How to install car amplifier

Car audio amplifier is a tool that plays music inside a car. This amplifier is not a built in tool. That means you will not get it while buying a car. You have to buy it separately and have to install it in your car. Installing this has some specific procedures. Here you will some basic instructions about .
First, you have to disconnect the terminals. This is not mandatory but this is just for safety reason. Now, you have to run the power cable to the amplifier from the battery. You have to find a ground point. It has to be closer to the amplifier. Make sure that the point is attached to the frame of the vehicle. The connection also has to be solid.

Run your power cable to the amplifier just as you have done with the power cable. If your ground point has any color, then remove it. Use a sandpaper to do this job. You can use it also to remove any rust. The connection will not be solid if the metal is not shiny. If you want to attach a ring terminal with the ground point, then this is the right time to do that. After this you have to wrap up the ground point with something that is non conducting. Then use some spray paint or any kind of finish that will protect the ground point from rust.
Do not forget to turn on the remote and to run the RCA cables. You have to pull out the head unit out of the mounting location. Fasten the remote turn on wire with the wiring harness of the head unit. Now, decide which amplifier will contain which RCA cable. Keep the RCA cables away from any type of power cables. Keep them away especially from the amps power cable.
Now, let all the wires of the speakers run. Fasten the wires with the amplifier. After this turn the remote on and add the power to the ground. Attach the fuse holder. Always attach it near the battery. If your battery terminals are very sophisticated, then do not forget to give proper protection and connect them in the right way. Attach the other cables with the battery. It will be better if you can get your battery terminals a brand new cover.
Before turning on the amplifier, check it properly. Turn the gain of the amplifier down. After that turn your system on and listen carefully. Check whether everything is working properly or not. Listen to the sound carefully. Think whether you can hear any noise or not, and verify how much noise you can hear. Verify whether there is any distortion exists that is audible. If everything is completely all right, then move on to the next step.
Your next step is to think how you will give power to the amp, where your amp will stay, etc. With that your amplifier will be fixed perfectly. If you follow all these steps then you will be able to install your amplifier safely and properly.

Nissan recovery stories:

At 2:46 in the afternoon on March 11, an unprecedented disaster struck Japan, claiming over 24,000 lives and threatening the safety and livelihoods of millions in the country.

For Nissan, some five staff and 17 family members perished in the devastating 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami, with more than 50 dealerships and parts suppliers damaged, as production across Japan shut down completely.

At the Yokohama headquarters, which felt the quake although 250 kms away, an Earthquake Crisis Committee of executives met within minutes, but the magnitude of destruction and potential impact on Japan and Nissan had no blueprint.

The response would test the resilience and imagination of company staff, with heroes emerging to help lead Nissan, its many customers and stakeholders to safer ground.

For Miyagi branch manager Hiroyuki Sato, who lost two staff and was himself listed among missing after the tsunami struck, a slow evacuation from the disaster zone gave insight into how great its impact.“I had seen the tsunami with my own eyes from the coastal town of Onagawa, and roads were now covered with debris and impassable. On the fourth or fifth day... I could finally contact the office by cell phone, and when my boss answered, he exclaimed: "You're alive." I apologized for worrying others, and then I contacted the dealer president and other executives to tell them that I had survived. I learned about the status of our customers, the dealership and the showroom.”

Amid the growing tragedy, commitment to those losing cars and family mobility remained top priority, while the company offered Nissan LEAFs and other vehicles to relief efforts.

Masaki Kobayashi, president of Nissan Prince Miyagi, said resources were deployed to deal with the crisis and help those most in need.“Miyagi Prefecture is very big and the area near the ocean felt the brunt of the tsunami, while other areas basically just endured the earthquake. We have 26 car outlets, and there was tremendous damage at five new and two used car outlets. We tried to get vehicles from centers like this to the coastal and damaged areas, while also looking to come up with a recovery plan, but at the same time, gasoline supplies became thin. Our customers and our own staff couldn't drive around, and this went on for two weeks. It became very important to direct all company resources in the same direction.”

Slowly, vehicles made it to the disaster zone, while at the Iwaki factory in Fukushima, General Manager Nobuhiro Ozawa and team faced their own extensive structural damage.

Ozawa's plant produces over 370,000 Nissan and Infiniti engines yearly, and Iwaki's "Gambappe" recovery -- even after a second quake struck in early April -- became a symbol of Japan's resilience amid the tragedy.“Everyone was safe -- we were lucky. Our factory infrastructure, though, except for electricity, was completely down with damage very serious. Skylights, cables and apparatus hung from the rafters, and we really couldn't enter the factory immediately. We thought it would take a very long time to recover.“

That moment came mid-May, marked by a return Iwaki visit by CEO Carlos Ghosn.

However, Nissan's parts and car pipeline had faced an equal test after the earthquake.

A huge vessel with 600 Nissan LEAFs left Yokohama just before disaster struck, but Japanese ports and highways were then closed, with cars and auto parts for export or transfer destined to sit without resourceful action.

At the logistics centers of Honmoku, Kyushu, Aichi and Fuji, which see 400 container shipments daily, the lockdown of the supply pipeline became General Manager Kiyoshi Onoe's problem to solve.

After immediately ensuring his team and facilities were safe, a comeback strategy was mapped out.

“After the earthquake, we really focused on reviving operations, knowing we couldn't do it by ourself. It required huge support from many, but two key factors emerged: Colleagues from 10 overseas factories came to Honmoku -- not to obtain their own car parts, but instead to sort out worldwide factory allocation and to share existing supply, thus prioritizing market needs. These factories had stopped overtime and weekend work, so that helped in our resume shipments without confusion. The other key was staff at Honmoku, Kyushu, Aichi and Fuji never gave up in trying to ship parts and reopen the pipeline. That was the biggest factor in recovery.”

Today, Honmoku and other Nissan wharfs, factories and dealerships are now back on-line through the overwhelming team response to the crisis. Still, the impact of that day in March will be felt for years, although Nissan can look back on its staff's heroic response to the greatest natural disaster in Japanese history and know its people stood tall.
