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.....

Can you get me a diagram on electrical hookup?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

I do not know if you have a 3 wire or 4 wire connection. For a 3 wire connection you need 15 AMPS at the breaker box. For a 4 wire connection you need 30 AMPS at the breaker box.

Three wire hookup. Center wire goes to N, the other two wires are hot. It makes not difference witch of these two wires go to L1 or L2. The ground goes to the cabinet.

Check the voltage - With a volt meter between L1 & N = 220V, L2 & N = 220V, L1 & L2 = 240. These readings are general. You may get something like 210V instead of 200V

How do I wire 110v from a 220v box?


You have two wires in the box that will read 220 plus
volts to the ground wire,the box if grounded & to the
white neutral

So pick one of those wires,(black or red ) for your short
recepticle slot & gold screw & the white neutral goes to
the silver screw & longer slot

Put a wire nut on the other 220/240 wire, if it isn't going to be used

Have to ID the breakers for the wires first & know what is on
those circuits.

Will need to change the breaker out if your running a dedicated
120 volt circuit & then you will have an open space you will need
a plastic cover for, when you remove the 2 pole breaker

Need to know how to change plugs & plug wires on


If you have a distributor or just an ignition module with
plug wires, you not only mark them with a ball point pen,
you make a drawing of where things are

You can see the spark plugs,mark both ends of the plug wires
before you start

Draw a picture of the cylinders & look up their numbers
& write it in little circles & have the firing order

The only problem you can have is not knowing what is where,
before you start, so you can replace old or new parts where they
should go

1997 grand prix window won't work


Do you need a new motor

How would someone know that?

You need a wiring diagram or at least
match up the cut wires,solder & heat shrink them

Then diagnose the motor,switches,etc

I buy factory wiring diagrams for all my vehicles
I never approach the vehicle without them
One quick check of what does work,then into
the wiring manual

You can not repair something you know nothing about,
need reference material

Please let me know if you need more help, and identify the amp model as well as the speakers you will connect.

I need to know where the rcas go and what wires go


Red = To battery Black = Earth - Most people wire it to body of car Blue = REM Wire - Remote amp Wire goes to back of stereo so it can trigger amp to turn on
Then AUX L And R IN goes to The stereos AUX out.
After that its done
Unhook your battery before preforming any stereo modifications and remove fuse in the RED amp Wire it will be a big fuse you cant miss it, Case any wire accidentally touch when fitting they don't short .

I need to know the breaker size and wire gauge and number of wires needed for a bosch ae125 water heater


According to the user manual below, it's a 50 amp heater, therefore, you need 6 AWG electrical cable and a 50 amp double pole (220 volt) breaker in the main service panel.

You need two hot wires and a ground wire. The cable would be specified as 6/2 w/ ground. The 2 hot wires in the cable would be red & black or black & black -- these attach to L1 & L2 respectively. ( L = Line )

More info, let me know.
