Question about Sony MDS-JE480 Mini Disc Player

2 Answers

JE 480..I,m trying to connect it to an amplifier. The manual shows 4 rca connectors at the back, going into 4 in the amp. I only have 2 (per channel), in the amp. So I just use two into two. When i play a previously recorded(not by me) mini disk, it only plays half the track. Is this a fault in the recording, or my wrong connections? thanks! Graham

I am considering buying a Sony MDS-JE 480 and have read that 'Auto Pause' is not a feature on this model but can be activated with an old remote. Is this fact or simply a theory? The 'Auto Pause' feature is something I need and don't want to purchase a unit without it.

    If you don't have another disc to try you can simply check the VU meters on the player to see if both left & right channels are working. If only one working then it's a disc problem. Good luck.

Try another recording to eliminate the media as the cause.

Find the two audio OUTs (Left and Right) on the player and plug them into the Left and Right Audio IN's of any available input on the amplifier. It sounds like you're either missing one of the channels or you have them plugged into different inputs.

Why do my subwoofers not work when connected to an amplifier that is powered?


The bus connection is actually not an RCA looks very, similar i think if you look at it it will say IN. as far as i remember its an input for like a CD changer. Run a Y splitter on one of the other RCA out put, split the signal and run one to your bass amp. it does not affect the voltage in the RCA signal. i think your amp is trying to send a signal instead of receiving one.

Amp stopped playing riding down the road, power light turned off. came back on when i unplugged the rca's and cuts back off when i try to plug them back in.


Faulty RCA cables, Or worse possible solution is if your amp stopped playing when it was pumping at high volume, you may have blown the RCA connectors inside your head unit Or inside your amp. If possible try another known good working amp with the wires you already have, If same happens, try different RCA cables. If problem persists after trying these, Its your head unit RCA connecters or amp RCA connectors. To rule out your amp connectors, try your amp in a friends car if possible, to rule out your head unit, try another good known working amp in your car with the wiring you already have

How do you connect the amp with the stereo


  • Choose where to put your new amp. If you are installing subwoofers it's usually best to put the amplifier in the trunk next to or attached to your subwoofer enclosure. If you are going to power your main car speakers with the amplifier then it may be better to put the amp under the passenger's seat.

  • 2

    Purchase the following wiring for the amp: A thick power cable (the thickness required depends on the total wattage of your amp, ask a sales rep or consult your amplifier's manual for the proper gauge) that will have to reach from your battery to the amp (the power cable should also have an inline fuse to protect the amplifier); 3 feet of ground cable of equal thickness as the power cable; an RCA signal cable to carry the left and right signals from your head unit to the amp; a "remote on" wire which can be any thin wire (20 to 24 gauge) that will also run from the head unit to the amp; speaker wire (if you are powering subwoofers you should only need about 3 feet of 12-gauge wire per sub, if you're going to power your main speakers you will need enough 16-gauge wire to reach each speaker from the amp, 12 feet per speaker is usually safe).

  • 3

    Gather the following tools: Screwdrivers, wire cutters, wire strippers, pliers, a utility knife, sandpaper, masking tape with a pen for labeling, 2 crimp-on o-ring ends for the power and ground cables. If you're hooking the amp to your speakers, you'll also need 2 crimp-on female spade connectors for each speaker.

  • 4

    Find a manual with instructions on taking off the dash of your car (not the whole dash--just the head unit, in order to hook wires to the back), and also to get at your car's speakers if you are hooking the amp to them.
    The Installation

  • 1

    Disconnect the ground (negative) cable from your battery. Never work on the electrical system of your car with this connected.

  • 2

    Attach the side with the fuse of the thick positive (+/red) power cable to the connector on the positive terminal of your battery; the o-ring can be sandwiched in the bolt on the connector that connects your car to the battery. Now put the fuse in the fuse holder.

  • 3

    Run the power cable through the firewall of your car (there is usually an opening on the driver's side) and to your amplifier. If your amp is in the back it is usually best to run this wire under the plastic molding that goes along the bottom edge of your car. Be careful where you run the wire because the power cables should never be near the signal or speaker wires.

  • 4

    Find a metal bolt or screw on the metal of your car near the amp to connect the ground cable to. This should be as close to the amp as possible, never more than 3 feet. Unscrew it and clean the metal surface with sandpaper. Attach the ground to it with the o-ring and screw it back down firmly.

  • 5

    Remove your head unit and run the signal and remote on wires from behind the head unit to your amp. Connect the RCA connectors and the remote on wire to the back of your head unit.

  • 6

    (If you are installing subwoofers and not running your normal speakers off the amplifier skip to step 7.) Run the 16-gauge wire from each one of your speakers to the amplifier. On the amp side use the masking tape to label each wire so you know which speaker it is. On the speaker end-strip a 1/4 inch off the ends of the wires and crimp on the female spade connectors with your pliers. Connect the spade connectors to your speakers making sure to match the positive (+/red or white) with the positive terminal and the negative (-/black) with the negative one.

  • 7

    Connect everything to your amplifier. Only strip off as much as you need off the end of each wire to make a solid connection, you don't want any exposed wire hanging out. If you have subs, attach them to the amp with the 12-gauge speaker wire.

  • 8

    Secure your amp to something. If it is in the back you can screw it directly to your subwoofer enclosure. If it is under a seat you may just want to get some straps that hold it down.

  • 9

    Reconnect your car's negative cable to the battery. Test your system and make sure everything works, going around to see that every speaker is on before you put everything back together

    How can i test my rca output jacks with a test light? pioneer deh p3100ub. hooked up spkr, nothing. tried one rca plug to white(lt) and then red(rt). Unit has 4 rca jacks, 2 for subwfr and 2 for front...


    :) the rca jacks have to be connected to an amplifier,, their signal is too lay to even light a bulb.. you have to connect it to a car amplifier and then from the amplifier to the speakers..

    Just so you'd know,, once your deck plays and you hear music on your speakers through your normal speaker wires,, RCA jacks work..

    Ok you have 4 jacks,, 2 subs and 2 front.. These should connect to a preamp,, which takes 4 inputs and allows you to equalize or adjust how the music should sound,, now from the pre-amp,, it runs to an amplifier,, thats powers the subs and another that powers the speakers.. Some amps have 4 inputs so you can use one amp for your subs mids and heights..

    for example a basic music system is

    1 cd player
    1 pre amp
    1 amplifier (4 inputs, 4 channel out)

    you bridge 1+2 and connect this to 1 12" double coil sub woofer

    the next 2 connect to 2 mid speakers example "rockford or ev 5 / 8 " and 2 tweeters for heights..

    Thats a kicking tricked out basic car audio system,,,

    Hope that helps you understand how it works..

    I have a jvc kds580 and i wanna run a passive Bazooka EL and 4 other speakers. Can i drive the sub with the 2 RCA OUTS on the back of the unit? If not, how do i drive the sub?


    RCA Outs are very low power signal connectors. They would have a hard time running a pair of headphones.

    What you need is a Power Amp that the RCA's plug into and your subs Connect to.
    You need an Amp (Amplifier) that powers a similar number of Watts to what your Subs Capacity is. (ie; your subs have a ratting of 100W (Watts), then you need an amplifier with 100W per channel; that's a 200W amp for a two way (Speaker) amp, or a 400W rating for an amp with 4 channels (4 Speaker connectors)
    You can run a lower power amp on your subs, and use ony a portion of your speakers capacity; but if you get an amp that supplies more wattage than your speakers capacity, then you'll blow your speakers, their performance will deteriorate slowly. eventually they will not be able to generate a clear reproduction, Speakers are irrepairable.

    Sorry for the long explanation.
    This is something you wan't to do right, the first time.

    Cheers,
    Richard.

    Legend Amp hook up manual.


    Pretty Straight Forward get a 8 or 4 gauge amp wiring kit.

    Run your hot wire to the +12V from the battery make sure to install the supplied inline fuse near the battery don't connect to the battery until installation is complete.

    Run the REM to your stereo power ant. Wire. if available.

    Run the GND to Metal Chassis Ground keep it as short as possible.

    Run the RCA Cable from the back of the Stereo to the RCA Inputs or Low Level on the amp.

    This amp is 2 Ohm Stereo Stable which means you can connect 2 (4 ohm) speakers in parallel to each channel or 1 (4 ohm) speaker on each channel or you can connect 1 (4 ohm) Speaker in bridged mode.

    There are other speaker configurations you could use but you cannot drop the load below 2 Ohm in stereo mode and no lower than 4 ohm in bridged mode.

    Hope this helps

    How should I wire up this amp and sub


    The amp's not actually a very good match for the sub, since the sub can be wired for 2 ohms or 8 ohms, and the amplifier is most efficient at 4 ohms in bridged mode. My advice would be to wire the amp in bridged mode, and wire the sub for an 8 ohm load. To do this, the amp's (+) wire should go to the (+) terminal on one of the sub's voice coils. Then run a wire from the (-) terminal on the OTHER voice coil to the (-) terminal on the amp. The remaining (+) and (-) terminals (on opposite voice coils) should be connected to each other with a wire. Your original wiring setup had the amplifier connected to only one voice coil, while the other voice coil was shorted.
