How do i connect the mtx terminator 1200-watt subwoofers and amp to my car ?


If you have never installed an amplifier before take it to a reputable audio shop. Failure to properly integrate into a cars electrical system can result in damage to the equipment, damage to your car or lackluster performance of the equipment. This is especially true if you are integrating into a factory stereo system.

My car stereo was stole they cut the factory wiring harness from the durango i need to know the color codes of the wires please


That's hard to answer cause it depends on how far back on the wire harness they cut. Plus if you have a Bose system or not. I would highly suggest to take it into a stereo install shop to at least check it out but maybe install the new stereo.

There is a wiring color code that all vehicles use but if the wires have been cut to far back they will be different colors. If you have a factory amp then you will have to rewire for the speakers to bypass it.

I added below the color code. Make sure you disconnect your battery before you start wiring anything.

Please note: You can do major damage to your truck computer and other components if you wire it wrong.

Proceed at your own risk

Need to wire stereo in a bmw e 1983 looking for color codes for b


My Advise is to REWIRE all SPEAKERS SEPERATLY & INDEPENDENT From Factory Wiring, as it is Safer to do this than to INCORPERATE Your Sterio Wiring into the Original Wiring, Some Vehicles Use Spicific Wiring to OTHER Components. I'm Sure this is NOT the Answer you WANT But I have Installed more than I can Countof Stereo Systems into Cars/Trucks ,Tractor trailers and Inicialy I Only Ran Into PROBLEMS When Incorperating into Factory Wiring Thus I Refined MY METHOD By Simply Wiring all EXEPT the BATTERY & IGNITION < Key ON Wires. ONE SLIP In INCORPERATING INTO FACTORY WIRING Can CAUSE SERIOUS PROBLEMS/DAMAGE the ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. I Realize that in MANY Vehicles this CAN and HAS Been DONE But at the Same time When you ISOLATE the NEW STEREO WIRING You KNOW EXACTLY what you Have. As Far as Color Codes they CAN and DO VARY from Year to Year and Makes Also. What I am Recomending May be SLIGHTLY more Expensive and Require Some Time BUT the End Result will be Well Worth it. Thank you for your time !

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!

NEED STEREO WIRE COLORS FOR 1988 BMW 735I


red = constant live 12v
brown = negative ground
violet = ignition live 12v
white = electric antenna (rear screen)
the speakers will be twisted pairs, i can not remember which is left and right but the grey stipe and brown strip are negative the others are positive.

If in doubt get a pro to install for you as you could cause damage if you connect wrongly.

I get a pop from the sub when the power comes on.


This is caused because the stereo you have put in, is a high power output, or higher than the factory and puts that extra power into the factory amp systems causing the amp to surge the power to the speaker resulting in the pop sound,most newer cars use a stereo system without an internal amp so as to reduce heat and a external amp in usually under a seat or dash and a high power stereo boost the output of the amp.

Car stereo installation


I had this problem as well. On my harness was a wire for connecting the factory amp. You have to connect the Automatic Antenna wire to the Factory Amp Turn On wire. Should be a blue wire to a blue wire with a white stripe.
