I hav an amp that i want to hook up to my rockford fosgate rfx-9200 deck but there is a problem with the connections... amp wires have connections for posotive and for negative. in the back of my rockford deck the only connections is
1.where the speaker/ground etc. wires plug in
2. a similar plug in
there is no spot to plug in a negative and posotive amp wire.
is there some kind of adapter i can buy for it?

Re: rockford fosgate rfx-9200
If you're talking about the amplifier's power terminals, the positive terminal is designed to be wired directly to the battery (be sure to fuse the amp power wire near the battery terminal). The negative terminal should be bolted to vehicle chassis metal for a ground connection.
The only amplifier connections that go to the back of the head unit are the remote turn-on wire and the RCA cables.

The best way to install a stereo deck is go get yourself a Scoshe wiring harness. This will allow you to wire the harness directly to the stereo, then plug directly in to the OEM wiring clip that is plugged into the factory stereo. It helps if and when you sell the truck and want to put the factory stereo back in. Plus you dont have to hack up wires. Hope it helps. You can get the wiring harness from any car stereo installation or customization shop.
I am going to try adding more wires to the harness... If you open the deck, and read the board near the harness, it has auxL, aux G, auxR. I am going to try it on mine, as i have a backup unit if it goes to shit. I'll probably post my results on the fosgate forums, where people know what they are doing...
Also, I have the rfx-8320, with my old 8220 faceplate which works perfect. they did not change much if at all from 82xx-83xx. It gives you more options for parts. ;)
