    2007 Mustang Shaker 500 help

    Okay I've read read and reread almost all the threads on this forum that has to do with mustangs. I have a really good idea how I'm going to do all the wiring and what not. The only problem I'm having is where do I wire this 5v voltage regulator to? I have the radio harness adapter installed and on the amp half of the adapter there is a set of rca cables and two blue amp turn on switches. I'm assuming I would run it to there? If someone could let me know that would be great.

    Thanks

    All cars run on 12v DC... there's no "live 5v" wire anywhere really in the dash unless it's a logic bus (never use these, your airbag might deploy or drive-by-wire will keep accelerating, etc). What's the 5v regulator for?

    BTW, the amp turn on wires are 12v as well, just low current, all they do is flip a relay to turn on the amps.

    With the mustang shaker system the car has 2 amps from the factory to power the 2 subs. The amp turn on is 5v which is supplied from the head unit. Since I removed the head unit though I need to use the 5v regulator to convert the 12v to 5v. I'm just not sure where to hook up the regulator. The wireharness has 2 amp turn on wires (I'm assuming because there are 2 amps). Should I wire a regulator to both or am I able to just splic those two wires together and then run one 12v line to them and place the regulator somewhere on the 1 line.

    Connect the 5V output on your converter to the two 5V lines on your harness.

    Connect the 12V input on the converter to the amp turn on on your powersupply.

    Okay I get where to run the 5v regulator but I'm not 100% where to run the 12v feed. Do I run it from my m2-atx power supply using like a molex adapter to send the 12v feed?

    If so would it be okay if I ran 3 12v lines off of that molex adapter for the 3 amps I will have? I don't see why not because the amp isn't really using the feed for power just as an indicator to turn on.

    Per the manual:

    Loud amplifier pops when PC starts. If your PC is connected to your car amplifier, you
    will hear a loud pop when the computer is first started. The M2-ATX has an ‘anti-thump’
    control that will keep your amp OFF while the PC starts. Simply connect J6 to your
    amplifier remote control pins to activate the ‘anti-thump’ feature.
