Make Sure the remote wire is connected from the radio to the amp, its normally a blue wire. Here is a picture of what the setup should look like.

Hey I have an Alpine CDA-9851 CD Player and was wondering how to hook up my two 10" Kicker subs, since there is no subwoofer connection on the back of the player.

First to start you need an amp something that is a little stronger than your subs. What you want to do is 'T' off your speaker wires into RCA's to hook up into the amp. There is a device you can buy or you can cut some RCA cables. There are a few down sides to do it this way because as you turn up the volume the Subs will get louder and start to distort a lot faster than hooking up proper. The best way to do it is to get a deck with RCA sub outputs. Good Luck

I Just Purchased a Cavalier with an Alpine CDM 7861 stereo. no owner manual or slides to remove the slide out head. how do I remove without damaging the stereo?

If you go to an car audio install shop they have tons of leftover slide removal tools. Just ask them for a pair. The nice shops will just give them to you without charging.

Alpine cdm 7861 stuck in pause mode

Check for a "jammed" button. They use a little rubber membrane behind buttons and over time they do wear out. It is possible to push a button on the corner, make it shift enough to jam behind the faceplate & hard to see. Just push the button and see if it pops back like the rest of the buttons on the unit. If it still has a problem, post a comment and I will help you some more. Hope this helps

No sound to the in car speakers from my alpine cda-9827 cd player

What kind of car did you install this in? Did it have a factory radio in it? If I had to take a guess I would think that there is a factory amp that you may have hooked the blue wire from the alpine deck to. If this is the case when you switch to CD the alpine deck turns off the power to the power antenna lead(blue wire) and thus your factory amp. If this is the case hook the factory amp turn on to the blue and white wire and you should be good to go.

Troubleshooting on Adjusting Treble/Bass

Look in your owners manual and make sure you are turning the right knobs or pushing the right buttons once you have the adjustment screen for the bass/treble showing. It could be that they use different knobs/buttons than the volume control. If you are using the right controls, then you have a problem that only a shop can fix. You might reset by taking away all the power (acc and bu) for a couple minutes and then reconnect, but if that doesn't help then it time to go to the shop.
