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.

There are a number of amplifiers in the TA series, but the connections are basically the same.
In your system, the amplifier serves as master control. How do you know? Look for the component that offers input selection -tuner, cassette, CD, video, phono and probably auxiliary. Every other component plugs into and is controlled by the integrated amplifier. For example, plug the tuner wires from the tuner output to the amplifier input marked "Tuner." To use the tuner, just select that input from the front panel. Same with all the other components.

On the back of that unit will a bunch of RCA jacks for left and right channels. Take the hook-up wires, usually RCA cables with colored plugs on each end, and connect the OUTPUT jacks on each separate component to the INPUT jacks on the amp. Power may also be controlled from the amp. On audio plugs, red is right and white is left. Keep the polarity constant as you connect each component. Connect the speaker wires to the speaker outputs, usually spring clips or screw terminals on the amplifier end and the same on each speaker. The DVD video cable will have three wires: Yellow, red and white. Yellow is always video. It may also have a little round video connector for S-VHS which provides a much better picture when using DVD.

I am hooking up a pioneer super tuner d. It has an illusion wire and a positive dimmer wire. What are these wires for?

You need a hot wire red and a ignition wire yellow and ground for power. Hope this helps plus the speaker wires. Hooked up. If using a amp then you would use the blue wire for a remote wire to amp.

I have a Sony Amplifier [model TA-AX380] and other components of CD player [model DCP-C40], AM/FM Tuner [model ST-JX380], FM Stereo/FM-AM Receiver [model STR-AV570X], and Stereo Cassette Deck [model...
Hi above are links for manuals, these may help..
When one wires up anything it is all usually color to color output to input... usually RED & WHITE stereo audio.
Now we would start with our Tuner this the CD player, & Cassette deck, will wire into the Amp's INPUTs , red - red & white - white, these go into the Stereo INPUTs on the AMP... 1, 2 & 3 and be selected via the input selector on the AMP.
Now after all these in's and out's are wired we need to wire our speakers, this too is simple, locate the outputs on the Amp, and wire accordingly, Plus to Plus and Negative to Negative... each speaker has two wires a Plus, + & a Negative -
All will/should be clearly marked and it will be easy to do. You will need patch leads, one set each for each unit, these will be a pair of cables, usually Red & White with RCA jacks on each end, as related these go color to color from the RCA OUTPUTs Sockets, of the signal suppliers, ie: Tuner, FM stereo & Cassette deck... these ALL will wire into the Main Amplifiers INPUTS, usually at rear of unit, and clearly marked, after this is all done, then as related again now connect the Speakers, again the OUTPUT on the Amp will be clearly marked, as output and + & -, + & - (two sets), one for each channel.
Now each INPUT is selected ON the AMP, and it's output will then be directed to the speakers attached to the Amp..... Just wire and test one at a time, and i am sure you will prevail.
Hope this helps.

How to wire the tuner and amp what wires do i need to get it to work

In most cases, you need a pair of Red/White RCA cables. Connect one set of ends (1 red + 1 white) to the external tuner's output and the other (white + red) to the input on the Amp.

Then you need double stranded wire to connect the speakers to the amp. one x double stranded wire for each speaker. You can use electrical cord from the hardware store (e.g. 18 gauge wire) or you can buy some speaker wire (16 to 20 gauge - use lower number wire (thicker) for higher power amp). 16 to 18 gauge wire for a 100 watt per channel amp if your speakers are less than 15 feet from the amp (wires are less than 15 feet long). If longer than 15 feet, use the 16 gauge wire. You can use 18 gauge for most anything else.

No Sound

most ram trucks came with a infinity system. the amps are in the front doors, mounted to the 6x9 speakers. and they power the tweeters in the columms, and also rear speakers if you have them. I had to replace the entire system.
