    Re: installing aftermarket sub and amp in my 01 Deville

    well it works great now, the problem was that I completely disconnected the factory sub instead of leaving it connected and tapping the wires, I guess if the factory amp doesn't detect the factory sub then it just doesn't send the subwoofer the signal. So probably a rookie mistake and definately didn't think it would take me 3 days to get it right.

    This is GREAT. I just installed my amp and sub. I had everything working and then had the exact same problem. I thought it was the overly priced best buy junk too. I knew this forum would come in handy. Thank you capital10 and others for the leg work.

    Re: installing aftermarket sub and amp in my 01 Deville

    I just installed Fusion 300d amp and MTX sledgehammer (thunder 8500) and it works fine but in the driver and front passenger seat you cannot really feel it at all, but you can see the mirror going nuts and sitting in the back seat you feel it a lot.
    I used to have the system in a 95 cutlass coupe so i know what settings are needed on the amp to make it hit hard without going past the limits of the sub.
    I have pushed the settings past my old settings on the cutlass and still barely felt in the driver seat but very prominent in the back seats.
    Any ideas why this is? It also causes Auto Volume Control to increase volume drastically while sitting still.

    another thing you can do is put resistors in the wires and completely disconnect the factory sub. The resistors will make the amp think the sub is still connected.

    One way to wire the remote wire is if you can get the factory stereo out. Splice the remote wire and that shoud work fine

    Re: installing aftermarket sub and amp in my 01 Deville

    I set my subs and amp and try Errol for a minute but I think it shuts off when I turn the bass up too high. What could be happening? And when I turn the car off and back on it works again. I hooked em up with the stock stereo. And only have one set o wires tapped into the stock sub. Any suggestions? And also my CD player doesn't work any more after hooking them up, I have a 2001 deville
