No volume on all left side speakers


Determining the Cause of the Problem Let's assume our system has a head unit, a crossover, a two channel amplifier and two door speakers with only the right speaker working (the left speaker is not working). If the door speakers are behind the door panels then we want to make sure the speaker is the problem before removing the panel. We'll work backwards starting with the amplifier and ending at the head unit. Testing for a Speaker Problem With the vehicle and the stereo turned off disconnect the speaker wires for both the left and right speakers at the amplifier. Now connect the left speaker to the right amplifier output (which we know works). Turn on the stereo system and make sure the balance is set to the middle position.If the speaker still doesn't work then the problem is somewhere between the amplifier and the speaker Testing for an Amplifier Problem Now we'll need to see if the amplifier channel is bad. Put the left speaker back on the left amplifier channel and the right speaker on the right amplifier channel. This returns the speaker wiring to its original configuration. Again, with the vehicle and stereo off unplug the RCA cables from the amplifier's input and switch them so the left cable is in the right input and vice versa. Turn on the stereo system. Testing for an RCA Cable Problem For any intermediate components between the amplifier and the head unit follow these steps for each one. We only have a crossover so we'll just do this once. Begin by testing the RCA cables between the intermediate component and the amplifier. Unplug both RCA cables from the intermediate component's output. Now plug the working channel's RCA cable into the non-working side of the crossover. In our case the working channel is the right so plug the right RCA cable from the amplifier into the left side of the crossover. Turn on the stereo system.
If the right channel continues to work then you know the problem is in the RCA cables between the amp and the crossover. esting for a Crossover or Equalizer Problem At the input of the intermediate component (in our case the crossover) flip the RCA cables around (left to right input and vice versa). Turn on the stereo system.
If the right channel continues to work and the left channel continues to not work then you know the problem is in the intermediate component. Replace or repair this component.
If the problem is now in the right speaker and the left speaker works then the problem lies before the crossover. Turn off the stereo system and return the RCA cables to their normal places.
Testing for a Head Unit or RCA Cable Problem Pull out the head unit from the dash so you can access the RCA cables. Unplug both RCA cables from the head unit. Do not disconnect any other wiring. Plug the right RCA cable into the left channel of the head unit. Turn on the stereo system.

I don't know how to use behringer feedback destroyer DSP1124p


Determine where in the mixer's signal path to connect the unit. Your options are:
1. One or two individual microphone channels via the mixer's CHANNEL INSERT in/out jacks.
2. The monitor mix output via the mixer's MONITOR OUT jacks.
3. The main mix output via the mixer's MAIN OUT jacks.

  • 2 Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from CHANNEL INSERT OUT jacks on the desired mixer channel to INPUT RIGHT or LEFT on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel for individual microphone channels. Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the OUTPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel to that mixer channel's CHANNEL INSERT IN jack.
  • 3 Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the mixer's MONITOR OUT jacks to the INPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel for the monitor signal path. Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the OUTPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel to the monitor amplifier INPUT jack or amplified monitor speaker INPUT jacks.
  • 4 Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the mixer's MAIN OUT jacks to the INPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel for the main mix (FOH) signal path. Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the OUTPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel to the main amplifier INPUT jack or amplified house speaker INPUT jacks.

    How do u know if A sony xplode XM-552ZR amp is on and how do u connect it to a sony xplode cdx-gt570 head unit.


    Just to the left of the output (speaker) terminals, near the top of the amp, there's an LED marked "POWER/PROTECTOR". If the amp is connected properly and powered on, the LED is ON.

    If the amp is being used for normal speakers, use a pair of RCA cables and connect the left/right channels to the appropriate inputs on the amp. The switch marked "LPF" should be "OFF".

    If the amp is being used with the channels bridged for a subwoofer, use an RCA "Y" adapter and connect the single "Sub Out" preamp output from the head unit to both amp inputs. The switch marked "LPF" should be "ON" and the crossover set to about 80-100Hz.

    How to hook up a pyramid pro plus 4 channel pb-180px without using rca jacks for 6 by 9s


    The pb180 has High Input receptacles on the back end. They are marked High Input and identified as Channels 1&2 left/right, and channels 3&4 left/right. You will need to identify all speaker wires coming from your head unit ( left front +&--) , and so on. You will be sending the speaker wires from the head unit to the pb180's High Inputs. In other words, the front left speaker wires(+&-) from the head unit will go to the High Input Channels 1&2 side, left input of the pb180, and so on, so the speaker wires coming out of the head unit will need to be cut. And LABEL all sets of speaker wires before you cut them! Then on the OUTPUT end of the pb180, you will be sending the wires back to the the respective speaker wires which are going to the speakers. So it's out from head unit to pb180 and out from pb180 to speakers.
    Hopefully you have the plugs that Pyramid uses for the speaker wire inputs to the amp. If not you have to get creative, and make up terminals to fit into the input receptacles. Maybe a wire terminal from Radio shack will fit those pins..
    Also, if you go on line: Google search "Pyramid auto amps" and click on "SEARCH" (upper right hand) of their Web Page. Plug in your model number like this, pb180, and you'll be able to download the manual for this amp. The manual has a full description of the wiring options.

    Hope this was helpful and Good Luck!

    Hello herb31,

    It sounds like there is a difference in the signal levels on the inputs to the amps. You did not specify what the RCA's are connected to on the head unit side. If they are connected to a stereo pair of preamp outputs, you may be able to solve the problem by using only the channel with the higher signal and use an RCA "Y" adapter to split it to both amps. If they are connected to a dedicated subwoofer output on the head unit, make sure that the head unit is set for "subwoofer". Some less expensive head units, I know JVC in particular, has only 1 set of line outputs and requires you to go into their "PSM" (Preferred Setting Mode) to set the line output mode and if you select "subwoofer", then allows you to select the low pass frequency.

    If you are converting speaker-level outputs through a "line out converter", check both the input and output levels.

    Also, if you are splitting an output from the head unit, you still need to connect 2 RCA's to the amp inputs. The signal will be properly split if you use a 1-female to 2-male "Y" adapter. To feed the same signal to both amps, you would need 3 "Y" adapters. Feed the output signal to the female end of the first "Y", and plug the male ends into the other 2 "Y" adapters. Then, the 4 plugs you have left on the ends go into your amp inputs.

    Hope this helps.

    No stereo signal out from yamaha p 2500 s


    It's unclear what type of connectors are on the end of the cables(s) coming from your computer.

    This amp only works with mono 1/4" TRS and XLR connectors, not standard RCA connectors.

    Did you try the Right one in the Left Channel to see if the Left Channel worked?

    Refer to the following manual and read up on the connectors (page 7) and the use of the Stereo/Parallel/Bridge Switch (page 8). When it is NOT in Stereo Mode the unit only uses the Right Channel controls and input.

    http://img3.musiciansfriend.com/dbase/pdf/man/m_480824.pdf

    STEREO/PARALLEL/BRIDGE switch
    Use this switch to select the operating mode.
    • STEREO mode
    Channels A and B operate independently (as with a conventional
    stereo amplifier). The Channel A input goes to the Channel
    A output jacks, and the Channel B input goes to the
    Channel B output jacks.
    • PARALLEL mode
    The Channel A input signal is output through both the Channel
    A and Channel B output jacks. The Channel B input jacks do
    not function. Channel A and B volumes can be independently
    adjusted.
    • BRIDGE mode
    The Channel A input signal is output from the BRIDGE output
    jacks. To adjust the volume, you must use the Channel A volume
    control knob.

    Sony xplod amp xm-1652z high level input connection


    First off, if you're using RCA preamp connections from the head unit to the amp, you don't need to put anything into the high level input connector. But if your head unit doesn't have RCA preamp outputs, then connect the front left to the white (+) and white/black stripped (-) wires and the front right to the grey (+) and grey/black stripped (-) wires. There is no need to connect the rear speaker outputs of the head unit to the high level input of the amp.

    MTX 502 2 chanel amp Pre amp problem?


    Unless your amp is 1 (one) ohm stable then you may have fried it. When you attach a 2 ohm load across a bridged amp then you have effectivly placed each output channel on a 1 ohm load. Not a good thing in most cases. Try hooking up ONE speaker on one channel and one input to that one channel one at a time. Then switch the speaker/input to the other channel and see if you can get either or both channels to work independently. Needless to say you must turn the amp off before you make ANY change in the wiring.
