That is very strange but it could be that when you put the cd in the radio it maybe sending out a quick shot of amplified power I would try disconecting the subs put in a cd let it play a little then plug the subs in while the cd is playing and see if they work if this works you may to get a new radio or put in a switch to turn the subs off or some type of momentary circuit breaker I'm just trying to help I never saw anything like that before good luck........

When you put fader to rear theres no sound its a sony 6stack cd player sony6000


Check to make sure your wires are hooked up right. A good way to check your wires is to pull the cd player out. unhook - and + to right rear speaker. Touch the - and + to corresponding ends of a AA battery. Have someone in the trunk to see if the speaker moves. If it doesn't, replace your wire going back or maybe a bad speaker. if it does move and you hook it back to the cd player right, and there is still no sound...it is the cd player. Best of luck to you!

Jvc kd-g340 rear speakers not working. I recently bought the car with this unit installed. I noticed that there is a l/r cable, power, ground in the trunk which means there was probably a subwoofer...


check the wires in the back of the stereo if not then make sure the back speakers are not hooked up to a internal amp and if it is make sure that it is not blown

My 93 Boneville CD Player does not work, the radio works fine but it will not play CD's, also how would i install a set of speakers (subwoofers)


the cd player is bad and you can hook up subs through a rca hook up that you can hook to your speaker wires in the trunk the adapter is like 20 bucks at radio shack or local sound installer or buy an after market cd player cause yours will never work again and run rca's off the back of the radio to your trunk

My subwoofers will make no sound now


Go through the multiple menus of your head unit, and make sure the subwoofer setting is set to "yes".

Do you have the owner's manual for the unit? What make/model is the head unit?

I wanna hook an ..


Yes. Just run your RCA leads to the amp (after properly wiring it). You can use either the front of rear pre-out connections. If your amp has a built in crossover, Use the low-pass filter setting at around 60Hz.
A copy of the owner's manual can be found here if you need it:

Clarion dxz665mp cd player


I think you connect the wrong remote wire to the subwoofer amp.
This cd player it has 2 blue remote wires,one is for PWR ANTENNA (BLUE ONLY),when you insert the cd,this wire cut out the pwr,so,is when your subwoofers stop working.
The other blue wire is the REMOTE (BLUE W/WHITE) Wire,this is the one you need to connect to the Amplifier.

Let me know if work
Thank you

No sub when listening to a cd


you're using the wrong remote output wire. You have it hooked to the power ANTenna wire (blue) which turns off when not using the tuner. You need to use the REM OUT wire (blue w/ white stripe).
