    I tried the search function but couldn't find anything.

    On the back of my head unit (Pioneer DEH 330) I couldn't see anything to hook up the remote turn on wire to, there was nothing labelled as remote turn on or power antenna. So what am I looking for on the HU, if anyone has pictures of what to look for it would be great.

    As an aside the amp I got is a MTX 4250D - it is supposed to be 250 watts at 12.5V, its really 338 watts at 12.5V according to the birth sheet. SWEEEEET!!!!!

    Do you have a solid blue or a blue/white wire off the radio not connected to anything?

    There was a blue wire that was part of a bundle of about 10 wires coming off the head unit, is this the one I want to splice into.

    I thought there would be a jack or something, that's what I was looking for.

    From memory (it's been awhile)

    From HU, you should have had:
    -pair of whites
    -pair of grays
    -pair of greens
    -pair of purples
    -single red
    -single black
    -single yellow
    -single orange (possibly)
    -single blue

    If this is what you have, the blue is going to be a 12V out.

    Blue is remote for the amp, as far as antenna, that should look somewhat like a 3/4" jack on the back of the HU

    There is no jack to hook up the remote wire to. You just have to use a 3-way splitter and connect your remote wire to the blue or blue and white wire going into the head unit.
