    If He's already got a Head unit installed, it should be a simple matter of:
    1. Power to Amp (Big Red Cable between Amp & Car Battery)
    2. Ground Amp ( Black cable out of amp, connected to something metal, usually punched down with a Screw within a couple of feet of the amp)
    3. Remote to Amp (Thin wire out of the head unit into the amp, allows you to control on/off power to the amp "remotely" from the head unit.
    4. Signal to Amp (RCA out of Head unit into the amp)
    5. Signal to Speakers: Speaker wire out of Amp, into Speakers
    6. Pop in a Bass Mechanic CD
    7. Drive around trying to set off car alarms! [frank]
