When i hook up my amp my speakers wont play music? ive hooked up my rca cables up but i ont know if you hook it up to the input or output frum the cd player?


you rca hookup, back of cd player is rca out, at the amp it is rca in, make shure you hook up blue remote wire, also make shure you have a good ground if not amp will not turn on. if you run wires make shure you run power wire down one side of car and remote and rca down the other, This will keep all motor noise out of system.

Will my car handle a rockford fosgat 801s power load?


Hello dreww1005,

If your alternator and battery are in good condition, you probably don't need a capacitor. At maximum output, the 801S will need to draw a little over 30 amps at 12.8V. The specifications call for 8-gauge power and ground wiring and a 40A primary fuse. The Vibe's electrical system should be able to handle it OK.

Hope this helps.

Just hooked up fosgate bd1500.1 to 2 JBL gto series 15" subwoofer


Your current alternator is strained and cannot give the required current draw of your amp. Most aftermarket amps have exterior fuses. Try adding these up for a round-about current draw number. I would bet that your amp is killing the availible power from the electrical charging system of your car. You could always go up to a higher fuse, (I run a 200 amp breaker) bu this will only make your stereo work and your alternator fail prematurely. Try searching ebay or go to ohio generator for a stronger output alternator.

Music not playing from subs


Do this for the sub amp...

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

My amp only powers the subwoofer when the radio is on but wont when the cd player is on


The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.

Volfenhag ZX8300 on with radio, off with cd or mp3 player


You're using the wrong control wire. You're likely using a wire marked antenna control. You need to use the one marked amp control. They are both blue.
