Re: plugging it up

Dam Jaggy87, I think I would let them hold the amp and go somehere else. I would not want someone who doesnt understand putting anything in my car.


The Plugs may be Speaker level and Line level input.

I plug in rockwood detanator VII and it goes to protections mode

Generally if an amp goes straight into protection, the amp is not grounded well enough. Either you should find a new location to ground the amp to or unhook the power wire from the battery, remove the ground wire from the chassis of your vehicle. Strip the paint from the chassis, since it doesn't conduct electricity, and remove any corrosion or copper shielding from the ground connector. reground to a solid metal location Can be grounded to the brace behind the back seat or to the seat belt bolt for best results.
An amp draws a lot of power, there it needs to be grounded well.
Hook back up your power wire to the battery and see if your issue is resolved.

The Pioneer GM-5100T wiring help?!!

i just sent you the manual for your am everything you need to know is in there. i also have tht plug if you need it. but will only be used for high level inputs for factory radio's if you have a after market radio use your rca jacks. or if you want you could use a converter if you have a factory radio that makes speakers outputs from the radiointo rca jack that will go into the amp. the rca'sare the best way it will sound much cleaner. good luck

I just dont know how to plug everything with it...Power button comes on if you move the amp...sparks if touches with a a screw....dont know which connections to put where

Black is ground(hook to a bolt going into metal on vehicle). Red is switched power(only on with ignition on). Yellow is power(power even if ignition is off). Blue is amp turn-on(located at radio and sends signal for amp to turn on). It is sparking because you do not have it grounded properly. You can damage your amp and or you car's electrical careful. Always pull a main fuse or disconnect the battery when wiring a car audio system.

Amp keeps shutting off

you dont have it bridged right your dropping your ohms down way to low.. when you go to bridge your amp you have a negative and a positive on your amp thats it i have an alpine v-power mrp-m350 i think there identical should be but anyways you have to buy a Y splitter there RCA JACKS its has the 2 ends that plug into your amp than ties into a single one its a male or female adapter the place were your gonna get it w know the trick of these amps when bridging is only keep your left channel cable plugged in to your cd player i think its white colored dont plug the other one in rap tape around it or get a rubber cap and put over it.. run your RCA cables to your location of amp location and do the same just tie that into your left channel and tape or get a rubber cap to put over the other one i wish i could draw you a diagram of it hard to explain when typing it if you have a cell phone or house phone i would prefer you calling me from a cell so i dont get charged a fortune my cell number is 1814-594-2667 call me i will get it working for yeah hope to hear from you soon my name is Brad

Will not power

Yeah my guess without seeing it is that you did fry your amp. You really need to hook up two fuses inline on your power feed; one no farther than 18" from you battery and one inline at you amp.

Protection Light Is Coming On

You say the protection mode only occurs when you plug the RCA's in. Does it have to be both RCAs or just one?

The other end of the RCA cable is plugged into the HU?

It possible the RCAs have too much DC voltage on them, causing the amp to go into protection.

Is there a short in the RCA cable?

I would definitely check out the RCA connection at the back of the HU, as it sounds like there could be other issues there. Make sure the RCA connectors aren't touching any other metal (especially +12V).
