I have 4 wires, red (power(, black (ground), green (speaker), gray speaker...the stereo has these same color wires...so I connect the corresponding color. The boat has NO yellow battery wire that is on the...


(http://inform3.kenwoodusa.com/manuals%5CKTSMP400MR.pdf )
Here's a link to manual and wiring on page 30 on the PDF file.
Yellow is constant power from battery, for memory etc. Red should be to switched source.If need be, you can connect both to battery, but remember, you'll have constant power draw on battery when stereo left on but switch turned off, and will draw battery down, if you forget to shut it off, and leave the boat. Speaker negatives to black should work but I would advise hooking my 2 right and 2 left + speaker wires from stereo together, then to one of the speaker positives,right or left for better sound. Fronts will usually supply higher ( high and mid range), and rears will supply lower sounds (woofer) Joining them together will give better sound usually, when only using 2 speakers, on a 4 speaker stereo. You may want to test with them joined and not, to see what sound you like better.

Pioneer Kp-500 wiring red black gray green Red hot black common for speakers green 1 channel gray 2 channel Will play using radio chasis grounded should the black be grounded to the vehicle?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

My compliments on the KP-500.

The black wire serves as common/return for the green/gray speaker wires. Yes, the black wire should also be grounded to the vehicle as it is the power ground and is tied to the chassis/body of the stereo.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Having trouble hooking up the pioneer deh1700. the colors dont match with the vehicle its a 92 chevy lumina


" I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL NOR AM I ACTING SUCH, I am only stating what I have done to solve "this" kind of problem.

First look on the original stereo from the Lumina and look for a wire digram to see the color coded wires. If you see this match with the list below, if you do not see this... after removing the stereo, With a test light or multi-metor look for a good ground to place the - clip or - probe. then look for a red wire. place the + end or the test light into the plug. if it light up that is the constant + [hot] wire. then with the ignition ON, place the light probe in to the next socket till you find another hot wire. turn the key OFF and see if the light shuts off. when you find this wire it is your ACC. the power antenna on my Honda is yellow/white I do not know the factory color for yours maybe blue, i don't know. to locate your speaker wires...... generally same colors [ brown, brown/black yellow, yellow/red and such]. you can take the batt pack out of your cordless drill and "TAP" the wires to the + and - of the batt pack. {hold the white to the + side and tap the white with black stripe to the - side...the speaker will make a popping sound. log all the colors with the location. You should have this....2 speakers should have 4 wires, 4 speakers - 8 wires If you do not have the amount stated then you have a common ground system and your - is grounded to the chasis [body/frame] and you will have one + wire for each speaker.
" just in case " the wire diagram for the Pioneer DEH 1700 is as fallows...
Black -- GROUND [-]
Yellow -- 12V constant [+]
Red -- 12V ACC [key on + only]
Blue -- Power Antenna

White -- left front +
White/black -- left front -
Grey -- Right front +
Grey/black -- Right front -

Green -- Left rear +
Green/black -- Left rear -
Violet [purple] -- Right rear +
Violet -- Right rear -

Re sent wire diagram gat all messed up


Hi
have we spoke before in previous post?
the red can go to any 12v live peramanent such as wire to clock or other item that has power with ignition off and the same with the yellow if your putting these to the same permanent live say from clock you can join these to together red/yellow to red on clock
the black can go to any metal or neg wire.
This should then have your device working the only problem im looking at for you now is the pink wire as this stops you using the device whilst driving as it goes to handbrake but i need to find out if its live or negative.
You could just wire the red/yellow to live and black to earth then see if it switches on and works if not then let me know and ill see about the pink wire ok
Makes sure you use inline fuses on the live wires so as not to short the device out.
Make sure you know what is permanent live to put the yellow/red wire to.
It doesnt need to be ignition it only says this so you cant use it with ignition off but you can wire it into any live feed from clock or switches so its up to you what to wire it to its just the pink wire im concerned about.

PINK: does it tell you to put it to live or earth on handbrake switch?

let me know ok
