Hook up the orange wire and see what happens. If it turns on, then there is an issue with the auto sense.

sometimes the RCA input from a converter just isn't enough juice to turn it on. Use the remote turn on and shoot me a note with how it sounds!

Thanks guys for the feedback, I figured this might be the case. I ordered the other kit from Arc last night for the remote connector (that's an expensive way of not cutting wires lol). It will be a couple of days, but when it gets in and I sort it out I will follow up with performance feedback

HD sells an aux power plug that's 10 bucks! That will connect to you aux power in your fairing and leave you a lead to connect to remote.

This is where I ended up with gains. Unless someone has a reasonable objection, I'm buttoning it up lol

btw, sounds freaking awesome.
