Question about Kenwood KDC-MP238 CD Player
I hooked up subs and amp in my truck. I ran the remote wire to the battery to test them and they worked fine. I then tried to run the remote wire to the back of my head unit and that did not power the amp. So I spliced the blue/white wire in the wire harness and connected the remote wire to this. This did not power the amp either. So I spliced the red wire in the wire harness that runs from the battery. I connected the remote wire to this and it did not power the amp. The next time I tried to play my cd player, it would play but no sound would come out of any speakers, even with my subs disconnected. Did I blow a fuse or wire somewhere? I put a cd in that I burned mp-3's and it plays but with no sound. Any suggestions? Thanks.
First off the amp gets power straight from the battery. the amp is used to power the subs. the subs are suppose to be connected to the amp only( never the speakers).
for the second part you mostlikely killed the wires. you should get some one to look at it and check the wires. thee speakers might need to be re-wired

Look at the enwood. I bet you have the remote wire hooked to the blue wire insted of the blue/white wire. The blue wire goes dad when you play a cd as it is for a power antenna. The blue/white wire is your amp turn on.
Now, if you do not have a blue/whie and only blue, then obviously that circuit in the radio is bad in whch case your only other option s are either connecting it to an accesory fuse or using a toggle switch connected to power.
