Re: Studley Stereo

yah and the damn thing did not work:
I ran the main power from the battery to the amp(took 3 hrs trying to make that perfect and hide it!)

ran the ground out!

plugged in the audio cables (those red and white cables!)

wired up the blue cord that hookd up to the amp that tells it when to fire up and what not!

P.S. the scary thing is....somethin could not be working! the amp or the head unit! The head unit would not even light up! Am i doin something wrong?? would the crossovers have anything to do with it??

Re: Studley Stereo

No crossover should not have anything to do with it. Did the amp light up? You will not have sound with out the head unit on. How do you have it wired?

Re: Studley Stereo

what do you mean "the scary thing is....somethin could not be working!"? of course soemthing is not working... make sure you have the actual stereo wired correctly.... if it doesnt light up, then you arent getting power to it... that doesnt have anything to do with the amp

Re: Studley Stereo

but the power goes through the amp! No I do not think the amp lit up as there is nowhere for the amp to light up, this is a older amp! well I have it wired from the battery to the amp..audio connected to the head unit as well... and the blue wire that tells it to cut off and what not! this system has been sitting in storage..but well packed not like it was just lying around!

Re: Studley Stereo

so what if you have power going through the amp? you HAVE to have power going through the deck for anything to work. start there... get your deck to work, and then trouble shoot the amp

Re: Studley Stereo

but if power is not going through the amp then it definitely will not light up the head so how do I know if the power is running through the amp?? How do I know if the head does not work but the amp does??

Re: Studley Stereo

do you have power going to the head unit?? the head unit should be powered separately from the amp. remember, the amp does not run the head unit, the head unit runs the amp. get the head unit working under it's own power and then the amp will most likely work. also, make sure the deck has both power wires hooked up. should be a constant power wire (from battery) and an turn on lead (from ignition) if you get that and still don't have lights on the head unit then it is probably fried.

Re: Studley Stereo

the power to the deck should not be running through the amp... the amp should be powered directly from the battery with a wire coming from the deck telling it when to be on and when to be off... the deck should be wiring to the stock radio wiring, shutting it off when the key is turned off...
