Hello. my amp has a cd input rca line and also right and left speaker inputs. my cd player has rca amp speaker line(no cd input line) is it ok to forget about about the cd input? And it has the 16 pin connector. do i wire up the ground, acc, and battery without the extra speaker wires from the connector sinse they are hooked up through the amp? this is for a 28 year
old motorcycle and i'm running low on money. thank you for any help you could give me.

You can run the speaker wires to the speaker level input on the amp or i believe you can run another set of speaker wires spliced into the existing wires in parallel to the speaker level input along with the speakers that are already hooked up if you are using the amp for a sub or other speakers that you have added to the existing system.
You should be able to use your RCA output (Line Out) from your Pioneer to the input of your PWM-16. Then take the PMW output to an amplifier and then to your speakers. Your EQ only uses RCA's so an amplifier after
it would really bring the sound to life. The amp need not be huge as you have an output for subs also. You could try a line converter to change the RCA lines to speaker wire connections. Not sure if the output would be enough to power a speaker but it's worth a try.
Just connect your speaker leads to the input of the B65N (gray and gray/white pigtail leads), run the RCA cables to your amp (red=right) inputs, adjust the left and right level controls to match the amp input without distortion, and mount the unit.
This may sound dumb, but are there any other inputs left on the amp? Most amps that i have worked with have a special set of inputs for high input. (by high input you mean speaker level right?) If those exist the obvious answer is to use those. They should be labeled, so just hook them up according to them. You may need a special adapter from the amp manufacturer. If you dont have any high level inputs or any not broken inputs left you have two options. You can either A: junk the amp or B: open it up and solder new connectors back on. (it sounds harder than it really is. There are four large pieces of metal to solder onto the board for a set of inputs)
It sounds like there is a difference in the signal levels on the inputs to the amps. You did not specify what the RCA's are connected to on the head unit side. If they are connected to a stereo pair of preamp outputs, you may be able to solve the problem by using only the channel with the higher signal and use an RCA "Y" adapter to split it to both amps. If they are connected to a dedicated subwoofer output on the head unit, make sure that the head unit is set for "subwoofer". Some less expensive head units, I know JVC in particular, has only 1 set of line outputs and requires you to go into their "PSM" (Preferred Setting Mode) to set the line output mode and if you select "subwoofer", then allows you to select the low pass frequency.
If you are converting speaker-level outputs through a "line out converter", check both the input and output levels.
Also, if you are splitting an output from the head unit, you still need to connect 2 RCA's to the amp inputs. The signal will be properly split if you use a 1-female to 2-male "Y" adapter. To feed the same signal to both amps, you would need 3 "Y" adapters. Feed the output signal to the female end of the first "Y", and plug the male ends into the other 2 "Y" adapters. Then, the 4 plugs you have left on the ends go into your amp inputs.
You can plug into the left channel and it will feed both the left and right channels.
To confirm that it's feeding both channels, connect the speaker to one channel at a time. With signal fed into the left channel only, you should get sound when you connect the speaker to either channel.
If I got the specs right, your amp is a 4 channel hence the 4 RCA inputs. Probably the simplest would be to feed the 2 X RCA out of the deck to the 1 & 2 RCA in of the amp. This amp has also a line out, feed the amp's lineout back to the 3 & 4 in. This way, all four channels get same input from the deck and you will have identical power to all 4 speakers (front & rear).
An afterthought is to also use the 4 outputs of the deck (since they are there anyway and it is not a good tech practice to leave outputs without load/speakers) and connect 4 mid-range or 4 smaller speakers.
Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Unless your amp is 1 (one) ohm stable then you may have fried it. When you attach a 2 ohm load across a bridged amp then you have effectivly placed each output channel on a 1 ohm load. Not a good thing in most cases. Try hooking up ONE speaker on one channel and one input to that one channel one at a time. Then switch the speaker/input to the other channel and see if you can get either or both channels to work independently. Needless to say you must turn the amp off before you make ANY change in the wiring.
