How to connect an boss amplifier

Assuming you have an aftermarket radio. You must remove the radio so you can attache your RCA cables and the remote turn on. Run these down one side of the vehicle back to the amplifier. Run the power wire from the battery back down the other side of the vehicle to the amplifer (remember to place your fuse within 12 inches from the battery connection. You will need to find a grounding point. I recommend removing one of the side carpeted panels to do this. You will be able to find the frame. Make sure to sand around where you will be connecting the ground. Hook wires to the amp (RCA to correct color RCA wire inputs, Ground wire to (-), power wire to (+), and remote wire to it's screw terminal. The other end of the amplifier should have the speaker outputs for your subwoofer(s). Hope this helps. If you need more information visit

I have an eq tis performance teknique icbn/-5eq 5.1 channel pre-amplifer, i need help to how to connect to the stereo

Your amp needs to be connected to your stereo via rca to the rca jacks in the back of the stereo then connect the remote wire to the remote wire in the back of your stereo it should be blue with a remote flag on it. after that you need to ground the amp and run a wire to the positive terminal on the battery. make sure you install a fuse on the wire in between the battery and the amp.

The radio and the cd turns on but no sound comes out after having the battery replaced. The vehicle is a 05 Mercury Mariner

radio runs off two power wires, one full time power and one switched power check to see which is working. turn the key to acc. and see if power stays on with car off, check all fuses. open the hood and look at battery cables, look to see if everything was hooked up right and if there is a amplifer in your car could be a fuse on the line to the amp either next to the battery or next to the amplifer.

Clarion stereo in1997 mercury marquis wiring hook up to amplifer

make sure the speaker wires in the car do not have one side grounded.the output on the clarion is a floating output and cannot be grounded.the best solution is to look at the wiring on each of the speakers,and match them out to the ones on the clarion.the most common colr code is white front left,gray front right green rear left and purple rear right.each speaker has a plus and minus.mixing them up will result in the speakers being out of phase and result in poor bass performance.i would wire the wires directly to the clarion using crimp connectors.the first thing i would do is power up the stereo out of the car to 12 volts,and using a speaker make sure you have sound coming out.the yellow wire which is the clock/memory is a must to be connected to constant 12 volts or no sound can result

Sony Home Stereo Fuse

When the wires touched, the output transistors overloaded before the fuse had a chance to blow. The outputs need to be changed. It is possible that the driver stage for the final outputs is bad also, but there is no way to know that without removing the bad outputs. Figure on $25-$45 in parts for this repair.

Car amplifers,,,,kicker amp's RCA jacks!

You could do a couple things if your head unit has all three outputs, then take them and hook them into the inputs. If you have just the front and the rear outputs, hook those to the inputs front and rear. Then hook the output of the 4 channel to the input of the mono block. I hope this helped

If the ground terminal is connected to a ground wire, the ground wire isn't connected to a good ground.
