Newbie with power ?s for monitor
Hi I bought this similar monitor>> http://www.mp3car.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=25_57&products_id=42
And this wire>> http://www.mp3car.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=23&products_id=62
My question is>> My cousin and i spliced the power supply wire in my radio connection before
to install my subwoofer, and power my amp lol, so do i connect these two
wires together? because it has been spliced before for th amp so if i
connect this power supply wire to the prespiliced wires will it be ok or
not? and another thing you said that i need a ground? is there a wire you
made for the ground already or will i have to make my own?
Someone told me>> Running an amp off the same power as your radio is probably not the smartest thing to do. An amp + radio will draw too much current. I'm surprised you haven't popped the fuse yet. You should consider run the power wire for the amp directly from the battery (fused of course). Running too many devices off any one factory wire is pushing it as it was only designed to run that one device with a little headroom.
You'll see two small wires that have bare ends. One is the ground and one is 12v +. Those are the one's you'll need to hook up. Don't reverse them or you can pop the monitor.
Im very sorry guys I'm not techno savy, which wire is the ground and which is the other??? And how do I power the monitor then if I dont used the factory power radio output?? Thanks sorries not techno savy.:)
