Hi the RMT is short for remote and is connected to a 12v feed taken from the remote output from the cd player, it provides the 12v needed to turn the amplifier on when required & turns it off when the player is turned off. Do not connect this to a permanent 12v feed as the amp. will be on all the time & you will have a flat battery every morning! Cheers, acbva.

How to connect wires to amp


Most amps have 3 places where you need to hook up wires to power them. the 1st is a ground wire that at best is 1 foot long and it goes on the ground or negative 12 volt connection then a bolt on the car you may need to sand off the paint for it to work, 2 a RMT or remote wire that is normally in the middle of the power and the ground connections the remote turns the amp on and off so it needs to go to the remote wire on the radio or a ignition spot on the fuse box - turns on with key on and off when you turn the key off , 3 the power wire is hopefully large 4 gauge wire and goes to the + 12 volt plug on the amp this wire has a in line fuse and goes to the battery and to the amp only. RCA wires go from the radio to the amp and are round and just plug in with no screws some factory radios need a conversion kit you can get at walmart for RCA wires. the speaker wires have some sort of mark or line to tell you what to put were like if you put the line on a negative on the amp you need to put the line on the negative on the speaker box to or it will not bass and could hurt your amp. ask me if you need anything else :) and please rate :/

Fused 12 volt power wire from the battery connects to +12V at the amp. Chassis ground wire connects to gnd at the amp. Switched 12 volt power wire (accessory) (remote turn on from after market radio) connects to rmt at the amp.

I do not know the steps to take to program my Sony Video (RMT-V306) remote to my Toshiba television.


To program your Sony RMT-V306 remote:
  1. Set TV_VIDEO switch to TV
  2. Turn on television to be programed
  3. Press & hold the I/O (Power) button
  4. Enter TV code (Toshiba = 07)
  5. Release I/O button
  6. Press I/O to turn off TV
If you have a different brand TV, you can get the code from Sony's e-support site here.

  • Remember, when changing batteries you will need to reprogram remote.
  • The RMT-V306 will not control all functions of your component.
  • Although not common, there may be some components the RMT-V306 cannot control.

No power no sound


this may be because there is no signal going to the RMT terminal on the amplifier. try connecting a +12v line, this line tells the amp to turn on. it is normaly connected to the header unit of the car so that it will turn on the amp when the unit is powered on.

Trying to hook my amp up in my car, I already have everything but the main power supply which is the wire to the battery.I was wondering how would i do that the right way?


the car amp needs to be wired using a +12 power, ground, and +12v signal (rmt) cables.  the +12 volt cable needs to be connected from the posative terminal of the car battery to a fuse (the right size should be written on the amp somewhere) then to the +12v on the amp. the ground cable needs to be connected to the negative terminal of your car battery. the RMT is the more complicated one, this needs to be connected to the header unit or the ignition switch. if you look in the instructions for your header unit (the unict where you insert CD's or tapes etc) this should explain whewre exactly to connect this cable. or you can connect it to the terminal on the ignition switch which becomes live only when you turn the key, should be the third one in. this line basicly tells your amp to turn itself on when it recieves a 12v current. you can also wire it up to a manual switch directly from the battery by connecting another cable to the posative terminal of the battery then to a switch then to the RMT terminal of the amp.

Amp wont kick on


you have to instal the remote wire or it will not work. I'd put in the other fuse as well just in case you have the fuse in the wrong slot or it needs both fuses.

Will not power on


Try taping the ground wire directly to the negative battery terminal, and the positive and RMT wires to the positive battery terminal, if the unit still won't turn on, check for a fuse on the unit itself, otherwise it may be dead on arrival.  If it does work, check all your car fuses, also look for inline fuses on the stereo live wire harness.  Hope this helps
