Either the rcas arent outputting the audio signal or you have a bad se tof rcas. An amp is obiously not your issue in this case.

How do I hook up a sub woofer & speakers to my car stereo?


If you are replacing the existing door/deck speakers with replacements of the same size and not adding an amplifier, you will be able to use the existing wiring, making note of the positive and negative notation.
Subwoofers, on the other hand, require an amp. There are subs that have an integrated amp in the enclosure, otherwise you will need to buy a separate amp. Connecting the amp to your existing system will highly depend on what outputs your head unit (aka stereo) has. If it has pre-amp outputs, those can be run straight to sub amp. If there are not pre-amp outputs, you may have to buy a "high level" adapter that connects to the same head unit outputs as your speakers.

Wiring/sub-woofer not putting out!!


The remote wire from your head unit should be blue and there should be a wire that connects that to your amp. Make sure it is hooked up. Also, if you are using the high in put wiring up above, it shouldn't be mixed with your RCA. That wiring diagram is not needed for the subs. You should also check the gauge on you power wire that runs from the battery to the amp. If it is 4 or less it should be good if it is Copper Clad aluminum (CCA) it will put out power similar to 8 gauge copper wire. Most of the time the problem with the low output of subs is the amp wiring kit. You could have great subs and a great amp, but if the wire isn't any good it can sound like ****. Just FYI in case you weren't familiar with any of that. Always try to get pure copper wire when it comes to the power cable. You can google information about it. If you're wiring there is fine. Again, check the remote wires. Also check to see you have your amp levels turned up as well. As for the violet and violet/white. Those are referring to you speakers in your vehicle. Not your subs.

How to i install a Pioneer DEH-1250 to a Jensen 5500?I got these as a gift and its like confusing me.Please help me out and send me a diagram on the input wiring from the Pioneer player to the Jensen 5500-...


Hi, what you want to do is just connect the speaker wires from the head unit straight across to the pre-amp inputs of the amp. If you have a sub, also connect the pre-amp outputs of the head unit to the 2 sub inputs of the amp. Connect the blue wire of the head unit to the turn-on terminal of the amp and connect power wires to both units. May I ask what speakers are you using?

Sub woofers and amp


first of all is the amp a four way amp? if so then you need to know what the watts of the subs are (you dont want to melt them) wire + and - of channels 1 and 2 to one sub and + and - of channel 3 and 4 to second sub, nice thick lead from battery positive (fused) to positive terminal on amp thick lead from a good earth point to negative terminal on amp run a set of rca leads down the opposte side to the positive wire to prevent interference, run thin wire from remote wire of radio to the remote terminal of amp, rca's are plugged in at stereo and at the am. may need a RCA splitter to be able to power all four channels

Good luck Davelee
