this might be a stupid question but here it goes, can ground and power wire be used for the opposite purpose, like say using power wire as ur ground, i dont mean not having a ground wire, jsut using the power wire to do the same thing the ground would, and vice versa, like using the ground wire to power ur amp from ur distrubution block. sorry if this is a stupid question jsut seen a install once using what looked like it said power wire as there ground so jsut been curious, thanx in advance
so run red wire from your battery, then black wires from your distro block to your amps? yes this is fine. Only thing is put a piece of tape on the black power wire so you dont get them mixed up when you go to hook up the black power and the black ground cause that would be very bad!
thanx alot james, i got one quick question i was lookin at this h/u http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?sku_id=0665000FS10059188&catid=1 0174&atab=3&logon=&langid=EN it has 3 pre outs like i want, 5 volts(which higher is better right) but there is not sub control is this a bad thing, could u recommend something comparable to the h/u i had in my car, i now have a truck and im selling everything in my car with it, i had a blaupunkt austin cd41 and really liked it...or jsut tell me if the h/u i was lookin @ was any good,,,thanx alot james
sorry yes 5 volts is a good output voltage, and if you wanted a sub level that bad you could add a EQ for sub level control. If you use ebay look into a alpine 9813 or 9815 they are great great decks, with built in x-overs, and sub level control, time correction, sat ready,ect. I have the 9813 and love it. You can't go wrong with eclipse though.
thanx alot james im gunna definately try to get one of those decks...i originallu wanted alpine but the better ones were so expensive and those lower one all said 2v...but now that ive seen that one im gunna try to get one...
