Still a little fuzzy're not trying to run the amp off of the power from the radio are you? If you are it will not work. The cables on the radio (pos/neg) are usually like 16gauge...your amp will require a much larger gauge wire. In fact...if the cable is too small the amp will turn on for a sec (maybe even just light the light) then go dead.

Holy confusing....might want to restate that question...ther is no power per se on the output/input....I suppose signal is DC voltage but I don't think thats what you meant. Remote wire has minimal power it is designed to turn the amp on and off with the ignition...check the main power cables red and black usually. Be can scare ya Good luck...

    the answer is yes but unlikely.

    question...does your amp support hi-in (which means speaker wires straight to the amp) or pre-amp (RCA) only?

Power light

Hi Bill, I believe the power problem is related to the Remote wire which should be blue or yellow. The remote wire is suppose the turn the Basslink on and off when the radio is turned on and off. The yellow wire is normally used for power antenna. Traditionally the remote wire is blue. You can use a Speaker level adapter and splice in with the L/R rear speaker wires, and the adapter will convert the speaker level to line level. The output of the adapter will go to the Rear speaker input on the basslink., Write back if you need more detail on the adapter.

Can u hook up a audio amplifier to a stock deck in a 2005 dodge Durango limited edition 5.7 ltr engine if u can? were do I go for a diagram? Or a manual or video

You need to look at the back of the stock deck to see if it has pre-amp outputs. That would be RCA jacks. If it does, then the RCA jacks would plug into the power amp Input using RCA cables.

Were do i plug in the RCA cables from the amp to a factory radio? do i need any sort of adapters if my stereo dose not have inn or outputs? and where do i hook up the remote from the amp?

Most factory radios do not have RCA outs, but most will have a remote wire. Usually used for a power antenna option. Your remote wire from the amp could be hooked to the power antenna wire on the factory radio and it would work great for turning on the amp. As for the RCA inputs on your amp, you will not be able to use them without RCA outs on your factory deck. Although most amps offer a high level input alternative and will use the standard speaker level out on your factory deck. This means the rear channel speaker wires from your factory deck will be used to feed the signal to the amp. You will have to check the instructions and manufactorer recomendations for the amp you are trying to hook up. Have fun and good luck!

Check Power cable fuse, check ground is grounded to non painted surface.
This is all you need to get it to work. If you still have a problem, then it is a bad capacitor inside the amp

Red light is on when i connect input cable earthquake 1000w amp

Cables are either shorted, or deck is putting out too much power for input on amp... many new head-units will put out up to 7v on the output jacks (RCA) the amp may only want to see up to 1v will need to consult head-unit manual for adjustment of outputs.

Amp neon lights wont turn off

There are two types of power that feed your amplifier. There is a constant power that connects directly to the battery and there's a remote power that usually connects to the remote power output of your deck. Some decks do not have the remote power output, but they have a power antenna output that works just as well.
The remote power is what enables the amplifier to turn off when the car's power turns off.
Either way, it sounds like you have the remote power input on the amp connected to your constant power source.
That would prevent the light from turning off with the car.
If you don't have a remote power or power antenna output on your deck, I would invest in a new one.
However, it is relatively easy to find a remote and a constant power source in your fuse box.
Purchase a fuse tap for a few cents and connect the remote power input on the amp to a power source in the fuse box that turns on and off with the ignition.
Some of the power sources you can find in your fuse box that go on and off with the ignition may be labeled something similar to the following:
ignition, power windows, radio, accessory, etc.
The constant power sources in your fuse box are the ones that don't power off with the car, such as the dome/interior light, power locks, battery, etc.
I hope that some of this helps out a little.

Wiring question

Hi, If I got the specs right, your amp is a 4 channel hence the 4 RCA inputs. Probably the simplest would be to feed the 2 X RCA out of the deck to the 1 & 2 RCA in of the amp. This amp has also a line out, feed the amp's lineout back to the 3 & 4 in. This way, all four channels get same input from the deck and you will have identical power to all 4 speakers (front & rear). An afterthought is to also use the 4 outputs of the deck (since they are there anyway and it is not a good tech practice to leave outputs without load/speakers) and connect 4 mid-range or 4 smaller speakers. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Auxilary RCA inputs have no volume control

Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier. If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).
