DXZ545MP rcas to sub amp

Im trying to install my DXZ545MP clarion stereo to my amp. When I first had the radio installed I asked for two rca outputs so i could hook up my ipod. Now im installing the radio in my 96 accord ex and there are four RCA females. I am wondering which do i hook up from the amp to the back of the headunit.  Each rca wires have different colors green grey red and black.  I belive the hookup is green for the amp but im not sure.  and I don't know also where to connect the remote wire. The radio works fine without an amp and subs and I have a blue/white wire that is not being used wondering if that is where to hook it up. Thanks.

Subwoofer wont play


For a sub to play it needs wiring from sub to amp and the amp needs power from battery and amp needs signal from radio and amp needs to be grounded oh and it needs a remote signal from the radio as well and if your radio is stock and has no RCA outputs you need a LOC which will connect to you speakers with wire and to your amp with RCAs

Subwoofer istalation into a clarion DXZ375MP stereo


The DXZ375 has two sets of RCA outputs (1 red plug, 1 white plug) located on the back of the unit. The set with the white main wire is for a front amplifier, and the one with the black main wire is the rear. You want the black one.

I'm assuming you also have an amplifier for your subs and the necessary wiring. You will need to run a 12v+ from the battery to the amplifier, splice a power-on signal wire from the ACC Power wire on the stereo's wiring harness (red wire) as well as connect the amp to the stereo via the RCA outputs.

Sub woofer volume adjustment


The gain dial is not a volume control. The gain dial is used to compensate the output level of your car radio head unit. all car stereo units output are not alike. If you set this gain level too high, it will cause major distortion (clipping) to the audio output of you speakers when cranked up. This excessive distortion WILL eventually, or even quickly damage or blow your speakers.

I personally blown speakers this way no not properly setting this. (lesson learned, I guess :| )

Clarion dxz545mp amp guard issues


, the message you are getting is "amp guard". This is the mesage it will display when a short in a speaker wire or speaker with low impedence is hooked to the internal amp and sends it into protect mode, shutting down the amplifier section while the rest of the unit continues to work.

check all of your speakers

No, the RCA plugs are used for connecting to an amplifier only, they are not powerful enough to drive speakers directly.

Clarion dxz545mp doesn't power, does not work.


Check the fuses in the fuse block under the hood. Your clock fuse and radio constant power fuse are combined in this vehicle.
