Re: car amplifers,,,,kicker amp's RCA jacks!
You could do a couple things if your head unit has all three outputs, then take them and hook them into the inputs. If you have just the front and the rear outputs, hook those to the inputs front and rear. Then hook the output of the 4 channel to the input of the mono block. I hope this helped -Andrew Hawkins

There was a time when I had two bridged-mono Carver Cube atmps (at a real 400 watts) pushing one 901 each but that was big time overkill.
I now use a Carver AV-406 (functionally the same as your MM7055) with the 901 EQ in between the AV Receiver's front pre-outs and two 110-watt channels. Other channels on the AV-406 pull subwoofer and surround back duties. My AVR directly powers only the center and surround speakers.
" Some DVD\'s sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no
voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause
" Hi, I wrote a short article for someone who had a similar problem a few days ago. I will edit it for you so that it fits. Here it is. Your DVD player should have output connectors in the
back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo
system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect
the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO (or MIXED ) Output
Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of
the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo(or MIXED) then the dialog
will be sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel
speaker you will not hear it. Thus no dialog. NOTE: In your case for the TV that is mono, here is the solution. 1 Connect a stereo pair of RCA cables (red and white "male" connectors at each end) to the Mixed or Stereo Output of the DVD player (NOT ANY SURROUND OUTPUTS). 2 Purchase an RCA type "Y" connector that has 2 female to a single male connectors on it. Walmart about 3 dollars. 3 Plug the single male plug of the Y connector into the back of the TV set's single mono audio input. 4 Connect the stereo RCA pair from the MIXED output of the DVD player into the Y connector that is now on the back of yourTV. 5 Run your yellow Video output from the DVD into the Back of the Set's yellow input. That should do it. The sound should be clear and correct with dialog, effects and music. Hope this helps, Best, Mark
If I understand you correctly each channel has a single input in the amp, then yes! white goes into channel 1 and the red plug goes to channel 2 this way your signal will be stronger which translates into louder sound.
Elaborate a bit on what you're trying to do if this doesn't work for you.
This unit has Pre Outs near the center of the rear panel for all audio channels which will allow you to use external amplification for any speakers you wish to use and the receiver will still control the volume.
See #12 on page 10 of the manual. Try retrevo.com
Just run RCA cable(s) from the desired Pre-Out jack to the input(s) on the external amp with its speaker(s) attached. Set the external amp's volume (if it has one) to very high, then leave it alone. Run through the Yamaha's speaker location and volume settings to level-match the external speakers to the rest.
If you want to simultaneously use the Yamaha-attached speakers for the same channels as the external amp you'll have to match the like channel volumes to each other using a volume control on your external amp, then level-match them as a unit to the other channels.
I had a similar problem, now to be honest there is quite a couple of things that could be faulty. I dont know which cable you are using between the source and the amp, but i am using RCA to mini jack.
I had the same problem that my tuner on amp played through all channels dvd as well, but as soon as i hook up the amp to my computer only some of the chanels played.
I found out that there is actually mono and stereo versions of of that cable thus, if you use a external source and channel it trough the amp with a mono cable, only some channels will be playing.
If you use a stereo cable both channels will work.
The other problem could just be a simple setting on the amp itself.
Usually you can set the number of channels you want the amp to be set on. It is very simple, locate this function an try every setting untill you hear that all channels are working.
It could also be an "ic" on the heatsink of the amp which overheated, if you open up the amp you will be able to see it instantly. This will explain the slight sound you manage to hear.
My advice is to try the first and second sollution and as a last resort send it to a repair shop or if you still have warrenty send it back. I doubt that it is a hardware problem on the amp itself.
It depends on if you want it to be able to play really loud and really clear. The deck will probably drive them pretty good on its own but when you really crank on some head decks the sound can start distortring. Wheres the sub it the package? Get a less powerfull, 50 Watt X4, amp and get a decent sub with a mono amp or they have all in one 4.1 channel amps. To drive the whole system and keep it easy. Have fun
just connect your subwoofer mono RCA to your amp sub single out rca connector. you do not need to megre all those 4terminals into one. in fact internal circuit of those 4rca are merging inside to one since the sub uses only a single amp. 4inputs was meant for sources with multiple sub out
The easiest solution to use your subwoofer is to buy an amp for it. Any old stereo receiver from a garage sale will probably do just fine.
Connect the mono RCA subwoofer output from your Sony with a 1xRCA-to-2xRCA splitter to both the left and right input of the cheap reciever's tape or aux input
connect both speaker outputs of the cheap reciever to the speaker input on your subwoofer. make sure both black (-) outputs on the reciever connect to the black input on the sub, and the red outputs (+) on the reciever are both connected to the red input on the subwoofer.
make sure the cheap receiver's volume is all the way down. turn your Sony up to about the loudest you'll listen to it. turn up the subwoofer amp until it's loud enough to sound good.
leave the subwoofer amp alone, the Sony volume will all you ever need to touch from now on.
You can even now turn off your subwoofer / adjust the volume easily now!
