I have an old school kicker zr120 car sterio amp.


The first thing to try would probably be connecting the amp to power and speakers with absolutely no input.

If it still causes problems then try replacing any electrolytic capacitors in the amp (Make sure they're the same rating). Although first just look for any obvious failure, like anything that looks like it's been getting really hot.

If it still gives you problems, try testing the amplifier transistors.

I just bought a Jensen vm9215bt head unit. And I do not know how to hook up my subwoofer. I have three cables coming from my amp. I have one of them so the amp will turn on, I have that one connected. But...


Most amplifiers have a common color code to hook them up. On your head unit, there should be a blue wire. That is your amp. Turn on lead. The positive + symbol goes to your battery +. And that lead is usually red. Your negative terminal - is this symbol and the wire s usually black. That either goes to the - side of the battery or grounds to car chassis. The sound inputs to your amp. either by RCA cables or high speaker level input. That depends on your amps. set up. If you have any questions, post back and I'll try to reply by next day or two.

New in dash reciever, have sub woofers, they turn on but are not working


There are a number of issues that could be going on here. Go down this check list.

1. Check to make sure your head unit is getting power
2. Make sure the volume is up and that you do not have the unit on mute


The following list is if you have an amp (I assume you do if you have subwoofers).

1. Make sure the RCA cables are plugs to the correct outlet RCA's on the unit.
2. Make sure the RCA cables are not crimped at any point on the way back to the amplifier
3. Make sure the power and ground are good on the amplifer and that the remote turn on is functioning (this will turn the amp on).
4. Make sure the RCA cables are plugged into the right place on the amplifier.
5. Check the gain levels on your amp. This is a dial next to the RCA input. You will need a small flat head screwdriver to adjust.
6. Make sure the subs are wired correctly. If they are wired to the wrong ohms load they may cause the amp to go into protection.


If this doesn't help, you may need to get more specific in your next post.

A Clarion DB365USB: I want to connect the input of the amp for a sub woofer to the clarion. There are 3 pairs of RCA jacks on the back of the clarion. Top pair are input, the second and third i think...


There should not be a constant voltage present on the output RCA's. They will only put out voltage when there is something playing and it will be a very small and constantly varying amount. If you plug it in and it is still not working you may need to adjust the menu settings on the head unit or the input sensitivity of the amplifier. For example if you plug the RCA's into the Rear outputs of the head unit and the Fader setting is all the way forward, you will not get any sound. Same goes for the amp settings, if you turn it on and the input sensitivity is set way down then you won't get any sound then either. Cheers, Dan

Hi ive got like music playing through my 12 inch sub aswell as bass im pretty sure subs are just their for bass. ive changed RCA cables i dont know how many times new amp sub head unit and power n ground...


Hello..... I can help you with this problem. You need a crossover to remove all of the high and mid frequencies from the subwoofer. If you run the sub at "full range" (all frequencies), you will destroy the voice coil. If your amplifier has a crossover on it, put it in the "low pass" or "LP" setting. If your amplifier does not have a built in crossover, you will need to add one. A crossover can cost as little as $29 for an electronic one. This will fix your problem. If you have any other questions, just comment back and I will be glad to help you!

Wiring diagram for a pioneer deh-p6500 sterio There r red and white rca plugs in the back of it but i don't know what they r for.


Hi, the RCA jacks can be used either for an amplifier input or sub. Unless you have these accessories, you do not need to plug anything in there. Does this answer your questions? If not, please explain what you are trying to do and i will do my best to help.

I have a 700 watt 2 channel amp (pioneer) that stops the whole sterio when the right and left sides are bolth hooked up at the same time. what is wrong? i thought the hookup was pretty much idiot proof. is...


One possible scenerio is one of your RCA's is pinched real bad. I mean you drilled a screw thru the RCA and its grounding out and shorting out.

2nd possible Scenerio is you connected on the back of the radio the rca to the input instead of the output. You have to hook up OUTPUT OF THE RADIO TO THE INPUT OF THE AMP. Any other way its wrong.

check your rca cables, amplifier grounding. might be loose.. else try to re orient the wires so that the power wires aren't close to the input and speaker output wires.

If your amplifier has what they call High level inputs (basically inputs on the amp that you run the speaker wires from your radio into), you can splice wires from where the connectors are on your rear speaker(s), still leaving the speaker hooked up, and use those as an input into the amp. If your amplifier does not have high level inputs, a convertor is available to turn an audio signal from your radio output speaker wires ( spliced in just as above, leaving the speaker hooked up), into an rca output jack. Or the best thing to do would be to buy another say 2-4 channel amp w/high level inputs and rca inputs and outputs, and run your rear speaker wires into the amp. Then you'll be able to run the rca cables out of that amp and into the sub amp, and you'll have the new amp to power your rear speakers or rears and fronts. That would be ideal. But, A convertor is your best bet. Got em at best buy, circuit city, etc. Hope this was helpful.
