You will need the following:
A power wire (preferably 4 or 8 gauge) with an inline fuse (typically 50amps)
A battery terminal adapter to connect the power wire
A signal wire to let the amp know when the stereo is on
RCA audio cables to connect the amplifier to your stereo
A ground wire for the amplifier (again 4 or 8 gauge preferred)

Walmart sells a Scosche kit that has all of the wiring as well as a basic diagram for about $25, but it does not include the battery terminal adapter.

If you have a factory stereo you won't have RCA ouputs, so you will need a line level converter. A basic one like the Scosche SLC4 usually runs in the $20 range. You splice into your speaker wires and run them into the unit, then plug the RCAs into it.

1 battery or power cable to the 12volt connector on the amp
2 remote wire to b+ or rem on the amp
3 rca cabel should be pluged in the channels are using cause you tell me that the amp is 4 channel
from the model numbers
4 clean and scrape off paint on the metal surface you are going to install the ground cable from the amp . make sure your ground is no more than 12 inch max. and is the same gauge as the power cable
5 . run your speaker wires to the amp and make sure your ohm load for the subwoofer is 2 ohms or 4 ohms to make the amp work proper .

How to wire subwoofers correctly.


If you're ever unsure about how you need to wire your subwoofers to get the correct ohm load to your amplifier there are a few resources to help. Usually in the owners manual that comes with your subs and your amp they include a detailed ohm load calculator. First step is to determine what subwoofers you have. Common subs come in a dual 2 ohm or a dual 4 ohm version or a single 2 ohm or a single 4 ohm version. Next determine what ohm load your amplifier is rated at. Mono "subwoofer" amps usually are rated x amount of watts at either a 2 or a 1 ohm load. This means you need to purchase the correct subwoofer combination to match your amp. If youre purchasing 2 dual voice coil 4 ohm subs then to maximize an amp you should buy a mono amp stable at 1 ohm. and Dual 2 ohm subs would need a 2 ohm stable amp wired in series parallel. A great resource for a beginner is to go to www.the12volt.com and on the top of the page find the words "subwoofer wiring diagram" and click on it. This will bring you to a drop down menu where you choose the number of drivers "subs" or "speakers" you have and then you choose the impedence in the next drop down menu. Next you'll be provided with multiple wiring options. Good luck and never think you can't do it yourself. Once you learn it's very easy to retain.

How to wire your subwoofers correctly...


Much like many aspects of electrical car audio must be wired properly to ensure that you don't have short circuits, fires, and damaged equipment. As an 8 year experienced car audio installer I still forget sometimes. The best thing to do if you aren't for sure is consult a resource, the two top sites that I have found that have adequate wiring diagrams and basically give you a picture of what you're supposed to be striving for. www.the12volt.com is the most highly recommended site in my book. They have a section in subwoofer wiring that allows you to choose the amount of drivers you have, the number of voice coils per driver, and the impedence of those voice coils. This is a big resource if you don't know what specific subwoofers to buy or what amp will push your currents subs to their potential. It gives you all the options for wiring possible and explains the ohm load you will be presenting to your amp ensuring fail safe wiring.

My punch 550.2 amplifier's thermal light is turning on and off


well, hopefully the amplifier was wired correctly. But either way there are so many factors that can cause this problem... But the biggest one is the amplifier must have been sending some distortion to your subwoofers which a subwoofer can take a certain level of distortion and be fine but too much will blow any subwoofer even the highest of high end subs at a high volume... when your subs hit the point of blowing they will tend to just blow out one at a time... they don't just pop both right away. I'd say get the sub that isn't blown off off of the amp before it blows too... distortion is clipping most of the time... when you destroy the subs it will eventually work it's way to the next component in the system which is your amp and then you will be out an amplifier and subs. save yourself the headache.......

Amplifier turns on but not the subwoofer?


Hello thedj3214,

You can find the color codes for a 1999 Buick Regal here. There is no dedicated amp remote wire. Neither is there a power antenna wire.

You could use the 12V "switched lead (yellow) from the radio or any switched 12V lead directly from the vehicle fuse box. I'd wire it through a dash mounted toggle switch so as to be able to turn the amp on and off manually.

The Sony 2150GSX is a 2-channel amp with the speaker terminals on either side. You do not want to ground the subwoofer itself, only the ground terminal should be connected to bare metal on the vehicle chassis or body as close to the amp as possible. The ground wire does not need to be run to the negative battery terminal.

A ground on one of the speaker leads will probably cause the amp not to power up. A ground on a speaker wire usually activates the amps protection circuit, causing it to not operate until the fault is corrected.

Hope this helps.

Need proper wiring details.


This is a dual 4 ohm sub. By wiring the terminals in series (one set of + to - from one side to the other) you will have an 8 ohm sub (most folks probably don't want this). By wiring in parallel (+ to + and - to - and connect the - wire to the - terminal on your amp and the + wire to the + terminal on your amp you'll have a 2 ohm sub.

Vbx12a blows fuses when you power it up!


Make sure your gain is turned all the way down. Unplug the RCA cables before hand. What does the subwoofer do when the amp powers on?

Hi, I've just install an alpine power amp with JL 10inch subwoofer, everything seems to be working properly except for the subwoofer


If you have the RCA's running from the head unit to the amp, and the speaker wires running to the speakers then you have it hooked up right. Now If you still don't have any sound then you need to look at the amp to make sure that you have a green light. Still I would use 8 or 10 gauge power wire and then the same for the ground wire, make sure that you have a good ground.

Installing The Subwoofers to the amp... etc.


You should go with a 4 guage power wire kit. If your amp is going in and out
at high volume than that is your problem. 8 guage will work but, if you want
the proper current which is your power from your battery, going to your amp
than I would recomend the 4 guage amp install kit or just the main power
wire coming from your battery. If you would like contact me and I will send you
to a very good sight with all the info you will ever need for car amplifire installation.
