Best buy installed radio & speakers bad reception told by installer factory wired wrong true or false can i get new harness & instructions where & price


Best Buy has a pretty good reputation for installing aftermarket radios and they generally use a new harness connected to the old harness to make it work right.

I would try to have the reception issue fixed by Best Buy before the warranty runs out.

How long ago did you have it worked on?

I'm sure they will make it right if you take it back.

Even, if it requires changing out the radio.

Have them check that the antenna is properly connected to the back of the radio.

2007 galant factory radio amp instal


Run a fused wire from your battery to your amp location. Ground amp to chassis, let ground be no longer than 20 in. For remote turn on wire, run a wire from your fuse box, to your amp and plug it into the R.E.M. slot on the amp. remember to put a switch in the wire somewhere easily accessible from drivers seat so you can easily turn your amp on, and off. If the switch isn't off it'll drain your battery when your car's not on. To attach signal wires, make sure your amp has highlevel inputs, splice wires from your speaker wires, and hook them up to the H.L. inputs on your amp. However, my advice as an audio enthusiast, and experienced installer is get an aftermarket unit. Sound quality is much, much better. Less distortion, better radio reception, much better music tuning ability. A good unit can run you a lot of money but, if your planning on driving this car for a long time, invest in an after market unit, you will not regret it. But if you don't want to then there's your instructions, if you have any more questions, please ask..

Can i connect the amplifier and subwoofer to the built ford fiesta radio


If your amp has rca jack inputs only you will need in-line filters to reduce the stock stereo speaker outputs down to less than 3 watts. If your amp has high power inputs you can use those. If your amp does not have a built-in crossover then you will need to install a low-pass crossover or filter before the amp so the only the bass comes thru or the sub woofer will have major distortion. Another problem is the amplifier needs a turn-on signal for the blue wire and most factory radios do not have one. That means you will have to tie that wire into the switched 12v wire from the vehicle so the amp comes on when the key is switched on. It can be done be done but I don't think you will be very impressed with the sub due to most factory stereos have a limited bass range. Most aftermarket head units have built-in crossovers and sub outputs. They also produce much better sound than the factory unit. So in other words yes you can.

Have stock radio # F75F-19B131-AA its in a 1998 F250 need to know how and if i can hook up one Amp for the two door speakers, and if i can hook up an additional Amp for some subs. Ofcourse if radio can do...


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.

Install two 10" subwoofers in a 2002 grand am monsoon.


The only way to Correctly do this is to Run an External Amp for your Subs. If you continuously run the Subs off of the Factory Amp It will Ruin the Subs and the Amp Eventually. This way you can still Connect the Rear speakers as they need to be. Please Rate my solution, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!
