You will need to call the manufacturer, ZAPCO - 209-577-4268, or email them at tech support firstname.lastname@example.org , in order to purchase the part you are missing. It is possibel to hard wire the RCA parts you need and creat a homemade fix, but in all honesty it is not worth it, and it will probably introduce a lot of interference in to the quality of your signal path rendering it a bad option. Give them a call / email. If they will only sell the part to a dealer, call Car Depot @ 615 - 269-8080 and they can have the part purchased and delivered to you for a small fee. Good luck.

check the rca cables on the back to see if you might have the sub woofer cable in wrong rca spot
this is how it should be wired from your radio front output a set of rca cables go to the radio input of the eq. if you have sub out on radio it will not be used ... eq takes place of it ... turn off subout on radio ... to use eq or preamp you must have at 2 amps 1 for mids and tweets and 1 for subs to work eq right
then from the eq you have another set of rca cables comming from the front output to your mids and tweet amp and then if you dont have a second amp u wont need rear output move over to the suboutput and run a set of rca cables from eq's sub output to sub amp this is how the audio cable section should be connected if you still dont get it to work proper then then it has a electronic issue and need to warranted out if still in warranty or buy new one .... here is a link to the install manual with a wire diagram for repair shop .....http://www.poweracoustik.com/pa2006/manual%20and%20catalog/Processors/PWM-20.pdf
no those wire is not for speakers out put that for signal in put only if there is rca jack follow the instruction and run your cable if your dont know dont guess you will burn unit audio out put if install wrong
top left - orange.....goes to aux or memory wire top right - blue.......goes to the remote wire used with amps bottom left - black.......goes to the ground wire bottom right - red........this goes to your hot wire
Provided the rest of your system is all tuned an in proper shape, and up for the wattts, the best sound to set, starting with the low end...start with is a slightly elevated above zero (about 1/4 up from zero) then slowly gradually slope it down to 1/4 below zero in middle and then back up to 1/4 above at the high end.
The result is a gently curved V type shape.
Now, knock down the highest 2 or 3 freq bands a few clicks till they are just above zero. (1/8).
This is the curve you would shoot for with a real-time analyzer for SQ, punch and clarity.
take two out puts from your cd player and run them in the inputs of the equalizer and believe me they are going to work.Remember if the outputs from your CD player are of high note (out put)the volume should be kept at minimal to avoid the rumble.
