remote-on lead from a 12V power source that turns on and off with the ignition if the head unit does not supply a wire. (switch)
RCA connection from head unit to the amp. (sound in)
Speaker wire connection from amp to speakers. (sound out)
It is easiest to start with deciding on the amp mounting location, and then running all the wires. Add an extra foot or so to each wire. You may discover in the process that you have to move things around due to unforeseen obstacles. This extra foot will help in that case. Always attach the ground wire to the chassis first and then to the amp first. Once you have the fused power wire from the battery installed; remove the fuse before trying to attach it to the amp. ONLY re-install the fuse once all connections to the amp are made, secure, have been checked twice and you're ready to test it.. This includes speakers. DO NOT for ANY reason have the amp powered up before attaching ALL speaker connections.
Elaborate a bit on what you're trying to do if this doesn't work for you.
This unit has Pre Outs near the center of the rear panel for all audio channels which will allow you to use external amplification for any speakers you wish to use and the receiver will still control the volume.
See #12 on page 10 of the manual. Try retrevo.com
Just run RCA cable(s) from the desired Pre-Out jack to the input(s) on the external amp with its speaker(s) attached. Set the external amp's volume (if it has one) to very high, then leave it alone. Run through the Yamaha's speaker location and volume settings to level-match the external speakers to the rest.
If you want to simultaneously use the Yamaha-attached speakers for the same channels as the external amp you'll have to match the like channel volumes to each other using a volume control on your external amp, then level-match them as a unit to the other channels.
Here's how it goes:
grey=right front pos.
grey/black=right front neg.
white=left front pos.
white/black=left front neg.
violet=right rear pos.
violet/black=right rear neg.
green=left rear pos.
green/black=left rear neg.
red=12 volt switched power source
yellow=12 volt constant power source (direct to battery)
orange/white=illumination (switched source,not to head light switch)
blue/white=amp turn on lead (to remote turn on lead of amp)
blue=auto antenna (switched power source)
brown=phone mute lead (to cell phone mute lead)
RCA connector leads:
red=right rear/right rear subwoofer
white=left rear/left rear subwoofer
(connect to external amp)
red=right aux input
white=left aux input
(connect to external unit)
red=right dual zone output
white=left dual zone output
(connect to wireless head phones)
That should be all there is. on the yellow that goes direct to the battery you need to use an inline fuse holder with 30 amp fuse.
First thing is to understand you will most likely have to run all new speaker wire as the head unit in your car has everything external to the head unit (power amplifier, fader). The plastic around shifter pulls up off, then remove wood surround. Remove ashtray, pull face off head unit usually by sticking fingers in cassette area and pull. There will be plastic tabs on the bottom of unit push in and pull out on head unit, pull slowly so you can inspect wires for placement. Again rerunning speaker wire should be done to preclude external amps and fader switch and power antenna if yours still works.
Does the stereo have a switch in the back that switches between Amp and Pre-Amp ? Some units mute the high level speaker output if it's switched to pre-amp mode in the case where you would use the RCA jacks to route the low level audio to external amplifiers. I can you further if you give me the make and model. Also, good info could be found on details of your unit at www.crutchfield.com.
Yes, depending on how many speaker you intend to run will determine the type of amp you will need. Set the output on the source unit to optical out. Connect the optical cable to the amp. Connect the speakers to amp. turn them all on and select the iput of the source unit on the amp and enjoy. good luck chachig
This may help. Alpine typically controls their internal amps one of two ways: 1) menu setting for external amp or defeat internal amp or 2) top of the unit (with it removed) there maybe a series of switches by channel (front, back and sub) on the unit. My current alpine has the switches on top.
Other than the +12V, the ground (-) and the 2 RCA inputs, normally external amps have also a remote trigger which switches it to active on. The remote trigger is activated by a wire from the head unit. Colors would either be yellow or blue but depends on manufacturer of head unit. Alternately, you can connect a simple toggle on/off switch to activate the external amp.
Additionally, pls verify that the 2 RCAs from your head unit are audio out and not audio in for aux source.
