Sorry to keep buging you guys but this is not as easy as I thought it would be. So I mounted the amp under the passenger seat and tried using velcro to keep it in place, but it's not working. I want to know how you usually mount amp in that area, also is there a certain way that you tune the amp? I haven't even touched it yet because I wanted some advise before I mess it up.

Usually your amp is screwed down in place, often using the screws supplied with the amp. If your mounting it under your seat then your would have to remove the seat to screw it down, I for one don't like screw anything into the Z but that's me.

As for tuning the amp, start with your gains turned down low and your headunit turned up high. Turn up the gains till you hear distortion then back it off a bit. Set your crossover for around 80hz.

thanks. I feel the same way about screwing things into the car....could you recommend any other alternative?

I like to glue 1/2" MDF wood strips to the car and screw to that. The glued stips pop right off with some effort and leave no real trace. Use a metal 5 minute epoxy, then use a screw that won't insert past your 1/2" thick wood.

OK, so the poping sound was the rear speakers that were being sent into the amp and I think they were just getting to much power sent into them. Yesterday I worked late into the night and redid everything and left with no feeling in my legs. Now the tweeters and the front speakers are running to the crossover and the rear speakres are going to the HU. Before I put everything away I made sure and checked that everything was working correctly...and it was. The rear both worked and so did the fronts, as I drive away fron my friends house now the front speakers don't work but the rear work fine. Also, now my video doesn't work and you can only hear the sound from the video and when going to source setup all the other options are gone except for audio setup. I have an Alpine INA-W900BT, if anyone knows what I did wrong please tell me because I'm about to take a hammer to the system. Thanks
