Subwoofer doesn't play through ipod, only radio and cd's
I have a 2002 jeep wrangler that has a factory sub under the center console. Everything works great with the Alpine head unit but when playing songs off the ipod the sub does not play. It is hooked up correctly b/c it will play when the radio or a cd is playing. Is this an ipod setting or something wrong with cd player? How do i fix this problem?
i have the same problem with my aftermarket subwoofer in my celica. the guy at best buy said something about the wire going from my amp being solid blue needing to be blue with a white stripe or something... i couldn't really follow tho... where would u buy a new wire for that?
Re: subwoofer doesn't play through ipod, only radio and...
Hi,is the subwoofer works with radio then it must be the quality of your mp3's that is poor, diffrent sources do not change the subwoofer output....
also it could be the source tone feature, the unit will remember diffrent bass&treble and sublevel settings for diffrent sources, maybe the bass is turned down, also check the EQ on the i-pod, that may be affecting to sound?

Subwoofer output: Hold the (AM-) button down for at least two seconds.
You can do this function when "SWPRE" in is set to .
The SWPRE (Switching Preout) Switches the preout between rear output ("R") and subwoofer output ("SW").
I would go to walmart and buy the disc....its like $10 and made by phillps. After you just put it in your disc slot and it plays you should hear some guy tellin you that its cleaned....this happened on my 2001 Jeep Liberty so it should work
I had the same problem in my 1998 Jeep GC Limited. It has been a year and a half since I have played a burnt cd in my cd player. I researched everything possible and came to the conclusion that it was either the type of cd I was using (some cds with prints etc are hard for the laser inside the player to read) or the burning speed, and after many failed attempts, I still couldn't find a combination that would work. Then yesterday, my brother had a burnt cd he had made with his computer and we tried it just to see if it might work and it did! So, the brand of cd is Memorex, the type is CD-R, and they are 80min. worth of recording time. I purchased some of these cds at Hastings (although I'm sure they are avaliable wherever you purchase blank cds) and tried burning one in my laptop just to make sure it was going to work and it did! I burned the cd using windows media player and before I started the burn I went into 'burn options' and set the burning speed to the lowest possible. Hope this helps!
that is very strange but it could be that when you put the cd in the radio it maybe sending out a quick shot of amplified power I would try disconecting the subs put in a cd let it play a little then plug the subs in while the cd is playing and see if they work if this works you may to get a new radio or put in a switch to turn the subs off or some type of momentary circuit breaker I'm just trying to help I never saw anything like that before good luck........
Currently you have the blue wire from your Kenwood head unit connected to the blue wire in the Chrysler wire harness adapter. You need to disconnect this wire, and reconnect it to the blue/white wire coming from your Kenwood head unit instead. You probably already have the remote wire from your subwoofer amp connected there; both wires need to be attached to the blue/white Kenwood remote output.
Your LHS is equipped with a factory amp. The blue wire in the Chrysler harness activates the amplifier, but it's connected to your Kenwood's power antenna activation output; therefore it's only being turned on when the tuner is selected.
