Sub system won't play can't find in settings amo hooked up to subs yet still nothin help plz


Is the amp switching on? There are two 12v wires that have to be connected. One from a direct constant 12v supply source, and the other one from the ignition switch 12v source.Find a single 12v. supply which you can take from the lighter connection and then trace a 12v wire that runs from your ignition switch. This is mentioned in the amp manual.Double check. If the amp is coming on but no sound, then your wire connections from the amp are not correct.Or you have also connected the speaker wires incorrectly.Remmember not to connect the earth of the speaker wires to the direct earth(body of the car) but to the earth wires that are shown in the manual as this could blow the amp power IC. The earth wires of the speakers are marked -- and + respectfully and are also colour coded.You should have a RCA female plug connector from your amp to the subs. Check everything double and if still no luck their is a possibility that you could have blown an IC in the amp from wrongly connected wires. Hope this is not the case.

I have a keenwood indash dvd player i want to hook my amp to it but it dont have rca jacks so how do i do it


If your indash radio does not have RCA outputs, you can do two things. You can purchase a line level converter and hook it to one of the rear speakers. This will allow you to tap into the speaker wire, then convert the signal to RCA. Then you plug your RCA cables in there. The other (my recommendation) is to purchase an "add an amp" wiring harness. This harness will install between your radio and vehicle harnesses. It will have RCA output and remote wire. Then you run those back to your amp and there you go. You can find these at the scosche or PAC websites. You can also try www.crutchfield.com

How do I hook up my subwoofer and amp to OnStar


i assume you want the sub and amp for listening to music and not the onstar itself, just the vehicle has onstar? if thats the case the easiest way would be to hook a line level converter into the rear speaker wires (both right and left) this gives you a RCA jack output to connest your rca cables to to send signal back to the amp. run power to the amp as described in the wiring kit directions and hook everything up as the amp requires. the rca cables would go to the "in" on the amp and you can adjust the line level converter for output voltage ( increasing the level increases the volume before the amp, so be easy on the adjustments or you could blow your speakers.)

Hi i have just bought a alpine dvd headunit the 105r and it only has 1 phono sub output and not the left and right phono output how do i connect my amp to this


it has 3 pairs of rca outputs, one pair for the front, one for the rear, and another for the subwoofer. the other sub preamp output is not needed to run to your amplifier.

For better sound quality, buy an RCA Y splitter cable (single male connection to double female connections), and run your regular pair of rca cables to the amp.

Single sub preout but two needed


Buy a set of special rca connectors.... 1 "female to 2 male". Buy two...hook up your rcas coming from the radio to the female sides...POOF!!!! Your line levels (rca), 2 channels become 4. Bestbuy or walmart sell them....Even some auto parts stores.

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 do I hook up amplifier?


Well make sure you have enough power wire, remote wire, RCA's make sure they are long enough as well. Now depending on wattage the amp can kick out determins on the power wire size. Run a wire bout a foot from the battery + terminal and add a in-line fuse (once again depends on the power of the amp) now run the rest of the power wire to the back. (along with the remote wire and RCA's) Now hook up your RCA's on the sub output, (If no sub output hook up to the rear) this will connect to your amp RCA's input. Now for the remote wire, wire it up to the BLUE remote wire or power intena, this will go to your remote terminal on the amp. from thier all thats left is your speaker... Hope this was helpful
