You can get 2 ga power wire and a grounding block and get some 10 ga speaker wire or 8 ga and cut to length (leave a little play to move enclosure a bit) also get power fuse block for battery location..

How do you hook a iPod or a MP3 player to this amp without using a radio I'm wanting to put in a side side really don't want to use a radio


Use the rca inputs as if you were using an amp ,but before you connect them make sure the power is off, to prevent popping your speakers.Also you may need to start with your gain low and work your way up.

Most of the cars have 90 amp alternators and that might be a little on the small side. Also be sure that you use the right guage wire and capacitors on the supply.

My amp is on but when the bass hits it pulls the sub back and it goes into protect mod what can i do to fix this?


You may have a woofer with an impedance that is not correct for your amplifier, or possibly a damaged woofer. Try hooking up a different sub in your car without moving your amp, see if it does the same thing. If it does your amp has an internal issue. If it doesn't you know it's the sub.

My amp protection light came on one day. Now it won't turn on. What's wrong?


There is more than likely an issue with your amp, it could've happened from a wire being shorted to ground or a damaged sub causing bizarre impedance issues at your amp. Uninstal it and have it bench tested.

How to buy the best subwoofer


There are several factors to what sounds good in a subwoofer. Your head unit, amp, enclosure size and enclosure type as well as where its placed. I tend to think that fosgates are superior to a lot of speakers but orion and JL are making some pretty impressive speakers too. Check the speakers need for airspace and make sure you can accomodate it. If you can, and the resonant frequency is more to your liking then move up to fosgates. Personally, I think the difference MIGHT be minimal assuming you are using the same inclosure, amp and head unit. Good Luck!
