Re: wiring my car stereo
This is not something that can be done here. It's too complex. The best solution would be to learn how all of this works. From then on, you will not need a diagram. The following site covers virtually everything you'll need to know.
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.
- Better answers use proper spelling and grammar.
- Provide details, support with references or personal experience.

One thing to remember about most radios, the RCA pre amp circuit will still work even if the mosfet power amp inside the radio does not. The best way to know if the amp inside the radio works is to use one matching color pair coming off the radio to wire up a random speaker right to the radio. You can use just about any old random 4 ohm speaker that is laying around to check it. The best solution if the amp inside the radio is blown is to replace the radio or amp the pre amp outputs with a small 4 channel amp. Oh, by the way. What vehicle are you connecting this into? And does the vehicle say Bose, Infinity, or ect sound or Premium sound? These usually denote a factory amplifyer already onboard and requires special connections to get the signal to these amps to then be delivered to the speakers.
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?
1) Understand the basics of all car stereo systems. A car stereo system consists of 4 main components and the wiring that connects them. These are the head unit, the main speakers, optional amplifiers and the subwoofers, which are also optional but generally considered a necessary part of any good system.
2) Know that the core of any car stereo is the head unit, which is the cassette or CD player that goes in the dash. All the other components are connected to the head unit by at least one pair of wires.
3) Know about car speakers. The main speakers are usually 2 in the front and 2 in the back, although with what are known as component speakers, each speaker is broken down into two speakers: one for the highs and one for the bass. Each speaker or speaker set (known as a channel) connects to the head unit via a pair of wires. Generally if you are installing a new head unit you want to install new speakers.
4) Know about amplifiers. Amplifiers provide extra power to your speakers and/or extra channels of power for additional speakers. The most common use for an amplifier (amp) is to power subwoofers. The amp connects to your head unit via an RCA cable and often a "remote on" wire, and also connects directly to your car battery through a fused "hot" wire and to the car's chassis with a short ground wire. This article assumes the use of a single amplifier connected to a pair of subwoofers. If you do not have these components simply ignore the steps specific to the amp, doing so will not affect the rest of your installation.
5) Know about subwoofers. Subwoofers are part of any good stereo system. They provide the deep bass that small speakers cannot achieve. Subwoofers are connected to the amplifier which can usually be mounted right to the subwoofer box. If you do not have subwoofers you can simply ignore the steps specific to them.

This will help. Thanks please
keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for
Well you can please follow the below steps - 1. Disconnect your car battery. It is vitally important to your safety that you never work on any type of electronic in your car with the battery still connected, as this puts you at risk for electrocution. 2. Remove the old stereo by taking off all the dashboard panels surrounding your stereo, sliding out your old stereo head unit, and unplugging all the wires that are connected to the head unit. Discard the old stereo. 3. Take your Pioneer car stereo head unit and plug each of the positive wires from your car speakers to the positive terminals on the head unit. Take all of the negative speaker wires and connect them to the negative terminals on the head unit. 4. Attach the stereo's black ground wire to a metal bolt or screw located near where the stereo is mounted in the dash. 5. Connect all of the ignition power wires to your Pioneer stereo. 6. Take the harness connector and plug it into your car stereo. Now plug the antenna into the back of your head unit. 7. Slide the stereo back into the dash, screw it in place, and replace the dashboard pieces you removed earlier. 8. Reconnect your car battery, turn the car on and test out your new Pioneer car stereo. Please post comments for more help or information..........
A short or ground on the RCA cables or too high of an output level from the head unit could cause this. First, try it with the amp gain turned all the way down. Then, replace the cables with a known good pair. If the problem is still there, it's probably coming from the head unit. If there is another pair of preamp outputs, switch to them. If the problem still persists, I'd suspect the head unit.
Hi Robin, I think I may be able to help. The instructions are referring to an aftermarket stereo and not the factory one. Most aftermarket stereos have a blue wire that runs either the power antenna or an accessory that turns on with the radio(amp, eq, power crossover,ect.) As far as the RCA cables, once again, most aftermarket stereos have RCA outputs for an amplifier. Factory ones don't.You can go to Wal-Mart or ABC warehouse and buy a wire harness just for this particular application and then all you do is plug the harness into the factory harness, everything is all pre-wired so there is no guesswork involved and no mistakes.
crutchfield.com has a complete list of speaker sizes. Most car amps now have connections for RCA inputs and speaker-level too, so you can probably use the existing head unit: most OEM head units do NOT have RCA outputs.
First off, if you're using RCA preamp connections from the head unit to the amp, you don't need to put anything into the high level input connector. But if your head unit doesn't have RCA preamp outputs, then connect the front left to the white (+) and white/black stripped (-) wires and the front right to the grey (+) and grey/black stripped (-) wires. There is no need to connect the rear speaker outputs of the head unit to the high level input of the amp.
