You can use what is called a line level converter, which taps into your speakers to convert the signal to rca cables. that is about all i can think of since i don't know the model number of the cd player

NO BASS!!


1) Check the Subwoofer for continuity - At the subwoofer, 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 or low 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 or low output, your Amplifier outputs are probably burned out.

Cant get no sound


Try a different input source. I have had this happen before and the easiest way to diagnose the root of the problem was to take a home CD player out to my car and use the outputs to power the amp. If the amp works, move upstream to the RCA wires (unplug them from the back of your head unit and plug them into the home CD player). If that works, you know the stereo isn't putting out a signal. Good luck!!

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.

Right side speakers don't work


if you are using RCAs as inputs to your amp.Swap the R to L @ RCAs to see if its comming in okay from radio.If both RCAs have audio then amp is bad ,If amp has any type of switches , move swithces to see if it comes back .Also if both RCAs inputs have audio .Move the RCAs when connected on amp to see if amp has bad connection in board to RCA jacks..If audio comes back on bad side when jack is moves .Then you have bad solder joints on board..If not then you must have bad outputs on amp..

Well i need help with my amp./


If the amplifier doesn't have speaker level inputs, you will need to use a Line Output Converter (LOC) to convert the speaker level signal to a preamp level signal.

How do i know if my amp is blown


Hey Yoo,

 

Go to Radio shack and get you an adapter that will take an earphone jack and convert it to RCA male.  You use this to simulate the signal coming from the reciever.  Hook up to a Cd player or Walkman, anything with an earphone output jack. Test that the device actually puts out music or anything worth listening to.  Connect the device to the input of your amp, with the car running, and the reciever turned on.. This will tell yo if the signal is getting from the reciever to the amp. You may not be getting signal from the head unit. 

If you still get no sound to the woofers, dsisconnect the woofers and try a different speaker.  If that speaker dont work,  Change setting and switches., and if you still get no sound, then your amp is toast.

Wireing


I believe that this model Sony amp includes High Level inputs. Those allow you to connect the normal speaker wires coming out of the factory stereo to the amp. If for some reason it doesn't include the inputs you can buy a high level to low lever converter that will give you rca from the factory unit.

My brand new system isnt working right...


All righty then, This is most often gaused by bad grounds. Make certain the ground of the amp is a solid clean connection. The best place is under one of the rear seatbelt bolts, next check the condition of the ground at the battery this has to be clean with a good connection to the chasis, third make sure the Head Unit also ahs a clean positive ground. If these do not yeild results then get hold of any littel portable radio, cassette player, mp3 player as long as it has a earphone jack. Get one of those cables that have a earphone plug on one end and RCA plugs on the other. Disconnect the RCA's from the HU and hook up the player. Power up the system and play back from your portable player, mess with the gain on the amp and see if you still have the same problem when playing back from the portable device. If the problem goes away then you probably have blown grounds on the RCA's on the head unit and only a repair shop can fix that or a new HU. If you still have the problem with the portable player then adjust your lowpass filters and cut off to a higher frequency until the problem goes away. The gain on these amps should never be used to make up for low output from the Head Unit. (another cause for this condition) Get a HU that has 4 to 6 volt sub outputs and crank the gain down on the amp. That gain control is to control distortion (over driving the amp) not to make it louder. If you want louder then go for the HU with the higher sub output voltage or go with a SUB with a lower ohm rating. Your amp is stable down to 1 ohm. Oh and double check if you have your subs wired correctly improper wiring at the subs can m ake this problem worse.
