How hook amp up to a oem integration SNI-15 line output convertor


The amp needs an RCA input to communicate with the head unit. SOLDER the wires that come out of the head unit for the front speakers to the SNI-15, making sure that the polarity and right/left is correct. Do this for the front and rear speakers if you have a 4 channel amp. Cut the wires if you add new speakers and run the new wire from the speakers or sub box directly to the amp, or skin back the wire insulation and tap on if you use the factory speakers :( then plug your RCA cable from the SNI-15 to the input side of the amp. Don't forget that most new cars have their own amp so you might have to locate it and bypass the speakers wires around it. Don't make a mess in case you have to put everything back to factory for resale. You can avoid all this by installing a new/modern head unit with built in RCA outputs for front, rear, and sub woofer. I hope this helps. Ray

    How Do I Wire An Amp To A Factory Stereo Without Rca Jacks


    Hello jon101478,

    Purchase a line output converter (LOC) such as the PAC SNI-45T shown here. Tap the LOC inputs into your rear channel speakers and run RCA's from the LOC to your amp. The unit shown in the link also has a trigger wire that you connect to the remote terminal of your amp. You can get a cheaper LOC and just run a switched 12V source to the amp if you wish.

    Hope this helps.

    Wiring Speaker to amp


    remove all speaker connections to your amp. MAke sure the inputs are driving all 4 channels, and that the built in crossovers on the amp are all set to full range. Conect your full range speaker to each output channel one at a time and verify there is oputput on all 4 channels. If all is ok, then connect your rear speakers to the front(a) outputs of your 4 channel amp, and then use the second 2 channels (rear or B) bridged to drive the sub. Re-configure the crossovers for highpass for front (to drive your rear speakers) and lowpass for sub. This is the proper way to connect a 4 channel amp with a sup whle driving 2 full range speakers.

    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.

    Wiring question


    Hi, If I got the specs right, your amp is a 4 channel hence the 4 RCA inputs. Probably the simplest would be to feed the 2 X RCA out of the deck to the 1 & 2 RCA in of the amp. This amp has also a line out, feed the amp's lineout back to the 3 & 4 in. This way, all four channels get same input from the deck and you will have identical power to all 4 speakers (front & rear). An afterthought is to also use the 4 outputs of the deck (since they are there anyway and it is not a good tech practice to leave outputs without load/speakers) and connect 4 mid-range or 4 smaller speakers. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
