Hello sharifhriver,

"MTX recommends using a minimum of 4 gauge power and ground cables to get the best performance."

This is direct from Mitek support. The link is to the manual for the TA7801.

Hope this helps.

I would also go with 12 gauge, or maybe 10 even. either one and you will be fine. I hope this helps solve your problem, If it does, please give me a fixya rating. Thanks in advance.

Since the distance is short, you can go with 14 gauge wire but 12 is pretty much the best you can use...

Im replacing the electrical cord on a 1500 watt 12.5 amp 120VAC,60Hz heater.Is 14 guage sufficiant?


14 gauge will be enough provided your breaker is a 15 amp. If 20 amp I recommend 12 gauge wire.

I was testing a new radio to se if it worked. Now the fuel gauge and amp gauge dont work. when I check for power on the radio leads the temp gauge goes all the way up and fuel goes below e. All of the


I would sugest when the temp gauge goes up you are actually earthing the wire for the temp guage. I think you have entered the wrong harness for the wires & you have connected the radio to your guages. Remove radio & reconnect wires where they were before.

No oil problem, pressure goes to zero when idiling, 20 at 70 mph, sensor was replaced


IF you have already checked the actual oil pressure with a test guage and you have already replaced sending unit(sensor), you may a have a malfunctioning guage(GM had a problem with instrument panel, gauges, for these years. You can check the tan and white wire at sender for 5volts, if thats good, you can ohm black wire and white wire to pcm, if thats good, recommend getting access to a good scanner and comparing guage read out to actual pcm data oil pressure.

Can you show me a dieagram or wireing up a amp


jose_v17.jpg
The process is pretty much straight forward for any amp.
This is what you will need to get the job done:
15 ft- 4 gauge power wire (RED) with in-line fuse 3 ft - 4 Guage Ground wire (Brown) 15 ft - 12-16 Gauge Remote wire (Blue) 15 ft - RCA Wires Here are the steps:
  • BATT - (Battery +12v) - This will be a 4 guage red wire that you will run directly from your car battery to this Terminal. Be sure to buy a wire a with an inline fuse. This is the main power supply to your amp. Be careful 12 volts doesn't sound like much till you see it in action. I would do this wire last, last thing you want is a hot wire accidentally touching some bare metal.
  • GND - (Ground Wire) - This is the terminal you will use to ground the AMP. Run a 4 guage wire from this terminal and fasten it to some bare metal in your trunk. Not more than three feet.
  • RCOM /Remote - There will be a small gauge wire from the back of your stereo that will be the remote wire it will be blue, most stereos have this wire labeled. Its purpose is to send a signal to the amp to turn on when the radio is powered on.
  • RCA Wires - The location for these is not pictured above, on the back of your stereo there will be amp outputs. Your stereo will send all your low frequencies (Bass) to your amp using these wires. On the amp you will see where these wires will go. They are essential to have a system.
The best way to go about this is hook up the power, ground, and remote and test the Amp to see if it powers up. I have seen so many of my friends skip this step and they paid for it later. I hope this helps if you need any more help let me know.

Using 12 gague wire on a 250 watt amp blowing fuse


Oh my yes. I would recommend number 4 as a minimum. Use the same size for the ground. Bond it to the body in the best way you can. Use a CAD welder if you know anyone in the pipeline industry.

But ideally, run the biggest guage you can afford. and FUSE IT!! Zero Guage or better, and buy a fuse block and put it at the battery. Otherwise your crash could be a crash and burn.

Gauges


The gauges are powered up via 3 fuses, 10 Amp "Gauge", 10 amp "IG2", and 10 amp "ECU B."

If these 3 fuses are good, there may be the possibility that the wire connector on the back of the panel cluster may be loose.

2.0 Farad Capacitor


The answer is yes, any amount of amplifiers can be hooked up to a cap. Obviously the more amps you hook up to it the less you are going to nodice the difference with the same amout of farads. The only thing that I am worried about is the wiring from your battery to your cap. As long as you have a decent gauge wire running back you should have no problem. And for this instance I would recommend 0 guage, you might be able to get away with 4 but I would highly recommend 0. Over all I would recommend 0 guage on all installs unless you are going small and don't plan on upgrading. I hope I could help

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.
