Hook up car radio in home, introduction: car stereo to home stereo with a psu
I think I have everything hook up just the way you said, but the PSU doesn't have a on switch. Thanks for the detailed instructions!
My goal is only to be helpful and enhance. Ziaius author Reply Negative has a black strip on it, positive is a solid color. Almost all car stereos follow the same wiring diagram. Thankfully, Amazon came to the rescue with a next day delivery of a new PSU. This is to make the stereo power up. Dunno, to be honest.
I had some old car stereo components in my garage this morning and wanted to complete this very same project. If you have a detachable face unit, you can just turn the unit off by detaching the face and your settings station pre-sets, clock should remain intact. So now, What should I do??

Most power supplies will have a set screw attachment for the positive and negative terminals.
Step 1: What You Need
I had similar concerns at first too, so I kept an eye on it the first couple days it was hooked up, but it never popped a fuse or overheated, so I just let it be and it's never done anything since. Adding a simple, cheap fuse harness with a fuse rated for your stereo can help prevent a disastrous outcome. This is a great idea, and I'm sure this could work very well.
I'm going to show you how to run a car stereo using an old PC power supply. This will make the PSU power up when you turn the switch on.
I woke up this morning and wanted to try it and your post was the first I found. I had to unplug the 12 volt supply to turn the light off, Also You can keep the PSU on.
