Question about Car Audio & Video
You didn't indicate what car your radio is in, whether the car has factory amps that the pioneer is integrated into or bypassing, or if you're using the radio's factory amps to power the speakers, or if you have external aftermarket amps fed from the radio's preamp outputs. So with the lack of information, it's hard to say for sure what's going on, but I would suspect either you have a radio whose internal amplifier is dying, or your car has an internal amp that's being overdriven because your pioneer's internal amp is providing a powered signal to your car's factory amp which should never be done. There's too many directions in which to go to troubleshoot this issue because you haven't said anything about the make and model of your car or it's current sound system, so I hope I've given you enough of a foundation to point you in the right direction.

if your radio is puiing more power your ground might not be good enough, use the same spot but remove the ground and rough it up a little on the base with some sand paper or add a metal o ring to get a better ground.

SOURCE: i have a pioneer DEH-P3000
Hi nhmteam. I have the solution for you: 1. With your DEH-P3000 turned off, press your FUNCtion button. It's a tiny button towards the upper right of the faceplate. Hold it down until you "ALARM OFF" or "ALARM ON" on the display. Release the button. 2. Press the FUNCtion button again and you should see another feature. I don't remember how many features you need to cycle through, but keep releasing and pressing the FUNCtion button until you see "M-CD ON" on the display. If you miss it just keep going and eventually it will come back. 3. On the right side of your faceplate there is a button with 4 arrows. You will need to push the up or down arrow until the display reads "M-CD OFF". If your display already reads "M-CD OFF", kip to the next step. 4. Press and release the FUNCtion button again and you should see "AUX OFF" on the display. Again press the up or down arrow until the display reads "AUX ON". 5. Now, turn on your unit, then press the INPUT button until the display reads "AUX". You are now ready to use your iPod in the way you always did. Keep these instructions for the future since I believe every time you disconnect the unit from the battery the unit will reset itself and disable your iPod cord. Best regards - TomR

According to the manual, you need to "enable" the AUX 1 or 2 thru the initial settings menu.
Press and hold the SRC until the unit turns off. Then press and hold the MULTI CONTROL (knob) until the Language appears. Turn the knob to cycle thru the options, select AUX 1 or 2 and press the knob again to select ON.
After selecting them to on, power the unit on and press the SRC to cycle thru the sources to find AUX 1 or 2.
The owners manual is here if you need it;
Best of Luck.

SOURCE: no sound out of subs
Check the ohm of your soeakers again. If it doesn't say 2 ohm thats the prob. Keep in mind that 2 ohm can be any where from 1.7 too 2.3 but any reading on you DVOM that gives you two decimal places is also wrong. i.e. 2.17. This would mean that you have a woofer shorted.
If thats not it and you have already fixd a ground then use your meter to check the ground; to do this set the DVOM to ohms and touch one lead to a true gound, by that I mean scratch the paint and primer off of a spot you can hide untill you see bright mirror like metal. Then disconnect the ground wire from the amp and touch the other lead to it. You should read anything from 0.3 to 0.1 any higher and your ground isn't that great.
If thats not it, The only thing left is to hook the amp up out side of the vehicle away and not connected to ANYTHING that has to do with the car. Get a battery and a diskman or a playstation, anything that can pass sound out of RCA's (Maybe even a diff radio if poss). Hook it up. If it works its in the car and let me know. I'll tell you some more to check, If not its the amp. Good Luck
