    Icon31 How do I wire this?

    I have two 12inch Audiobahn Flame Q Pro pressure subs, hooked up to a Audiobahn 2300HCT Amp. Up front I have a Rockford Fosgate Fanatic Q component system and a pair of Pioneer Rev 6'9s in the back. My Rockfords and my pioneers are hooked up to a 1300 watt Rockford Fosgate Power amp. My cd player is a Pioneer DEH-7500. I also have 4 capacitors. I have 2 2farad caps going to my Audiobahn amp, and 2 1farad caps going to my Rockford Fosgate amp. All of this stuff is hooked up to my factory battery right now. I only have a 75 amp alternator. I had to by a master disconnect switch to shut my stereo off when I get out of the car. I just ordered a Yellow Top Optima battery. I need to know how I can re-wire my stereo. Do I need fuse for each Capacitor? My capacitors right now are wired together. I have a distribution block that is 4 gauge in and 4 8 guage out. I have one power wire going into each 2 caps. My caps are sharing power wires. My amps only have one power input. Are my amps using both caps with them wired like that? I dont understand where I am supposed to put fuses! Sorry this is soo long Its hard for me to explain stuff! Please write me back ASAP. Thanks!

    The disconnect switch shuts off all of the caps and amps.

    The headunit should do that. It's called the "remote wire". It turns your amps on and off. Also, 4 capacitors?? That is gonna kill your electrical system even more than just the amps. Get rid of the capacitors, and take the money from the sale of those and buy a high output alternator. Will help much more than capacitors will and will help clean up the wiring.

    All depends on what kind of car you have and how much current you need. Check out www.MrAlternator.com, www.highoutputalternators.com, and www.4alterstart.com.

    There should be a blue wire(usually with a white line on it) on the back of your headunit. That is the remote wire. You connect that wire to your amps and it'll turn the amps on and off with the headunit.
