I purchased the outlaw 5000,I have the pioneer sc95 receiver. Running my front channels I have a emotive bass x 300. The sc 95 has two 12 volt remote triggers. Emotive is hooked up to one and I hooked the outlaw up to the other, doesn't work. I flipped the switch in the back of the outlaw for trigger and still didn't work. I even tried using the output 12 volt on the emotive and still didn't work. I noticed if the switch is set to trigger when I turn on the amp no sound out of the speakers it is connected to. I have to flip the switch to manual for speakers to work any ideas? Other than this amp works great, definitely can tell the difference in the speakers that are connected to it.
Are you using the correct trigger wire? Some mini plug cable terminators are stereo and some are mono. That could be one reason. If this happens to be it, there are male-to-female converters that can be purchased.
