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.

Only fuse you need is the power wire leading to your aftermarket amplifier for te subwoofer. Which most likely you have too small of a gauge of wire and burned straight through it, and if you haven't, add a 40 amp fuse near the battery where your power cable is hooked up to. Also use a multimeter to test your power wire on amp, check the

I have a amp from my car hooked up to a laptop power supply. It won't turn on. Everything is connected properly. What should I do


Why would you do that? If you were were going to do it properly, did you hook up the remote wire as well? Second, the voltage coming out the charger is >18 volts while the current draw on the amp is way too high for that charger.
Nonetheless, try a car battery if you want to test the amp.

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

The xxx 3.0 farad capacitor does not seem to have a remote wire terminal...was wondering how to find and hook up the remote wire.


Caps don't need remote wire. Remote wire goes directly from the deck to the amp, as it turns the amp on. Capacitors main function is to store the power from the battery and pass it on to the amp, thus not needing a wire to turn it on.

Stereo amp power supply


No I wouldn't share the amp feed. It should be stand alone, with its own fuse.

Yes it is wise to connect directly to the battery, hence through the firewall.

You should purchase an amp wiring kit, matched to the
watts of the amp. It has everything you need to correctly make all of the connections.

Good luck
