    The speaker [on the back] has a 2 pairs of negatives and positives. One set is for the sound, which isnt the problem. The problem is the other two, which is the 12v power source...

I have the dual xdv8125 car stereo and i hook all the wires up but nothn comes on. its hooked upto a 12volt dc power converter box. it wont do nothing at all.


Make sure that the DC has more than 3/5Amps rating with good DC to make the set working. Test with a car battery to confirm your connection if not check the speaker connections, the main power, switched power and ground must be in order.

I need a wiring diagram to hook up a set of dual illuminite speakers in my car


Check out www.The12volt.com

They have all kinds of wiring diagrams. Be careful.... Car systems are designed to handle certain number of speakers and resistance (ohms). Hooking up more speakers without the proper amplifiers can damage your cars radio.

I have a dual XIA3145 580 watt amp that keeps blowing fuses


Generally, this indicates that there's at least one shorted output transistor.

Disconnect all speaker wires from the 'amplifier's speaker terminals' and disconnect RCA/signal cables from the amp. If it powers up normally, the speakers/wiring need to be checked. If it still blows the fuses, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.

I'd recommend using two 10 amp fuses. The amp will power up with 10 amp fuses if there is no problem. If there is a problem, there's less of a chance of doing more damage by using the 10 amp fuses.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Started smking


Well, if it started smoking then it could be a few different things. First you need to clarify what was going on at the time it happend. Like, did you have it turned up loud? What are the ohms going to the amp from your speakers, you could have been running it below it's maximum rating for ohms. What kind of setup basicly are you running on it is what I'm asking then I could lead you to maybe the start of the problem or where to start looking. But it sound like you shorted out the power supply or the output transitors or both. Let me know what I asked then I can give more info. I have a degree in electronics and repair car amps everyday, it's what I do as well as collect them and sale them so I can help you. Clarify your request of what I asked then I'll reply.
