Place the amp where you are going to permanently mount it. The cap. should be as close to the amp as possible. Run the positive cable from the pos. terminal of the battery to the pos. terminal on the cap. Then from the cap's pos.terminal run a cable to the pos. terminal on the amp. Dont install the fuse into the fuse holder just yet. Make sure you place the fuse holder at most 10 inches or closer to the battery. Find a good ground point to run the negative cable to the cap. make this one as short as posible, use any good solid metal part of the car's chassis or bolt that runs into the body. Run another ground cable from that piont or nearby point to the amp's negative terminal. run the rca cables from the back of the head unit outputs to the inputs on the amp. Then run the small gauge remote wire from the amp remote output from the head unit to the remote turn-on terminal on the amp. run your speaker wires from your amp to your speakers. Install the fuse, it will spark a tiny bit when installed, its normal thats just your stiff cap and the caps inside your apm charging. Usually you charge the cap before you introduce it into the system to prevent that spark but a cap that size doesn't create a huge spark. good luck

Hifonics colossus-ltd dual monoblock amp does not have much output, running a cerwin vega stroker dual 2 ohm sub wired 4 ohm load bridged


Bridge at 4ohms your only getting 600watts rms. You will need to bridge at 1ohm (parallel) and adjust the gain accordingly. This will give it 1600 watts rms. If you would of had a dual 4ohm sub, then you could of bridged it at 2ohms mono, but you can't you have to go either 1 ohm or 4ohm. I believe it's not getting enough power.

Hot Amp!!!


I'm having trouble visualizing exactly how you have it set up. You said that the amps are "grounded through the amp" but I think you meant they're grounded through the cap. I don't think that's the cause of your problem, but the cap and amplifiers really should be grounded separately. There's no reason to run the grounds to the cap instead of directly to the chassis. It seems more likely to me that the problem is related to your speaker wiring. I'm not clear on how your speakers are wired either; I can see that you've kept the speakers on factory wiring, and connected the amp to the factory wires. But I don't understand how that translates to having only one set of wires for both speaker sets. We'll leave the tweeters out of it; if they're wired through a crossover, then they don't have a serious effect on the impedance. However, any way you look at it, you've got two 4-ohm speakers wired together to a bridged amplifier. Most 2-channel amps aren't designed to be connected to load impedance under 4 ohms when they're in bridged mode. If your speakers are wired in parallel, then the load impedance at the amp is 2 ohms. Having too low a load impedance is the most common cause of amplifier overheating. My advice is to re-wire the speakers so that one 5x7 and one tweeter (together with a crossover) is connected to each amplifier channel. Don't run the amp in bridged mode. Even in this configuration, I'd be amazed if your 5x7" speakers are really rated to handle 310 watts RMS, which is the per-channel power rating of your amp in 2-channel, 4-ohm mode. It sounds to me like you've got too big of an amp for the job.

Can i use a 150watt wireing harness with a 20 amp fuse for this model?


Depends on the wattage of the amp, if the amp is 150 watts then yes use a 150 watt amp kit, but i'd go with a 30 amp fuse. Basically just buy an amp kit rated at the wattage of the amp, my preferred brand is street wire, but if you're on a budget buy Scosche. Good Luck, if you have any more questions please ask...

What fuse do I use for a 600 watt car amplifier


956
You will need a 6 Gauge wiring kit with a 50amp fuse to the battery. You can verify this by looking at the kits being sold on the internet for 600 Watt car amps.

220 watt car amp -- 8 or 10 gauge amp kit?


when in doubt go bigger, you might want to get a bigger amp down the road, so its better to not have to buy another wiring kit later.
and the bigger the wire the less line loss you will have so your amp will sound and perform better.

Speaker amplifier calculation


for $85 i can sell you an Almani 900 watt 2 channel amp i would stay way away from those 3 brands they are all really poor quality and i can get you any major name brand cheaper.
I can get you a hifonics 4008 amp (800 watts peak 100 watts per channel rms) for $100 shipped with full factory warranty. you find an amp you like and i will get you a price. I am a factory wholesale distributor for most brands.
