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

yes they are interchangeable they are red and black so people don't get mixed up. Just something to make it easy to seperate the two if need be.

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!

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.

I dont know why the new alpine's are 2 volt. I think they are 2 volt front and rear and 4 volt sub. Mine is 4 volt all around. http://cgi.ebay.com/Alpine-CDA-9813-CD-MP3-Player-Nice-No-Reserve_W0QQitemZ58596 12958QQcategoryZ39750QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
