Hey guys,

I am hooking up my first amp and sub set. I am not looking into thumping too hard, however looking to get some better sound. I read the how-to and have some questions.

I bought the JVC KD-R300 It has RCA output in the back and my amp has RCA, so do I still need to get a line out converter?

My deck also has a power antenna/amp wire, so do I still need to hook through a fuse for power?

If these seem like noob questions, well it is because I am. Can't get to learn your car until you start, so this is step one for me.

Thanks

maybe i have an answer?

well man since i just did my first about a year ago and have learned alot about it since then i might be able to help. since you got a aftermarket radio with RCA's in the back i wouldn't think you need a line out converter. just put the RCA's straight in the radio to the amp. next for your remote cable (Blue) it would go in the amp (rem+)(pretty sure thats what it is) and I've read on here that people stick the other end into the windshield wiper fuse. thats what I've read on here. then you have a positive and GND area on the amp. of course positive goes on the red side of the battery. (red cable). and the GND will of course go on the negative side of the battery. (black cable). then to hook speakers to amp its pretty easy. positive and negative speaker wire. idk if i told you much but hopefully i helped somewhat. other people will help you too. im not the best at it. but good luck man

no, since you now have an aftermarket deck, you are able to(and should) hook it up to the deck using the antenna wire coming from the deck. you still could hook it up to a fuse but I'd rather do it right(and look cleaner) the first time

Look cleaner??? Whos gonna be takin off your fuse box cover???? Mines ran through a fuse for the amp and it works fine. I also have the stock radio though... I'll shut my mouth
