Re: Amp installation help
Get an 8 gauge wiring kit from knukonceptz. Obviously you can get other brands or find wire locally. This is just an example of good quality wire at a reasonable price. Being in CA, local may be a cheaper option. The B+ and Ground are technically part of the input, even though they may be on the opposite side of the amp. 8 gauge power wire to the the B+ from the battery with the appropriate fuse inline(the kit will supply this). A short ground from the amp to chassis(make sure the area you choose is sanded down to shiny metal and make sure it's VERY secure. 95% of more of amp issues occur from a bad/loose ground). Make sure you connect the ground last.
The remote wire will be connected, in this case since you're using a stock HU, to the fuse box. Pick up an add-a-fuse to connect the remote wire to some circuit in your car that only turns on when the car is on, likewise is off when the car is off. This simply tells your amp to turn on and off. These can be found for cheap at any auto parts store. Pick up a line output converter. I've used this one many times with no issues. This will connect to the rear speaker wires and will give you the outputs you need to connect the RCAs. This can be done in the trunk, at the rear speaker, or behind the the HU. I recommend put it behind the HU, so that the RCAs will already be there whenever you get a new HU. Plug RCAs in, then run new speaker wire from the outputs on the amp to your speakers.
Then read up on how to properly set the settings on your amplifier or you could fry it or the speakers in minutes.
