Re: rockwood detanater amp225 wiring harness
I'm guessing here, but power is usually a red, thick wire. seldom yellow ( old Pioneer) Ground Is usually a thick black wire. Amp turn on blue.(thin) If it isn't, it ought to be. If in doubt don't try it , check with a installer. Fuse at battery!!!!! Sumthin

Most amps have 3 places where you need to hook up wires to power them. the 1st is a ground wire that at best is 1 foot long and it goes on the ground or negative 12 volt connection then a bolt on the car you may need to sand off the paint for it to work, 2 a RMT or remote wire that is normally in the middle of the power and the ground connections the remote turns the amp on and off so it needs to go to the remote wire on the radio or a ignition spot on the fuse box - turns on with key on and off when you turn the key off , 3 the power wire is hopefully large 4 gauge wire and goes to the + 12 volt plug on the amp this wire has a in line fuse and goes to the battery and to the amp only. RCA wires go from the radio to the amp and are round and just plug in with no screws some factory radios need a conversion kit you can get at walmart for RCA wires. the speaker wires have some sort of mark or line to tell you what to put were like if you put the line on a negative on the amp you need to put the line on the negative on the speaker box to or it will not bass and could hurt your amp. ask me if you need anything else :) and please rate :/
Generally if an amp goes straight into protection, the amp is not grounded well enough. Either you should find a new location to ground the amp to or unhook the power wire from the battery, remove the ground wire from the chassis of your vehicle. Strip the paint from the chassis, since it doesn't conduct electricity, and remove any corrosion or copper shielding from the ground connector. reground to a solid metal location Can be grounded to the brace behind the back seat or to the seat belt bolt for best results. An amp draws a lot of power, there it needs to be grounded well. Hook back up your power wire to the battery and see if your issue is resolved.
im not to familar with your amp but iv wired a lot of amps. You should just have your power ground remote and your sound. For your 12v+ You should not use anything less than about a 4 gauge wire fuzed and ran strait to your battery for this hook up your ground wire is to be no futher than a foot from your amp grounded to the vehicles chasis not over painted surface but a solid metal to metal contact with a good fitting for you connection on both ends. Then of coarse your remote which is labeld remote on your amp it is the only power source use to power your amp up and down it both completes the circuit and alows your amp to be manualy triggared with when you car reciever is on this remote wire is very important if you are doing the hook up your self you will want to make sure first that you if you have a factory radio in your vehicle to isolate that wire using a 12v tester. If you have an after market stereo in your vehicle such as a jvc kenwood alpine sony ect then you should have a blue wire with a white stip that is on the exsisting harness. That is your remote amp wire and it will tie in to your amps remote wire to power it up when the reciever is on or power it down when the reciever is off. My names Josh good luck with wiring the amp.
depending on the power consumption of the amp u will need to run a 4-12 ga wire to the positive battery terminal. then u need to ground it with a wire connected to a clean ground like a chassis bolt. next u need preamp outputs on ur deck to send audio signals to the amp. lastly u need to hook up a remote wire to the blue wire in ur cd player harness
Does the new deck have a blue wire for remote and a blue/white wire also? The blue one is for a power antenna and shuts of when playing discs or axillary inputs. The blue/white is for power amplifiers and stays on when the deck is on. Also be sure the remote wire that goes to the amp is not pinched and grounded out to the frame of the car.
