Don't no how to hook it up ...


Instructions
Hook up an RCA patch cable
between the output of your car's
stereo receiver and the graphic
equalizer's RCA inputs. Use
stereo cables with male RCA
connectors.
Connect the equalizer's outputs
to the RCA inputs of your
amplifiers. How many cables you
need will depend upon the
number of amps in the system. In
most cases, you'll need two to
three to connect the equalizer to
the inputs of your amplifiers.
Hook up the equalizer to 12-volt
power. Use the same power
connections you used to connect
your amplifiers and receiver. The
equalizer's yellow wire should be
connected to a constant power
source, one that is not switched
off with the ignition, and the red
wire (not always present) to a
switched 12-volt power source.
Splice the wires by stripping the
insulation off the end of each
wire and then soldering or
crimping them together.
Connect the equalizer's blue
"turn-on" lead to the receiver's
blue wire. This turns the
equalizer on when the receiver is
powered up.

Amplifier has a phone jack for remote. Stereo has a blue wire for remote. Do these two need to connect to each other, or can I just run a phone cable from the amp to a remote switch mounted up front. ...


No. That port is for your gain(volume) control switch for the amp(it should have been included with the amp). Connect the stereo's blue remote wire to the amp's remote input that's next to the batt. input and ground input. Here's a link that showed me the pics plus a pic of the switch with the phone jack cable. Copy and paste. Good luck. http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_2553_Volfenhag-ZX-8300.html

Wiring


The remote turn on should be connected to the blue wire of the stereo. this wire is used to turn on the amp on ly when the stereo is on. If you connect this wire to a +12 constant, the amp will stay on all the time.

Led light turns red and the turns off but the amp


In Car Amplifiers have 3 main power wires:
Live +12v (Fused wire direct from the + side of the cars battery)

Ground (Direct to car earthing point (anywhere cleaned of paint for good connection)(I tend to use boot lock)

Remote (This wire should be connected with the switched live wire coming from the back of the stereo, this is Only live when the cars ignition is on)(there should be 2 power wires coming from the stereo usually red live +12v and yellow switched live, depending on the cars original wiring, try moving the remote wire from where you have it, to the other live wire

Hope this is of some help

Power light on the amp goes on after 5 sec off ultra linear 1200


If you run the remote from the battery you will need a on/off switch. Sounds like the amp is overheating. Also, I don't understand bridge the remote and power. They should be seperate going into the amp.

POWER


Have you connected the remote wire from the stereo to the amp? assuming it has one.
If the stereo has not got a remote wire you can link it from the positive 12 volt on the amp to the remote connection on the amp, usually it's in between the ground connector and the 12volt.

Connecting remote cable to other port from the car stereo


You can tap the amplifier's remote wire into the accessory power lead at the back of the head unit. On most head units this is a red wire. Doing this will make your amplifier turn on and off with the key switch, rather than the deck power.
