How To Hook Up A Battery Charger (Hook Up Your Car)?. You can hook up a car amp to a battery charger inside your house and use it as a glorified power source for varied needs.
- You need a pair of pliers, a battery charger of 12 Volts, an amp kit (these will cost you only about $19) that comes attached with input/output cables, some blue wire (the color is to help you distinguish; it may probably come with the amp kit), and ground and red wires that could also be present in the kit.
- Snip about 2-3 inches of blue wire, leave the metal strips at each end bare; cut away the rubbery portions. Hook one end of this to the 12V node. Hook the other end to the REM node, sitting adjacent.
- Take the battery charger in hand now; this is your power supply source. Hook the red (positive) terminal to the same 12V node you just worked with. Take the black (negative) terminal and hook it up to the grounder node on the car amp. They may be very close to each other, so make extra certain that they do not touch and that there is a noticeable gap between them.
- Set the charger to 12 volts. Plug the charger in and turn it on. The car amp will register the same with an indication light or some such feature.
- Your speaker system will have thin wires, red and black, with each end probably shaped like a two-pronged metal element. Use your pliers and know-how on these wires to smush or push things firmly in place. Fix the red and black nodes to apt points on the car amp, leading up from the speaker system.
- Screw everything in, if screws are the design elements on your car amp battery.
- Take the input wires, find apt slots on the car amp, and plug them both in – white into white, black into red. Connect the other ends to electronic devices you may be using, like phones or speakers.
This is how you make a car amp device work inside the house for your own personal requirements.
