Hello southernbike,

With a 5-channel amp (stereo L/R front, stereo L/R rear, and subwoofer) you only need the two pair of stereo inputs.

You do not say which brand and model of amp you have, but most have an output configuration similar to the Alpine shown in this link. Connect the front and rear RCA's from your receiver, your vehicle speakers to the respective output terminals, and your subwoofer to the 5th channel terminals.

Hope this helps.

How hook amp up to a oem integration SNI-15 line output convertor


The amp needs an RCA input to communicate with the head unit. SOLDER the wires that come out of the head unit for the front speakers to the SNI-15, making sure that the polarity and right/left is correct. Do this for the front and rear speakers if you have a 4 channel amp. Cut the wires if you add new speakers and run the new wire from the speakers or sub box directly to the amp, or skin back the wire insulation and tap on if you use the factory speakers :( then plug your RCA cable from the SNI-15 to the input side of the amp. Don't forget that most new cars have their own amp so you might have to locate it and bypass the speakers wires around it. Don't make a mess in case you have to put everything back to factory for resale. You can avoid all this by installing a new/modern head unit with built in RCA outputs for front, rear, and sub woofer. I hope this helps. Ray

Yamaha rx-v2500 receiver how to hook up speakers


HI,

Follow these steps to connect a powered sub woofer to your receiver: You typically have two options when connecting a powered sub woofer. Input (1) on the rear of the sub woofer would be used when connecting the sub woofer to the receiver using speaker wires. You would then connect the main speakers to the opposite end, or output or the sub woofer to the main speakers. Option (2) would be using RCA line level output jacks, input (2) on the rear panel of the sub woofer directly to the single sub woofer output on the back of an AV receiver. blank.gif

Hi, my problem is only the front 2 speakers work i have tried all the speakers in the front 2 connections of the unit & all speakers are working but none when in the rear, center, & sub woofer unit...


Without knowing which receiver etc you have... make sure your "mode" is set to 5 channel, Dolby Pro or similar. And even then, make sure your source is 5 channel. What are you using for an input cable? It needs to be able to provide 5 channel. Standard RCA stereo type cords do not. You need either optical, "coax" or hdmi. Lastly do you actually have a 5 channel program? Many older movies, and standard cable boxes only output stereo, not 5 channel.

Hi i trying to figure out how to wire up my rca's i have a pionner deck in on the back of it it has front output,rear output,sub output ,and also a audio output .now im trying to up it to a clarion eq that...


The "Front output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the "Main In" on the Clarion EQ. I'm assuming that your Clarion EQ can only deal with one input, and will send the adjusted (equalized) signal out both of the outputs.
The "Front output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Front Input" on the 4 channel amp.
The "Rear output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Rear Input" on the 4 channel amp.
The "Sub output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the Left/Right Input on the Epicenter. The Left/Right Output on the Epicenter would need a Y-splitter for each side, so that you could connect each amp separately. One suggestion would be to use one sub amp for both subs.

    I am trying to hook up a powered sub woofer to a yamaha rx-v461 and i dont know what cables go where on the back of the sub there are two speaker ports and there are two plug ins but each speaker port has...


    Your subwoofer probably has both high-power inputs and "normal"low inputs. The first are for receivers, which don't have link-level output for sub, so they are able to take already amplified signal as input.
    You need to use link-level input of your sub and connect it to subwoofer-output of your receiver. The output is marked as OUTPUT - Subwoofer and is black-color RCA plug (don't confuse with subwoofer INPUT under MULTI CH INPUT).
    Receiver has only mono output for subwoofer. If your sub has stereo input (white/red RCA plugs), connect just the left channel to the receiver, it will still work.
    Don't connect anything to the speaker output on the sub, you don't need that.

    Subwoofer to receiver hookup


    In general, there are two ways to hook up your sub-woofer. First using the high level outputs from your receiver ( speaker output from the front R & L speaker terminals ) run a set of wires from the outputs to the speaker inputs on the sub-woofer, you do this in concert with the speaker wires going to the front R & L speakers which you then attach to the R & L speaker outputs on the sub woofer amp. Note that the sub woofer doesn't power your front speakers, the connections from the sub amp are just a pass through connection where the signal needed by the sub is parasitically taken from the inputs.
    Second is via a low level output from your receiver / amp to the low level input on your sub amp. This is normally done via a RCA type of patch cable and connected to the sub woofer RCA jack on the rear of the source receiver or amp, Next run the patch cord to the sub amp an into the RCA jack input. IF you have a right and left input, use the Right input.
