im a huge sound guy and i miss having my sub in the car.. When i bought the car, i got the bose so i can get the better sound. Well the bose is ok, but the bass is just too blaaa and to me i think doesnt hit hard enough. So my question is, where did you guys run your amp wire from the battery into the car? could u tell me in a short detail of the location and after that location where inside the car the wire would be one through the grommet? a pic would be awesome too.. In my old 01 GP i had to drill a hole into the firewall and add a gromment. Im hoping i dont have to go through that again. thanks guys
people have pointed out what wire to splice that goes to the amp in the past. if youre just adding a sub/amp and not redoing the head unit and speakers it might be worth searching the forum to find that info. purple wire im thinking...
i think what he is saying is if you plan to keep your stock HU, then you will need to use one of the existing wiring to splice into for the amp to know when to power on and off.. Not the main amp power which is usually 8 gauge or less going directly to the battery.. On most aftermarket HU, the wire is usually called P-Control which runs back to an amp if you have one..
He's talking about the remote turn-on signal wire. Most aftermarket HU have a remote signaling wire that is usually Blue in color. It supplies a low current, 12vDC signal to any descreate device in the signal chain to turn it on. I.E. You amps, crossovers, EQ's, lighting, DSP's, etc.
Most HU installed today have a turn-on/signaling wire from the factory HU. He's saying it's a purple wire.
Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
Despite the confusion, I'd go with a JL cleansweep if you don't want to drop the dime on an aftermarket HU. I love my JL CS and it provides great power and clearer sound that my friend's expensive avic unit. I think its a great value and makes wiring pretty easy.
