i got these alpine subs and amp and im trying to wire it and i cant figure it out. i put the ground on properlt and the power cable goes to the battery and thats all stright forword but theres this blue wire that say remote or something like that and ive read on google that your surposed to connect it to the blue and white wire where your radio is, so i think i got that down but then there is the subs. how do i connect them to the amp? like there this clip thing and it has 4 wires ons white another is white with balck another i gray and another is gray and black and it says positive on top and negitive on bottom and ch 1 to the left and ch2 to the right. and ive reead that you need to connect the positive wires on the subs together and connect that to the positve on the amp and same thing for the negitive. i just need help with these damn sub wire its seems so confusing
thanks dustin

Stop, don't connect anything till someone with knowledge can help you. You could screw up your amp or other stuff. It should go together fairly easy but I'm not good with explaining electronics [ probably cause I'm not good with electronics :D] so just wait till olford or someone answers your question.

That may be where you would plug in a bass control module... not 100% sure though...

ok this is long delayed but the lil square plug is a low level input it replaces you rca cables the amp came with the clip and wires they hook up like you were wireing a set of speakers up but instead it goes in the amp. like taping into each wire from your rear speakers that are not factory amped mainly + and - only amped will have more then one.inless its like a probe. most dont use them but its mainly for factory radios that dont have rca outputs. vpower amps dont sound as good with the low level ither.one wrong step in amps will burn your car to scrap. and i do know its a lot delayed lol on this message got board haha
