    Re: A Sub With No Sound

    hey idesignboxes do you actually want to help or be the forum ******* of the night?


    first off, timebomb, do you have the stock HU or a new one installed? I would assume you have a stock hu because you want to run it off your current setup. They make adapters for your stock hu but i'm not knowing in that area. one thing you want to look at is what is your wire setup right now?

    you should have:
    power wire from battery
    ground wire (grounded good on a frame bolt, i'm not so sure you want to ground that to the antenna)
    remote wire (this turns the amp on and off with the head unit)
    rca signal cables (this sends the music to your sub)

    Usually when people use the high level inputs that hints that they have a stock HU
