Default Installing amp, any tips

At the suggestions if many post here I picked up a RF 300x2 amp and a set of polk speakers. Any tips or advice for installing the amp? I bought a wiring kit and mounting bracket for the bike from Krazy cycles (general wiring kit with inline fuse). Anything specific I'll need?

I bought a bracket and wiring kit for my bike. It's just the general amp kit with power, ground, and remote with inline fuse.

My only question about the RF amp is can I just wire it like I have all other car amps in the past? from photos it appears to only have plugs for it. I bought mine new uninstalled on ebay from a guy who bought it but never installed or opened it.

"Variable 4-6 volt hi level DC offset voltage input turn-on control"

It turns on when it sees speaker current from stereo.

I have not bought an amp yet but I am curious how your install goes. Get pics.

You use speaker input to amp.
When amp sees voltage on speaker wires coming in it will turn itself on.

Easy peasy.

There is a range dial on side 4-6 just leave at 4.
