car audio amplifier basic install guide

The longer you spend on car audio, the more likely you are to install components yourself.
In this basic guide I will tell you some of the tools and components you need to install your car\'s audio amplifier.
Mounting an amplifier can be a bit tricky.
They need to remove the internal panels, as well as wires from the front of the car to the rear or anywhere where the car\'s audio amplifier is installed.
After purchasing the car audio amplifier, you need to purchase the amplifier wiring kit.
These kits usually include: * power cord (big red wire)
* Set of embedded fuse holder * RCA * long thin wire (
Mostly Blue)
Called Remote Control * Some speaker wires and various wire connectors and wire loomThese kits also have various sizes or meters, the most common of which are 8 meters and 4 instrument kits.
The smaller the number means the larger the wire.
4 instrument kits will be enough to handle about 600-
1200 W amplifier.
Once you have the car audio amplifier and amplifier wiring kit, it\'s time to take a look under the hood and find your battery.
Once you have found the battery, it is best to unwrap the battery during the installation so that you do not miss anything at work.
Look at the firewall area on one side of the battery and check if there are any types of holes that will lead to the inside of the vehicle, where you can go through the power cord.
If you can\'t find an accessible hole, you may have to drill one yourself.
If you have to drill one yourself, it\'s better to make a small hole in the first place so you don\'t damage any wires in the area.
Gradually make the hole larger with some kind of step bit.
Once the hole is made, use a rubber cable ring to make sure the hole is sealed and the metal edge does not cut off your power cord.
Now that the power cord has been wired through the firewall, it\'s time to start removing the internal panel to install the wires throughout the vehicle.
In the process, you will run 3 wires to the position of the car amplifier.
In general, the amplifier will be in the trunk/hatch area.
The first wire will be the red line (
This is the power cord you run out of the vehicle battery).
Next is a set of RCA, and finally a thin blue wire that we call the remote control.
In some kits, remote wires can be built into RCA.
RCA sends the sound or signal to the amplifier and then zooms in through the speaker.
One rule I normally use when running a wire is to separate the power supply and RCA by running the cord down from one side and RCA down from the other.
If it is not done correctly, you may generate some engine noise from the speakers.
RCA will be plugged into the output on the back of the radio, and some CD players will have a set of RCA jacks that will give you more control over sound quality.
Next is the remote wire (
Usually a thin blue line)
When the radio is powered on, this is the wire that sends the signal to the power supply.
This wire hook is on the remote wire on the back of the CD player.
At this stage of the process, don\'t worry about the wires being too long, they are easily trimmed once you find that you want the amp to sit down.
Once you have the wire, you can set up your box and AMP, and if it will eventually be permanently installed, give yourself a reference on how many wires need to be trimmed.
You will also be able to determine at this time where your position will go;
In general, somewhere in the 1 feet m range of the amplifier, body grounding is enough.
Once you have found the right place, clear any paint area with a little sandpaper so you can make a strong connection with the body.
Now you can connect all the wires to the amp and sub and hide any excess wires to make your installation look more professional.
The final stage is to connect the power cord to the battery and install an online fuse protector.
Everything is done, turn on your system, and make all adjustments to the volume you think is appropriate for the type of sound quality you want.
