I just purchased a lightening audio subwoofer system so i can put it in my room. I thought i knew how to install it but it came with a 1 page instruction manual with little detail. I have a car battery in my room and everything needed but i dont know how to install it and get it running properly, my main concern is the battery. How do i connect the battery correctly to the amplifer. If someone can plz help me i would surelly apriciate it..
easiest way to use car audio stuff in the house is to use a computer power supply. cut the yellow and black wires, yellow is power black is ground. use one of the yellow wires as the remote wire then hook up the wires to appropriate terminals. remember to also leave one ground wire to hook up to the ATX motherboard connecter. this so you can activate the power supply as if you were pressing the on button for your computer. hook the ground wire to pin with the green cable or just cut it off and connect the two wires. plug in the power supply and there you have it, a 12 volt power supply that does not need filter and such. wattage will of course dictate what computer PWS you will use, most can be bought under $50 and give decent wattage.
hey ya im sory i didnt write back but i forgot the site name lol, well thnx for the help but its not helping this is to hard for me i dont gota clue wut 2 do, i dont care about the charger and stuff i just wana kno how to hook it up atleast so can sum1 plz tell me that simple thing? theres 3 wires i dont kno wut 2 do with, thats all,,, GRND POWER REM +12V <--where do i hook these wires too 2 get get power to the stupid amp and subs!! i had this for 2 weeks and dont gota clue wut 2 do, i just hooked up the subs directly to the radio and have it running at very little watts, its pumping good enuf bass to make my phone fall off of my radio and make my cd's skip while playing good bass songs lol : ) so plzz help me
YES!!! i read urs like 5 times but dont understand it, i read the whole da$% list of 100's of forums but I DONT GET IT! i never worked with subs, amps, or anything electrical even! just think of me as a mom asking u this k?
well first you are gonna need a computer power supply which can be bought in most computer supply stores or online at places like newegg.com. you can connect the red battery terminal to both the power and the rem connectors. then the black terminal to the ground connector. this will probably last about five minutes so i dont see the point in this. go out and buy a cheap computer power supply then come back.
ok you need to connect the one and only green wire on the big connector to any yellow wire. that will send a signal to the power supply to turn on. if you have one with a on/off switch that you can use that to turn your amp on and off. if not just plug and unplug the power supply. you CAN connect one black wire to the ground position and one yellow wire to the power position but the amount of current you may be drawing may cause a fire so use as many of each color as you can to get maximum equivalent gauge. then youi take any yellow wire and connect it to the position that says REM. that will send a signal to the amp to turn on.
ight but can u send me a link and show me like wut exactly to buy, im on a budget so i only wana spend about 50 at the most... my amp is 400 watts and i got 2 500 watt speakers. Just show me a picture of the wires, thanx alot i hope this works kus i cant get this to work
ight im gona buy that one today, but u c how there is alot of yellow wires and stuff, dus that mean i can connect more than one or wus shuld i do to hook it up for best results,,, and most important, do i need a computer? kus i dont have one...
you dont need a computer for this. it works i do it with my spare amp. there is a way to make a special switch but if you just plug and unplug it i dont think its all that bad especially if the power supply has its own power switch.
i cut them all. they are only like 22 gauge so running the amps with only one of each will be dangerous. leave one yellow and one black and take the rest and twist the stripped ends together. connect that to the terminals on the amp. the extra yellow goes to the remote 12V terminal and the extra black goes to the green wire on the big connector. remember to be careful when doing this. if you arent sure of yourself wear some rubber gloves so you dont electrocute yourself. if you still arent sure after you get the power supply, takes some pictures of your stuff and i will try and clarify with your stuff.
