    Newb wiring help! (Alpine KTP-445 to Pioneer 4300DVD harness)

    I'm in the process of wiring up my Pioneer 4300DVD to my 2007 Silversdo. In between I am adding an Alpine mini amp (KTP-445). I have a few loose wires and would love some help on where they go.

    From the Pioneer harness I have 2 loose wires. Mute and reverse gear sensor. Do these need to be connected anywhere or left alone? There was nowhere to connect them to the mini-amp harness.

    Out from the Alpine mini-amp I have 3 loose wires with nowhere to run them to the factory harness. Pink wire, solid blue (power ant?), and a yellow/blue wire (which I attached to the park break coming out of the Pioneer harness but don't know where it goes into the factory hook-up).

    ANY help would be great. I would love to get this thing installed within the next few days.

    Oh,and if you need more power,buy a real amp.your wiring is all jacked up,and dont connect where you connected it.

    It's not solely for Alpine units, can be interchanged to any aftermarket head unit.

    Thought I would get some real help but I guess not. Thanks anyway though.

    Oh I'm not mad at all but "You don't need this, get that" crap isn't helping.

    I'm trying to get all my wiring straightened out before I install the unit so I haven't pulled the dash yet. Guess I should just give it a try and see what happens. Just trying to do it right the first time. Thanks man.

    ok,well you dont need the mute or reverse,since you dont have the bluetooth or backup cam.leave them unattached...
    just looked up the alpine and cant find any codes..
    Are you using it with this?...Alpine 9881 - ID CXS64 comps - JL HD900/5 & 12W6V2
    Are you using the speaker leads to run a signal to the power pack?its not a good idea to amplify an amplifier...meaning running alot of watts into an amp.
    might want to give more info of how your running this...

    the 4300 is already 50x4 peak,probably just as,or almost as loud as the power pack,running both wont give you "100 watts per channel".

    so again,are you running the pioneer to the pack,then to the speakers?

    diconnect the wire on the parking brake input on the 4300,thats for watching the dvd's.

    Ok, Not using it with anything Alpine, ID or JL. Sorry, that was an old sig.

    My goal is to use the power pack to power the fronts and rears instead of the actual Pioneer 4300DVD. The power coming out of this unit is true 50x4 RMS instead of the 18x4 RMS or so coming from the Pioneer. Trust me, it sounds great compared to aftermarket head unit RMS power and is a heck of a lot easier than running a separate amp mounted somewhere other than behind the dash.

    I see what you are saying though, I don't want to "double" my power from the Pioneer. Just want to use the alpine it instead.

    Yes, pioneer to the pack, then to the speakers.

    Thanks (for real) this time
