How to Connect an Amplifier to a Pioneer Receiver


Pioneer Electronics, a Japanese company founded after World War II, has produced radio receivers, record players, tape players and CD players, among its broad line of products. Amplifiers allow you to have more control of your audio listening experience. Amplifiers take an electric audio signal and add more electricity to it; this allows the audio signal to be increased enough to provide power for your speakers. Amplifiers are common and vary in strength depending on the size of the speakers they need to power.

Things You'll Need

  • RCA cable
  • 2 speakers
  • Look behind your radio receiver and you will see two RCA outputs. They will be labeled "Output" and have an R and L above the jacks.

  • Search behind your amplifier for two sets of two RCA jacks. Two will be labeled Output and two will be labeled "Input."

  • Plug your RCA cable into the receiver output. Plug the other end of the cable into the amplifier input.

  • Look at your speakers. They will each have a wire coming out of the back with an RCA cable on the other end.

  • Set your speakers on opposing sides of your receiver.

  • Plug the speaker to your left into the amplifier output jack labeled "L." Plug the speaker to your right into the output jack labeled "R."

  • Turn on your receiver and amplifier. You should hear audio coming out of your speakers. You may need to adjust the volume on your amplifier.
