Where to hook up the REM on stock HU?

Where do I connect the REM wire from my amp to my stock head unit? (6th gen accord)

I already connected the other wires with a PAC Line convertor, all I need is where to connect that REM wire? I searched, but only found half answers..

Connect to a switch? The fuse? I dunno!

Thanks alot!

ignition switched wire. Then the amps will turn on when the key is on and turn off when it's off. There isnt' a remote wire coming out of the stock deck.

yellow with red stripe? It has to have it, use a voltmeter and figure out which one comes on when you turn the key to accessory. A $2 test light would work on this connector if you don't have a meter, there's nothing it can hurt on this line.

thanks for the quick replies. well, the back of my HU has two plugs, one big one (with the diagram above) and the second one, which has solid colors (red, blue, etc.). the second one is connected to a big black box, which i assume is the security measures thing.

well the first main plug does not have this yellow with red strip.
Ill try and get a voltmeter.

thanks again.

Tap a power off the cigarette lighter. It's the easiest and simpliest switched ACC line that i know of.

you could try a fuse tap or tap into the back of the fuse box. Personally since your PAC LOC is probably behind the radio I'd stick with the radio power wire.

If you are in dire straights for an accessory wire, the main ignition switched wire is white with black and it's HUGE 10 or 12 gauge coming from the ignition.


*edit***

I was just thinking, what is your LOC(lin out convertor) hooked up to for means of power. That would work just dandy since the amps need to be on whenever the LOC is one and vice versa.

thats cool, thanks though man. we used your voltmeter method, and found out that it was acutally a white wire with red stripe. so when its off, the amp is off, and so forth.

but another problem came up, if i turn off the unit (push the button), theres a loud constant boom coming from the woofer, but our alternate solution was to not turn it off at all (just leave the volume all the way down.)

but when after i put the key to the 0 position, it goes boom, then off. any idea why?

it's because you're going through a passive LOC and how the deck works. When you turn the deck off the outputs float so the LOC freaks out and will just let noise through. When there's no endpoint to a connection(like when the outputs of the deck float) the wires become a huge antenna picking up any crap it can find which is usually a really low signal that the subs will reproduce, it's happening on the highs too, but it's more audible in the lower freqs.

Gotcha... thanks

But I have another problem now ...

I have an Alpine CDCHANGER in the trunk (I have the Cassette HeadUnit). So yesterday, It played CD's fine, this morning it played fine up until one point then all of a sudden it doesnt work any more. The changer ejects and moves and everything, but it just goes through the cds, like it isnt reading it. I've tried all CDs, originals and copied, but it none work. The only thing I remember doing was changing CD's too rapidly (by pressing the numbers on the HU.)

But I dunno..any ideas?
