Ive just installed the following to improve the dreadful basic sound:
1, vibe 4" components in front doors with tweeters
2, 8" earthquake subs under front seats
3, blaupunkt tha555 amp in the boot with the 5 meter harness
1, the harness has + and - connections but I could only find the constant 12v live at the back of the stereo. The wire which said 'ignition 12v' (only come live when ignition is one) doesn't seem to do anything?!
2, where do I get a remote wire from?!
I assumed I could use the head units power to power the amp. I connected the 12v constant live and earth to the pnp harnes and plugged in black and yellow plug into power socket on amp. This does power the amp but doesn't turn it off when I turn the car off!
After reading online it seems I should power the amp with new heavier gauge (8 gauge) power cable direct from battery and a new earth but where do I get the remote wire to turn the amp on and off?
I'm pulling my hair out here, please help??
Thanks in advance!
