Re: Input/output cables

Still a little fuzzy're not trying to run the amp off of the power from the radio are you? If you are it will not work. The cables on the radio (pos/neg) are usually like 16gauge...your amp will require a much larger gauge wire. In fact...if the cable is too small the amp will turn on for a sec (maybe even just light the light) then go dead.

Re: Input/output cables

Holy confusing....might want to restate that question...ther is no power per se on the output/input....I suppose signal is DC voltage but I don't think thats what you meant. Remote wire has minimal power it is designed to turn the amp on and off with the ignition...check the main power cables red and black usually. Be can scare ya Good luck...

Stereo remote wire won't power on amp sony mex

The easiest check is unhook the remote turn on wire from the amp and use a small jump wire to bridge the 12dvc input of the amp and the remote turn on connector of the amp. If the amp powers on there is an issue with the remote turn on connection either a bad wire or bad output. If the amp doesn't turn on there is an issue in the amp wiring or the amp itself.

Where are the amps and how do i by pass them for the stereo

The amps are located inside the radio. Most in-dash receivers that provide for "pre-amp outputs" also called "low level outputs" do so by providing female RCA type jacks. These are often found at the end of a short (4 - 6 inch) cable and are usually color coded red & white or red & black (some receivers provide a yellow RCA jack for video in / out, too). To use these RCA audio jacks, you need to realize that one jack is for the left channel source and the other is for the right channel source for a stereo signal. You will have to connect a compatible plug and cable of enough length to extend to a remote amplifier's RCA input jacks. The vehicle's speakers would also need to be connected directly to the same amplifier's output terminals. Using the two audio (left and right) RCA jacks will only allow the radio to control balance of the left and right audio, no fader (front and rear) control is possible. To get fader control, you'd have to either have a radio with four RCA low level output jacks (front L & R *and* rear L & R), or use the radio's speaker (or high level output) wires and connect them to the amplifier's speaker (or high level) input terminals.

All unused receiver wires should be terminated in a wirenut or securely wrapped in electrical tape to prevent accidental contact with grounded metal or other wires behind the dash.

I hope this helps!

No sound from cd or aux on CDX-GT32W

Just connect together the solid blue wire on the main harness to the radio with the blue/striped wire. The blue wire is for the power antenna and the blue striped is for the remote amp. but if not connected together only the fm/am has outputs to the line output RCA jacks. I learned this through Sony's tech line and it works perfectly now.

Alpine CDA-7873 (Same as CDA-7876 basically)

the blue line from the radio harness does not have power when the cd or aux are being used and the amp is not turning on-wire the remote line from the amp to the red line and your amp will stay on and you will get sound

Wiring my tuner-DEH-1800 to Amp GM-5300-T into my 4 speaker system.


In most head units as in your case the Pioneer DEH-1800, there would be 2 RCA female jacks at the rear of the unit. These are your OUTPUTs.

While in most amps including your GM-5300-T, there would similar RCA jacks which would be your INPUTs.

You need to connect the output to the input using an audio cable terminated at both ends with RCA plugs. Further you need to connect the remote trigger on from the head unit to the remote/external amp to switch it on.

A more comprehensive connection diagram is available at page 6 of the GM-5300T Manual which may be downloaded from here.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Ipod Connection through RCA Cable

Actually, what I think gbaity is doing is utilizing his IP(Interactive Pioneer)-Bus port in the back of the DEH-P3000, which is an input port designed to allow the deck to use an external multi-disk CD changer. All you need is the CD changer, then change the input source from your deck to "M-CD". There are folks on eBay and other places that sell a cable that pluggs into that very same port. They are designed to allow the unit to accept input through the IP-Bus from an ipod or just about any low-level input that you can pass through the RCA jacks. I have the same deck, and also just purchased an ipod cable for the IP-Bus, and it also does not work. I have been told that I need to switch the "M-CD" input source to "AUX" as the input, but I do not know how to do that. pressing the input source button only displays "CD", "M-CD", and "FM/AM". Does anyone know how to add "AUX" to the choices or otherwise show us how to make these cables work? Thanks - TomR

Auxilary RCA inputs have no volume control

Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier. If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).

How to instal my deck to a amp and sub

you would need rca cables, power wire, ground wire, and remote wire. it is easiest to just go to your local best buy or circuit city stores and buy the whole set in one package. rca's lead from your decks rca output jacks to your amp, remote wire leads from your decks wiring (blue remote wire that leads to your deck itself to give it remote) or any 12 volt source like where your fuses are located and it runs to the amp also, your power wire will lead from your battery to your amp, and your ground will need a good place somewhere in your car and be bolted or screwed to the frame of your car. this is how to intall your deck to your amp. i assume that you already know that wires will have to be under your carpet or kickboards and such however you run them. i think this covers the basics and i hope i have answered your question right, good luck
