I pulled out a barely used Alphasonik GP-2035 amp that I had in a box and I want to hook it up to a sub. But I don't have the wiring diagram and their website is no help. Is it right(+) and Left(-) for mono? Please help!

I think any chassis ground will do, most times the seats are bolted thru the chassis, it might be easiest to just take up a seat bolt, and then attach your ground, and then bolt the seat back down.

No, go buy an inline fuse, that way if something electrical happens you will not fry your amp (hopefully). They are cheap.

No, that is why you have to hook the remote wire (Blue) up on the amp. Run the remote wire on the amp up to the radio and hook it up to the remote wire on the radio. When hooked up this way, your amplifier only runs when the radio is on, not all the time.

I have a Sony HU w/ 2 pre-outs. I have an infinity basslink powered sub(200w), a xplod 4ch 600w for the interiors. I have 4 ga powering the basslink already, I want to add the amp. This is my plan was to go 4ga to 1F cap, to dist. Block with 2 8ga out to basslink and xplod. I need to know the best way to connect the rcas. The basslink nor the xplod have preouts. I could use a X-over? how would I power it? Help Please

ok here is how i did it one time. I cut the remote wire and spliced it I put the spliced end in one amp and the other in the other amp. all i had was one pre out on my HU. so i bought rca splitters i put the + in each + on both amps and the - on each - on both amps. i bought a power wire splitter and ran them to each of the amp. and for ground i i just used seat bolts to the chasis.

So you split the remote wire, that sounds good. but now I want to know about the rcas. I didn't want to split them with just regular splitters. I read that i should use an electric crossover.

Richard, first off I would use an inexpensive crossover installed before the basslink and the amplifier. Make sure you get a two way. Next run the biggest power cable you have from the front of the car to your amplifiers. Next install a distribution block on it to split to two power wires, run to each amp, and the x-over. Ground each amp, and x-over. Split off of the remote wire to both amps and X-over. Attach RCA's into x-over. Run RCA's from rear output/lowpass to basslink. Run RCA's from front output/highpass to the amp. Now your ready to set the gains for your car.

Oh yeah, about the cap. Install it inline between the distribution block and your basslink (power), I don't think your other amp will need one as it is running highs.
