High input amplifier installation

Hey guy! If you just bought that amplifier, whatever make and model, there should be instructions that came with it to hook it up to your radio or deck and any speakers you are to use!

My amp only powers on it gives no power to my subwoofers

1st check to see if the RCA's are plugged in if they are make sure the speakers are plugged in. Check at the amp and at the sub Alson check the input voltage switch. JL Audio Slash series amps have a high/low switch for your input voltage. And the last thing I can think of is if your using a remote wire to turn the amp in make sure the signal sensing switch is off. If your not using a remote wire turn it on....Hope this helps

Were do i plug in the RCA cables from the amp to a factory radio? do i need any sort of adapters if my stereo dose not have inn or outputs? and where do i hook up the remote from the amp?

Most factory radios do not have RCA outs, but most will have a remote wire. Usually used for a power antenna option. Your remote wire from the amp could be hooked to the power antenna wire on the factory radio and it would work great for turning on the amp. As for the RCA inputs on your amp, you will not be able to use them without RCA outs on your factory deck. Although most amps offer a high level input alternative and will use the standard speaker level out on your factory deck. This means the rear channel speaker wires from your factory deck will be used to feed the signal to the amp. You will have to check the instructions and manufactorer recomendations for the amp you are trying to hook up. Have fun and good luck!

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)

PINs for high level input

Hello gmb_66,

You did not specify exactly which Jensen amp you have. None of the Jensen PowerPlus series I found had high-level inputs. You can go here and select your amp to download the manual. They should also have the connector for speaker inputs.

Most amps that have both high-level and RCA inputs allow you to use one or the other, but not both at the same time. If your head unit has RCA ourputs, those would be the ones to use, because they generally provide a cleaner signal to the amp with less noise.

Hope this helps.

Input plug

Unfortunately, I don't find any websites selling the connector/plug. You might have to call Maxxsonics (manufacturer of Crunch amps) at 1-847-540-7700 or email them at

Factory stero to amp

If the amplifier has inputs for a high level signal, you unhook the wires going into the speaker and plug them into the amp, then hook the outputs up to the speakers. If the amp only has rca inputs, you need to also buy a line level converter. Then you unhook the speakers, hook the wires up the the converter, then hook the converter up to the amp, then hook the amp up to the speakers.

Please leave good feedback!

Amp problem

I don't know of a surefire test, but i had an ov2-400 gothic amp that i bought used and it had the same issue, or at least very similar. first thing to do is hook it directly to a known good source, if that fails, use the high inputs.

the fix for mine was to disconnect the amp completely, open the case, and spray everything down heavily with CRC QD Electronic Cleaner, it costs about 5 bux at any autozone and is extremely handy. this fixed the issue, i then sprayed the connectors down with rid-ox and used an rca adapter as a cleaner (ie inserted it into each socket while wet and rotated it a few times), also installed a new set of rca cables just to be on the safe side.

in my case the amp was stored in a trunk and had something either spilled or condense in it, a good cleaning of the board took care of the problems and it has been working now for the past 4 months.

hope this helps,

Hi, Jensen is under different ownership from when your amp was made, so it's unlikely that you'll find a replacement plug for the high-level input. A high-low converter is also called a line-out converter. It's a device that connects to the speaker wires and changes the signal to a low-level RCA connection. This allows you to use the amp's RCA plugs with your speaker wiring (through RCA signal cables). A line-out converter should be available any place that sells car audio accessories.
