Re: Mount Car Audio
You can get an electrical schematic from a chassis manual for that model Camaro from Chevrolet, which will detail the pin-out (wire location on the multi-wire connector(s) that plug into the back of your radio); but it will cost about $100 or more. It would be easier to trace / detect the wires on your own. If you know how to use a test-light and can wire a radio to work temporarily, it will be a breeze. First identify the power source, which is usually red, the igniton feed is usually yellow or grey, the ground is usually black or brown. There will also be one wire leading to the radio from your dimmer, which you can identify by turning your dimmer switch to dim and bright while testing all the leads until you find the one that dims and brightend your test light. After nailing those down, the only thing left will be the five or six speaker leads. There will be one or two ground leads and four speaker leads (if the car has six or eight speakers, the extra ones are branched, which is sometimes obvious on the connector, because you'll see two leads attached to a single pin. If you need further instructons or run into another snag please let us know.

you will need a amp install kit witch comes with a 15 ft patch cable power line for amp and a blue line for remote. these wires run from the radio to the amp. The blue wire is called remote it turns the amp on or off depending on the radio state. the patch cable is rca jacks on both ends the back of the radio should have the female part of the rca jacks hanging from it. The other end goes into the amp. and last but not least the heavy red wire will go from the battery to the amp usually there is a fuse holder that you need to put between the battery and the amp. As far as grounding just ground the amps negative to the car chasis some where.
you sound like you have a loose wire if your using the stock head unit you must of had to conn.alot of wire go back through follow from the head unit.If I were you get a audio control x-over.it will kick up the pre amp power.
12v- red wire runs to your battery, recommend 4ga remote - blue wire run to a accessory wire or a remote turn on at the radio ground - black wire connect to bare metal, recommend same size wire as the power.
Rca - connect to head unit or a Hi-level converter if you have a stock radio.
speaker wire- connect to your sub 2ohm or 4ohm depending on your setup.
some people like to hook up thier cd player up to direct power by twisting both power wire together. this will cause your cd player to come on at any time with out a key, so in your case almost sounds like your remote wire is hooked up to a constent power source maybe double check bout the wiring on the head unit, if it is ok might wanna have it checked out by a local AUDIO dealer

Make sure you run the Positive wire from battery on one side,which is normaly the drivers side. Then run the remote wire and the spearkers on the passininger side. Feedback comes from two places, Your radio or your amplifiers. If running to amps always run sepert positive wires with 25amp fuses on each. For the ground (8g) and power wires are always best at 4g or 8g wiring. The ground wire must go to a clean spot of metal that is ether the frame or chasey of the car. Plus use metal srew to mount the ground wire. If it is not giving you feedback then thats a good ground which is ok to mount 2 or 3 amps max. If you still hear feedback, it's time to look at the radio and make sure the ground wire is good.
