ghead I just need to know where the wires from the oem amp go. I thought I blew the old amp because I hooked up an after market inline with the oem going into the oem amp, bought a new one removed inline aftermarket amp that now runs the subs that have great bumps but still no sound inside the car. All components have power i.e. tv's stereo, aftermarket amp, dvd, just no audio, fusues are cool, is there something else that can have a blown fuse from the oem amp, i.e. oem crossover etc.. It's just like an after market amp sound comes in and the speaker wire going out of the amp goes somewhere?

The oem amp typically has a set of twisted wires coming out of it and going directly to the speakers, there isnt anything else in between. Im a little confused, it looks like you hooked an aftermarket amplifier into the factory amps inputs, which would destroy the factory amp in a heartbeat, as the factory amp is designed for a .5 watt (not sure of spec but not very much at all) input and you forced 100 watts (or whatever your amp is) into it. If you tapped into the factory amp for a signal to go INTO your amp, that should be ok unless your amps high level input has issues.

Its similar to an aftermarket amplifier except it uses speaker for in and out of itself (no RCAs)

A side note, if you have a DVD player, TVs, and I am assuming an aftermarket stereo, I would not worry about the factory amplifier at all, since (if you have any decent headunit at all) it will be cleaner and probably have as much if not more power. I am curious to what kind of car you have this installed into.

ghead Oh man its a 328i 98 but I got the answer from a archive post from another member. It's always something easy. The blue/white wire has to be hooked up because it tells the amp to tourn on. Duhhhhh. One man's problem solved is another Man's good fortune. Now I'm bumpn again

hehe glad you fixed it, rollin' without tunes is a crime in 43 states, and a misdemeanor in the others.
