I wish to add a pioneer GM120 AMP that i have had for some time but forgot the wiring connections so here goes. 2.5 mm red power supply ,2.5 mm black ( N) then there is 0.75 mm orange whats this for? moveing on gray wire, green wire, black wire. i think speaker terminals to connect to cd player with black as common N, then there is a red wire with this group think its switch live but not sure...after that four wires from different place paired up geen with green/black, grey with grey/ black, i think this would be to speakers.
Am i correct or am i just about to blow it all up.

Re: old pioneer GM120 amp
Ok first the large red is battery connection, black large is ground find good source to ground, the 0.75 is most likely the power on for the amp you should hook it up to the power antenna wire on the radio. this will turn on the amp when the radio is turned on. the grey green and black are prob speaker hook ups input. the four wires are speaker outs, the red wire might be power for cd changer test it to see if it puts out power when amp is on.

Ok, without knowing if you have the 2 or 4 Ohm Dual Voice Coil (DVC) version of the subwoofer, I'm going to assume you have the dual 4 Ohm version. The reason why is because, assuming you have the Pioneer GM-5300T amp, that amp does not support an 8 Ohm load. If you wire it in parallel, that would give you a 2 Ohm load. Parallel will be solid red connected to red/white dot, then to amp +, and solid black to black/white dot to amp -. Without knowing more specifics on the amp, that should fix the problem. Let me know what you get.
black=grd red=12v switched orange=12v all the time blue=to control of power amp or auto antenna relay control green=front left+ green/black= front left - green/red=rear left + black/green=rear left - gray=front right+ gray/black=front right - gray/red=rear right + black/gray=rear right - rear out jacks on back of unit goes to ext power amp if you have
GET RED POS+ LONG WIRE 2 BATTERY 2 WERE UR AMP IS GANA GO CONECT IT TO THE AMP POS+ (2)GET NEG- WIRE CONECT 2 WERE THE NEG- IS ON THE AMP THEN THE OTHER END OF SAME NEG- WIRE FIND PLACE NEXT 2 AMP WERE U COULD SCREW NEG- TO CAR METL CLOSE 2 AMP (3)GET LONG REMOTE ANT. WIRE CONECT IT TO WERE THE REMOTE ANT CONECTION IS ON AMP THEN SEND IT TO UR PIONEER IS AND FIND REMOTE ANT . ON UR PIONEER HEAD AND CONECT IT SO IT SHOULD BE CONECTED TO UR AMP LAST PART GET THE LONG RC PLUUGS AND CONECT TO UR AMP THEN RUN THEM TO UR PIONEER HEAD WERE THE RC PLLUGS INPUT IS THEN IT SHUD BE DONE!!!
The power cord goes the switch terminal 1 and 3. Terminal 2 must be the opposite of terminal 1, such that when switched on, 1 & 2 connects. Terminal 4 must be the opposite of terminal 3, such that 3 & 4 connects. Under this setup, you may connect red to terminal 2 and black to terminal 4. Be sure of the 1 & 2 pair, as well as the 3 & 4 pair. then, connect the red and black wires. Hope this will help you.
THAT IS AN OLD RADIO....RED POWER .... HARD TO SAY ABOUT AMPS LOOK ON THE RADIO IT MAY SAY TOTAL AMPS....I WOULD SAY (APX 5 AMP) START WITH THAT . BLACK .......YES GROUND FOR THE POWER ...AND ALSO FOR THE GROUND FOR THE 2 SPEAKERS SO .....GRAY&BLACK SAY LEFT SPEAKER AND....GREEN&BLACK SAY IS YOUR RIGHT SPEAKER IT EASY GOOD LUCK
for that amplifier, it is recommended that you are driving a 4 ohm load. It can drive a 2 ohm load, but will produce more heat and shorten the life of the amplifier. Is the subwoofer a single or dual voice coil? You'll want to make sure that you're not running below a 2 ohm load or you'll always go into protection. Also, try disconnecting the speaker wire completely from the amp so nothing but power is connected. If the amplifier is still in protection mode when no speakers are hooked up, then the amp is bad and will need repair or replacement.
schematic & instructions on deck
red (+) - power - 2 amp's power inlet power (+)
black (-) - ground - 2 amp's power inlet ground (-)
deck yellow wire - remote - 2 the remote amp
deck outputs 2 the RCA amp inputs
amp RCA outputs 2 speakers
it is wise that a pro will install the system
it will give u less concerns and u will have warranty on the installation
this will save u the money u will spend for fixing a bad installation
