    Is there anyone who can help?
    I have a 200 watt 4-channel Memphis amp.
    I want to hook it up, but have no clue on how to do it.
    Is there anybody that could give me instructions on how to do it?
    Maybe a website?
    I suck at stereo stuff.

    To what tho?
    I think I might just bring this thing by the stereo shop instead.
    I got it in a trade for my 88 civic.
    The dude I got it from trades more shit than the pilgrims...

    if you really have no clue what to do it would be best to bring it somewhere or find a friend that knows what they are doing and have them help you

    Dude, this is so easy.

    -Run the power (red) to the battery. Make sure it is fused w/in 12 inches. Attach to B+ of amp.

    -Run the ground (black) to a vehicle ground. Just find a screw/bolt and unscrew it and take of the paint under it to the bare metal for a true ground. Attach to B- of amp.

    -Run remote lead (blue/white) to the deck's remote turn on. Also run RCA's at the same time, red to red, black to black.

    -Run speaker wires to the correct speakers, again + to +, - to -.

    -Install fuse and enjoy.

    Or if you can't understand a thing I'm saying, like e sol said have someone else do it for you.

    :D

    People should learn to pay attention or just figure out a way to auto lock threads that are x amount of time old.
