Question: Do I need to hook up power antenna wire?

Yes, these two wires should be connected together. This is what allows the radio to retract the antenna when it isnt being used. Just because your wiring harness has a connection for this wire, it doesnt necessarily mean that your car has this kind of motorized antenna.

What do I connect the blue power antenna wire to?

Connect both blue (to power antenna) and blue/white (to remote amp terminal) wires to the blue/white (remote wire from Head Unit). Now, when you power on the radio, the antenna will also rise.

What does power antenna wire do?

When the ignition of the vehicle is turned off, the remote turn on wire stops transferring voltage and the amplifier turns off. This wire is typically for power antenna or factory amplifier turn on, do not get this wire confused with the remote turn on wire with the blue/white stripe.

Can you hook remote wire to antenna wire?

Yes. You can just crimp everything together, or run the blue remote wire to a distribution block, and then run wires from that to each device (amp, power antenna, etc). Im running 2 amps, 1 crossover, and a powered antenna off my Kenwood remote wire.

Its fully extended.

Is power antenna the same as remote?

Hence the term remote turn on wire. Almost every aftermarket head unit has a remote turn on wire. Some manufacturers call it a power antenna wire. But regardless of the label all it does is output a positive 12 volts when the head unit is turned on.

Where does the remote wire go?

The turn-on wire (also called the remote wire) is located behind the stereo. On aftermarket stereos, its usually a blue and white wire. The remote wire will tell your amplifier to turn on whenever the stereo is powered up (usually, whenever the vehicle is turned on).

What is antenna output power?

In radio transmission, transmitter power output (TPO) is the actual amount of power (in watts) of radio frequency (RF) energy that a transmitter produces at its output. The radio antennas design focuses the signal toward the horizon, creating gain and increasing the ERP.

What color is power antenna wire?

blue Ground wires are black, antenna wires are blue, and amplifier wires are blue with a white stripe.

Do you need a remote turn on wire for an amp?

What wiring and accessories do I need? Car amplifiers dont come with any wiring included. You must supply the amps power and ground wiring, an inline fuse, a remote turn-on wire, RCA cables, and speaker wires.

Where does my remote wire go?

How is antenna output power calculated?

TRP is an active measurement, in that a powered transmitter is used to transmit through the antenna. The total received power is calculated and summed up over all possible angles (hence, it is a spherical or 3d measurement) and the result is the Total Radiated Power.

What is Tx output power?

Tx power indicates the devices worst-case transmit power - the device is guaranteed to provide at least that much power. Rx sensitivity indicates the minimum amount of light required by the receiver to operate correctly.

How do I connect two amps to a remote wire?

You can splice the tip of the remote wire, just before you reach an amp, and tap 2 wires, one from each amp. Ive seen some people put a jumper wire from the remote terminal of one amp to the remote terminal of the 2nd amp. It works.

What is the power of antenna?

On many wireless receivers and antenna distribution systems is a feature called “Antenna Power.” Antenna power is 12V DC that travels up the coax antenna cable to power integrated circuits built into certain devices like powered antennas, such as the ATW-A54P, in-line RF boosters, such as the ATW-B80WB, antenna
