What kind of cable can I use if I don't have the 4 gauge?

I have a 600 watt amplifier, which I want to hook up to my car, but I can't find the red cord I had running from the battery to the trunk. Would it be possible to use a thick extension cord instead of having to run out and buy the one I had? Because I don't have a lot of money, and I don't understand exactly what kind of cable I should get.

Please help.

On your amp, there should be a switch (on the side probably) that has "LP", "HP", and "FULL" or "OFF". This is a switch for the low pass/high pass filter. Switch it to "LP" as this will allow only low frequencies to go to your subs, what you want. If you don't have that switch, go to an audio store or online audio supplier and get either a low pass filter, band pass filter, or a cross-over, and follow the wiring diagram that comes with it to filter out the high frequencies before they get to your subs.

It sounds like it's going into protect. To be sure it's not the wiring, disconnect all speaker wires from it. If the light still goes out, check the DC voltage on the B+ and remote terminals. Place the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amplifier. If the voltage remains above 11 volts as the amp tries to power up, the output transistors are almost certainly shorted causing the amp to go into protect.

SOURCE: 220 watt car amp -- 8 or 10 gauge amp kit?

when in doubt go bigger, you might want to get a bigger amp down the road, so its better to not have to buy another wiring kit later.
and the bigger the wire the less line loss you will have so your amp will sound and perform better.

You need to get another amp for your sub. I would say if you want good quality go for MTX because I have had amps from MTX and never had a problem. what you need to know is look at the fuses on the amp if there are 3 of the 25 amp fuses on there then it should push out about 750 watts but on MTX they under clock the amp so it will push about 800 at 14.4 volts for that you will need a 4 gauge wiring kit with a 60 amp fuse in the fuse link. As far as your other amp hook up the speakers and tweeters to that but be sure to tune in down and you would need a 8 gauge wiring kit. I hope this helps you.

I'm running 8 gauge wire for battery cable and ground cable....my amp.is a momentum 600 watt...2 channel. ....my fuse is blowing every time I hook up either cable...


First of all, what size fuse? Check the amp and see what max amperage is, and insure your fuse is that size. Secondly, I suspect either a blown speaker or blown outputs. Disconnect the speakers from the amp and see if the fuse still blows. If it does, either you are hooking two wires up improperly, or your outputs are toast.

I have a dub audio 2502 amp, do i use 4 or 8 gauge wiring ?


Despite the fact that they claim that the amplifier is 500 watt RMS if you look at the fuse it has on it, which should be one 30Amp fuse it means that the max that you might get out of this amplifier is 300 watt RMS. So an 8 Gauge cable will be more than enough for it. However, saying that, using a 4 gauge cable will not harm it in any way. what you should check before buying a 4 gauge cable is if it will actually fit in the allocated 12V terminal.

When i hook up my 750 watt inverter to my truck do i need to install a isolator or inline fuse? or just connect the 4 gauge battery cables directly to the battery and the inverter?


Yes, inline fuse as close to the battery as possible. If 4 gauge wire were to ground out without fuse, would most likely start a fire or at least damage other existing harnesses (depending on routing) before a person could disconnect battery.

Alpine pdx 1.000 keeps cutting out


You are going to want to make sure all your power wires and grounds are 4 gauge as well as the wire leads to and from the capacitor-4 gauge also. make sure you have a very good ground - the power wire from the battery should hit a distribution block-from the dist. block a 4 gauge should go to the capacitor another 4 gauge to the mono amp and another to the 4 channel amp -every component should have a good solid ground even if you have to bust out a grinder and a drill and some self tapping sheet metal screws and go nuts on it- see if that helps you

What fuse do I use for a 600 watt car amplifier

You will need a 6 Gauge wiring kit with a 50amp fuse to the battery. You can verify this by looking at the kits being sold on the internet for 600 Watt car amps.

The only thing that hooks to the stereo are a remote cable should be labeles on the amp. and the rca cables (red and whites) the different channels go to different sets of speakers.right to right left to left. make sure your amp is grounded well or you'll throw the fuse. Hope this helps if you have questions contact me.

Amp stoped working


You need to run a larger power/ground cable. If you are reading low, you are not getting the kind of voltage that the amplifier requires to run, you may have been fine before adding the other products but if you wired them all to the same power wire (say an 8 gauge) you'd encounter problems. You should probably use a 2 gauge or at least a 4 gauge power kit.
