Question about MTX Thunder 2-Channel Amplifier 282 Car Audio Amplifier

2 Answers

I need installation instructions for a MTX thunder 280

I need to find out where to connect the wires. I know "Batt" goes to power, "GND" must be the ground, but can someone tell me what is "Remote" and where and what I need to connect there?

BATT = 12v positve constant
GND = 12v negative or ground
REM. = 12v positive switched or remote wire.

The remote wire is most commonly found on aftermarket CD players. It's typically in the main wire harness. The most common color of this wire is blue with a white stripe.

With the Uniden UH7700NB How do I tell which is positive and negative on the power input THANK YOU


You can connect the radio to any standard 12 volt DC power source, with either a positive or negative ground. If you don't know whether your power supply uses a positive or negative ground, consult the manual for your power supply or contact the manufacturer.

Where can I find the memory wire for the radio


Car radios don't have a 'memory wire'. Memory is held in integrated circuit chips called EPROMS, (electronically programmable, read only modules).

I have a boss 400w riot 2-4 channels,how do i connect the high level wires? Because stereo doesn't have rca's


to use the high level leads, you have to isolate the wires going to each speaker (if using 4 channel mode) or isolate the wires going just to the rear if you are using 2 channel mode. you have to strip a small piece of the insulation off each speaker wire, and run it into the amps high level input harness. if you dont have the high level input harness, you can get a 2 channel high level to rca adapter for around $20. basically, you are tapping into the signal to the stock speakers to feed music to the amp. make sure you get all your positives and negatives correct. brighter wires are usually positive; however you may be faced with sa speaker which uses a grey wire, and another grey wire- the second with a black line. you will have to, again, turn to internet research to determine which is positive and negative, if the colors are not obvious.

JVC KD-R330 Won't turn off Demo mode - tried instructions. Every time I follow the instructions (Turn on, Hold Menu, push "vol" button, change to Demo off...etc) It doesn't work. In fact, as soon as I...


Hi,

Do you have a Bluetooth adapter plugged into the KD-R330?

A compatible Bluetooth adapter (like the KS-BTA100) usually plugs into the rear auxiliary port of the receiver. It then needs to be "paired" with your Bluetooth device, for example, a Bluetooth phone headset.

What you're describing sounds like what can when no Bluetooth device has been "paired" yet.

If you don't HAVE a Bluetooth adapter connected to your KD-R330....is it possible you accidentally plugged something into its rear auxiliary jack? Or the front auxiliary? In other words, is it possible your KD-R330 receiver is mistaking some other device for a Bluetooth adapter?

Don't know if that helps at all...if there's no adapter issue, and nothing connected to the AUX jacks, probably your next step should be a call to JVC, or whatever number you were given for tech support.

On the bright side, since the receiver turns on, and responds to some commands, you probably didn't mess up anything major in the wiring. And, there's also the possibility the receiver is defective....certainly if this continues, and JVC can't help you, trying a replacement might be worth a try.

BTW, feel free to post a reply...I'm going to look further to see if there's any other documented issue besides an adapter that might cause the problem you're having.

Lightning audio b150.2 as soon as +12 is hooked up blows 25 amp fuse and the c2 1000uf/35v capacitors blow???????


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Double check all connections .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.
