Hey another quick question...so Everything is hooked up right and I am 100% positive!

But the AQ amp is turning on and the Sundown amp isn't.

My confusion is w/ the remote turn on w/ the Kenwood DNX8120

Which connection do I put it too...

1) Ant. Cont.
2) P. Cont.
3) Ext. Cont.

I hooked everything up in the order of the other thread I have and no sparks or w/e. When the AQ amp turns on it's power light flashes softly. HU turns on w/ no problem and operates great.

No fuses have blown either on the amp and or the one in between the battery and the amp.

I have it hooked up to the EXT. CONT. and it's voltage is only 2.18?

The only blue wire coming out of the HU is the ANT. CONT.

ANT. CONT. = Motor Antenna Control Wire (blue)
P. CONT. = Power Control Wire (blue/white)
EXT. CONT. = External Amplifier Control Wire (Pink/Black) - This is what it's hooked to now

I don't have any experience with that unit. Hopefully someone who does will chime in.

For the time being you can run the remote wire off the amps to a fuse that gets ACC power.
So the red wire in other words? Doesn't the red wire/ignition wire only stay on during the initial ignition?

Yea you must have an issue, the blue and white is amp turn on and should provide 12 volts when the radio is on.

strip that wire bare, test it at the back of the harness hooked up to nothing. If it reads under 12 volts with that radio on something is wrong with your headunit, kinda unlikely but it is a kenwood and thats the only radio ive seen with that problem.

If the wire reads 12 volts you have an issue with your remote wire run
