There should be one constant live and one live only with the ignition on! Is this correct? Sounds like you have both connected to constant live!

How to hook up the wiring on the crunch 520.5 need to know the gage for power


Hello,
  • I would go with some good 8 gauge. More than that for this amp would be overkill and a waste. Many people thing thicker wire is better but that is not the case. To thick of wire to the power feed can draw to much power and send the amp into protect mode. Also to thick of wire with an insufficient amount of power can actual hamper the amps true abilities.
  • Use stranded copper wire not solid copper wire for the best results of conductivity.
  • Make sure to run a 50 amp fuse inline with the power wire right off the battery. Amps surge and it is far easier to replace a $1 fuse than components inside your amp.
  • Your ground is best served running to a bolt in the floorboard. Using the same size, style and quality as your power wire is recommended.
  • Your remote wire will connect to the remote wire running from the back of your deck. The remote wire enables your amp to shut off when your deck is shut off. A simple 16 gauge stranded copper wire will suffice for the remote wire.
  • I recommend hooking the speakers up using one speaker per channel. I don't bridge amps really. If you want more power then buy a bigger amp.
  • The AV cords will go from your deck to your amp right to right and left to left.
  • That's the way to wire your amp.

Regards, Tony

My Technics SC-HD501. I need advice on speakers and the max range of out put i can get. I want to add two more speakers to my current setup. Whats the maximum wattage i can get? Willl i be able to add...


Looking at the specs for your system, the amplifier only puts out 23x2 watts. That means each speaker right now will get 23 watts (approx.). This amplifier is built to drive the load (the speakers) that is hooked up to it now. If you were to hook up another set of speakers, they would have to be pretty small (similar to what came with the system) with a higher impedance (over 8 would be good). The issue is the increased load/strain on the amplifier with the new speakers. However, if you are using relatively small speakers, with short run of speaker wire you should be allright (most amps have a temp protection built in, if the amp gets too hot it will shut off). To hook up additional speakers use the terminal that are there. You will 2 right speakers and 2 left. Place both positive ends of the right speakers in the positive terminal on the back of the amp (twist the ends together, if you must) and both negatives in the negative terminal, for the right speaker, on the back of the amplifier. Do the same for both left speakers.
In summary, you can probably hook another set up small speakers (which are only a short distance away from the amp) without much problem assuming you wont be pushing the amplifier to its limits all the time. You may find the amplifier lack punch or looses some sound quality though as the amp is not designed to be driving and controlling that many speakers.
Hope this helps

Could a ground stop your woofer from working?


First check the speaker wire from the amp to the sub, see if it's connected right. Second check the rca cables that goes from your amp to the back of the deck. I f both wires are still connected fine try to replace the rca cables. If it still doesn't work the rear out put at the back of your deck, where the rca's are connected are bad. FYI deck is bad.
