    the wire that is inbetween the RCAs is probably just a remote wire. do u have everything else connected properly? are any wires crossed or touching? have u checked the fuses? has the amp ever worked properly

What do you mean the RCA cables are'nt grounded? All RCA cable have a ground. What kind are you using? The round metal at the end of the RCA cable is the ground. The silver or outside of the line input on the amp is the ground for the RCA cables. Anyway, that would'nt stop your amp from coming on. I suggest you take a piece of wire and ground it to the amp and touch the metal piece on the RCA cable and see if you get sound. Even if the RCA cable is'nt grounded you would get some type of sound coming out of the amp maybe. If you do it will sound like it's cominf thru a long tunnel, like a reverb effect. I have never heard of an RCA cable not having a ground. ARE you sure you have RCA cables? Let me know and send me a pic if you can of the input of the amp so I can see how you have it hooked up.

Ouku single din no sound from rca cables


Sorry I did not use the video out RCA cables. My audio RCA cables worked fine... I ran them to my JBL amplifier through a conversion adapter. I did not run it direct to the amp.. I used Metra TYTO-01 03-08 Toyota Vehicles Harness for JBL SYS (Ebay item 160560648718) and it worked great.

Here is the wiring color coding that I found online:

Where can I buy a RCA Cable and/or adapter for my Dual XD6210 so that I may have it installed in a 2001 Hyundai Elantra?


RCA cables like these can be brought from any electronic shop, no special rca cables are required ..

you do mean RCA right ?? this is what is looks like (below),, and can be brought from any electronic shop.its the same kind used to connect your dvd player to your tv. BTW these cables are only necessary when connection to an amplifier. other than that,, you have all ther wires you need on the unit, 2 power and 8 speaker wires. yellow is connected to the battery, red to the battery or ignition, black is the ground, and the pair colored wires are connected to the speakers. The unit ships with these wires so there is no need to buy them seperately. If you seek an adapter to convert the units electrical to your vehicles electrical you will not find it, It has to be connected via the wires. Simply clip the wires out of the old units adapter.

Walter and Barbara Bradford calling back with additional info. The cable box is explorer 4250HDC.It is hooked to the TV with 5 cable hookup.Also there is the power wire and the cable that goes to the box...


what are you trying to do? to hook up the tv you can use the cable output from the charter box into cable input into the tv (meaning cable as in coax cable) otherwise you can use the colored ones. red white an yellow are rca jacks but the 5 wire you talking about are prob compondent cables which are red green and blue. connect those to the tv and the other red and white ones are for audio to the tv you may have to set the charter box to select which output you are using and the tv to the right input for the rca it will prob be input 1 for the component it will be component 1
let me know if thats what you needed

The saftey red light keeps coming on


It means that the subwoofer is blown. The red light is called the Protect light. Disconnect the speaker wire from the amp and then turn the amp on and see if the red light goes away. But if as soon as you hook the speaker wires back to the amp and the red light turns on that DEFINATELY means the sub is blown.

Havin problem with a1200 class a/b amp it ligts green and red at same time after hooking in remote how doi fixdo i need diagram to fix


Make sure you don't have any shorts on your speaker wires or rca cables. Unplug one at a time, the turn on power until it stays green with no protect light, then you know what input is causing the short. If you remove all speaker wires and rca wires and all you have connected is the ground, power(12volts) and remote and it still lights up red/green(in protect mode) then your problem is the amp.

There are a couple of different ways you can do this but this is the easiest.

Items needed - One set of RCA audio cables (Red/White)

1) On the back of your TV there should be RCA plugs marked as "Audio Out". Connect the RCA cable to these connections Red cable to Red connector and White cable to White connector.

2) Locate on the back of the surround sound system the connections marked "Audio in (VCR)". Connect the other end of the RCA cable to this connection Red cable to Red Connector and White cable to White connector.

Now to get the sound to play press the "VCR" button on the surround remote and you should get the cable box sound on the surround system.

Good Luck.....

Wiring Bathroom light/vent/heater switch with 3 separate controls


Wiring a bathroom combination vent, heater, light 3 way switch means more wires. In brief, you need to run two cables - one a two wire and one a three wire from the switch to the fan.

Incoming power will have white black and ground.

The two wire cable for the switch to the fan will have wht, blk, and ground.

The three wire will have red, blk, wht, and grnd.

The switch will likely have 2 blacks and a red coming from it, with two blacks and a red on one side, and a single black on the other.

The fan should have a red, blue, green, black, and white.

On the fan end: Group all green/copper grounds together and use a wire nut to fasten them together. Tape the nut to the wires.
There will be five white wires coming through. For ease of handling, using wire nuts, connect two on one nut and three on the other.
connect the blue to a blck. Connect one red to one black, and the other red to the other black.

The switch will have one red going into the 3 wire cable, a black going to the 3 wire cable, and a black form incoming power to the side opposite the 3 wires, and a blck going to the two wire cable.

There. Confused?

Getting clear audio to televisions from a soundboard


I think you should buy a video sender. It will take audio from your audio console and send wireless to a free channel to any free TV channel. No cables!

Here's one on ebay:

Protection light turn on with sound


It's likely that the amp is defective but you should check the shield ground of the RCA signal cables before sending the amp off for repair.

 

Disconnect the RCA cables from the amp.

 

With your multimeter set to ohms, measure the resistance from the outer shield of the RCA cable to chassis ground. If it's more than a few ohms, that could be causing your problem.

 

If this is higher than a few ohms, short the meter's leads together to make sure the meter will go down to 0 ohms.

 

To check the shield ground of the head unit (assuming that the head unit is driving the amp directly), disconnect the RCA cables from the head unit and measure the resistance from the RCA output shield to the case of the head unit. It should essentially read 0 ohms.
