    What do you mean by radio hookups? Did you say the RCA outputs are working?

If the previous radio played all the speakers and the new one wont either:
1. You have not hooked the speakers up right.
2. All your speakers are blown.
3. There is a factory amp, you just don't know about it.
4. The radio has blown final outputs.
5. One or more speakers or speaker wires is seeing a ground (shorted out)

First check the radio, hook up a know good test speaker directly to the speaker outputs on the radio. If it works, then take a 9volt battery and try to pop the inside speakers with it. When you touch the + & - speaker wires to the battery + &- you should hear a pop at the speaker. If you do you don't have an amp. If you don't you might have an amp or the wire going to the speaker is dead or shorted out. It is unlikely that all four speakers would be bad or have bad wires. If none of them will pop you need to turn on the factory amp. Then they will play. If only one speaker wont pop then that is the bad speaker. If they all pop then you have a bad speaker or wire.

One thing to remember about most radios, the RCA pre amp circuit will still work even if the mosfet power amp inside the radio does not. The best way to know if the amp inside the radio works is to use one matching color pair coming off the radio to wire up a random speaker right to the radio. You can use just about any old random 4 ohm speaker that is laying around to check it. The best solution if the amp inside the radio is blown is to replace the radio or amp the pre amp outputs with a small 4 channel amp. Oh, by the way. What vehicle are you connecting this into? And does the vehicle say Bose, Infinity, or ect sound or Premium sound? These usually denote a factory amplifyer already onboard and requires special connections to get the signal to these amps to then be delivered to the speakers.

All the power is there but will not create sound


Assuming you are talking about an aftermarket amp, sounds like your input signal isn't working correctly. You might have a bad set of RCA wires. You might have a bad RCA connection on the amp or at the radio also. One way to test this would be to get another set of RCA wires and just hook them up. Just pull the radio out and temporarily connect one side to radio and the other to the amp. If it works, then pull the old ones out and put the new ones in. A question that I have is this, are there any lights coming on on the amp? You might have good power and ground, but the remote wire might not be sending the signal to tell the amp to turn on.

Jensen CD-510K hooking a 200 watt amp to it.Need to know what wires need to use to hook it up


rca cables for audio and a remote wire. just plug the rca cables into the plugs in the back of the deck and the remote wire (i suggest buying a thicker (speaker wire size) gauge wire since it allows you to get more power out of the amp) to the blue remote wire coming from the deck. you will also need an 8 gauge power wire (12 inches to 12 feet depending on where the battery and amp are) and an 8 gauge ground wire (no longer than 24 inches).

My indash jensen radio keeps shutting down when turned up?


Sounds like there's a power problem. First take out the radio and leave it connected. Turn on the radio normal volume, then disconnect the radio's antenna. If the radio shuts off then you need a better ground. If the radio doesn't shut off then you need to run power wires to the fuse box.
The only other thing is you have a bad speaker that only shorts out when you turn it up. Disconnect all but one speaker or one speaker at a time and see which one is the problem.
