The wiring is fairly straight forward. Along the top row of the ten pin plug =
(Left to Right)

Front Left positive,

Front left Negative,

Control wire from your stereo head unit should be thin blue wire sometimes listed as Remote Wire this switches your amp on and off via your head unit so you don't run your battery flat,

Front Right Negative,

Front Right Positive.

Bottom Row=(Left to Right)

Left Back Positive,

Left Back Negative

Centre Nothing

Right Back Negative

Right Back Positive

These are all inputs from your head unit.

To bridge from 4 channel to 2 you connect

one left speaker to Ch B Left Positive and Ch A Left Negative

one Right speaker to Ch B Right Negative and Ch A Right Positive

Ten Switching the Input Select switch to 2CH

Alternatively if your unit has RCA's on the back of the Head unit you can use them to run your subs.
Hope that helps.

Bass cut off when volume is too high


When an amplifier shuts the Bass off that means its going into protection mode otherwise it will burn out the outputs. One way is to turn your gains down, Pioneer amps are not the best amps for bass out there, they are more for car speakers, I personally wont use a pioneer amp to run my subwoofers especially if they are hard driven subs like JL , Kicker Solo's and MTX subs. But for now just turn the gains down to 3/4 and that should help u, you can also install a fan to keep your amp cooler, if this never happened before in 5 yrs and now it does then that means your amp is just tired and the inside components are overheating easily, thats common with Pioneer and Sony amps.

Good luck buddy.

Smoke was coming out of my subs and it was alot.


Open the sub box and see what it looks like before you go purchasing stuff with no problem for certain. You may have had wires touch and they will smoke. Also try connecting a different speaker to the amp and see if it works. this lets you know if the amp/speaker is working or not

It should be better to use the Pioneer GM-7200M Amp with your subs.

For 8 ohm setup hook up this way:
Amp out+ to Sub1 +
Sub1 - to Sub 2 +
Amp out - to Sub2 -

For 2 ohm setup hook up this way:
Amp + to Sub1 +
Sub1 + to Sub2 +
Amp - to Sub1 -
Sub1 - to Sub2 -

Witch is better


hi there. ill start with the wiring. you should have a blue remote lead going to the back of your head unit, the power cable running straight from the amp to the battry, the earth should be earthed in a fairly decent place, any metal inside the car realy, and then your wires pos and neg from the amp to the subs. the reason why the kenwood might not have much base on it is to my knowledge, there should be a switch somewhere on the amp that will increase or decrease the power input for the speakers, if this is set very low then hense why theres not much base comming from them. if the amp is on and its giving something to the subs it probably isnt the wiring. try checking the amp for the switch first, if you cant find it try the pioneer amp and see if theres any diference.
dont hesitate to contact me if you get stuck


cheers, adam

Protection light keeps coming on


Check the wiring between the sub and the amplifier. That's seems to be the only thing left that could cause a problem. If it's shorted to ground or pinched so the conductors are shorted together, it could cause the symptoms you listed.
