Looking at this picture you can see the terminals at the top.
This installation has one speaker hooked up on the right, and the power inputs hooked up on the left.
The inputs will be power on the left, 12 volts positive (V+); a signal wire for to power on the amp that's 12 volts positive too, (V+, It's usually a yellow wire that comes out of the car stereo called To Antenna, or To Amp. and the third connector on the left is a Ground, or 12 volts Negative (12-). Look for the labels V+ and V- to get the power connectors in the right places. (I can't tell from the picture which is which)
On the left side is the Speakers, Each speaker has a positive and negative lead, and the terminals on the amp are labeled Left + and Left - and Right + and Right - .
Align the speaker leads to the terminals (in cars a negative lead usually has a stripe running along the length of it, and a positive has no stripe).

On the other side of the amp are RCA sockets, one red one white. Any low signal can plug into these, from an Ipod to a turntable. Your car stereo, or EQ, will have RCA outputs that can connect to these with an RCA Patch cord, which has plugs on both ends that will fit into the RCA sockets. Whatever signal goes into the RCA inputs is amplified out of the speakers when it works.

Amps turn off and cut out


You just gotta get your gains set up right. Look Up "How To Set your Gains with a Multimeter" your over powering your subs or speakers and your amplifiers cant keep up. you also have to make sure your speakers are wired to the right ohms. your amp cant handle. if your amp cant handle, for Example:1 Ohms your gonna blow your amps. ......Speakers and subs are a science too.

I cant figure out my amp wire color code


every amp is wired the same its pretty easy... the red wire is your positive and needs to be hooked up to the battery.. black is the ground and needs to be touching something metal in your car. blue wire is remote start wire it goes from your radio to amp then plug your red and white rca cables from amp to radio

I have a 1000w amp but it got burned why??


Hello,

I'm sorry but your problem was a little confusing. Your speakers worked fine, you hooked up a 1000W amp and now you cant hear the sound ?

Then you say "they say because the wires were connected wrong in the amp it burned" does that mean your amp burnt out ?

Please post back and sort these facts out for further assistance.
As of right now im not sure if the problem is with the speakers or the amp itself.

Cant wire to mono amp


Hello danielperez9,

There are two options for wiring a single 2ohm DVC subwoofer to a mono amp. The first gives a 1ohm load and should only be used if your amp is stable at 1ohm. The second option results in a 4ohm load and would be OK for most amps. Here are the diagrams:

Alpine mrd-m501 amp


Disconnect the speaker wires from the amp, then try it again. If the error message doesn't appear, try connecting the speaker wires back to the amp one by one.

The error message is due to some sort of overcurrent in the amp. If the error does not go away when the speaker wires are disconnected, the issue is most likely with the amp itself and will need professional repair.

Need a lil ore help!!!


If the overcurrent of DC offset lights are not green, the amplifier probably has blown output transistors.

To eliminate other problems, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up normally (all lights green), the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
