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.

Not sure where to plug my amp in on back of my head unit it's has multiple rca jacks on the back... It's a jvc kw-av61


Run the speaker wires from the stereo to the amplifier high outputs, or get a converter fr your stereo speakers wires to rca, most older amps have a high output witch have a left +-, Right +- depends on how many channels your amp is..

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.

How to hook up a pyramid pro plus 4 channel pb-180px without using rca jacks for 6 by 9s


The pb180 has High Input receptacles on the back end. They are marked High Input and identified as Channels 1&2 left/right, and channels 3&4 left/right. You will need to identify all speaker wires coming from your head unit ( left front +&--) , and so on. You will be sending the speaker wires from the head unit to the pb180's High Inputs. In other words, the front left speaker wires(+&-) from the head unit will go to the High Input Channels 1&2 side, left input of the pb180, and so on, so the speaker wires coming out of the head unit will need to be cut. And LABEL all sets of speaker wires before you cut them! Then on the OUTPUT end of the pb180, you will be sending the wires back to the the respective speaker wires which are going to the speakers. So it's out from head unit to pb180 and out from pb180 to speakers.
Hopefully you have the plugs that Pyramid uses for the speaker wire inputs to the amp. If not you have to get creative, and make up terminals to fit into the input receptacles. Maybe a wire terminal from Radio shack will fit those pins..
Also, if you go on line: Google search "Pyramid auto amps" and click on "SEARCH" (upper right hand) of their Web Page. Plug in your model number like this, pb180, and you'll be able to download the manual for this amp. The manual has a full description of the wiring options.

Hope this was helpful and Good Luck!

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

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).
