  • Wiring into car stereo w/o HU

    I have a stock amp in my car and have a list of all the pins for the input and output of the HU and the amp, howeve, there is one pin for "enable AMP" that comes from the HU. I haven't made the step into purchasing a multimeter to measure anything, but is there any chance anyone knows what signal is being put out through this line? I'm looking to wire in my computer without a HU. Thanks

    most probably 12v

    It will be done sometime in the next generation.

      My guess is it's the 12V signal that comes on when the HU is on, to let the amp know to turn on.

        Yes it's 12v. I have hooked up the remote lead from my amp to the ignition before. Had a deck with a blown power antenna lead.

          Its a 12v input on amps and most headunits supply about 0.3A current to it when the HU switches on.
