I need help installing a rockford fosgate punch 75hd amp in my 2013 ford f150. I ran the power cable but now I'm having trouble finding the radios remote turn on/off lead. Took the dash apart and...


If u are using a factory radio it may not have a remote turn-on (Usually the blue wire on the main connector to radio. and do not connect to any blue wire without checking the voltage) if there is not blue wire (remote) you can connect your amp to the red 12v (accessory) wire which will turn on amp when key is in accessory position and works the same and will not hurt your amp. If u do use this method and a pop is introduced when turning on radio and amp may need to purchase a relay to delay the amp turn on.

Car audio hook ups


when installing a car audio sytem it is always wise to leave the power wire the last thing you hook up.ive seen many brand new amps fry because of people hooking power up to fast,if it sparks your in trouble, amps power wires should always be connect to the amp it self before connecting to the power supply. saves on amps:] And your ground should always be less then 3 feet on an amp the shorter the better!

I need to unlock my car radio in citroen saxo, can u help?


The radio SERIAL NUMBER is required for a code
First remove the radio from the dashboard.
Then post the radio make+model plus all the letters+numbers on any labels,barcodes or stamped in the metal casing.
This information can then be used to see if a code can be calculated

Installing The Subwoofers to the amp... etc.


You should go with a 4 guage power wire kit. If your amp is going in and out
at high volume than that is your problem. 8 guage will work but, if you want
the proper current which is your power from your battery, going to your amp
than I would recomend the 4 guage amp install kit or just the main power
wire coming from your battery. If you would like contact me and I will send you
to a very good sight with all the info you will ever need for car amplifire installation.

How to connect 2 Amps for my car audio system


Hi,

Based on your post, you actually have 2 concerns:
1. Power - Normally this is the +12V straight from the battery + terminal. If the existing power wire from the battery to your old amplifier is capable of carrying the combined current (in Amps) of the current + the new, then it is simply running an extension of the B+ line (usually big red wire) from the old amp to the new amp. The negative/ground is simply connecting to the chassis/exposed metal part of the vehicle.
On the other hand, if the old amplifier uses a rather not so big wire to supply it from the battery, you are better running another bigger wire from the same battery terminal to the new amplifier.
You have to check how much current the amp will draw from the battery and select a wire that is capable of carrying that much current without heating up. Offhand a #8 AWG would suffice for most single amp.

2. "Where does the Line cables go?" If you are referring to the Line INputs of your new amp, they maybe connected to the RCA OUTput (line level) of the old amp (it it's got one). Alternately, if the old amp has only INputs and your new amp has both INputs and OUTputs, remove the RCA connection to the old amp and plug them in to the new amp. Thereafter connect another pair of RCA male cables from the output of the new amp to the inputs of the old amp.
If neither of the new or the old amps has an OUTput RCA female, you may need to use a splitter of some sort. Below is an image of a two female RCA to a single RCA male.

You can hook it up in many ways. The simplest would be to remove your existing RCA connection to the old amp, plug in the double female/1male to the INput of your old amp. Connect the cable from the head unit to one of the female RCA. Connect another pair to the other female and the other end to the input of the new amp.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

No Power


Check with a 12 volt light bulb of some sort.  First test +12 volt  wire to the chassis of the car.  The bulb should light.  Then test +12 volt wire to the ground wire.  If no light then no ground is present.

Over current light comes on.


Over-current lights are often caused by speaker wiring or impedance problems. If you're trying to use the amplifier in bridged mode to both subs, that may be causing the problem; re-wire the speakers so that each sub is connected to one amplifier channel. If you still get the over-current light, disconnect all speaker wiring from the amp and see if it still occurs. If it does, there's an internal problem with the amp. If it doesn't, then there's still a wiring problem with the subs. You may have a defective sub, or a speaker wire shorted against another wire or terminal.
