Low Voltage Post

Thank you for your time. So from reading that page you sent me, it seems to be a problem with my headunit, not the wires or amp. Correct me if i got the wrong thing from that page. If i install a new head unit would that work as well? also do you have a solution for the "low voltage" thing?lol thanks man for everythin so far

The head unit doesn't need to be replaced. It can be repaired if the shield is open.

If the amp still give an indication of low voltage and the voltage isn't too low, the amp probably has an internal fault.

I have a cheap VRCD400-SDU receiver I bought on ebay. Im trying to install it in an 87 samurai. I have no harness whatsoever. Not a factory one in the dash, nor the 16-pin receiver harness that attaches to...


You are correct that finding a universal harness is much like a unicorn hunt. I have been there before.

Your best bet is to bypass the harness, but use the same style female wire terminals that the wire harness holds together. I have included a link to www.mouser.com of the specific page of their catalog of these style connectors. You are looking at figure G.

http://www.mouser.com/catalog/catalogUSD/643/1514.pdf

What you will need to do, is use 18-20ga wire, solder the wire to these terminals & heat shrink them. You will then be able to individually connect each wire terminal & wire to each male pin on the headunit. It will be important to strain relief so they stay connected. Make sure you are not shorting any pins together, as this can cause damage.

In all honesty, i would look for a new headunit if this is a cheapo. The time & money spent for this solution can easily go awry when installed in a car. Installing the headunit back into the dash could knock them out, a bumpy road, etc.... Your headache may be much smaller with a different unit. But then again, like yourself, its what you do for fun.

Ok check the remote wire running from the headunit to the amp should be giving v12 feed whiles headunit is on.

Maystar MX2200 200 watt Mofset Amp. Single Sub Car wiring


The inline fuse goes on the power wire (as close to battery as possible), and is there for a sfety feature to keep from sending to much power to the amp. All it does, is simply blow if the power gets over the specified amperage. For your amp, I would use a 40-60 amp fuse.

The remote power line, is simply an 18 gauge wire, running from the headunit to the amp. All it does is tell the amp when to power up. Since the amp is straight to the battery, it is possible to be on at all times, so you run it to the amp so it knows when to be on. If your headunit doesnt have a remote turn on wire, then tou need to run it from the ingnition to the amp.

For a signal cable, I recommend getting an rca cable to run to the amp from the headunit. Make sure when you run it that you run it away from the power wire to prevent from having engine noise.

You also need a ground wire, wich should be to a stud on the frame of your car, as close to the amp as possible.

When hooking up your amp to the sub, you need to run the negative to the negative (black to black) and the positive to the positive (red to red).

Which wire is my amp power wire on a kenwood kdc-x617


hey mate,

You will need to run independent power and ground wires for the amp, then run your RCA leads from your headunit to your amp, the trigger wire to turn your amp on and off with the headunit is the pink and black wire in the kenwood wiring harness...

Hope this helps

Brad:)

Amp will not come on ,no light


Yes!!!!!!!!!! Your remote wire is what tells your amplifier to turn on and off it won't work without it. Assuming your stereo headunit is an after market unit it has the correct wire for this. what you have to do is pull out you headunit, and in the back of the headunit where all the wires plug into your unit there is blue wire with a white stripe. this is the remote turn on wire. connect a wire to that blue n white wire and run it back to your amp, insert it into to the spot marked remote. turn your head unit on and your amp will power up... if you have all the rca cables hooked up your amp should be ready to go.... btw good choice on the amp, kenwood is the way to go!

Protect led light


It appears that the amp is going into protect mode. To eliminate external causes, read through the following page. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I'm afraid you must go to the back of the headunit... your only other option would be to catch the wires in the door sill going towards the back, or catch them in the kick panels going towards the front doors. This will prove to be much much harder than just removing the headunit.
