You will need a line level adaptor to get an audio input for the amp.

A line level adaptor is a device that lets you tap off of your speaker outputs of the radio and it converts that signal into the proper level for an RCA input signal the amplifier uses.

If you are installing the amp in the trunk of the car you can just tap off the speaker outputs of the rear speakers mounted in the trunk. Keep the speaker outputs connected to the speakers, just run an extra set of wires from them to the line level adaptor. It will not take anything away from the speakers sound because it is not a power drain on them.

After that, you just connect the power wires for the amp as you would normally and you also need to run an extra wire from the radio power antenna wire to the remote turn on of the amp, or you can use a wire directly from the battery and connect it thru a switch you would need to connect somewhere around the dash, so you can turn the amp on and off when you need to. The power antenna wire from the radio is best, so you don't need to turn the amp on and off manually. It is easy to forget about turning it off sometimes and that would run doen your battery if the amp is left on over night even with no signal going thru it.

Then connect your speakers to the amp and thats it.

Then big issue is getting an audio signal to the amp and the turn on signal for the amp.

If you need more help let me know,

We have a Rockford fosgate p3002 model. The amp fuses keep blowing and the protect light is on.


It most likely has a blown channel. It is going into the protect mode. If you have a multimeter I can guide you thru the process of figuring out which channel is blown and how to repair it. It will require, as noted above, a multimeter as well as a soldering iron, solder, solder wick and then the purchase of the bad parts. If you do not have this equipment there is no way for you to fix this yourself. You can always take it to a service center for repair if you are not able to do it yourself.

I have fixed many Fosgate amplifiers and can assure you there is no easy fix for your amplifier. It will require the replacement of parts.

Let me know if you are willing to try it yourself and I will help you as much as possible.

My rockford fosgate amplifier P500 blows fuses when i turn it on


Check your amps ground and make sure it has a clean connection to the chasis. If there is paint or any kind of coating where you are trying to ground, use a steel brush to expose the bare metal. Also, make sure you are grounding the amp directly to the chasis and not to another grounded wire.

Hope that helps.

I have a 1999 Toyota Tacoma and the C.D. player worked fine until a couple months ago. All of a sudden, when I put in a C.D., it simply ejects. I tried a cleaner, I tried blowing it out. Any ideas?


If you haven't done so already, unplug the main power source from the back of the head unit. Wait a few seconds and plug it back in. If it is still ejecting cd's automatically. It will most likely need to be replaced.

How do i install a subwoofer and amplifier to an exhisting car audio system


Hi,

The basic would be to wire the sub amp to your batteries with the trigger/remote wire powered by your car stereo/head unit. When your head unit is turned on it will in turn power up the sub amp. Of course the sub woofer need to be wired to the amp. For the signal/audio wiring, normally, the head unit has a stereo RCA female connectors at the rear intended to be connected to external amps through a pair of shielded/audio cable terminated both ends with RCA males. Some units have a special RCA specifically for subs. Most eternal amps also uses RCA for their inputs.

If the existing car audio system has already an external amp and your plan is to add on to this, the audio/signal from the head unit could be split to provide both for the existing and the new sub amp.

If the existing car audio does not have an external amp and their are no RCA connectors at the rear of the head unit, it is still possible to connect an external/add on amp by using an adapter that connects to the speaker wires of the head unit and converting it out to line level (through RCAs) appropriate for the input of the amp.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. it would also be nice if you can post brand/model of your head unit and intended sub amp.

Good luck and kind regards.
