I would recommend using an 8 AWG minimum or preferably 4 AWG power and ground cable. Use as short a ground lead as possible and connect it directly to some chassis metal (avoid accidentally screwing into the gas tank if in trunk). Use a fuse holder with a 40 - 60 amp fuse under the hood within 18 inches of the battery. Your RCA cable coming from the back of the JVC radio should be run to your amp along with the remote turn on lead. This wire should connect to the JVC's amplifier turn on lead which should be a blue wire with a white stripe.

Problem w/ my xplod amp


To wire correctly, I have the same xplod amp in my car.

Phono leads connect to the output terminals on the back of your head unit, Then connect to the input terminals on your amp.

The remote wire connects to the amp remote wire behind your head unit (if don't have a wire labeled amp behind the head unit then it usually a blue and white wire).

The power lead from your battery connects to the 12v or PWR terminal on your amp.

Then the Ground wire connects to a rust, dust and paint free area on your car (bolted down), Try behind your rear seats and find a bolt already there. This wire then connects to the GRND terminal on your amp.

Hope this helps.

Connected a Dual XPA2100 300 watt amp to the battery and connected ground to chassis of vehicle. Vehicle is 2004 Saturn Ion with battery located in trunk area. Amp does not power on, all connections are...


The remote wire DOES need to be connected to the head unit. You can see if thats the problem simply by touching the remote wire to the power wire. The unit should come on. The head unit should either have a remote lead, or a power antenna lead, and thats what you need to turn the amp on and off. BE SURE your ground is solid, and its usually best to take that to the battery as well to prevent unwanted engine noise. Hope this helps!

Amp not staying on


Hello lyttle_matt1,

Connect a DC voltmeter between the "remote" (+) terminal and the "ground" (-) terminal on the amp. When you turn on your Pioneer, you should read 12-14V. If you get voltage for a second and then it goes away, either the incorrect wire from the head unit is connected, or the head unit remote turn-on is defective. If the voltage remains on the terminal and the amp immediately turns back off, it's possible that the remote turn-on is not supplying adequate current for the amp. To determine if that is the case, run a separate wire from a positive (+) accessory terminal (cigarette lighter or fuse box) to the amp remote terminal. If the amp then turns on and stays on, you'll need to wire a relay into the turn-on wire. The wiring for such a relay is shown here. Most any 12V SPST or SPDT relay from an auto parts store or Radio Shack will work OK.

Got the hot nd ground conted nd the aux cables from the raido conted nd the amp does not turn on


The amp needs a remote signal to turn on. This is provided by wire from the back of your head unit. Also look for a 'REM' or 'remote' connection on the amp (besides the 12v and ground connection).

Look at the wiring/setup diagram for your head unit to determine which wire/connection you should use for this.

If the head unit does not have a specific 'remote' wire, you can usually use the power antenna wire to provide a turn on signal to the amp instead.

Sony xplod amp xm-1652z high level input connection


First off, if you're using RCA preamp connections from the head unit to the amp, you don't need to put anything into the high level input connector. But if your head unit doesn't have RCA preamp outputs, then connect the front left to the white (+) and white/black stripped (-) wires and the front right to the grey (+) and grey/black stripped (-) wires. There is no need to connect the rear speaker outputs of the head unit to the high level input of the amp.

1. What type of head unit are you using
2. does the head unit have a Loud feature?
- Sometimes you have to press the loud button on certain head units to engage the amplifier.


Try disconnecting your remote wire from the amplifier, grabbing a piece of small 12 or 16 gauge wire and bridging the remote wire with the (+) on the amplifier. if your light does not turn green, then check your fuse and the ground for the amplifier itself and the subwoofers.

When you connect the remote wire to the (+) it should automatically turn the amplifier on even if the cd player isnt on. The reason I want you to try to connect the remote and power is because sometimes the remote wire for the cd player is bad. If it does end up being a bad remote wire from the head unit, then your best fix would be to connect the red wire (ignition 12v) on your head unit to an on/off switch to the remote on your amplifier. You can then turn your amplifier on and off by flipping the switch. If you go to autozone or advanced auto parts you can pick up a toggle switch for about $3.00.
