So you have an EQ and a Pioneer amp you're trying to hook up to each other? And only some Stinger RCA cable works? And when the lightning audio RCA cable is hooked up, it doesn't turn on? The amp isn't grounding itself through the RCA cables, is it? Check your ground wire and make sure it has a clean contact that's free of rust or any paint that might be in the way. Otherwise, the RCA cables should have nothing to do with an amp turning on or not.

No sub woofer output or very little

Your sub amplifier is detecting an overdrive condition and reducing volume to prevent the output stage from burning up. When reduced volume doesn't work, output is cut completely for 10 minutes until things have cooled down.

Bass Guitar Keeps sound keeps cutting in and out.

There is an inconsistency in your text. You indicate that cables were swapped and problem still existed...
You said:... "i have tried using it on a different amp and still fine".

If you tried it on a different amp and it was still fine then the guitar is probably OK.

THEN your amplifier is in question as the root of your problem.

What is the amp you have? The guitar is the CB-42, but what amp do you have?

MANY intermittent problems with amplifiers are often with the input jack itself. These jacks are easily broken by tripping over a cable plugged into them.

Bare wire sub to single RCA jack receiver

Yes you can modify RCA cables to make bare wire tails.
If the unit has a sub o/p then you just connect up your sub bass unit to whatever the amp needs.

An RCA cable is 2 wire which is all you would normally need for sub bass speaker level signal.
It may be a good idea to eventually upgrade the wire size if you want really good sub bass as lower frequencies draw more current and so require more copper.

Please let me know if this any help, thanks for using FixYa.

Noise in my car amp.

sounds like you have a bad ground going to your rca's. try running a wire from ground to the shield of your rcas and see if the noise goes away.

I plugged int he rca's but he the lowest sounding bass possibe

kicker subs arnt ment to hit the lowest bass, unless you go spend a **** load of money, im talking 3000 wat amp, ant some 15' or bigger subs. the most commen kickers are 12' subs, so im asuming you have 12' subs, if not, this (said lightly) should work. try turning the bass boost screw on the amp to the middle of its turning range. this will offer the greatest balance between high and low bass. if you want more low bass, turn it past half. if you want more high bass, turn it down. i have mine set to mid range, but i also recently purchased 2 18' kickers. with every new set of subs, you should spend at least 15 min tuning the amp to get the best performance. every sub is different. hope this helps, good luck.

Does it blow the fuse if you disconnect the RCA cables and disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp?

Does it only blow the fuse after the head unit is switched on (only after remote voltage is applied to the amp)?

Amp cuts off

You may have a problem with the power source feeding the amp. You need to check the voltage across the amplifier's B+ and ground terminals when the amp is playing/cutting off. If it's dropping below ~11 volts, you need to determine why it's dropping so low.

The Amp stays on because you have a constant 12V to the Remote.
If your stereo remote is no longer working then run a wire from a 12 volt source that turns on and off with your ignition something like your radio fuse in the vehicle fuse box.
As far as the Bass Knob if it is connected properly and still not working check the line for wire kinks or cuts that may have happened during installation if you cant find any problems you can get a universal bass knob that plugs via your RCA cables for under 20 bucks.
Hope this gives u some ideas.

No bass at higher volume

Your battery should be fine! Although the amp might not be strong enough for the sub. All you can do is check the RCA cables from your radio to your amp as these might vibrate loose when you get to 17 volume and also check the monster cable from your amp to your sub asit might have vibrated loose as well.
