So you want to keep the factory amp? I wouldn't suggest that. I'd recommend getting rid of the factory amp altogether, they're usually not the best, and it would be difficult - if not impossible - for them to work together. I google'd for a quick sanity check and I'll post a snippet from WikiAnswers: I wouldn't...first most after market amps require a ...

I believe it is fairly common place with aftermarket stereo systems. Look at this example from Crutchfield: I don't know much about them, other than that they exist. They do not in anyway modify your steering, just add a way to access controls at your fingertips.

My guess is it's fried. When you hook two batteries up in series (as you did), the resulting voltage is the sum of the battery voltages, so for a few seconds you had a 24V electrical system. I'm surprised the ECU didn't fall over as well, but perhaps it's better protected. Have you tried entering the unlock code? In my Audi, after I unhook the battery (or ...

Sounds like no amplification. I don't know hyundai and all but I had a similar problem with my volvo, they had a separate amp box that you had to have a special aftermarket harness to wire to to kick in the amp. Otherwise all you got was very faint tinny, no bass sound.

This may be because your speakers are wired out-of-phase ("+" to "+" on one speaker, and "+" to "-" on another. When this happens, the sound "cancels each other out" to some extent. To test this, adjust the fader and balance to isolate a single speaker (say, the front-left speaker) and see if the apparent volume increases.

From the manual: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/StaticFiles/Manuals/Car/DEH-X6500BT_OwnersManual112712.pdf Black to Ground Yellow to "always on" (battery, fuse protected) {saves memory} Red to ignition Blue/White to external amplifier (or insulated) Orange (optional) to park lights

You need to make sure that the head-unit is hooked up to constant power (usually the yellow wire on the harness). Make sure that it isn't hooked to a circuit that goes off after half an hour or when you open the door.
