Question about Pioneer GM-X324 Car Audio Amplifier
I just bought a 2000 Mazda Millennia S. In the trunk, disconnected, is one these. The wires are all there taped together in a nice bundle. How do I connect this thing up?
You need to figure out where the wires go and to what type power they are connected. if you look in the back of the stereo where the wires are(the ones from the radio harness), these are the main ones(yellow=12v constant) this one keeps memory for your radio. This one shouldn't be used to connect to your amp. Find out if the amp had a dedicated power wire directly from the (+)battery to the +12v connection on the amp. The other is the remote wire(it's always blue in color from the radio harness). it goes on the remote connection on the amp, when the radio turns on, so does the amp and when radio is off the amp is off. The last is the ground(black)wire. Connect this one to the car chassis(any bolt on the car, i usually use the seat bolt. Now the rest of the wires are for sound. The rca's go from the "output" of the radio to the amp's "input". What's left is connecting the speakers, that's the easy part, just make sure you trace all your wires and if you have to pull the stereo out of the dashboard to verify the connections...do it. This will save ensure that the job is done not only right, but safely. get a probe light tester from autozone or any parts store to check your voltages before you connect the wires. Better safe than sorry. Seems like a lot but it's really not. good luck.
