    Need help installing an amp!

    I'm pretty much a total noob with car audio.. so far I've managed to get new components in my doors, but I'm pretty sure I'm biting off more than I can chew with installing an amp.
    I'm in mid-westchester, anyone nearby that can lend a hand? I can give a little incentive too (cash, 6-packs of beer, etc )
    My car's a '12 Mustang btw, for anyone familiar with the wiring

    What kind of amp is it and what is it running? How much power RMS per channel? Where do you want to put it? YouTube is a great resource here, too.

    Re: Need help installing an amp!

    It's a PPI P900.4, 145W per channel @ 4 ohms (4-channel amp) powering a set of PPI 356cs up front (planning to bridge the last 2 for a sub later). I don't have a preference where to put it, was originally thinking to put it under the passenger seat. Plus the amp kit I have only has 10' of wire, so I doubt it would reach the trunk.
    I did a good amount of research with Google/YouTube but I can't find a super in-depth guide that goes into detail about where/how to tap into the speakers for my LOC, how to hook everything up behind the dash, and how to mount it under the passenger seat.

    Ew, LOC... if you're installing a system like this, why not throw a new deck in, too? RCAs are much higher quality sound and your head unit will also make the whole system sound better than the stock head unit. Mounting isn't hard, just use screws and attach it wherever the amp fits and has a little bit of airflow, AKA don't cut out a chunk of the foam in the chair for it to mold into.
    If you're keeping the stock head unit there's only 1 wire you have to attach to, which is the remote wire that tells the amp to turn on. This can be a different color on your vehicle depending, but if you put in a new HU it would be labeled somewhere.
