Which color wire did you use for power? Red is always hot, but my switchable (green/blue) hot isn't pushing enough juice.

I have a Centech fuse block under the seat and ran a wire from that to the Jensen.

Do not use the red wire that is always hot.

What do the people do who don't have that Centech fuse block? What do they splice into?

Thanks for your reply BTW :)

Sorry about the whole undies thing :)
I read your posts before and I tried the Green w/blue stripe but it doesn't push the volts. It's a significantly smaller wire as well. Maybe a 22ga. Did this wire work for you?

When I hooked it up to the red (always hot), it worked perfect. Any other thoughts

I'm sure I used green-blue, I did'nt check volts when I did it. Just that it turned off with the key because like you I used the red first and found out the Jensen power button always stays on.
