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

  • 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.

I need to know how to wire this amp up!

The B+ terminal on the amp goes to the Positive battery terminal with a fuse inline probably at least 60amp for this amp. The GND terminal of the amp goes directly to the chassis of the vehicle (metal) and try to keep the ground 18" or under. The REM terminal of the amp goes to the remote turn on wire from your deck, usually the BLUE wire. Some decks have 2 one for an amp one for a electric antenna. Dont hook it to the power antenna wire or your amp will only work when the radio is on. Won't work with the cd player. Hook the left and right inputs (rca) to your source unit (deck). Hook your speakers to the left and right channels of the amp with the correct polarity (+) (-) . Set the cross over on the amp HP-AP-LP for what ever application you are using it for like subs or components. There is a frequency adjustment for the crossover on the opposite side of the amp. This should be set in accordance with your crossover selector and speaker requirements. The punch bass knob should only be used with a subwoofer application. The left and right gain turn up or down the gains of the amp. (power output) These are set depending on the output voltage of your preouts (RCA) on your deck. A small flat head screw driver can be used. Set them between 1/2 and 3/4 if you dont know but make sure they are the same. Your ready to go. Hope this helps.....

Hooking up system using HI-INPUT amp wires.

This may sound dumb, but are there any other inputs left on the amp? Most amps that i have worked with have a special set of inputs for high input. (by high input you mean speaker level right?) If those exist the obvious answer is to use those. They should be labeled, so just hook them up according to them. You may need a special adapter from the amp manufacturer. If you dont have any high level inputs or any not broken inputs left you have two options. You can either A: junk the amp or B: open it up and solder new connectors back on. (it sounds harder than it really is. There are four large pieces of metal to solder onto the board for a set of inputs)

I wish to know the correct way to connect a Schneider 800w amp Model:spa-9705. What I have is a lead from my deck(marked sub woofer - 1 x red & 1 x black) but at the back of the amp in question it has 4 x...

Hello i_starlin606,

The Schneider SPA-9705 is a 4-channel bridgeable amp. How you intend to use it and what speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) you are connecting to it will determine the appropriate hookup.

If used to drive 4 sets of normal speakers, you would connect your front channels to one set of inputs (usually 1 and 2) and the rear channels to the other set. You would not use the subwoofer outputs coming from the deck.

If used to drive subwoofer(s), you would need two "Y" adapters with a female input side and 2 male outputs. The cables marked "subwoofer" would be plugged into the female "Y" and the male ends would be plugged into the 4 channel inputs on the amp (paired as 1-2 and 3-4). The front and rear preamp outputs on the deck would not be used.

Speaker/subwoofer connections will depend of the number of individual speakers or subs, whether they have single or dual voice coils, and the impedances of the voice coils.

Hope this helps.

Improper function

try hooking up your subwoofers in series. then connecting them bridged to the amplifier. as follows: positive from sub#1 into positive of amplifier left channel.. negative sub#1 into positive sub#2. negative sub#2 into negative amplifier right channel. turn the gain down as this will sound pretty loud.

Hooking the mra-f350 to my highs

You will only need to connect the door speakers to the MRA-F350. In short, the connections will be as follows:

Deck---->MRA-F350 amp---->Door speakers
...................................\---->Sub amp---->Sub(s)

Just make sure you use the optical digital output of the deck to connect to the optical digital input of the MRA-F350 amp, not the RCA preamp connections.

The RCA cables are for leads from your deck to your amp. Assuming you have an aftermarket deck, pull it out of the dash and look at the back. There should be a red out put and a white output for your cables to plug into. They're sometimes labeled left and right to help you make sure you hook up the amp right. If not, just be sure to match them up between the deck and the amp. If you have the stock deck in there, it's unlikely that you'll have RCA outputs, as most stock decks I've seen do not. As for the protection light being on, your amp is most likely shorting to ground somewhere. Be sure you don't have it screwed right to any metal parts of the car, as this can cause problems. Most amps have a section in the manual warning against this and the problems it can cause. Some amp manufacturers don't say anything about that or say that it will be safe, but, as a rule, I always just play it safe and mount it either to my sub box or on a piece of plywood or something that is secured in the car. Also, make sure that the in-line fuse on your power lead isn't blown, and most amps have one or more fuses on the side of them, so check those, too. If none of these things are wrong, then it might be an internal problem and I can't really help you with technical stuff. Hope this helps. Please leave feedback, too.

Wiring question

Hi, If I got the specs right, your amp is a 4 channel hence the 4 RCA inputs. Probably the simplest would be to feed the 2 X RCA out of the deck to the 1 & 2 RCA in of the amp. This amp has also a line out, feed the amp's lineout back to the 3 & 4 in. This way, all four channels get same input from the deck and you will have identical power to all 4 speakers (front & rear). An afterthought is to also use the 4 outputs of the deck (since they are there anyway and it is not a good tech practice to leave outputs without load/speakers) and connect 4 mid-range or 4 smaller speakers. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

My amp is only pushing the left.

Swap the RCA inputs to see if the dead channel follows the RCA input.
