    Brown wire taped to grey wire, ect....So you mean like scotch tape???
    mmmm, wires arn't suppose to tape together, but maybe i'm mistaken you????
    Like he said above:
    • Power wire from amp to fuse holder to battery
    • turn on lead from amp to reciever
    • ground wire from amp to bare metal on the car
    • RCA plugs from amp to reciever
    • speacker wire from amp to speacker
    I'm confused on your grey, and brown wire together, or maybe i mistunderstood you. I guess you should get new wires?????

    Re: need help hooking up amp

    the brown and gray are taped together at the bottom like you would put a posative and negative to gether so you know which ones hook with other wires i dont mean the ends of the are together. but im still confuse on which wires are which. whats the orange one for?
    end of wire ~===brown wire=====[tape]===amp
    end of wire ~===black wire=====[tape]===amp thats what i mean by taped together sorry for the misunderstanding. i hope that kinda helps thanks
