The only wire that you should hook up from the amp to your head unit is the remote power wire which is the blue wire on the wiring harness for the head unit. Sometimes they are blue with a white stripe. Hope this helps.

I just bought a Jensen vm9215bt head unit. And I do not know how to hook up my subwoofer. I have three cables coming from my amp. I have one of them so the amp will turn on, I have that one connected. But...

Most amplifiers have a common color code to hook them up. On your head unit, there should be a blue wire. That is your amp. Turn on lead. The positive + symbol goes to your battery +. And that lead is usually red. Your negative terminal - is this symbol and the wire s usually black. That either goes to the - side of the battery or grounds to car chassis. The sound inputs to your amp. either by RCA cables or high speaker level input. That depends on your amps. set up. If you have any questions, post back and I'll try to reply by next day or two.

I just installed a new deck but no sounds or feedback from speakers what am I missing

You need to answer a few questions first. Do you have a factory or aftermarket amp? Did you use tape or crimps to attach the harnesses together? Did you use the proper harness? Is the head unit new or used? Check the fuse(s) in the back of the head unit. Then check your wire connections. Check that they are hooked up to the right colors and they are solid.

I have my amp and and subs hooked up right but i have multiple component wires on the back of my vm 9412. i need to know what to hook my component wires to in the back of my head unit and also need to know...

If you are running your speakers/subs from an external amp, then you wouldn't use any of the wires in the back. Usually you don't have any type of menu to change to make anything work. Some units have the ability to turn the signal off to the amp. What color are the wires in the back that you have remaining?

My 1995 chevysuberban has no speakers and would like to know how to wier the speakers in my car?

The car is not important .Connecting speakers to any unit is basically the same. there should be a color coded wire harness connected to your head unit. The speakers are as such: White & White with black stripe (Front Left) Grey & Grey with black stripe (Front Right) Green & Green with black stripe (Rear Left) Purple & Purple with black stripe (Rear Right) The Solid colors are (+) Positive and the Stripes are (-) Negative. Connecting any one of these incorrectly will result in phasing problems. Hope this helps. dreamsystems

Pioneer amp and sub problems

That's a 4-channel amp, not a 2-channel, which makes me wonder exactly how you have it hooked up to your sub. Is the LED light on the amp coming on? How many subs do you have hooked up to it, and how is it wired?
