You can tap the amplifier's remote wire into the accessory power lead at the back of the head unit. On most head units this is a red wire. Doing this will make your amplifier turn on and off with the key switch, rather than the deck power.

Is the Phono output on the RX4109 considered a preamp output in to a Power Amp?

The phono connection is an INPUT and it is a low impedance circuit. It is easily overdriven because the signal that goes into it is very small. You plug a record player into it. Any pre-amp connections on an audio device are in place after equalizer controls. There are no pre-amp connections on the Sherwood.

What is rmt on the amp

On most amps, rmt (remote) is a wire that connects to your stereo remote wire to the remote port on the amp. The remote wire turns your amp on when turning ignition on and turns amp off when turning ignition off. This wire needs to be connected as without it, you will drain your battery.

Amplifier has a phone jack for remote. Stereo has a blue wire for remote. Do these two need to connect to each other, or can I just run a phone cable from the amp to a remote switch mounted up front. ...

No. That port is for your gain(volume) control switch for the amp(it should have been included with the amp). Connect the stereo's blue remote wire to the amp's remote input that's next to the batt. input and ground input. Here's a link that showed me the pics plus a pic of the switch with the phone jack cable. Copy and paste. Good luck. http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_2553_Volfenhag-ZX-8300.html

How to install kicker amp to a 1995 f-150 new

nice radio bud. also want to say that the kicker amp will take the input from the stereos rca subwoffer out port on the back of the stereo, i have read about your radio before answering your questions to ensure acuracy.

Taken Directly from your manual


Press and hold the SEL button until LCD display “DSP OFF”. Press SEL button again and LCD display “WOOFER OFF’. Rotate volume to activate the subwoofer control function, then leave the unit idle for your desired setting to take effect. Make sure the unit is connected to an external amplifier.

RCA Line Out

The RCA Output Jack is on the back of the
unit on the right side. (See figure 1) This
output is for connecting an amplifier, equal-
izer, or other audio component that requires
a pre-amp out connection. (Red = Right,
White = Left) Follow the manufacturers in-
structions for the audio component that you
are connecting

The Subwoofer Output Jack is on the back
of the unit on the right side.

on page 8 of 22 on this ebook illustarted the proper wireing configurations for an aopmilifier. note: the remote wire must be conencted to the radio to the amp remote to allow radio to trun amp off and on good luck.

The amp stays on with lights and fan running after car is off?

You must remove the 12v power source from the remote turn-on terminal of the amp to make it switch off. This is generally done by connecting the remote turn-on terminal to the head unit's power antenna or system control terminal. When the head unit is switched off, the amp will go off.

Amp stereo hook ups

You need to run RCA cables from the RCA output jacks on the back of the Sony to the input RCA jacks of the Jensen amp. Then you need to run a wire that connects to the blue wire of the wiring harness on the sony to the "remote" or "turn on" terminal of the jensen. That is the wire that turns the amp on when the radio is turned on. It should be on the power wire terminal of the jensen along with the +B (positive) and the GND (ground) terminals. Those are the only ones that go from the Sony to the Jensen. You also need to have the speakers connected to the speaker jacks of the amplifier, and the power wires connected to the power terminal of the amp. The positive power wire needs to go to the positive battery terminal and the ground should be connected to the chassis of the car close to the amplifier. make sure the ground is connected to a clean bare metal part to make sure it is good.

Thats all, but you also need the proper guage wire and make sure no bare wire is exposed to any metal areas or the chassis of the car. You can get all of those things at anyplace that installs car audio. They can tell you the proper guage wire and they have the RCA cables to.

If you are not experienced at this type of installation you really would be better off lettng a professioanl do it for you. It is easy to wire something wrong and damage the amp and/or the receiver.

The wires also need to be run in a place that they will not be damaged and are out of the way.

Ihope this helps you, and please be careful. Help is here if you need it.

Blown amp

hi, try connecting the power b+ and gnd and remote turn on cables only (dont connect rca input or any spks), if amp doesnt turn on you will have to take in for repair. no need to buy new amp, coz problem could be a burnt pcb track or even a faulty remote or FET circuit.if amp turns on then connect other cables slowly and monitor the power lite as you do connections. you may have a faulty spk load that will cause amp to stay off or in protection mode. cheers
