    Icon32 almost done, but what do i do with my preouts???

    ok, i've been doing this all day. i had a dude install my sub and sound advice install my hu last time. i got a new car recently and wanted to put it all back in. i put the hu in, worked fine. the only thing i might be off about on the hu was there was a blue wire with white stripes, i ran that to the blue speaker wire(?) which went to the amp. i hooked everything up to my amp, accept i wasn't sure about the preout wires. how to do hook those up to it? when i took them off i wrote a note on each preout wire, but i don't remember what it meant. and then in the back of my hu i've got three preouts, but i have no idea what to do with all that. there's two sets of wires, one of them says subout, one says front outs, and then there's two ports next to those, but i'm assuming those are my rear outs? i have no idea. if anyone could help it would be awesome. i've been working on this all day. i'm gonna be checking for responses frequently and if you wanna just IM me my name is Chumpppppp. thanks

    Are you asking what do you do with the preouts? If so....

    first, since your profile says you dont got speakers yet, im gonna assume that jbl amp is for the subwoofer. Using the subout on your headunit, you use audio signal connect cables to connect your headunit's preout (subout) to connect to the input on your amp.

    I have no idea what that blue wire that you mentioned is. If its only one cable, its probably the remote power on for the amp.

    You connect the Blue/white off of your head unit to the remote turn on wire for you amp. As far as your RCA's go, hook them up to the input side on the amp, and then hook them up to the sub out set on your deck.
