Re: soundstream300 amp how do I hook it up to my...
That depends on which wires you are referring to. High level inputs or low level (RCA) outputs? If you are thinking about trying to wire the amp up to your Pioneer direct, ie; running the power and ground off of the factory harness, think again, you'll fry your electrical system. You need to run a seperate power kit (8 gauge minimum; 4 gauge pref), then run RCA's from the line level outputs on the Pioneer. If you are planning to run a sub with the Soundstream then run your RCA's from the Pioneer's sub output. Let me know if I can help you any further.

If this is new out of box make sure you have 12volts to the amp turn on wire. You should have constant 12volt + to the battery terminal 12volt- to the ground and 12volt + from the head unit (radio) to the amp The turn on wire on most car stereos is a thin blue wire. run this wire to the amp's terminal and when you turn on the radio the amp should turn on.
GET RED POS+ LONG WIRE 2 BATTERY 2 WERE UR AMP IS GANA GO CONECT IT TO THE AMP POS+ (2)GET NEG- WIRE CONECT 2 WERE THE NEG- IS ON THE AMP THEN THE OTHER END OF SAME NEG- WIRE FIND PLACE NEXT 2 AMP WERE U COULD SCREW NEG- TO CAR METL CLOSE 2 AMP (3)GET LONG REMOTE ANT. WIRE CONECT IT TO WERE THE REMOTE ANT CONECTION IS ON AMP THEN SEND IT TO UR PIONEER IS AND FIND REMOTE ANT . ON UR PIONEER HEAD AND CONECT IT SO IT SHOULD BE CONECTED TO UR AMP LAST PART GET THE LONG RC PLUUGS AND CONECT TO UR AMP THEN RUN THEM TO UR PIONEER HEAD WERE THE RC PLLUGS INPUT IS THEN IT SHUD BE DONE!!!
that should be connected to the blue wire of the head unit (the remote/accessory/turn-on wire).
IF you connect this to power, then you will have the amp oin all the time, even if the car is not running. This will drain the battery. The system control input accepts a 12V control signal from the source to turn the amp/eq/power-ant on.
hi there. ill start with the wiring. you should have a blue remote lead going to the back of your head unit, the power cable running straight from the amp to the battry, the earth should be earthed in a fairly decent place, any metal inside the car realy, and then your wires pos and neg from the amp to the subs. the reason why the kenwood might not have much base on it is to my knowledge, there should be a switch somewhere on the amp that will increase or decrease the power input for the speakers, if this is set very low then hense why theres not much base comming from them. if the amp is on and its giving something to the subs it probably isnt the wiring. try checking the amp for the switch first, if you cant find it try the pioneer amp and see if theres any diference. dont hesitate to contact me if you get stuck
Run one set of RCA lines from
head unit to amps if you only have one set of pre-outs on the head
unit, then at the amps, use an electronic crossover to split between
the two amps, and this will also allow you to control what frequencies
go to which amps/speakers. You should use one amp for the speakers and the higher power amp for the subwoofer. You should not try to connect both to the subwoofer. Use 4gauge cables if possible. If you have more questions, just ask.
