I included a link which provides information on the hook up. It is not specific to your car, but it may have some good pointers.
You haven't specified what problems you are having with the hook up. If you provide a detailed description of the problem , I may be able to help further.

How hook amp up to a oem integration SNI-15 line output convertor


The amp needs an RCA input to communicate with the head unit. SOLDER the wires that come out of the head unit for the front speakers to the SNI-15, making sure that the polarity and right/left is correct. Do this for the front and rear speakers if you have a 4 channel amp. Cut the wires if you add new speakers and run the new wire from the speakers or sub box directly to the amp, or skin back the wire insulation and tap on if you use the factory speakers :( then plug your RCA cable from the SNI-15 to the input side of the amp. Don't forget that most new cars have their own amp so you might have to locate it and bypass the speakers wires around it. Don't make a mess in case you have to put everything back to factory for resale. You can avoid all this by installing a new/modern head unit with built in RCA outputs for front, rear, and sub woofer. I hope this helps. Ray

2004 Tahoe Line Output converter


You can get the signal wired behind the radio or if it is more convenient you can tap into the rear speaker wires in the colums in the rear of the vehicle which will make your rca's from it be shorter to the amps in the rear.

Put in a new breaker box, wiring to furnace is not right. There are 3 wires coming from the furnace, a red wire, a brown wire and a white wire. The white wire is the ground, the red wire is attached to a...


I don't know where you live, so I don't know if there is a color code used like there is here, in Massachusetts. Typically, white is neutral. Neutral and ground are not really interchangeable terms to electricians - but often are to homeowners. Read this until you understand:

1) If you have two separate bars in your panel, and one has only white and / or gray insulated wires connected and the other has only bare or green or green and yellow striped insulated wires connected, you must connect the white wire to the bar with the white / gray wires. Do NOT connect it to the bar with bare / green insulated wires.

2) If you have one or more bars in the panel, and both have a mixture of white / gray and bare / green wires, and the bars are screwed directly into the panel back - or have a jumper connected between them, you should be able to connect the white wire to any available terminal on the bar(s).

Colored insulated wire (not green, white or gray) usually means it is not neutral or ground. In an electrical panel, most times if it is not neutral or ground, it is "hot". If there are two colored (hot) wires and a single white or gray (neutral), the white goes to neutral bar and the hot wires go on adjacent circuit breaker terminals - in this case, a 2 pole circuit breaker.

Your gas or oil fired furnace likely operates on 120 volts (hence the white wire for neutral), while the AC compressor and blower is probably 240 volts (hence the need for the second colored wire). You may need to connect these two hots to one "2 pole circuit breaker" for the AC to work.

A typical 2 pole circuit breaker has two handles tied together - and internal connections.

Look at the wires to get an idea as two what size breaker they need to be connect to - #8 copper 40 amps, #10 copper 30 amps, #12 copper to 20 amps and finally, #14 copper to 15 amps. If you are unsure, and my background on the way things should normally be do not jog your memory, STOP. call an electrician and have it connected correctly and safely.

How Do I Wire An Amp To A Factory Stereo Without Rca Jacks


Hello jon101478,

Purchase a line output converter (LOC) such as the PAC SNI-45T shown here. Tap the LOC inputs into your rear channel speakers and run RCA's from the LOC to your amp. The unit shown in the link also has a trigger wire that you connect to the remote terminal of your amp. You can get a cheaper LOC and just run a switched 12V source to the amp if you wish.

Hope this helps.

Hooking up system to a factory infinity sound system in a jeep grand cherokee.


Tap into a signal wire (rear speaker wire) using a line level converter.
These convert the High level speaker wire output into low level RCA output that is accepted by your amplifier.
c5b61ef.jpg Get a good one Pacific Accessory Corporation (PAC) sni-35 is the best IMO.
The TRUNK-LOC is the SAME as the SNI-35 - but it incorporates a voltage sensing input - so you dont need to run an additional turn-on wire. The voltage is sensed through the speaker wire - and it turns on the amplifier.

Then you will need a fused power wire from the battery,
Ground to chassis, and remote turn on lead (if you use a standard line level adapter).

An amplifier installation kit will give you everything you need to add 1 amplifier (except the converter)
