Question about Alpine CDA-9856 CD Player

Cold Blooded Stereo

Hi all, This system was installed less than six months ago. I have had no problems with any part of the system until about a month ago when it started getting cold at nignt. When ever it gets below about 37 deg. at night, the unit will only provide a good signal to the sub amp. No signal seems to be sent to the speaker amp. After about 15-20min. some static and electrical noise starts and within a min. or two the system seems to work fine. Thanks in advance for any suggestions-My local retailer is useless.... JIGHEAD

Re: Cold Blooded Stereo

Switch the input wires from the sub to the speaker amp and vis versa. See if the problem switches to the other amp. If it does, you know you have a fault in the head unit. If it stays in the same amp, then you know you have a problem in the amp unit. Check with the manuufacturer online about how long the warranty is on each unit. Maybe they are still covered. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.

Subwoofer makes a loud bass machine gun noise when powered up

Well, I have the same problem and I would think it has something to do with the RCA-connections. If I power up my head unit while I have my main fuse for the amp's removed and then replace the fuse as the head unit is already playing music (thus putting out a current through the RCA-connections) it works just fine. But if I just power up my stereo with the fuse in, my subs go all crazy. I guess it has something to do with disruptions in the rca cable. Maybe they are drawn too close to some power cables or speaker cables? Good luck!

No sound comes out of the left pre outs

It sounds like the preamp wire that carries the left channel signal between the HU and the 2ch amp has an issue. Here's two quick things to check.
  1. Check that both ends of the left preamp cable between the deck and 2ch amp is not loose or disconnected.
  2. Swap the left and right preamp connections at the amp. If the issue stays with the left channel, the issue is with the amp. If the issue moves to the right channel, the issue is with the preamp cable or the HU's preamp output.
Let me know what you find out!

Mine would do the same thing. What you need to do is turn the unit off and it should go into demo mode. There is an option for "reverse mode on or off" make sure it is turned off. I beleive you will have to hit the band button to change it.

Horrible noise coming from subwoofers

It is not the deck that is a load of crap.... I install radios all the time and never had that problem.. You had some idiot work on your audio and he did something wrong. Now my first question is if you have an amp that was later added or put in at the same time. Allot of the time they wire the rca's and the speaker wires in utilizing the harness adapter. Duh,,,, right... Second, they made their own ground which consisted of them tapping into metal under the dash... now think about this that winding noise is probrably from the stereo being grounded to the same place as everything else in your car when they should have used a factory ground.. My suggestion is you paid for it... Make those **** fix what they did until they get it right if they keep fucking up start demanding free shit.... your time is being wasted on their fuck up take what ever you can from those assholes...
