Hooked up my custom stereo in my 1999 300m and there is no sound


Check your wiring.. Also is there a factory amp?? If so did you wire around the factory amp to each speaker? After market radios can not be used with factory amps & must be wired around it. I posted a wiring diagram below for you to check your wiring.

I put an aftermarket cd player in and none of the door speakers work. they are all hooked up on the same factory amp. i have the 2001 lincoln ls v8 with the premium sound system.


the factory radio provides a single to the amplifier but a after market radio is not compatible with the stock radio and you will need a radio replacement interface this is what you need.

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!

What all do i need to hook up three ten speakers with a 1100 watt amp to my factory radio?


you will need to get whats called a line level converter. This device takes a channel from your factory stereo, pads the level down to a reasonable level your amp can take without causing clipping. You can then use your external amp and subwoofers. One major problem with low quality line level converters is alternator hum. Just a warning. Good luck

Were do i plug in the RCA cables from the amp to a factory radio? do i need any sort of adapters if my stereo dose not have inn or outputs? and where do i hook up the remote from the amp?


Most factory radios do not have RCA outs, but most will have a remote wire. Usually used for a power antenna option. Your remote wire from the amp could be hooked to the power antenna wire on the factory radio and it would work great for turning on the amp. As for the RCA inputs on your amp, you will not be able to use them without RCA outs on your factory deck. Although most amps offer a high level input alternative and will use the standard speaker level out on your factory deck. This means the rear channel speaker wires from your factory deck will be used to feed the signal to the amp. You will have to check the instructions and manufactorer recomendations for the amp you are trying to hook up. Have fun and good luck!

Air conditioning condensation and speakers


Check for audio from the radio. Hook up some test speakers and make sure the radio is working. If not then your last stage audio amplifier might be defective. also test you after-market amp by injecting audio into in and see if it is still functioning. If the radio is not working and the after-market amp is then the radio is the problem and its internal amplifier will have to be replaced. If the radio works and the after-market amp does not then the after-market amp will have to be repaired. I would suggest getting this testing done by a professional auto-sound shop, to make sure the proper testing is done.

I hope this helps,

Trying to hook up amplifier to after market 6by 9 using factory radio


You can not connect the speaker lines directly to the RCA inputs of your amplifier. But you can connect them to your amplifier if your amp has a high level input. Most of the time it looks just like the speaker jacks of the amp, but smaller. It will be labeled high level input or speaker input. Sometimes an amplifier will have a jack for a wiring harness just for this purpose. Some amplifiers have them and some don't.

If your amplifier does not have them, you can purchase a line level adapter at most anyplace that installs car stereos. it converts the speaker level to the proper level of the RCA input.
Just follow the instructions on how to connect it.

If you try to connect the speaker outputs directly to the RCA input of the amplifier you will blow up the pre-amp in your amplifier.

I hope this was helpful to you, if so a good rating is always appreciated.

Thanks and let me know if you need more help.

Can't get my amplifier to work.


Any idea how this is all wired up?
I think what they have may used is an 'RF modulator kit' to get the signal from your stereo to the amp. These are commonly used when factory stereo's don't have any outputs on the back of them for adding external amps. Even so, when you unplug the RCA cables there should be no signal coming to the amp & no sound coming out of the speakers/subs that are subsequently connected to the amp either.
