Use a line level converter... purchased for around 20 bucks at any car audio store...will come with instructions....converts speaker leads to rca jacks...and they work real well

Tip

How To Diagnose No Sound Output From Your Vehicle Stereo


  1. Check each Subwoofer or Speaker that isn’t working for continuity - At the subwoofer or speaker, one at a time, test the terminals for Continuity using your Digital Multi-Meter; if your DMM doesn't have a Continuity test, use the Resistance, or Ohms, test and check for Resistance in the Subwoofer Coil (be sure to disconnect the subwoofer wiring before performing these tests).
  2. If they test out good, hook the wires back up and test the terminals at the terminal cup or at the Amp hookup if you didn’t use a terminal, don't hook it up to the amp yet. Sometimes the wiring inside the box can be a problem if it has come loose, or isn't making a great connection.
  3. If you have a Sub or multiple Subs with Dual Voice Coils, or multiple Subs with Single Voice Coils, make sure your wiring is correct by checking here: http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp
  4. Make sure there are no Hi-Pass filters, crossovers, or multi Channel switches enabled.
  5. Replace your RCA cable/s with known working RCA cable/s from the Source/Head Unit to the Amplifier/s.
  6. Check your Head Unit settings; make sure the Bass is turned up and/or the Subwoofer setting is turned On.
  7. If you are still getting no output, try plugging in an MP3 player or CD player using a headphone to RCA adaptor and check for sound output. If there is still no output, your Amplifier outputs are probably burned out.

Have mex bt2600 sony xplode car cd player ::: also have sony xplode amp model no.xm 754sx problem is i want to hook up a subwoofer and the amp to the head unit (also currently have 2 sony xplode 3ways...


If the Sony front end unit (stereo) has RCA jacks (Left and Right) in the back it's an input to the Xplode amp. If that's right then the Subwoofer putputs should plug or wire into the Xplode amp. I haven't hooked these up for some time but try a search on Youtube with the units you describe I'm more than 90% sure that there are videos there.

You shouldn't have to buy y connectors. The sub output on the back of the sony head unit is for bass output that goes to an amplifier & then to a sub. The RCA's on the harness will be just for Stereo sound ( left & right ).

Factory subwoofer 2005 subaru, the after market head unit I got dont have the connectors for it.


try to get a "speakerwire to rca cable" connector. hook it into your back speaker wire and run your amp off of that. then hook the sub up to the amp as usual. without an amp, just splice into your closest speaker wire

Have one wire for audio sub out, but two input ports to amp


This one Wire should be for the +. Try connecting the + to the Head Unit and - to a Common Ground. At the Worst, You will Blow the Amp Fuse if not Correct. The Lead from the Head Unit is Only an Off and On from the Ignition. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Subwoofer.......


Please check your model number, I can not find it on the JVC service website.

This is a powered sub-woofer I think. You need to have a thick black cord that connects the sub to the head unit. Then the satellite speakers get connected to the speaker jacks on the sub-woofer box. The sub-woofer should also be plugged into an A/C outlet on the wall.

The speaker outputs are labeled right there where you connect the speaker wires. You should see a red and black connector for each speaker and they are labeled "front right" "front left" "center" "rear right" "rear left".

If you do not have the thick black cord you need to connect the head unit with the sub-woofer, you can not use this system.

If you look at the head unit and give me the model number on it, I may be able to find the part you need. But I must have a good model number to work with, preferably from the head unit.
