be a purple wire with a black stripe that would correspond with it. Every vehicle is different in how it is wired. I know installing a stereo looks intimidating but just split up the wires and you will see it is quite simple. Do a professional job and use crimp connectors, going the electrical tape route is never worth the time it saves.

Memory stations not staying saved

It could be that you have the battery & accessory wires from the head-deck the wrong way round. Try wiring the main power wire from the head-deck(yellow usually) through a fuse & directly to the positive battery terminal, & the accessory wire (red usually) to the yellow wire that comes from your ignition barrel. Let me know how you get on

I need to know why it says protect on the display screen

usually the red yellow and black are your main three that power on the deck yellow is for the batt red is for the ignition switch that tells the cd player to turn on when the key is turned and the black wire is ground (usually) depending on the car the deck wiring harness is always the same color but the harness wires vary
the illimination is usually and orange wire with a black stripe on it that needs to be hooked up if you have one so the screen turns on
p.constant is usually blue or blue with white stripe that is for amp turn on in some situations or power antenna.
