Hello umbaftroml,

Here's a link to the owners manual: Scroll down to the B4.250.2 and right click "Download Manual".

http://www.lightningaudio.com/scripts/latech.cfg/php.exe/enduser/std_adp.php?p_sid=572kxbvj&p_lva=&p_faqid=154&p_created=1235512138&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9OTEmcF9wYWdlPTE*&p_li=

You'll need some source of 12V DC power which is not available on your home stereo. A 12V battery or DC power supply will work OK. You'll also need to wire in a toggle switch to "trigger" the amp to turn on. Just put the toggle switch inline with a diode for isolation between the power wire and the "remote" terminal on the amp. Flip the toggle on when you need to use the amp.

The speaker connections and source connections are all shown on page 6 of the manual and would in any case, be the same as if you were installing the amp in a vehicle. Be aware that most home stereo speakers are 8 ohms, whereas speakers and subs designed for vehicles are usually 4 ohm or sometimes even 2 ohm. This will not be a problem. you shoud be able to drive 8 ohm speakers, they just won't be as loud because the amp will not produce it's full power into an 8 ohm load. Plug your RCA's into your home stereo's preamp outputs, or if there are no preamp outputs, use the speaker level inputs on the lower edge of the amp.

Hope this helps.

I NEED YO KNOW HOW TO HOOK UP A MICRA FARAD 500K


When I used to do this, I would run the power wire from the battery to the Capacitor and then run power wires to said amp. For the crossover, just run an 16 or 18ga wire to one of the Amps power input instead of running it to the cap if its easier. Not sure what Crossover you have, So check the manual for the correct wire size!

I have a 1000 watt sony explode mx-2165gtx and i have 2 12inch rockferd subs all hooked up in my truck. i turn on the sterio and turn it up just a little bit and it goes into protect mode i cant figure out...


Sounds like you're overloading the amp. Which rockford subs are they exactly? I can find the specs and see if theyre just too much for the amp or you just have to hook em up to the amp different so the amp wont go into protect mode

I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD HOOK UP THIS AMP WITH A HOUSE STERIO?


sorry, its not feasible, your home stereo and speakers are on AC power while your car amp runs off of DC power.

Ow do i hook it up to my home sterio system?


Not really possible, as a car amp requires a remote signal (usually a 'pulse' of 5 to 6 volts), to turn on.

Maybe you could wire up a small homemade battery/switch box to the amp to pride the switch on signal?

High distortion


The head unit may be rated at 200 watts but it cannot produce more than ~20 watts of real power per channel. There's no way that it can drive the high end speakers to a level that will be needed to compete with the subs on a 1000 watt amplifier.

Got a deck...need to install myself


the best way is to buy a wire harness tomatch your cars then all you do is match the colours from the wire harness provided and the one for your car but if you do the wir cutting method then
Yellow is your constant wire
Red is your accessory wire
Bllack is ground after that there will be a orange wir e that is optional hook up to run the sterio with the dash dimmer 2-3 blue wires which you can use for AMP remote wire or elctronic Antena

then there are the White and white with black stripe
Green and green with black strip
Purple " "
Grey " "
are your 2 front and 2 rear speakers
which go where i always for get but when your installing the sterio you can set the sterio to run frount let and then hook the wiers for that speaker up when you fin the right one
