    Halfway through my boot build, got quires on wiring things in.

    Basically got some questions about wiring things in.

    First of all i got my power, RCA's, Rem lead and earth cable.

    IS there any way i could wire the neons into the Amp/Power cable (before the amp) to gain its power, or would i need another cable?

    Ive got a sound box which im planning to wire to the neons, so they flash to the beat of the music.

    But whats the best way to do it, power lead ( from where?) > to a switch > to the sound box > to the inverter ( also wire in a earth to the inverter to the bodywork) > to the neons.

    Will that work?


    Next, im putting a ground loop and a bass controller in, do i just plug the RCA's in, then connect the RCA's out of the ground loop to the bass controller, then the RCA's from that to the AMP. is that correct?

    Last of all, im wanting a power cap into the circuit, so do i connect the power cable into it (from the battery?), then connect it to the Amp.

    That correct? also i heard when wiring it in for the first time, i should remove the fuse on the power cable, and connect the cables up, and in the place of the fuse, put a bulb in, and wait for it to go dim ( so its powered up)

    Is that correct to?

    Sorry for the essay, thanks very much.

    Edit:Thanks for moving, i realised it was in the wrong section as soon as i pressed submit.

    cap:

    you need to use battery > cap > amp, but cap must be max 30cm away from amp.

    never heard of the bulb thing mate and ive installed a heck of a lot of systems some people take the fuse out get it all set then put the fuse in with the engine off, tbh i dont anymore i just make sure the engine is off and that i wire it up last.

    cant see a reason why you cant use the power lead to run the neons aslong as you run it off neatly (can get splitter box's) if not im sure there is a live you could run from the back lights? id have the neons on a switch if you can aswell just so you have the option to turn them off, as if your running off the live for the amp then it will have constant power

    Thanks guys, ive decided against having the neons now.

    Does the power ap have to be as close as 30 cm, i think the closest i can get it to is about 80cm

    EDIT: just seen this on that site

    Ideally the power capacitor should be as close as possible to the amplifier. Within a couple of feet is acceptable.

    So hoping thats going to be fine.
