    ever heard of this?

    for the jensen 600 6 channel amp to turn on i have to have some strands of the power wire in the remote wire terminal for it to turn on and function. Is this normal?

    That will cause your amp to be on all the time...

    Dont do that, install your remote wire to a 12v source that remains constant while the ignition is turned (ignition fuse, REM on HU, ignition wire)...

    well if you do it that way, your amp will always be on and you will run down your battery until its dead. hook it up to the headunit so that it only turns on your cd player is on

    Check to see if your HU has a setting were you can switch it on. I think my HU does but I cant remeber for sure. Dont have any amps hooked up right now to worry about.

    Test the wire from your HU with a DMM. Make sure it is seeing a 12v signal when on.

    Just for future reference...easy way to trouble shoot this is to grab a DMM and make sure the REM wire is sending 12V to the amplifier.

    Re: ever heard of this?

    whats a price for a cheap one of those? about? for future refrence. I sent my directed in with 15 dollars for shipping because it is under warranty to dei. Should i let them bench test it and what not to make sure there is nothing wrong? or should i just tell them to send it back? im curious about this. IM paying for my stupid mistake.
