Use the black wire in the wiring harness, and connect it to the black wire in the car's harness. This grounds the receiver. If you have a chassis ground (a braided cable) for the receiver, ground it to any metal screw in a metal frame piece under the dash.

I am installing the CD Reciever in a Vintage Airstream Travel Trailer. The power wire, ground wire and speaker wires, should be no problem. (Neg ground) do I need the Mute, Illumination and remote? I...


1)The mute cable is to mute your CD Receiver when you get a call on your mobile phone. You will have to buy a car mobile dock for your phone and it will have a mute wire on it, which you will have to connect to your CD Receivers mute wire.
2) The illumination wire is to be connected to the headlight switch of your car. In some CD Receivers it will turn on the display at night along with the headlight. On some models it dims the back light at night along with headlight so that the bright light which is needed during the day does not distract your driving at night.
3) Remote wire is for triggering another device along with the CD Receiver,like an additional power amplifier or a Sub woofer etc.

I have a Phoenix Gold Octane Amp and 10d subwoofers. My friend took it out last week, and I want to put it back it, but I can't figure out where the power and ground wires go and where the speaker wire...


Ok, when you look at the amp, the power + and ground - will be on one side of the amp with another smaller opening in between them. That opening is for your remote wire from your radio. Without that, your amp will not receive the input voltage to signal it to turn on. The speakers will go into the remaining open holes. Your RCA wires will be on the opposite end of the amp.

Difficulty wiring into GM harness


well if your trying to actively wire it up with the car battery still connected that is why you are blowing fuses. just a heads up too if you have a live connection while hooking up the cd player you could short out other electrical devices and you could be in alot more trouble thatn just blowing fuses. the black wire is what is blowing fuses its because you have it hooked up wrong to a wire that is sending voltage not recieving voltage. ground the black wire to the actual chassis instead of hooking it to the ground wire from the harness or whatever color its grounded to which shouldnt be anything but black if you have the black wire hooked up to ANYTHING that isnt black that is why you are popping fuses. so hook up the red yellow and make your own ground you shouldnt have any problems after that.

Where does th JVC KS-SRA 100 power cord wire into. It says 14V DC outlet. is this the fuse box or a wire on the JVC receiver. I can get satelite reception but sound


Hi,
Power cord that goes to fuse box to provide power to unit. Yellow to 14V DC and black to Ground / car body.
J-Bus connector goes to receiver to amplify sound that goes to speakers.

How do i make my two l5 10 subs sounds with clear


Try these:
Make sure the gain isn't set too high. That's a very common cause of distortion. You'll never want it set above 3/4 of the way to high. It will be a small dial on your amp marked "gain".

See if your receiver has a built in crossover on the channel your amp is hooked up to and set it so the cut off is at 400hz if possible. Meaning that the receiver will only send frequencies of 450hz or lower to your amp

Look on the amp for a built in crossover to the channel your amp is hooked to and set it to 450hz.

Make sure the cable that connects your amp to your stereo isn't running near any power cables of any kind because electricity running through a power cable can be picked up and then the sound it makes will be amplified, sent to your subs and cause distortion.

Make sure your amplifier isn't grounded to
your battery as this can cause what's called ground loop noise...also distortion.

Ground your amp as far away from the amp itself and your subs as the manufacturer safely recommends.

If none of those help then i'll try again :)
