This plug configuration should be the same as the old autotek. The wires on the sides of the remote are the positive speaker wires. With the amp orientated so that the 3 wires are on top, the wire left of the remote on the amp plug should be the left positive. The one directly under it is the negative for that channel. The ones to the right are the right channel (negative on bottom again).

You can confirm left/right after you get the amp powered up. Drive signal into one RCA jack at a time and check for output on the corresponding speaker wires.

No base in one speaker


Usually this is because the base driver in your speaker is shot. I have repaired hundreds of amplifiers and have never found just the BASS being low at the output of the amp. If the amp is working, then the likelyhood of the speaker being defective is good. A quick test is to just swap speakers and see if the problem moves to the other channel.

If you have a very old transistorized amplifier, you may have a large value coupling capacitor between the actual amplifier circuitry and the speaker output. This is because the older amps had a large DC voltage at the output of the amplifier and this had to be removed or the speaker would be damaged. This capacitor may have finally given up the ghost and needs replacing. While you are at it, you may as well replace both as the other is soon to go.

My bet is that the woofer in the speaker cabinet has blown.

You have to cut the factory speaker wires on both sides of the amp and solder them together.(bypass the amp) Pull out the factory radio so you can identify the color of the speaker wires or look at the wire colors on the back of the factory speakers.

If you can help me i need to know if it is possible to wire a amp into a 2002 landcrusier stock headunit cheers


yes, there is an amp turn-on wire from the head unit (black with a red stripe). You will need to add a power wire and fuse from the fuse box to run the amp. You can use the speaker outputs as inputs to the amp, depending on what you are trying to do. Please let me know if you need more help, and identify the amp model as well as the speakers you will connect.

Need wiring diagram for Sony XM-E70 Equalizer/Amp


You need 1 thick ground cable ( usually brown)
you need 1 thick power cable ( same thickness and wire as ground usually red )
you should have 1 rem wire ( thin blue )
RCAs, 2 for sub, extra 2 for 2 speakers.
The rest I have no idea what they are.

You need speaker cables to sub or amp.

Some products use different colouring. Maybe the 9 pin connector is for head deck to speakers.

Amp has power but now sound


You have not given any information on your models. Chances are you wired them incorrectly. either the first time, or both times. How do you know you burned up the sub and not the amp? chances are the amp is fried, most likely due to wiring the speakers to the wrong impedance.
