You can tap the amplifier's remote wire into the accessory power lead at the back of the head unit. On most head units this is a red wire. Doing this will make your amplifier turn on and off with the key switch, rather than the deck power.

What is rmt on the amp


On most amps, rmt (remote) is a wire that connects to your stereo remote wire to the remote port on the amp. The remote wire turns your amp on when turning ignition on and turns amp off when turning ignition off. This wire needs to be connected as without it, you will drain your battery.

Amplifier has a phone jack for remote. Stereo has a blue wire for remote. Do these two need to connect to each other, or can I just run a phone cable from the amp to a remote switch mounted up front. ...


No. That port is for your gain(volume) control switch for the amp(it should have been included with the amp). Connect the stereo's blue remote wire to the amp's remote input that's next to the batt. input and ground input. Here's a link that showed me the pics plus a pic of the switch with the phone jack cable. Copy and paste. Good luck. http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_2553_Volfenhag-ZX-8300.html

Wiring


The remote turn on should be connected to the blue wire of the stereo. this wire is used to turn on the amp on ly when the stereo is on. If you connect this wire to a +12 constant, the amp will stay on all the time.

Does the rmt hook up to ground or power


Hi the RMT is short for remote and is connected to a 12v feed taken from the remote output from the cd player, it provides the 12v needed to turn the amplifier on when required & turns it off when the player is turned off. Do not connect this to a permanent 12v feed as the amp. will be on all the time & you will have a flat battery every morning! Cheers, acbva.

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.

Amp stereo hook ups


You need to run RCA cables from the RCA output jacks on the back of the Sony to the input RCA jacks of the Jensen amp. Then you need to run a wire that connects to the blue wire of the wiring harness on the sony to the "remote" or "turn on" terminal of the jensen. That is the wire that turns the amp on when the radio is turned on. It should be on the power wire terminal of the jensen along with the +B (positive) and the GND (ground) terminals. Those are the only ones that go from the Sony to the Jensen. You also need to have the speakers connected to the speaker jacks of the amplifier, and the power wires connected to the power terminal of the amp. The positive power wire needs to go to the positive battery terminal and the ground should be connected to the chassis of the car close to the amplifier. make sure the ground is connected to a clean bare metal part to make sure it is good.

Thats all, but you also need the proper guage wire and make sure no bare wire is exposed to any metal areas or the chassis of the car. You can get all of those things at anyplace that installs car audio. They can tell you the proper guage wire and they have the RCA cables to.

If you are not experienced at this type of installation you really would be better off lettng a professioanl do it for you. It is easy to wire something wrong and damage the amp and/or the receiver.

The wires also need to be run in a place that they will not be damaged and are out of the way.

Ihope this helps you, and please be careful. Help is here if you need it.

Have you connected the remote wire from the stereo to the amp? assuming it has one.
If the stereo has not got a remote wire you can link it from the positive 12 volt on the amp to the remote connection on the amp, usually it's in between the ground connector and the 12volt.
