Disconnect the blue wire from the back of the radio and connect the blue/white wire in its place. This should fix your problem.

New Alpine radio, went through setup, plays fine on radio/tuner on all four speakers, but ipod (USB port) or internal CD only plays on front speakers.

Just a thought - the usb provides a digital signal which carries information about how the signal is to be processed; mono, stereo, surround sound stereo, etc.
If the mp3 music file was only recorded in 2 speaker stereo perhaps that is how it plays back.

Admittedly the radio signal is stereo and yet it plays on four speakers but unless it is a DAB radio it is analogue and maybe that makes a difference.

Perhaps there is an internal electronic fault with the digital processing part of the unit. I suggest reading the handbook again and then perhaps contacting the seller.

I have a Alpine CDA 7892 CD head unit I just installed and the radio works perfect but when I play a cd it sounds very muffled and I can hear bass only. Is the unit bad?

If the sound is coming out clearly with the radio on, then there is a problem with the cd drive or its connections. If your stereo has aux. inputs, you could run an mp3 player until your ready to replace it.

After installing the alpine CDE 9870 car stereo there was no sound... although the car speakers work.Maybe the audio in the stereo?Can thatbe fixed?

In this situation 8 times out of 10 the problem is not with the radio, it's that there are factory amplifiers. Many cars have them, and most require a little work, or an adapter to get going. Tell me the year, make, and model of the car, and perhaps I can give you more info.

Problems with amp or stereo

check out
this site has your stereo's wire diagram.

The amp wires only go to the rear output (rca jacks on back of cd player)
It wont work right if it is connected to the front outputs on the back of cd player

Bass sounds only

That is tricky one. Did you try adjusting the EQ on both the stereo and the amp? Is the Mute turned on because it will act like that? Is both rca jacks plugged in on stereo and amp?
