Re: wiring my tuner-DEH-1800 to Amp GM-5300-T into my 4...


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.

Need to know if a looped ground would make it where the tuner on my car stereo works fine but the cd player only uses the subs and no other speakers work ? On a 1995 BMW 325i

It sounds to me like you are using more than one amplifier and are using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) to turn the amp for the rest of your speakers. The blue wire turns off when leaving tuner mode, thus turning off the amp(s).

I have a Pioneer DEH-P4900IB and I need to know what the remote turn on wire color is thanks or can you give me the complete wire chart thanks

remote turn on for amplifier should be blue/white. remote turn on for a power antenna will be blue. using the blue wire to turn an amp on will shut it off when leaving tuner mode.

Does your car have a Factory amp if so u need to find the blue wire ( on most cars) and either ground it out or and power to it, it should turn the speakers on for you to play

I wont the speakers hooked to the cd player no the amp

check were the speakers are installed for pre existing wiring they probly left it there.. if not then you will have to run speaker wire from your stereo wiring harness to your speakers. if the speakers were hooked up to the amp then the wire in the harness should be vacant and you can use it if all the wires are connected then that means that you just have to find were that wire leads and hook your speakers up to it.

How many rca jacks does it have can u hook to amps up to it

it has 1 audio output. (2 rca's one for left and one for right.)

Depending on how you plan to set up your system, you can pretty much hook up as many amps as you want.

If you are planning to run an amp to your speakers, you can wire it right into the wiring harness. If you are planning to run more then one amp, strapped or bridged etc, you just use a splitter or the pass through if the amp has it.

you only need one set of RCA's to hook up sub amps. however if you are amping the speakers for front and rear, then you wire it right into the harness if the head unit doesn't have separate rcs's for front and rear left and right. RCA's just make it easier but its still possible with out them.

blue and white wire on a pioneer is usually the power antenna wire, most people use it as the lead for power to turn on the amp that is installed, the amp should be hooked up to the RCA jacks on the back of the player to the input RCA jacks on the amp. then the outputs vary, some amps are bridgable which means that you can hook up one speaker to both output speakers this will almost double the watts to the speakers. you must know which side would be positive and which side negative to set it up like this. also important is it a two or four channel amp. this all matters. if you can provide more info I can assure you the best hookup possible for premium 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.
