I think your talking about a line out converter which takes a speaker signal and turns it into a rca signal? if so you need to findthe front speaker wires you can either twist both positives and both negatives together and use one set of speaker wires or just hoo up both sets to the right and lest speaker wires. whites and greens are left and greys and purples are right...then you should just have to plug your rca's into the L/O converter then the input on your amp. Hope this helps!

you have to run power wire and ground wires to setup the amp.
you have to purchase a hi/lo adapter if you have a stock stereo.
like this:

or have a professional do it for you, or a friend that can do it for you. if you have no knowledge in setting up an amplifier you risk burning down your car, hurt yourself or someone else.

Amp color code wire diagram 2002 tahoe


I just built a factory amplifier/crossover bypass adapter for my 2002 Chevy Tahoe Z71 (non-Bose system) . This adapter will allow the full range of audio directly from your head unit to the door speakers. Without this adapter, the factory amplifier will cut out much of the bass / low frequency audio to the door speakers. This adapter will continue to provide an audio signal to the factory amplifier for the rear factory subwoofer and cargo area pillar speakers.


I have posted an article with complete set of step-by-step instructions and detailed photos of the build and installation process.

http://www.savagehomeautomation.com



The article also includes direct links to the exact parts that I purchased on Amazon to build this bypass adapter.


This is what the end result looks like. It is a 100% non-destructive adapter than can be installed or removed from the Tahoe at any time. It just plugs in between the factory wiring harness and the factory amplifier.7_9_2012_1_38_07_pm.png

Good Luck!

Hi I amconnecting r300-4 rockford ampp at home as a test before installing in my car. I have connected 12v dc adapter but the amp's red led glows and amp turn off. Any solution


A DC adapter probably offers insufficient current to power the amplifier. What is the current rating on the adapter? What you need to test an amp on the bench is a 12 volt power supply. If you don't have a power supply, perhaps you could borrow the battery from a car. OK?

How do i take out the factory stereo for a 2008 mazda 6, in order to install an after market amp?

Hi Lo Adapters
Hi/Low adapters are devices that installers use to convert a speaker level stereo to RCA levels so it can be hooked to an external car stereo amplifier. You can cut the speaker wires and hook the hi/lo adapter right up or you can tap onto existing speaker wires without cutting them so the speakers still play while the tap gives you a connection to the hi/lo device for adding something like a subwoofer amp to the existing speakers.... We have hi lo converters in TWO CHANNEL and FOUR CHANNEL configurations and we have them WITH and WITHOUT adjustments.. The adjustable hi/lo converters allow you to fine tune the hi/lo device to match other levels in the car or to make sure the match between your stereo and amplifier is a good match.. The adjustable line converters are the most popular.. We also have some specialty hi lo converters that have special radio plugs on them that may plug right into your factory stereo.
Now you can install an amplifier with your factory radio or install a new radio with your factory amplifier!

How do i hook up the amp wires to the factory stereo and the speaker wires


Amp wires are direct to battery..as far as sound, you need a line level converter to connect to your rear speaker wires (left/right) that sends the signal to the converter and switches it to RCA level outputs. You would then just connect an RCA cable from the converter to the amp and there you go. A converter is $20-$50 depending on the quality you want. The better ones connect to pos/neg and have a metal caseing.

Can't get my amplifier to work.


My homie had the same problem with his escalade they adapted an rca line adapter from the factory wiring to geta signal to his amplifier and it just wasnt hitting like it should so we installed a new deck and plugged the rca cords right into it and boomboom pow it was hittin like a champ-we figured that the stock premium system that was incoprporated into the truck had some sort of an onboard amp that was filtering the bass from the door speakers and which was limiting the bass output to the rca adapter and thus on down the line to the amplifier- so maybe ya might want to look into getting an aftermarket deck and see if that helps your cause-good luck

No sound with USB and IPOD Apline IDA-X100


You connected your blue alpine wire (power antenna) to your blue wire (amplifier remote on) on the BMW harness adapter. You need to undo this, amputate your blue alpine wire (because your E36 has no power antenna) and connect the alpine blue wire with white stripe (remote power) to your blue wire on the harness adapter.

When you switch source from the radio, alpine is shutting off your amplifier through the connected power antenna wire. Since you're not listening to the radio anymore, it sees no reason why it should give it power.

HOW DO I INSTALL A RCA ADAPTER TO MY VEHICLE


There should be a diagram entitled "adding and amplifier to a factory stereo" in the owner/install manual of the high to low convertor. You need to signal tap some audio signal from your front or rear stock speakers in the car and those wires need hook up to the high to low convertor's input side. From the convertor you connect RCAs that go to your amp. In other words find your rear speaker wires and hook them to your adapter then hook up the rca wires

Protection Light irritation


If the amplifier goes into protect when there are no speaker wires connected to the amp, the amp is likely defective. The most likely culprit is shorted output transistors. If it's new, return it to the place of purchase for repair/replacement.
