The wires for your head units are red for positive, black for negative, yellow or green for antenna, and the others are for speakers.

.i installed a radio in


The wire that was for the alarm was a single wire that was grounded to the radio chasis, its a different color for 80's to 90's but if you know the one you took off to the old deck then just ground it somewhere on the outside of the new deck and you will be set.

Found your profile in yahoo.answers, hope you don't mind me asking you a question. I have a 2010 Altima 3.5SR with the Bose audio "premium" sound package. There's a Bose amp mounted on the rear...



  • Don't tap into any wire going to the amp. Run the desired new amp strait to the battery. Ground it to a bolt in the trunk. Get into the dash and find a wire to use for your remote wire for the new amp (power when key is on and no power when key is off.) Then run the new amp to an AV output in the back of your deck. If your just gonna add some bump to your trunk and not do a complete system overhaul then leave the current as is and just add on to it as I explained. Will definitely be loud.

I dont know how to hook it up


2 grey 2 green and 2 purles are speaker outputs. one of each color should have a black line. thats usually the speaker negative. blue is remote power out to connect to remote power to amp. red is 12 volt power(+). black is power ground (-) yellow is switched power from fuse block.

I need to connect my remote wire to a accessory wire but i dont know which one is the accessory wire. I dont have that light tester thing so I cant try it out. I heard you can just tap it with some fuse...


The accessory wire that you are looking for is the one that tells the head unit to turn on when you turn the key in car. If you have an aftermarket deck then the deck has it's own for the amp usually it is blue and in your case may not be connected to anything. If you don't have an aftermarket deck you will need to find a wiring diagram for the car radio harrness and it will be labeled. You dont want to use any random wire because if that wire always has power your amp will stay on and kill battery. You can wire a switch if you choose this method to prevent that from happening. You may also try running a wire from main power of amp to a small fuse (remote uses less than 2A) then to a switch and then back to remote screw of amp.
This website has wiring diagrams but colors dont always match. http://www.the12volt.com/ Good Luck

Deck turns off when i hit a bump in my car


A couple things...but the deck must come out to check. (assuming this is a 12v N.American car) If you cannot remove or you dont know how - take it to a car stero shop. Electrical fires are nasty!
  1. Make sure there are no open wires and connections are tight and taped (badly crimped connectors will hide loose connections)
  2. Make sure the deck is supported in the back-it should not wiggle around.
  3. There should be a wire firmly connected to the chassis of the car and the back chassis of the deck - Please do not drill into the deck - use an existing bolt !

No sound from new stereo


check the speakers in the rear deck, in the rear hatch or trunk, often the two wires that come out of the speaker touch if that happens it will short out the speaker drivers in the radio most times no permanant damage will occur. separate the wires so they do not touch,or touch the metal speker base, that may not be the problem but its a start..

My Dual amp wont put out power when deck is in aux or ipod modes.


my pioneer deck does the same thing its just that when in aux mode, it will not play loud enough, i have to turn it up all the way just to hear a little sound, and i really dont know y, but when in those mods, it usually doesnt put out sound on ur subwoofer or amp rca wired on back of ur deck, and usually they do, but the power is not large enough for ur amp to pick the frequency up from ur rca wire connections. that also has happened to me before, i just usually ignore it, and just burn an mp3 cd w like hundred songs, so i dont need a ipod or mp3 player for aux.

hope i was help :)

NO POWER TO MY DECK


wire it to the live wire most older cars don't have 6 wire config while nearly all new stereos do connect all other wires as they were on the loome but wire the ignition wire to your cars live bypassing the ignition

Auto amplifier installation


Does the new deck have a blue wire for remote and a blue/white wire also? The blue one is for a power antenna and shuts of when playing discs or axillary inputs. The blue/white is for power amplifiers and stays on when the deck is on. Also be sure the remote wire that goes to the amp is not pinched and grounded out to the frame of the car. Let me know, and be sure to leave feedback or I don't get paid.

Jensen LXA400


I have this same amplifier. I have noticed several ways it will "not work" during my ownership of it. I have it connected to a seperate battery to save my alternator, battery, etc as it is a power hungry beast for how low the output wattage is. Test the input voltage to see if you have enough, one way to see this is to check the "jensen" emblem that lights up. If you dont have enough power it will appear dim and only the right side lights up. Also the amplifier will not work if your speakers are "blown" even a little bit. Ive taken speakers that wont work on my lxa400 and connected them to a higher power amp and they will work (although they will sound horrible) If youre smart you will keep the gain under 3/4 on this amp, I see some people have found out the hard way that full gain fries the amplifier circuitry. Not an expert on electronics but it smells somewhat like melting glue or plastic. Ive noticed a lot of people have problems with the RCA jacks as well. There are 8 jacks, in two clusters. The first one is A+B and the second is C+D. Note: You do not NEED Y connectors on this amp! Connect your output rcas from the deck to top left and bottom left jacks of the left cluster. This will give you left and right (a+b) output from the first set of speaker outs. Then connect an rca patch cord from the top right and bottom right jacks of the first cluster and connect the other end to the top left and bottom left of the second cluster. This will give you output from the second set of speaker outs. Remember that this is in 4 channel mode. I dont remember the set ups for 3 channel but two channel I believe is the left deck rca goes to top left of the first cluster and the right deck rca goes to the top left of the second cluster. Then you just wire the speaker outs according to the picture on the amplifier. something like this: _________________________ |(+) - (-) +| ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Speaker + goes to (+) and speaker - goes to (-) Also addressing another issue if you want to increase the wattage to your speakers you just use a lower resistance speaker (2ohm instead of 4) I would not recommend using anything over 4 ohms. As for the high level inputs, I dont recommend using them unless you have the plugs that go with them, its a lot easier to wire your deck rears to a line converter (changes straight speaker wire to RCA jacks) or to just buy a new deck with RCA outs. Last item, common knowledge: 400 watts does NOT mean 400 watts!!! This amplifier puts out very little actual wattage (50 or 83 per channel depending on the load) Hope all this helps someone out there.. Anyone who knows the 3 channel setups I would appreciate it.
