The "Front output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the "Main In" on the Clarion EQ. I'm assuming that your Clarion EQ can only deal with one input, and will send the adjusted (equalized) signal out both of the outputs.
The "Front output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Front Input" on the 4 channel amp.
The "Rear output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Rear Input" on the 4 channel amp.
The "Sub output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the Left/Right Input on the Epicenter. The Left/Right Output on the Epicenter would need a Y-splitter for each side, so that you could connect each amp separately. One suggestion would be to use one sub amp for both subs.

I need the wiring colour codes for 2002 santa fe car stereo


Hi,



Basically the wiring of the large harness corresponds to the pins like this.

Starting in the upper right hand corner and working down the right side from A12 down to A1.

1=Left rear output-red
2=Left rear output-blue
3=Right rear output-black
4=Right rear output-yellow
5=empty
6=Left front input-black
7=Left front input-yellow
8=Left rear input-orange
9=Left rear input-green
10=Amp 'ON'-blue&orange
11=empty
12=Amp sensor-black&orange

Back up to upper left hand corner on the large plug

13=Right front tweeter output-red
14=Right front tweeter output-blue
15=Left front tweet output-red
16=Left front tweeter output-blue
17=empty
18=Right front input-red
19=Right front input-white
20=Right rear input-blue
21=Right rear input-red
23=Right front sub (+) output-yellow
24=Right front sub (-) output-black

The small harness is the same above with the upper right position being pin 1 going down to pin 4 then back up to the top for pin 5 down to pin 8.

1=Memory Power-Lrg White
2=Amp Ground- Lrg Black
3=Left front sub (+)output-yellow
4=Left front sub (-) output-black

When I hook up the speakers in the back to the left and right side for the in and out, do I connect the front or rear speakers. do the speakers connect to the subwoofer first then to my receiver or the...


I was trying to find an owner's manual or picture of the rear panel of the sub, but had no luck. The subwoofer is a powered type - or "active" speaker. This means it has a built in amplifier. These active subs usually provide for one or both "low level" and "high level" inputs. Low level signals are usually carried by shielded coaxial cables and have RCA type plugs on the end. The low level is also called "line level". This is an un-amplified signal that might be heard on cheap earphones - but that's about it. It is similar to the output of a tape deck, DVD or phonograph. These signals require an amplifier to be heard. If you have a sub woofer output on your receiver or amplifier, you could run a patch cable between the low level input on the subwoofer and the subwoofer output of the amp or receiver. You receiver or amp may call this output "low frequency effects" or similar. The front and rear speakers would then connect directly to the receiver or amp's corresponding connections.

If you lack low level outputs on the amp or subwoofer, you'll need to run speaker wires from the amplifier or receiver's front left and right speaker output terminals to the subwoofer's high level input terminals. High level signals are speaker connections or amplified signals. These are typically connections that accept bare wire connections. The front speakers would then connect to the subwoofer's front left and right speaker output terminals. The rear speakers connect to the amplifier.

I hope this helps - and good luck!

I want to hook up subs and a amp in a 2008 saturn vue how do i do it


If you are planning on using the factory stereo you will need a line level converter. You basically connect two of your speaker channels to the line level converter. That in turn will give you a line level out (RCA cables) That line level out can be fed to a two channel amp which would be where your subs would hook up to. If you do this however you will lose two channels of mid range and highs ( your rear speakers ). Downfall to this approach is that some line level converters are susceptible to alternator noise.

If you have an aftermarket deck this will be much more simple. You simply run your RCA outputs from your deck to your external amplifier. Aftermarket decks typically have front rear and subwoofer outputs. That means you can drive a four channel amp for your front and rear and a two channel amp for your subwoofer. This is the recommended way to go.
For hookups I just suggest buying an amp kit that is comparable in power rating to your amp. If you buy a 500watt amp make sure your wiring kit can handle at least 500 watts.

There are no RCA recivers on the rear of the deck. I am trying to hook up sub woofers, and not sure how to get sound to them. Can you help? Maybe there is a cable that converts to connect the two. I also...


you could convert the front or rear speaker wires to rca at the amp. by soldering on the rca plugs.if you converted the fronts then the front speakers would no longer work as you were taking the feed for them to the subs.

Have one wire for audio sub out, but two input ports to amp


This one Wire should be for the +. Try connecting the + to the Head Unit and - to a Common Ground. At the Worst, You will Blow the Amp Fuse if not Correct. The Lead from the Head Unit is Only an Off and On from the Ignition. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

I have a kenwood head unit with 3 rca outputs,front,rear and sub.my crossover is a kicker kx3 and it only has front and rear in and front,rear and sub out.my question is how do i hook up the crossover...


No. I would recomend running front and rear to the crossover. Use the sub out on the deck so you have total control of subwoofer output at your fingertips. Your deck should have at LEAST an 80hz crossover built in. Any further fine tuning can be done at the sub amp.

DEH-P360 Won't output to rear channels/Sub


Make sure that the FIE (front image enhancement) is off. If it is on, the rear outputs are muted.

Wiring question


Hi, If I got the specs right, your amp is a 4 channel hence the 4 RCA inputs. Probably the simplest would be to feed the 2 X RCA out of the deck to the 1 & 2 RCA in of the amp. This amp has also a line out, feed the amp's lineout back to the 3 & 4 in. This way, all four channels get same input from the deck and you will have identical power to all 4 speakers (front & rear). An afterthought is to also use the 4 outputs of the deck (since they are there anyway and it is not a good tech practice to leave outputs without load/speakers) and connect 4 mid-range or 4 smaller speakers. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
