The xxx 3.0 farad capacitor does not seem to have a remote wire terminal...was wondering how to find and hook up the remote wire.


Caps don't need remote wire. Remote wire goes directly from the deck to the amp, as it turns the amp on. Capacitors main function is to store the power from the battery and pass it on to the amp, thus not needing a wire to turn it on.

Well, I have no idea why you would have two capacitors on a 500 watt amp but, did you charge the capacitors? Have you tried the amp without the capacitors? What size power wire are you using?

Hook a wire from your amp or positive to the capacitor
Hook another wire from your amp - or negative to the - on the capacitor.

My insignia amp wont work


Try removing the capacitor and discharging it with a .5 watt (radio shack) light bulb, and then reconnecting it in the same fashion.(before hooking it back up to the amp place it in line with the capacitor until the cap reads 12v with a multimeter or capacitor display) The capacitor will conduct but not store a charge for the amp if not properly charged before making the amp/capacitor conection. and therefore shut down or not start at all.

Power surge blowing fuses on amp when car is turned on.


the voltage regulator in the alternator or the capacitor is malfunctioning. get a multimeter on the battery when u start the car (before the capacitor) if it reads a large surge (something greater than 14 or 15 volts) then u may need a new amp, if not, then test it on the back end of capacitor to the chassie negative, see if u detect spike there.

You're using the wrong control wire. You're likely using a wire marked antenna control. You need to use the one marked amp control. They are both blue.

How can i get my power to my EQ?


What kind of eq is it? First thing I would do is hook up the +12 and GND to the same place the amp is hooked up. I think the eq is having a hard time getting ample current, therefore shutting off all the way when the bass hits. Caps are good, but second battery and battery isolator are far superior.

Won't Turn On--- Positive, Negative touched


gell...it sounds to me like you may have fried the capacitor...try hooking it up without the capacitor in line,and check to make sure the in line fuse on your power lead is ok( usually in theengine bay) and also that the fuse on the amp is ok too.
