Question about Pioneer GM-X522 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

My Pioneer GMX552 Seems to have been hooked up properly, with power and the speakers have power to them. The RCA pin are connected, however I am not receiving any sound. Can I get a list of troubleshooting options or something? I am going to attempt to hotwire my RCA pins to the circuit as I think there may be a fautly connection. Thanks

    I had a fine fuse, a 6 gauge wire running straight from my positive battery. I had my remote hooked to my ignition wire for my stereo, and in doubt I bridged my remote/ battery terminals together. I used a fine speaker bridged, non bridged, but to no avail. I had a previous amp connected and I just swapped the wires so all other connections were solid. Thanks

I doubt its the rca cable. check the connections from the back of the head unit, also check that you didnt blow any fuses either from the wire from the battery or on the amp also check the remote wire (little blue wire) and make sure its grounded really well

No sound out of left channel pioneer vsx1123k


Make sure that you have analogue stereo sources (red & white phono/RCA) connected to any input that you want to have routed to Zone 2.

Check your speaker connections for Zone 2: Correct sockets, and make sure the wires are connected properly and there's no little strands bridging between the black and red terminals on the amp or at the speaker ends.

That's about it.

If there's no sound on one channel then it's most likely to be either a bad speaker/speaker cable connection, or a broken source cable. Try the FM/AM radio (hook up an aerial temporary). That'll be guaranteed to be either stereo or at least dual mono so both channels should work.

How do I hook up a powered subwoofer to a pioneer sx-316?


Many subwoofers accept both line level (RCA jacks) and amplified inputs (+ and - speaker terminals). The Pioneer SX-316 does not offer line level output, only amplified outputs via the PURPLE + and - speaker terminals. This means that in order to use any subwoofer with an SX-316, the sub woofer will need to accept a + and - speaker wire connections for input Your manual speaker connections are on page 11 of the manual which can be found here: http://www.manualslib.com/manual/260358/Pioneer-Sx-316-S.html#manual

Starting at the rear of the SX-316; run a speaker wire from the PURPLE + and - terminal (SUBWOOFER) to the + and - speaker input terminals on the subwoofer. See your subwoofer manual or experiment (at your own risk) with connecting the speaker wire from the SX-316 to the subwoofer's + and - LEFT only, RIGHT only or BOTH left and right speaker inputs. Do not connect wires from the SX-316 to the speaker OUTPUT terminals of your subwoofer.

Finally, adjust any variable low pass filter knob or setting on the subwoofer to the lowest frequency that your main speakers are capable of producing. If you're not sure what that value is, try setting the subwoofer to 100Hz and judge how it blends with the main speakers. If it seems a little too bass heavy and thick then reduce the setting to 80Hz. On the other hand, if the sound seems to be slightly thin and lacking weight, try increasing the setting to 120Hz. By careful listening and a bit of patience you will be able to get the sound to seem balanced and well blended.

Good luck!

Power but no sound help plz....


well here we go how do you have your pioneer radio connected .
did you run the radio speaker wire out to the factory speaker or did you have an amp connected to the rca output jacks.

1 well if the radio connect by the speaker wire out the
output chip in the radio is fried and needs repair ....

2. if u have a amp connected to power your speakers for sound
check the amp to make sure you have power and no lose connection or speaker wires disconnected.
3. it also possible that the rca jacks are fried too


I no by experience that pioneer loses ground on the audio output jack (rca) well what we did to fix it is..
take and 18 gauge wire stripe back about 1/2" to 1" of the insulation to expose the copper wire and wrap this around the metal casing of the rca jacks and then ground the wire to a ground point do this for both left and right rca jacks...

How do you hook up speakers on pioneer tuner f-9


You cannot hook up speakers to the F-9 directly because is has no built in amplifier. It has only a preamplifier out. You will have to hook up this F9 tuner to an Amplifier's Tuner/Aux input using a RCA cable. The Amplifier out should be connected to the speakers and when you select the appropriate input on the Amp you will hear your Tuner sound.

How can i test my rca output jacks with a test light? pioneer deh p3100ub. hooked up spkr, nothing. tried one rca plug to white(lt) and then red(rt). Unit has 4 rca jacks, 2 for subwfr and 2 for front...


:) the rca jacks have to be connected to an amplifier,, their signal is too lay to even light a bulb.. you have to connect it to a car amplifier and then from the amplifier to the speakers..

Just so you'd know,, once your deck plays and you hear music on your speakers through your normal speaker wires,, RCA jacks work..

Ok you have 4 jacks,, 2 subs and 2 front.. These should connect to a preamp,, which takes 4 inputs and allows you to equalize or adjust how the music should sound,, now from the pre-amp,, it runs to an amplifier,, thats powers the subs and another that powers the speakers.. Some amps have 4 inputs so you can use one amp for your subs mids and heights..

for example a basic music system is

1 cd player
1 pre amp
1 amplifier (4 inputs, 4 channel out)

you bridge 1+2 and connect this to 1 12" double coil sub woofer

the next 2 connect to 2 mid speakers example "rockford or ev 5 / 8 " and 2 tweeters for heights..

Thats a kicking tricked out basic car audio system,,,

Hope that helps you understand how it works..

Power Acoustik PWM-16 Equalizer Help


You should be able to use your RCA output (Line Out) from your Pioneer to the input of your PWM-16. Then take the PMW output to an amplifier and then to your speakers. Your EQ only uses RCA's so an amplifier after
it would really bring the sound to life. The amp need not be huge as you have an output for subs also. You could try a line converter to change the RCA lines to speaker wire connections. Not sure if the output would be enough to power a speaker but it's worth a try.

No Audio when disconnect from external amp and hook to speakers


In a radio like your Pioneer and all similar units there are always a pre-amp circuit that feeds a power amp circuit,In some players there are more than one pre-amp circiuts. It is possible and highly probable that the power amp circuit in your Pioneer is shorted, so you still get some audio output , but very little. I believe this is your problem and I suggest that you bring it to a repair shop for an estimate or replace the unit. Good luck and please rate this answer, Thanks.

Emits a loud hum or rumble sound.


This problem is usually because of grounding.

If you look at the power lead, you will notice it is the regular "kettle plug" shape, but it only has two pins (live and neutral). There is no earth connector.

You have to ground the sub to your receiver. This is done by running a RCA connector connected to one of the unused connections to the amp.

However, this doesnt ALWAYS solve your problem. As in my case. I have a Pioneer 7.1 receiver, which is ALSO not grounded. so running a spare RCA cable has no effect. What I have done is wired a RCA connecter to a copper cable and connected the other end to the Earth pin on a 3 prong plug. This is plugged in to a wall socket, thus grounding the sub.

It's not a solution the manufacturer will suggest, but it seems to work for me.
