im trying to hook up a car amp into my house hooked up to two 12" subs and a pair of 225w 6x9" speakers.
my amp is a sony xplod 500w, and im using a 25amp inverter i bought from radio shack.
i can't get the amp to power on or at least get the LED on.

i realize it's a 155w underpowered (25*13.8 = 345w). but, i thought it would still be able to power on and operate, at least get the back LED to light up.

here's some photos:

Is there something I'm missing??

good thing u posted some pics cause i see your problem very easily !

REM (remote) wire is NOT connected ! - when using a car deck u attack it to the rem wire (usually blue) u can also connect it to your positive terminal on your adapter . Without rem wire being connected - your amp will NEVER turn on .

is that a discman u are using btw ?......
