How to hook up emerson subwoofer sw 03


For powered sub :If your receiver has a sub woofer output on female RCA plug, that is the way to go. If no output you will have to get a speaker line to line output converter to then connect to your subwoofer amp input.

Unpowered sub - just hook up across the speaker terminals for each channel making sure that you hook it up in phase.

How to hook up audio & video from laptop


You can only do that if the TV and your laptop have a VGA connection. I'm not quite sure but I don't think any CRT tv's had a VGA connection. You may be able to get a VGA to RCA adapter though. Make sure the adapter has the right gender though. Such as Female vga in Male RCA out. Good luck!

I am getting engine noise? i have a mono block amp for my bass and another amp for my mids. How do I hook up the stinger SGN20 ground loop isolator?


It goes between the source and the amplifier , I don't know if it will work with guitar pickups, but no harm in trying. Also designed for stereo, but you could try dual mono I suppose. Not sure if that will work either but here are the instructions. You will need 2 mono female Jack to male RCA and 2 mono female RCA to male Jack adapters, (unless your guitar output is stereo in which case you will need 1 stereo Jack to 2 RCA etc. Good luck, it might work but I don't think it was designed for the use you have in mind. Will you let us know how you get on?

I have a turntable with a white and a red male RCA output cable. I am trying to hook it up to a Marathon DJ-1000 amp which has two TRS input channels - Channel 1 and Channel 2. Should I buy a twin female...


If I understand you correctly each channel has a single input in the amp, then yes! white goes into channel 1 and the red plug goes to channel 2 this way your signal will be stronger which translates into louder sound.

I have a 98 mustang with the mach 460 system in it. I am trying to add a subwoofer and amp to the car and i can not find the speaker wire to splice into so that i can get bass out of my memphis audio...


Okay you will not find a wire to splice into. Assuming that you have an aftermarket Head unit, your gonna need to hook those rca cables in the back of the head unit (the red and white female inlets) and run those to the amplifier, afterwhich can you run at least 6 to 4 guage wire (available at walmart) from the amp to the subwoofer. Now make sure you buy a power compacitor to handle the extra juice needed to run that amp, which is alot cheeper than buying an extra battery and running that off your alternator (not a good idea by the way).

1 Answer

4 subs and two amps


I'm not that familiar with the insignia line but If the amps have an "input" and an "output" for the RCAs then run the RCAs in one, Then hook the output of that one to the input of the other. I did this with my 2 memphis 500Ds and it worked great. It also looks better than a couple of splitters, but yes You would just get two splitters with all female connections on them so you can plug 2 sets of RCAs into the one set. Also it doesn't really matter how you hook the RCAs up unless you are going for stereo sound then you would need to make sure the rights are hooked up together and the lefts are hooked up together. I hope I could help.

How to connect 2 Amps for my car audio system


Hi,

Based on your post, you actually have 2 concerns:
1. Power - Normally this is the +12V straight from the battery + terminal. If the existing power wire from the battery to your old amplifier is capable of carrying the combined current (in Amps) of the current + the new, then it is simply running an extension of the B+ line (usually big red wire) from the old amp to the new amp. The negative/ground is simply connecting to the chassis/exposed metal part of the vehicle.
On the other hand, if the old amplifier uses a rather not so big wire to supply it from the battery, you are better running another bigger wire from the same battery terminal to the new amplifier.
You have to check how much current the amp will draw from the battery and select a wire that is capable of carrying that much current without heating up. Offhand a #8 AWG would suffice for most single amp.

2. "Where does the Line cables go?" If you are referring to the Line INputs of your new amp, they maybe connected to the RCA OUTput (line level) of the old amp (it it's got one). Alternately, if the old amp has only INputs and your new amp has both INputs and OUTputs, remove the RCA connection to the old amp and plug them in to the new amp. Thereafter connect another pair of RCA male cables from the output of the new amp to the inputs of the old amp.
If neither of the new or the old amps has an OUTput RCA female, you may need to use a splitter of some sort. Below is an image of a two female RCA to a single RCA male.
b6f5283.jpg
You can hook it up in many ways. The simplest would be to remove your existing RCA connection to the old amp, plug in the double female/1male to the INput of your old amp. Connect the cable from the head unit to one of the female RCA. Connect another pair to the other female and the other end to the input of the new amp.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
