Question about Car Audio & Video
It's common for the voltage source at the radio to be
weak. Thin wiring and corroded connections create resistance in the
power wiring, which results in a voltage drop when the deck's amplifier
requires more current.
The easiest fix is to run a new power and ground wire directly to the battery from your radio. Depending on the length, some 14-gauge or 16-gauge speaker wire should do nicely. Connect the deck's black wire to your battery's negative terminal, and the yellow wire to the positive terminal. Put a 10-amp fuse on the wire near the positive terminal.
If your deck is wired to turn on and off through a key switch or accessory switch, then leave the deck's red wire connected as it is now; it doesn't require any significant current. Otherwise you can combine the red wire with the yellow wire and connect both to the positive terminal.
