Well, basically... the 12v (+) power wire is fused and hooked to the battery and ran to the amplifier, then run an amp turn on wire from you radio its usually blue with a white stripe (if you have an after market radio) then run the rcas from the radio to the amp and finally tap the ground (usually and cleaned bare-metal on your car close to the amp).... if you give me some more info i can help u further... what is the make/model/yr of your car, what radio do you have, amp, sub, speakers, etc....?

SOURCE: car amp blows 12 volt wire fuse

the wire from your battery is blowing fuses? and you are using 20-30 A fuses? mine has a 100A fuse..look into getting new wire plus my wire is 4 gauge.., 1600 watts is too powerful for a 12 g wire and a 30 A fuse

SOURCE: using 12 gague wire on a 250 watt amp blowing fuse

The wires are not the case(I suppose). But you might want to move to 8 gauge(though 10 could be enough,but in Hi-Fi enough is never enough) , but 6 would be the real thing if it's 4x250W(sinus?) placed in the rear of a car(while the battery is in the front)than this is actually just a FAIR minimum. An upgrade to the battery's ground wire is to consider, too, must be thicker than the actual, so a 4-gauge I reckon?

But back to your question :) What fuse did it blow actually? Is it in the car's fuse box/ Is it inline on the wire between the battery and the amp?/ or is it the amp's own fuse(on the amp) ????

SOURCE: amplifier turns on but not the subwoofer?

Hello thedj3214,

You can find the color codes for a 1999 Buick Regal here. There is no dedicated amp remote wire. Neither is there a power antenna wire.

You could use the 12V "switched lead (yellow) from the radio or any switched 12V lead directly from the vehicle fuse box. I'd wire it through a dash mounted toggle switch so as to be able to turn the amp on and off manually.

The Sony 2150GSX is a 2-channel amp with the speaker terminals on either side. You do not want to ground the subwoofer itself, only the ground terminal should be connected to bare metal on the vehicle chassis or body as close to the amp as possible. The ground wire does not need to be run to the negative battery terminal.

A ground on one of the speaker leads will probably cause the amp not to power up. A ground on a speaker wire usually activates the amps protection circuit, causing it to not operate until the fault is corrected.

Hope this helps.

I'm just assuming that is 220 volt 20 amp The wire that is run is likely a common romex 12-2 NMD-90 Strip the 2 wires put red tape on the white wire as it is no longer a neutral. Hook both wires into a double 20 amp breaker. Put the ground wire onto a ground screw.

How many 100 watt light bulbs can I hook to a 20 amp breaker (120 volts)

A 20 Amp breaker will support 2400 Watts with a 120 Volt line.

120 Volts times 20 Amps (Amperes) = 2400 Watts.

Answer? 24 100Watt light bulbs.

HOWEVER, you should always allow 1 cushion of 100 Watts.
That would be 23 100Watt light bulbs.

(Wait until you add electric motors to the equation. Things start getting a little more complicated)

(I always use 20 amp breakers for lighting. 15 amp breakers for lighting is phased out.

Secondly a 20 amp breaker requires using 12-2 or 12-3 wiring. (12/2, 12/3)
SO does the receptacles.
Therefore 12 gauge wiring is used throughout the house, until you come to the heavier loads )

[ 12/2 = 2 insulated conductors, and one bare copper ground wire.
12/3 = 3 insulated conductors, and one bare copper ground wire.

Remember, with 12/2 the Black wire is ALWAYS the Hot wire. White is Common (Neutral). Bare copper is Ground wire.

12/3 has 3 conducting wires.
One Black, one Red, and one White for the Common. (Neutral) Bare copper is Ground.
Used for 3-way switches ]

Nitro 483 amp where do you hook up the power it has a gnd rmt and +12v what hooks up where

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.

When you hook up the wiring for the pump to the boiler, it is 120 volt, do you hook a ground as well.

Hello, for safety sake, you should always connect a ground to any equipment. I am assuming that you are running #14 or #12 guage wire to the boiler on a 15 or 20 amp breaker. If you are using a 14/2 or 12/2 cable, the ground wire will be included in the cable. Please do install the ground securely as this is for your protection and protection of your loved ones.

Jensen CD-510K hooking a 200 watt amp to it.Need to know what wires need to use to hook it up

rca cables for audio and a remote wire. just plug the rca cables into the plugs in the back of the deck and the remote wire (i suggest buying a thicker (speaker wire size) gauge wire since it allows you to get more power out of the amp) to the blue remote wire coming from the deck. you will also need an 8 gauge power wire (12 inches to 12 feet depending on where the battery and amp are) and an 8 gauge ground wire (no longer than 24 inches).

I have two 12 rockford fosgates p3 hooked up to and 350.2 kicker amp i just got them so i hooked them up and my amp will keep turning on and off

How may ohms are the p3's and how are they hooked up? Some amps won't handle less than 4 ohms bridged. Try running one sub to each amp channel.
Also check power and ground connections.
Useing too small of wire for power, ground can cause the same problem.
