Re: How Do I Wire An Amp To A Factory Stereo Without Rca...
Purchase a line output converter (LOC) such as the PAC SNI-45T shown here. Tap the LOC inputs into your rear channel speakers and run RCA's from the LOC to your amp. The unit shown in the link also has a trigger wire that you connect to the remote terminal of your amp. You can get a cheaper LOC and just run a switched 12V source to the amp if you wish.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

well here we go how do you have your pioneer radio connected . did you run the radio speaker wire out to the factory speaker or did you have an amp connected to the rca output jacks.
1 well if the radio connect by the speaker wire out the output chip in the radio is fried and needs repair ....
2. if u have a amp connected to power your speakers for sound check the amp to make sure you have power and no lose connection or speaker wires disconnected. 3. it also possible that the rca jacks are fried too
I no by experience that pioneer loses ground on the audio output jack (rca) well what we did to fix it is.. take and 18 gauge wire stripe back about 1/2" to 1" of the insulation to expose the copper wire and wrap this around the metal casing of the rca jacks and then ground the wire to a ground point do this for both left and right rca jacks...
Your amp needs to be connected to your stereo via rca to the rca jacks in the back of the stereo then connect the remote wire to the remote wire in the back of your stereo it should be blue with a remote flag on it. after that you need to ground the amp and run a wire to the positive terminal on the battery. make sure you install a fuse on the wire in between the battery and the amp.
1- you need to provide a fused power wire from battery to amp
2- provide a ground wire from amp to car body or frame (be sure to clean off paint if connected to body)
3- connect your remote wire to your fuse box (16 to 22 gauge wire will be fine)
4- connect a line output converter which will allow you to use rca jacks (one side connects to the speaker wire in your car and the other to your rca jacks)
5- finish by connecting your speaker wires and rca jacks

Most factory radios do not have RCA outs, but most will have a remote wire. Usually used for a power antenna option. Your remote wire from the amp could be hooked to the power antenna wire on the factory radio and it would work great for turning on the amp. As for the RCA inputs on your amp, you will not be able to use them without RCA outs on your factory deck. Although most amps offer a high level input alternative and will use the standard speaker level out on your factory deck. This means the rear channel speaker wires from your factory deck will be used to feed the signal to the amp. You will have to check the instructions and manufactorer recomendations for the amp you are trying to hook up. Have fun and good luck!
you can get a amp to work on any deck although u may have to rig it a little bit all u need is sound coming from the stereo and if u will take the rca one end and cut it and strip it u have a wire inside each one and then u have ground wires surrounding the inside wire twirl them up like 1 wire and then strip back the inside wire hook that one to front left pos wire and hook ground wire to front laft neg and do the other rca wire the same just hook it uo to front right or if it has rca jacks on the back of the stereo just hook ur rca wires into them and to the amp
Big red cable goes from + on amp to battery. Then the black - wire goes from amp to body ground (unpainted ground) The Blue remote wire goes from amp remote to the remote wire on back of the cd deck. Then, the rca jacks go from Rear Audio Out Jacks on CD deck to the Audio IN Jacks on amp.
Speakers have Red + and Black - which match up to screws on amp.
P.S. Make sure fuse is out while hooking everything up.
Supplies needed: - 8 Gauge power wire (long enough to run from your battery to the amp placement) WITH an inline fuse!! - Depending on your stereo (if it has amp pre-outs or not) you will either need RCA cables (long enough to reach your amp from your stereo) OR a Line-Out converter AND RCA cables. - The power lead that connects to your "REMOTE" line on your stereo (long enough to reach from amp to stereo - usually blue) - A good ground wire ( long enough to reach a metal part of your car from the amp)
====================================================================== STEP 1: Find a spot to run the power wire from your battery - through your firewall and into your car - and then to your amp. (DO NOT CONNECT IT TO ANYTHING YET) STEP 2: Remove your car stereo and look to see if you have PRE-AMP outs (RCA connectors for an amp on the rear of the unit) A- if you do, GREAT.. proceed to step 3 B- if you don't.. you will need to get a LINE-OUT CONVERTER - what this does is converts the higher signals from your standard wires on your radio, to RCA style wires to connect to your amp. B2- you will also want to buy a wiring harness kit for your stereo, unless you want to hack away at your factory wires.. (not recommended) - connect the harness kit to your factory wire harness, wire in your leads for the output converter, and run the other end to your stereo.* *you will need to know which wires run to the speakers you plan to power with the amplifier B3 - once the converter is properly connected - proceed to step 3 STEP 3: Plug the RCA cables into the stereo or converter, and run them properly from behind your radio to the amp but DO NOT CONNECT THEM YET. STEP 4: Connect the REMOTE wire from your stereo to the same wire for your amp . (this enables the amp to turn on/off with your radio.. otherwise.. you will have alot of dead batteries) STEP 5: re-install your stereo into the car. STEP 6: Connect the RCA speakers into the INPUTS on your amp STEP 7: Connect the REMOTE wire to your amp. STEP 8: Connect the speaker wire from the OUTPUTS on your amp to the speakers you wish to power STEP 9: Connect the POWER CABLE to the amp PROPERLY STEP 10: Connect the GROUND CABLE to a metal part of your car (sheet metal, not just a bolt) STEP 11: Connect the POWER CABLE to the battery cable STEP 12: Re-connect your Battery STEP 13: Start your car, and test your radio.
If you have any issues from here.. you need to re-check all of your connections.
I believe that this model Sony amp includes High Level inputs. Those allow you to connect the normal speaker wires coming out of the factory stereo to the amp. If for some reason it doesn't include the inputs you can buy a high level to low lever converter that will give you rca from the factory unit.
