    Hi Sorry was just signing up.......incorrect the YELLOW is a direct connection to 12V + normally straight to battery, the BLUE is signal received by your stereo to actually turn your amp one RED is a 12v + Out when amp is on to power another 12V device only when amp is on via BLUE Signal Cable....Thanks

RED is for 12v POS, BLK is for GROUND, BLU is for REMOTE ON. Not sure about the yellow, probably an AUX ON/OFF.

I need to wire my sony cd player into my fiat cinquencento but I have no idea how to wire it in I just spent 23 on a wire for the stereo an it only cost me a tenner for the actual stereo I dont want to...


most car stereos are simple to wire, especially sony!

Main power cable colours are:..
RED = LIVE (+)
BLACK = NEGATIVE (-)
YELLOW = MEMORY/SWITCH LIVE it will be next to the red and black cables
ORANGE AND WHITE = ELECTRIC ARIAL (IF FITTED)
BLUE = REMOTE WIRE (FOR AMP CONTROL IF USING)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You should now be left with a couple of audio out jacks and speaker cables,

the speaker cables are straightforward, most have a twin, ...E.G if you have a grey wire, this should be next to a grey and white (or grey and black, depends on model) wich is classed as its PAIR/TWIN.............

an so forth,...green, purple, white, brown.....ect ect

each colour havin a twin as stated ealier!! (they are twinned, as the solid colour is usually the negative speaker, and the solid colour with a stripe through it is usually the posative speaker connection (eg..single solid colour is (-)...and...solid colour with stripe is posetive (+)...)

I'm planning on installing a system in my pick-up and I was hoping I could get a little assistance. I was planning on using a pair of 5'' McIntosh ms486 coaxial speakers (120w max 4 ohm)in the front doors...


First of all use the larger output amp to power the sub. You can tell if its free-to-air if in the middle of the magnet there is a hole for "air" to flow freely. The advantage of free to air is they dont require much of an enclosure or next to none so you can mount it on a single piece of mdf wood and use the cab in the truck as an enclouse itself. I would bridge the amp for the sub to mono but be careful to tune so you dont "distort". Secondly the amp for the mid's shouldn't be bridged any maybe you could run the front and rear speakers off the same amp.. I would get an amp for rear and front speakers each and one for the sub. Your ouput rca's should goto the cross-over first then to the amp (sub) - then wired to your sub (mono) which is bridged. Ensure to tune your cross-over to lowest frequency for sub. Its easy to bridge an amp if its 4 channel.. looking at the speaker terminals it will look like ( + - + -) use the two outer most terminals to bridge to mono.

20-Volt DC Power Supply instead of 12-Volt amp


Here's a few things that come to mind. An auto charging system will operate normally from about 11 Volts to about 14.5 Volts, depending on what is operating (lights, blower,etc), and whether the vehicle is at idle or not. Most car amps will operate from about 10.5 to 16.5 Volts, and outside that range, they will probably shut down.
Another consideration is your 20 volt power supply. You didn't mention if it is a DC power supply, but it needs to be. The other factor is its output, meaning its amperage rating. I'm figuring it will need to put about 5 amps, at the least, for the Sony to put out some watts. I think the line fuses of the Sony are rated @ 25 amps each.
I don't like this type of situation, because I want to say 'try it and see what happens" and I want to say 'don't do it, something may blow".
If you decide to try the 20Volt power supply, maybe if you put smaller rated fuses (say 10 amp) in the Sony amp, they will act as a fail safe. Good luck!

Need wiring diagram for Sony XM-E70 Equalizer/Amp


You need 1 thick ground cable ( usually brown)
you need 1 thick power cable ( same thickness and wire as ground usually red )
you should have 1 rem wire ( thin blue )
RCAs, 2 for sub, extra 2 for 2 speakers.
The rest I have no idea what they are.

You need speaker cables to sub or amp.

Some products use different colouring. Maybe the 9 pin connector is for head deck to speakers.

Problems with my sony xm-2100 gtx amp


check your wires and your ground wire it might be touching something causing it to spark and your amp to go on protect mode also check your fuses..also sometimes this works put your db and all your settings on your amp low as it can go sometimes its just to much power n hits like an impact.
