I had this set up in my old car but I got rid of it and took everything out. It's been around a year or two since I installed it so i'm a little rusty so please bear with me. I laid all the wiring this morning and I just want to clear some things up before I start connecting things and putting it into motion.
My head unit is a Pioneer DEH-P5200HD. So I have a Aura Force 250-A 2 channel old school amp. I was told the amp is under rated at 2x75 rms and its very heavy and well built. I'm running a front stage set up with 6.5 Digital Design Coaxials. This is being put in a 1998 Toyota Camry.
The few questions I have are:
I ran the RCA cables on one side of my middle console and the Amp Power cable on the opposite side of the console. Is this okay? I want them separated because of interference right? However the speakers wires and the ignition or start wire is ran with the Amp Power cable. Is this okay?
Also, what wire goes where? Power Cable, Ignition/Start Wire, Speaker Wires, Ground cable.
If i remember right i need the ground cable screwed into a metal part of the chassis?
Is it the positive or negative terminal of the battery I connect the Amp Power cable to"?
My last concern is i'm not exactly sure what to set the amp knobs and setting to. And if I should use any of the Head Units equalizer, bass boosts, etc settings.
Like I said i'm rusty on car audio and I hope you guys can understand. I thank all and any help in advance!
