I just hooked up this cd player in my car because the old one stopped working. i have subwoofers in the trunk and for some reason the subwoofers only work with the radio. when i put in a cd the lights on my amp shut off and the subs wont work. i have never seen something like this happen.
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........

I had the same problem. most radios have a power antenna wire and an amp turn on wire it sounds like your amps are being turned on by the power ant wire that loses power when you put a cd in try swapping the blue with blue and white wire this should solve it
the maunal states the if you press the display knob down towards am for at least 2 seconds it will turn on. However, for me it did work, but i recently disconnected my battery and now it doesnt work so good luck.
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.

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.
