Check the fuse in the amp.
If the fuse is good, make sure your remote wire (blue) is connected to the remote wire from your deck.
Is your ground connected?

How can i hook up a car stereo in the garage without using a car battery, and get the same juice as far as wattage and power???


Wire a 12 volt AC adapter to it. Connect the power to the positive wire, & the ground to the negative wire. If it's a low power unit a 1 amp adapter will work. If it's a high powered unit you might need a 12 volt 5-10 amp adapter designed for monitors, TVs, monitors, & some laptops. Beware some laptop AC adapters can be 16-36 volts. Make sure you use a 12 volt one, & know which wire is positive, or you'll burn it out.

I just got a used karaoke laser disc player ...no manual.....can it be hooked straight to speakers or does it need to go through a receiver?


Hello, the karaoke laser disc player, does it comes along with a self ampilifer if it does, check for the serial ribbon cable that is used to interconnect the disc player to the self ampilifer and connect the speakers to the output port of the ampilifer and not directly to the laser disc player.
If it does not come with a self ampilifer, then you can connect the speakers direct to the laser disc player.
With the following above it will work effectively for you to enjoy the laser disc player...

I have a problem with the wireing on a 1971 nova,i have no juice to the fuse box,no lights,dash lights ect. and no juice to the ignition switch,it is all dead


more than likely the power wire coming from the starter is bad, they have inline fusable links built into the power wires coming from the starter, make sure these are all hooked up and the links are not burnt. A service manual/haynes, etc will give you schematics and link locations

Power amp wont power up


Check the fuses-should be a pair of 30 amps on the side. use a paper clip and jump power from the power+ to the remote+ and see if that lights it up-if it does than your remote lead isnt giving it juice-

I bought a 2400 watt punch 801s amp that has two power out and two ground outs i've hooked up only one power and one ground and the amp comes on but as soon as i touch the speacker wire to it it hits one...


Check the gauge on the wiring. For that size amp you would need to use 0 AWG wire for the power, the speaker wire is just signal wire so you want to use regular speaker wire. (I have 12 AWG setup for speaker wires) What the two power ports (Neg and Pos) do is increase the amount of flow. Two power wires to distribute the flow of the current so you don't burn up your wires if your pumping too much juice. I started off with this exact amp running a single 8 AWG and split it into two and it burned up and blew a fuse after a couple of huge bass hits. So proper setup would be....
BAT(+)---FUSE HOLDER(60AMP+)---DISTRIBUTION BOX(30AMP+)====AMP
GND(-)===AMP
-- would be 1 wire pref 0 AWG splitting into more 0-4 AWG
== would be the 2 wires (Yes two ground points in separate locations would be better)
Thus finalizing you have a proper setup.
Be careful you don't burn out your alternator, this bad boy can cause some serious problems with a lower amp alternator. Let me know how it works out.
