i foolishly bought a pro plus sub and i dont really know how to wire it, it is the pab 1001 model, i have the sound going in but i dont know which wires are which to power it. i have got a ignition/switch wire, a mute wire, a front pos and neg and a rear pos and neg wire. i need to know which wire does what.

I'm not sure I understand the question your asking. Do you want to know how to install the amplifier or how to install the subwoofer to it?

Ignition goes to an ACC lead. That is, something that has power when the ignition is on. Most aftermarket decks have a turn on lead that you can use. The ignition wire is what turns on your amp. That's why you want it wired to something that only has power when the vehicle is on so that it doesn't drain your battery when the car is off.

Mute wire may be for an add on module but without knowing what amp you have I can't be sure....

Front and rear + and - inputs are new to me. I've seen dual power supplies before that will require more than one + and - power cable run but they aren't usualy marked front and rear. Are you sure it's not the speaker outs for a 4ch amp?

You should only have the RCA inputs left. They will be coming from the deck.

Lemme know what amp you have and I can help you more. The wiring configuration your saying doesn't sound right at all. You should only need power, ground, and remote to power up the amp.

Could you possibly be confusing the front & rear + & - inputs with left & right + & - inputs?

My active sub has both high level and RCA inputs, of course, along with the appropriate +12V, negative and remote turn on leads. It has it's own low pass filters & gain control, along with a phase inversion switch.

The high level inputs are L+, L- & R+, R- and can be connected to either front or rear speakers, depending on how you choose to install it - mine is hooked up using low level inputs to the rear channel outputs of the deck (I have no rear speakers) so that I can adjust the subwoofer levels using the front/rear fader.

Appreciate this is a really old post but I don't suppose anyone found out what the power connections were?
