audio setup beginning
Well, I got some shitty news, I dropped my Diamond 4v2 600 watt channel accidentally as I was trying to setup some basic wiring steps as I was watching the football game,but Im hoping it still works.
Anyhow, first things first I took out the inline 60Amp fuse inside the fuseholder of my power cables. I ran a dry run on my couch and this is what I got so far. I attached the the blue reote turn on in the remote turn in hole of the diamond 4v2. I installed the ground and red in the 12v and ground with the looped end toward the other end (battery of the bike).
i read in the manual that the 4v2 gives you a set of options either bridged/normal (with RCA jacks) setup, so I put them both in just to understand this crap. so far thats it.
First question I have:
Inside the power kit, were a set of seperate speaker wires and american hardbag also sent me a seperate set of blue coated 16 gauge wire also, not sure what thats about?
Im looking at my 18 touring service manual and went to the 9.33 boom box infotainment section just to see what the back of the headunit looks like behind my frame mounted fairing.
So here goes: Most obvious question , where do I install the front and rear speaker cable leads from my headunit to the 4 channel amp?
Second question: Where does the remote wire go from the head unit to the receiver?, Im assuming? or splice it into somewhere else?
3rd question: Im assuming Im gonna have to do some soldering, and thats fine! Just unsure what I need to solder in terms of speaker cables from the amp to the front speakers or to the radio harness?
Ifd its to the radio harness, do I remove the radio harness and match up the correct color codes using my service manual wiring diagrams in the back?
4th question how do I install the DSR1?
And final question, for now, if I am to remove the stock radio harness and solder wires, how do the front audio 14+ plug n' play harnesses work, am I installing those in addition to soldering or no?
And finally Ive got an extra set of RCA inputs the guy from American Hardbag sold to me, not sure what to do with those?
PS...On the end of the plug n play front audio harness, there is a seperate attachment that looks like some sort of narrow type of plug, kind of weird looking.
ALso, where does the fuse for the DSR1 go? It says between the DSR1 battery and the DSR1, no idea what the hell there talking about?
I know how to install the split backbone and the rear lids, cause I need to drill a hole in each of the lids to gain access inside the lid to run a wire for future lid speakers, but the front audio Im a bit rusty on.
BTW..I shaked the diamond amp 4v2 and I can hear something light rattling inside, that cant be good for anybody.
Here are some pics hopefully you guys understand what in the hell I'm talking about before I go play in traffic, losing my mind trying to figure this out.
I can only upload 5 pictures but I have more!!
