    ive heard it goes somewhere in the back of the cdplayer, but my cd player only has 2 speaker outputs and a, + & - for power.

    Hook it to whatever turns your deck on. I'm assuming your deck turns off when the car turns off?

    i hate to say this cause its dirty....hook it up to the "a" wire as that would be the accessory wire.... just means whenever ur car is at the on position the amp will be on with or withoutthe deck being on (say if u dont have a faceplate on) but itll work :)

    if it is a stock deck you can hook it up like the guys said above, if its aftermarket the deck has a provison for the amp wire turn on lead(usually next to or the same wire as the power antenae lead) or if you relly want to be cool, run a hot power wire to the amp and put a toggle switch in the middle of the power wire(i.e. + battery 16guage fed inside to the togle switch mounted(your choice) then from the toggle switch to the remote turn on lead) this way you can turn it on or off when you dont want the bass going(if your on the phone or listening to talk radio its really nice to be able to turn off the amp)

    as well you could power the same toggle switch off of the accesory side(something that is only on when the car is in acc or run) that way you cant leave the amp powered on when your car is not on.

    you will forget a switch and the battery will die. if you have it between the acc. wire and the amp its ok. if the deck is aftermarket there should be an extra blue wire or blue with white stripe. that's the acc. wire.

    just installed a toggle swith and ran the wire from the "Remote Turn-on Input" to the pisitive terminal of the amp, seems 2 work fine but is this a problem? or will this do just fine.

    You hooked it up wrong..

    There should be 3 connections on your amp, negative, constant, and remote.

    Negative = Ground
    Constant = Battery
    Remote = Hook this up to whatever turns your deck on, or if you have a multimeter, you can check to see which wire from your deck will have 12v coming out of it, but it's just easier hooking it to the wire that turns your deck on and off.

    well the way he did it works, just so long as you always remember to turn it off before you get out of you car for extended periods of time. I'm stupid and usually in a hurry or have something on my mind so I'd forget it.

    ummmm wow. First off....rampage, blech but we'll leave that be for now

    Second, where are you mounting this amp? where have you drawn power from?

    The wiring for your stock deck has an output wire for the power antenna. It will be black-red or pink-blue. Splice off this wire and run it into the remote turn-on for your amp

    ok well every1 seems 2 be saying:

    power antenna, Acc ignition, or "remote turn on input" in the back of the head unit cd player whatever.

    um this cd player is phillips, and doesnt have a power antenna, or remote turn on input wire,

    so after thats been settled, the others are saying to hook the wire to accesory, or a toggle switch,

    after the wire hits the switch or ignition were does it return too? :?

    to the "remote turn on" terminal on your amp

    this is NOT the constant 12v power
