Re: 1994 ford ranger stereo replacement

Yes you can. As small as a Ranger is, I would recommend running new speaker lines direct from the new amplifier, through the door harness and into the speakers

Install dual xd1222 into a 1993 dodge intrepid

The best way is to get a stereo installation kit designed for your car. It will have the surround for the new stereo to fit where the stock stereo fit. Also, it comes with a wiring harness that you connect the new stereo to then it plugs in to the stock radio plug. Most local automotive stereo stores should carry them.

How to hook up a kenwood amp.kac-5204

All amps are basicly the same. It should be plain as day where the speakers connect to.
The 12V screw connects to the main power from battery, be sure to fuse that wire and use a proper size wire, thicker is better,I suggest at least 8gauge with 40amp fuse. The GND is ground and should connect to car metal, file paint for soild connection. The REM is remote and connects to the remote of headunit or if you have a stock deck to the acc of car found in wire harness of headunit. Plug in the RCA's to head unit, or get a converter to plug into speaker wires from car if you have a stock headunit.

I dont know how to setup my amplifier to MP3 Stereo...

Just like any other stereo. Get a wire harness for your car and match the wire colors together, tape them or cap them, or best yet soder them. Then run rca cables from the output in the back of the stereo to the amp. The run a remote wire (bue with white stripe) from the stereo to the amp remote terminal. Hook up the amp normal. let me know.

Where is the amp located for 1997 ford explorer. I am trying to install an aftermarket radio. I have the harness that I need, but where is the amp and the antenna lead tuner box located in the vehicle?

right side above the rear wheel well -you have to remove the panel which has fasteners everywhere and a few screws under the carpet-might have to get a special antenna adapter too- ford premium stereos are weird like that-good luck

How do i connect a kenwood amp to my 2003 bmw m3 with a stock hk system and head unit? i just need to kno where to connect the amp to the car radio

You will need to connect your speaker outputs from the head unit to the high power inputs on the amplifier. If the amp only has low power inputs(rca jacks) then you will need to get a device that lowers the output signal from the radio so the amp can be connected. The red wire will go to the switched power. The yellow will go to constant power. Black goes to ground. Now the blue wire is the signal the amp gets from the stereo to turn on. Your stock stereo will probably not have this ability so you will have to hook that wire to the switched power. Your amp will come on whenever the key is on...even if the stereo is off. If your stock stereo has a wire that sends out a power signal when it is turned on you could try that for the blue wire. Just make sure you have the negative battery cable on the car disconnected so you don't short out your vehicle's electrical system while installing the amp.

Hooking up amplifier to stock radio in Lexus ls400 1991

Hi Robin, I think I may be able to help. The instructions are referring to an aftermarket stereo and not the factory one. Most aftermarket stereos have a blue wire that runs either the power antenna or an accessory that turns on with the radio(amp, eq, power crossover,ect.) As far as the RCA cables, once again, most aftermarket stereos have RCA outputs for an amplifier. Factory ones don't.You can go to Wal-Mart or ABC warehouse and buy a wire harness just for this particular application and then all you do is plug the harness into the factory harness, everything is all pre-wired so there is no guesswork involved and no mistakes.

Will my car stereo power 300 watt speakers?

it will power them but it will only push a small amount of wattage to them. something like 45 watts so they won't be very loud but if you run the wires you will hear them. It's beneficial to just invest in an amp you can pick up a 200 watt pretty cheap these days. and you will be much happier with the end result.

Im trying to install aftermarket stereo

it is located behind the stock stereo up in the back farther and it look like a black box. The wires depend on the radio but if its a cd player go to like walmart and look at the radio wire harnesses and look for the one that'll work for your vehicle
