Hi everyone, I am running into some issues.
I have installed and spliced the dual 8” skar sub and amp kit into my 2016 Mazda6 i grand touring WITH BOSE.
Here’s what I have done:
-Positive to ANL fuse then to my amp.
Automotive tire Hood Motor vehicle Automotive design Automotive exterior

-Spliced REM into 2D of a wiring diagram (it’s a 12v turn on)
-Spliced both positive (pink and gray) and negative (light green and blue) to Red (positive) and white (negative) RCA interconnects
Automotive design Automotive lighting Gas Audio equipment Technology

Gadget Audio equipment Electrical wiring Cable Electronic engineering

-Ran ground from amp to side part where i could bolt onto after sanding paint off to get to metal
Automotive tire Bumper Motor vehicle Automotive exterior Trunk

-Ran speaker wire from amp to sub
Blue Electrical wiring Gadget Computer hardware Cable

Road surface Asphalt Automotive tire Electrical wiring Cable

-Turned gain on, and turned fader up inside my radio, as well as tried to use the plug in remote to turn it on (even though it’s not needed because i’m splicing into rear pre-amp channels already)

Anything would help, as I am a little frustrated at this:/ Thank you for your time!

You didnt say whats wrong, but you cant have both wires of the RCA to the same splice. And dear god please do not use those taps or wire nuts. They are a little more expensive, but i recommend Posi-Taps.

You need to run the Pos of the left RCA to the proper positive wire, then the Neg of the left RCA to its wire. Then repeat for the right side. It looks like you have the Pos/Neg to the same wire in the car.
