What to connect to remote AMP on lead for Bose system?
Just starting my carpc project and ran into problem already just from the stereo part...
My 1999 Pathfinder comes with Bose system, which has 2 in-door amp for the front speakers and one amp for the rear two doors. I purchased a wiring harness from a local stereo store and they seem to match just fine, including a "remote amp turn on" lead.
Next I purchased a Clarion DXZ465MP that comes with 2 pairs of external amp RCA connectors, however there's no wire for "remote amp turn on lead", after I connected all wires and fired it up..... there's no sound at all.
After searching the forum I found that I might need to connect this "remote amp turn on lead" to somewhere, so I spliced it into the front speaker (+) and surprisingly I got sound coming out from the front speakers only. So I thought it's probably because of the amperage on the speaker wire is probably not enough to wake up the rear amp, so I tapped it into "power antenna" instead, and magically I got sound coming from all speakers.
1. is this the safe way to do it? If not, where should I connect this "remote amp turn on" to?
2. Also I got loud static sound when I turn the volume all the way down to zero, is this because the "power antenna" lead is constantly sending power?
Appreciate any help :yield:
