Interesting that you have a Soundstream "The Continuum" amplifier. This is limited edition of the Reference 705 amp produced with a polished aluminum (not chrome) case. You have a very hi quality - Old School - amp.
Properly installed this amp should produce more than ample volume levels and certainly far more than a stock unit.
Because the Alpine head unit provides sufficient voltage to drive the amp, it is likely either the wiring, or, the way you have it set up.
The amp has a large internal capacitor bank and for proper operation, this amp must be connected directly to your car battery, prefereably with 4 AWG. (The amp is made with 4 AWG power connections.) Use high quality speaker wire run directly from each speaker to the amp.
If you have done the above, then it is probably the way you have it set up. The amp is sophisticated with many configuration options. Do not change any switch settings while the amp is playing. Ensure you have the appropriate inputs and crossover selected. Check the gain settings.
You need to buy an extra cable that connects to the back of the radio, it is ipod ready but you need buy the cable. The front USB port is just for mp3 or mp4 players that you can connect via a USB port.
These DVD systems have a wire that is connected to the parking brake and gets grounded when the parking brake is engaged to prevent the driver from watching video while driving. Once you engage the parking brake, you can watch the video. The video output still works for an external monitor while driving. These are precautions to keep you safe while driving. somebody watching a video while driving is much more likely to get into an accident.
There is a wire included in the harness, which needs to be connected to a ground I think it was called "PARK" or something. Just turn on the radio with a dvd in it, while touching the excess wires to a ground. You'll quickly have it in hand.
This was done as a safety feature to ensure you're not driving while watching a DVD.
Are you trying to watch the dvd while your driving?
Depending on who hooked up the radio the DVD receiver is only supposed to come on when the emergency brake is engaged.
You may have to hook it up another way for it to play while your riding.
