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.

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.

The protection lite comes on when amp is given powerand sometimes it does not come on but it is still not getting any sound its not my wires they all work for any other amp tell me is my amp fried


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Sounds like you are overloading the amp. Please check speakers impedance. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you

The protect led has turned on and will not allow the amp to work. I've tried re-wiring the whole unit, changed the fuse to a high wattage, I've given it time to cool off in case it was over heating. Ive...


mosfet have a built in shut off incase of a blown resistor, if the resistor blows,it will shut down the amp, the resistors job is to inhibit power to prevent overheating, you will have to check the OHMS of each resistor to find out which one has gone......hope this was helpfull

When I turn the volume up even a little bit, the protect light comes on and stays on


Hiya,

Try disconnecting the speaker cables, then turn it up and see if it protects. If not, then connect one speaker at a time (on very low volume otherwise could pop the amp) and see if you can identify a faulty speaker/channel. Then try a known working speaker on the amp channel that is giving problems (to eliminate a fault with the amp). If the known working speaker also trips the amp, then it is that channel faulty. Hopefully you get away with a bad speaker wire though!!

Best of luck

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.

Absence of sound


If you have another amp in the vehicle, swap the RCAs and speakers to see if you get sound through the other amp.

Generally, if the red light is on and there is no significant DC on the speaker terminals, the amp is in good working order (for the older Rockford amps).

JENSEN XA 184 AMPLIFIER


Hi, Jensen is under different ownership from when your amp was made, so it's unlikely that you'll find a replacement plug for the high-level input. A high-low converter is also called a line-out converter. It's a device that connects to the speaker wires and changes the signal to a low-level RCA connection. This allows you to use the amp's RCA plugs with your speaker wiring (through RCA signal cables). A line-out converter should be available any place that sells car audio accessories.
