Tap into the blue antenna lead on the harness if you have an aftermarket head unit. If not, you can run from the switched ignition power wire on the factory head unit. If you pull the head unit out, it may have a diagram on it telling you which wire does what. There are two power wires - one is constant power to maintain radio presets, clock, etc, and the other one is triggered when you turn the key - that's the one you'd want. If you use constant power, your amp would never shut off, even when the key was out of the ignition. If none of that is feasible, run the wire from the battery to your remote turn-on connection on the amp, but put a switch on it up near the driver's seat, so you can turn the amp on manually.

Amplifier is not turning on due to no signal from the remote wire. I dont know if I have the correct wire connected together to my remote wire that came in my wiring kit. What Color is the remote wire...


If the unit is aftermarket and it has a harness, the wire will be blue. If not, visit installr.com and find ur Car model and the wiring harness codes will show which wire is the ignition remote wire on. That is the wire you need to hook up your amp to.

Is it safe 2 install these subs 2 a 2000 watt power acustic amp and if so how do I wire them for a 1 ohm stable load


It looks like you have the Power Acoustik OVN1-2000D Mono Block 2000 Watt amp.
Monoblocks all feed speakers normally and cannot be bridged. So hookup your speakers
as normally with + on the amp to + on the speaker and same with the -.
Now for the speakers. I dont know too many Kicker speakers that are 1 ohm but the
monoblock wont care. It will feed the 8,4,2 or 1 ohm speakers the same power. You just may
get less response from the higher ohm speakers-less Bump Bump. You could wire your speakers
in series to get a lower ohm load (2-4ohm speakers in series gives the amp a 2 ohm load) and get
better response. Here is a site that answers many electrical and speaker questions.
See # 57 on the right hand pane. Tells you exactly what will do best. Good luck.

I need to know how to wire this to my amp i have never wired a 3 way system and i need to know if i do any thing different


Typically on these units there is only one hookup for the amp or a left and right hookup. The crossovers are already inside the speaker box and will send the highs to the tweeters and the lows to the subs. Make sure that if you amp has an adjustable crossover that it is set to full so that all frequencies go to the speaker box.

I just needed some help with wiring my p8002 rockford amp to 2 fosgate 10 inch subs i just bought. there 4 ohms a piece and dual voice coil. i dont know much about car stereos but people keep telling me...


Well i tried looking up that amp, but Fosgate sight is down. So assuming that the best power out of your amp is 2ohms off the bridged hookup, and the subs are 4 ohms per coil, the best way is to only use one side of each speaker and hook it straight the the bridge. Only using one hook up wont hurt anything, its just for giving you wiring options. And when adding up ohms of speakers, it goes like this. If you had two 4 ohm subs, that'll give you a 2 ohm load. If you hooked up all your hookups, it would be like having four 4 ohm subs, and would give you a 1 ohm load.

I just bought a Kenwood KDC-X493 and installed it in my Alero. I hooked it up to an amp and a sub and it only works with the tuner and not and Ipod or an auxilary hookup or even a cd. what is wrong.


Hello jarhead455,

It sounds like the remote terminal on your sub amp is not properly connected. The KDC-X493 has a wire to turn on a remote amp (Blue/White) and a wire for a power antenna (Blue). If the blue wire is connected to the amp remote terminal, the amp will only turn on when the tuner source on the receiver is selected. If the correct wire is connected, the problem is most likely in the receiver.

If the receiver is at fault, not under warranty, and you still want to use it, you can connect any fused 12V+ to the amp remote terminal. A simple way is to jumper a short wire between the power and remote terminals. Wire the jumper through a SPST switch conveniently located so that you can turn it ON and OFF as desired.

Hope this helps.

Sub woofers and amp


first of all is the amp a four way amp? if so then you need to know what the watts of the subs are (you dont want to melt them) wire + and - of channels 1 and 2 to one sub and + and - of channel 3 and 4 to second sub, nice thick lead from battery positive (fused) to positive terminal on amp thick lead from a good earth point to negative terminal on amp run a set of rca leads down the opposte side to the positive wire to prevent interference, run thin wire from remote wire of radio to the remote terminal of amp, rca's are plugged in at stereo and at the am. may need a RCA splitter to be able to power all four channels

Good luck Davelee

My pioneer gm-h100 amp does not have a remote wire hook up on the amp


there should be a wire harness that clips into the side of the amp if you dont have the clip u can just use some end conecters and hook it up to the two pins that are on the side and hook that to the remote wire.

Installing amp


If I understand you right, your amplifier is never turing off

The remote wire from your head unit should be the wire that goes to the remote turn on of the amp.

If that wire is getting constant voltage to the amp you have a problem in the head unit.

This is something that will require your head unit to be checked by a technician.

Before you take it to a service center, make sure that this is your real problem.

I may be able to help you with that.

First , how do you know the remote wire is getting constant voltage to the amp, how did you check it?

Is the amp on all the time, even with the car turned off?

Does the amp turn off if you disconnect the remote wire from it?

Let me know if I can be of more help.
