Installing a car amplifier is fairly simple. quit your whining and take it out of the box to find the instruction manual! here are a few steps.
*remove your old amplifier from the car's dashboard, taking care not to break anything trying to pry off that sticky tape or disconnect those wires you didn't understand well enough to label. *inspect for any damage, such as broken ears from swinging long wires around in your engine compartment without connecting them first.*now push back all those wires from underneath–there's plenty of room now that the old amp has been removed!
*plug all those speaker wire connections back into their corresponding rca jacks on the new amp–erase any doubts by labeling them
how do you hook up a car amplifier?
this is a difficult question to answer without being able to see your amplifier in person. the inputs of the amplifier are usually set for audio input in general-not just one way, so it's important that you match any devices you want amplified with the right outputs on the amp. you can test this by connecting an audio player or old cassette deck to an output and seeing if your device receives sound out of its other end (a speaker or headphone jack). if not, then try another until you get a connection. remember to check both sides if needed! once hooked up, tune the volume for personal preference and enjoy listening experience like never before. vehicles with factory stereo should make sure there is no loose wiring connected inside vehicle because this might
is it hard to install a car amplifier?
yes it can be tricky, but isn't that what car amplifiers are for?
yes. often times the amplifier installation process is not only difficult, but it's also potentially dangerous if you don't know what you're doing.
fortunately there are plenty of tutorial videos on youtube (just look for “amplifier installation”) to make things less complicated and more safe when installing one in your own vehicle. for anyone who does not feel confident in their abilities, they should find a professional to do the job especially around an engine that needs constant monitoring and care to ensure its functioning properly with no damage done to anything else nearby. and just like any job you see advertised on craigslist or elsewhere needing repairs or services,
how do you install an amplifier?
first, turn off all power (electricity) that provides electricity to the amplifier. this includes the main breaker for your home, and any breakers or fuses that might be specific to your house's wiring. after you have determined the location of the toggle switch for this power supply, flip it to “off”. remove external wires from wall outlets and disconnect from their respective components. next, examine what type of amplifier you have. if you have a desktop amp it will usually be a square or rectangular shaped piece–take off its protective coverings so there is nothing obstructing anything. for amps with removable panels on them sometimes there are screws holding these panels in place–be sure they are fully loosened before removing any panel
where do you mount a car amplifier?
the short and sweet answer: it depends on what kind of amplifier you have.
if the amp is a very small one, which could be installed onto the car trunk or inside of your car door panels, then there really isn't much to say because such amps usually come with enough installation accessories for this type of mounting. the shorter and sweeter question might rather be where not do you mount an amplifier? 😉
if however the amp is more cumbersome in size so that it would require installing brackets outside of your vehicle, or if it's difficult to decide the best place within your vehicle for an optimal sound experience without compromising other things like comfort etc., then there are some general rules you should follow when deciding
