Re: cd plays, but no sound

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.

You are using an amplifier in this vehicle. There are two "Blue" wires on the back of the stereo. One, antenna, supplies power to the power antenna during radio mode only and the AMP trigger supplying power to the amplifier in every mode. You chose the antenna wire to power your amplifier.
