Question about Pioneer AVIC-N2 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

Pioneer 5.1 dolby surround multichannel processor ?s

I have a Pioneer AVIC-N2 head unit w/ the hide away box that is in the trunk, a Pioneer DEQ-P8000 5.1 surround multichannel processor, a Pioneer AXM-P8000 DSP controller, a Pioneer GEX-P10XMT XM traffic nav-unit, and a Pioneer cd changer that I have installed in my vehicle but I can't seem to get things going.

-In what order do I run and connect the IP-Bus cables?

-Do I use the Sub-woofer preouts from the back of the head unit to send a non fading signal to the multi channel processor?

-How do I activate the 5.1 surrond sound on the head unit?

-Also since I don't have an amp or a line output converter for the center speaker can I just run speaker wire from the multichannel processor to the center speaker?

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, Thank you

You will need extra amp(s) to run 5.1 surround sound using out IP-Bus at the brain to in IP-Bus at the processor and rca output to the multi channels amp(s) and control the surround mode which is automatically activate by the format of the disc. The IP-Bus cables is colored polarized at each end to inter connect all components. Just hook them in series follow the color you may add all the components you have. You can also down load wiring diagrams at pioneerelectronics.com. Goodluck.

Notice: Upgraded Flex-Cable for Flip Screen in Navigation Models AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 To: January 3, 2007 Dear Valued Customer: Re: Upgraded Flex-Cable for Flip Screen in Navigation Models AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 We would like to inform you of a potential service issue with Pioneer's AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2, inform you of our plans to resolve this service issue, and ask for your help in notifying consumers. If a consumer is not experiencing any issues currently, there is no need for the consumer to take immediate action because the one-time fix to resolve the service issue will be available if an AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 later experiences the service issue. _Importantly, the service issue does not pose any health or safety risk._ Pioneer is aware of a potential issue with the flex-cable powering the flip screen to the AVIC-N1 and the AVIC-N2. After a number of power cycles, the cable has been observed to fail and cause the unit to malfunction (symptoms may include, but are not limited to, the flip-screen becoming blank) -- flex-cable failure can only be confirmed by Pioneer; standard service charges may apply for service issues not related to the flex-cable upgrade. This issue may affect almost all AVIC-N1 units and AVIC-N2 units. Please contact Pioneer at the number listed below if you have a question about whether your AVIC-N1 or AVIC-N2 unit is affected by this issue, or if a specific malfunction affecting your AVCI-N1 or AVIC-N2 is related to this issue. To address this issue, Pioneer is providing a one-time cable upgrade to consumers for their AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 at no charge to consumers for parts and labor. Pioneer will offer the free upgrade either upon request or automatically if an affected unit is serviced for another reason. Pioneer will exclusively perform the free cable upgrade for all units (i.e., no other service facility should perform the cable upgrade). If you own an AVIC-N1 or AVIC-N2 and you are experiencing the service issue, please contact Pioneer Customer Service toll free at 800-421-1603 to arrange for the cable upgrade. Pioneer service representatives are available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Time). Customers who have paid for the cable upgrade are eligible for reimbursement of certain service costs if sufficient proof of service can be provided -- please contact Pioneer at the above-listed phone number for more information regarding reimbursement rules. Customers can also review FAQs regarding this service issue. Click here to view the FAQs. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this service issue may cause you, and we thank you for your cooperation and continued support of Pioneer. Sincerely, Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. *Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc., 2265 East 220th Street, Long Beach, CA 90810* ------------------------------------------------------------------------

No power?


Do you have the complete N2 system. It is consist of the indash unit and the brain(hide-away unit) plus a numbers of cables(data, gps antenna and many others). If you only have the deck alone and the power harness then you only have less than half of the system. Let me know if you need the rest. Goodluck

Check the connections at your brain, you probably pull it loose when you removed the N1. Goodluck.
