How do I install an antenna amplifier on my car?

I have a Honda Civic?

There are kits to do this. Basically you'll actually replace your old antenna with a larger one. Its easy and takes about 1 hour.

You should get some instruction included when you buy the amplifier. It should simply connect inline in the factory antenna cable.

The amplifier needs to be installed inline with the cable running to your antenna, and it needs power. The best place to put it would be behind the radio. You will need to remove the radio and then install it according to the manufacturers instructions.

Pull the radio out. Behind the radio you will see the antenna connection, it looks like the plugs used to connect your TV to the DVD Player. Plug the antenna cable into the amplifier, then plug the amplifier into the radio. Some amplifiers have a switch, you can mount the switch below the dash to turn it off or on.

Negative cable should be disconnected first. Attach the fuse of the power cable to the battery and put fuse. power cable can be turned on now. Connect the RCA connectors to the main unit. Amp should be secured, if it is placed in back we can place it directly to subwoofers. car negative can be reconnected. Test your systems work.
