Question about Alpine CVA-1004 Car DVD Player

2 Answers

Alpine CVA-1004 I'm installing a cva-1004 head unit in a 2001 suburban and wasn't sure if it would play through factory amp so I hooked up head unit directly to a speaker and hooked up pwr (red) acc (yellow) blk (grnd) etc. The unit powers up and finds station but I can't seem to get any sound to speakers.

Re: Alpine CVA-1004

Lol i had the exact problem that you are having with my alpine. The solution is taking the blue cord that was inside the vehicle (forgot what cord it was) and actually connecting it with the other blue cord thats different makes the factory amp read the cd player and ta-da it works. crazy isn't it

you have the amp remote wire hooked to the power antenna lead instead of the amp wire on the deck otherwise just hook it to a switched +12 volt source. You sure you got a DVD changer instead of just a cd changer

Ipod input?

I've got an Alpine CVA1004 and use my ipod on the aux input of the headunit. The alpine-ipod interface was too confusing for me, with the ipod connected to the aux input, I just control the music from the Ipod, I find it easier that way.
