How do i install amp


Hi. First find a place to mount your amp. You must run a cable for the of the battery directly to your amp and place a fuse in line, by the battry. The ground cable must be as short as possible. Then run your rca cables from your radio to the amp and a single cable to use as the remote cable. Now connect your speakers. Make sure go's to from amp to speakers. Depending on your radio, but most of them have a blue wire in the radio harnes, it is the remote wire. Now connect to the remote wire you ran and to the amp. Plug in your rca cables and you are ready to play. Any problems you can email me on faisal-duffin@mtn.blackberry.com

I wanna put it into my car myself but dont know how and was hoping for a lil instruction


you will need a amp install kit witch comes with a 15 ft patch cable power line for amp and a blue line for remote. these wires run from the radio to the amp. The blue wire is called remote it turns the amp on or off depending on the radio state. the patch cable is rca jacks on both ends the back of the radio should have the female part of the rca jacks hanging from it. The other end goes into the amp. and last but not least the heavy red wire will go from the battery to the amp usually there is a fuse holder that you need to put between the battery and the amp. As far as grounding just ground the amps negative to the car chasis some where.

Good Luck Hope this helps

Do not know how to connect my kappa 60.5cs to my pioneer cd player do they have to go through an external amp?what do i do with the power plugs on the oppisite side why are there 2 per speaker


You need to run RCA cables from the CD player to the CD or AUX input on your amp / receiver unit. If you have a standalone amp, you need some way to control the volume. Basically, if you have a volume control on the front of your amp, you're OK. If not, you should also have a preamplifier that the CD player feeds first.

From the amplifier, then, a single pair of speaker outputs feeds a single pair of inputs on your speakers. The reason for two jack sets on the speakers is for "bi-wiring" or "bi-amping", not necessary for basic stereo reproduction.

So -

CD red/white RCA out -> preamp/receiver red/white CD/AUX input. Amp speaker output (red + / black -) to one red/black input pair on the speakers. An input on the speaker is side by side...

Keep the red to red, black to black when connecting the speakers, or you will wind up with poor sound and weak bass.

You will need a line level converter for starters (takes speaker level signal and converts it to line level/RCA signal) you connect this to the speaker left/right wires and it has a RCA left right on other end to connect and run to your amps, (you need this box because factory radios don't have RCA outputs on them) At that point all you have to do next is run the power/gnd/rem for your amp and then speaker wires to your front/rear speaker and then sub (if using). You can use one of these converters for your front/back speakers so you will still have use of your front/back/left/right fading options. make sure you disconnect th factory plug/harness at each speaker since the amp will be powering them and you will run speaker wires to each speaker. If you only want one converter it will be on your front channel and your sub will be power by the front. (you will fade to front for more/less sub bass unless your amp has a separate volume/bass control). If you want your sub to fade with rear speakers you will need to install another converter off of the rear speakers. Found a site with some photos that may help you with your project.

2000 mustang convertable amp problems


Are you sure the amplifiers are trashed? Have you checked the fuses? A reputable car audio shop could help for a fee of course, but it may be worth the price. It's odd that (all) the amps would malfuntion simultaniously unless someone unqualified messed with the wiring or the radio has a defective trigger wire (turns the amps on). You'll be sadly disapointed with any new radio without the factory amps, especially with the convertable ... I strongly suggest getting the amps (the factory system) working again.

Unwanted bass coming out of my subs


there has to be sumthn hooked up wrong bc i have had same problem with my 12' subs but it was simply a matter of my rca jacks but sense you have checked them try rewiring the speakers if that does not work then your rca module may be burned out within the amp..iso then check the amp by taking the cover off and making sure nuthn is burned on the inside.or if any wires are loose or touching.

OEM gm stereo


If your amplifier has what they call High level inputs (basically inputs on the amp that you run the speaker wires from your radio into), you can splice wires from where the connectors are on your rear speaker(s), still leaving the speaker hooked up, and use those as an input into the amp. If your amplifier does not have high level inputs, a convertor is available to turn an audio signal from your radio output speaker wires ( spliced in just as above, leaving the speaker hooked up), into an rca output jack. Or the best thing to do would be to buy another say 2-4 channel amp w/high level inputs and rca inputs and outputs, and run your rear speaker wires into the amp. Then you'll be able to run the rca cables out of that amp and into the sub amp, and you'll have the new amp to power your rear speakers or rears and fronts. That would be ideal. But, A convertor is your best bet. Got em at best buy, circuit city, etc. Hope this was helpful.
