How to wire a stereo system

I have a alpine cda7863 cd deck in a ford f250 exrended cab truck. I would like to install a Alpine mrv1505 amp to a Alpine 12x sub and A Alpine mrp f305 amp to a set of pioneer 4ways in front doors and a pair of alpine s 6x9 in rear doors( 2way). I also have a rockfordfosgate 1 farad punch capacitor. I have 2 seperate amp insallation kits (one is 2ga, the other is 4ga.) I have built a box out of 3/4 pdx (2.2 cuft) I sealed it with liqued nail and screwed together with sheetrock screws. Do I need to port? Should I bridge the alpine 1505 amp to run the sub? How to wire? Help!!!! This is the first time I have ever wired a system. Concerned GARY

Connect the 2 gage to the battery thru at least s 50 amp fuse, then connect the capacitor in line before the amps. Then run the 2 gage to a connector/splitter block and run 4 gage leads to each amp. You also will need at least 4 gage ground leads from each amp to a body grounded bolt or screw. You need to run a quality set of speaker leads from the head unit to the amps. The speakers will need separate leads from the amp to each speaker.You will need to try some different combinations to get the sound and bass you want. You want to be able to fade from front to rear and control everything thru the head unit.
Use a hole saw to cut a 2 to 3 inch diameter hole in the side of the speaker box for a port to get a better punch from the sub.
Hope this helps some....

Did you change out the factory deck? If not, wire the tweets to the existing wiring. If you already have tweets they have been crossedover already. However, if you replaced the deck, you may need to run new wire to the doors and use the crossover that came with your component set. Hope this helps

Hi, I recently purchased a new Stereo deck and I like to remove the old Alpine CDE-7827 deck. My car is a 1995 Ford Thunderbird.


The original wires in the 95' thunderbirds are a pain, trying to figure out how to take out factory stereo and replace with aftermarket Sony cd player, have no clue because the wires don't match up, some do and they will load and unload discs but won't power up any suggestions...?!?

What you have been told is correct, these proprietary systems are great for the manufacturer, but when they start to have issues (and they will) they leave you 2 options: pay through the nose to stay original or replace the amps with new ones....the upside of this is aftermarket amps are soooo mugh better than stock that it is lauhgable.

No sound from front speakers during CD operation.


I think you are using an external amplifier,if this is the case,you may be using the wrong remote wire for the amp.
Alpine use two blue wires,BLUE (only) this wire is for the pwr antenna and every time you insert a cd, this pwr line cut out.
BLUE/WHITE STRIPE this is the remote wire that you need to connect the remote of the amplifier.

thanks for rating

Instaling alpine car/cd stereo cda 9807


Its probably your wiring harness that came with the stereo. Which can cause many more problems. alpine changed their wiring harness around that time. But they used the same plug, just wired different. So now there are crossed wires, but the plug fits, causing the amp chip to fry. maybe even further than the amp chip. an amp chip replacement runs about 80$ at a repair shop. if its just that.

No audio from cd player


What kind of car did you install this in? Did it have a factory radio in it? If I had to take a guess I would think that there is a factory amp that you may have hooked the blue wire from the alpine deck to. If this is the case when you switch to CD the alpine deck turns off the power to the power antenna lead(blue wire) and thus your factory amp. If this is the case hook the factory amp turn on to the blue and white wire and you should be good to go. The same goes if your have an aftermarket amp driving your speakers.

How to install an alpine cda 9851


you go to a stereo shop..(walmart autozone etc should also do) buy a mounting kit and a wire harness adapter. The wire colors on the adapter match the wire colors of most aftermarket decks. MAtch the wire colors and connect...make sure to tape wires well as if they touch you rick damage to your deck.. install the mount kit plug in your cd player and slide it in and you are good to go..
