Hey there guys i just bought a car that had a jensen VM9510TS cd/dvd player and trying to wiring my amp/subwoofer to it, the only problem im having is that the jensen has a single subwoofer out hookup and my amp has 2x L and R.. would i need a RCA Y cable to split it or is there another solution?

try using your blue/white wire instead of the blue wire to turn your amp on. The blue wire is power antenna remote turn on and shuts off when leaving tuner mode. The blue/white wire is amplifier remote turn on.
Does your subs play when you are playing a cd?If yes then you need to check the turn on lead for your sub amp and make sure your jensen deck is putting 12 volt out when your dvd is playing.If it is not you need to find the correct amp turn on wire, if it is then you may have to re equilize your sound when you are playing dvds.
have you got a wiring kit for the amp? the amp needs atleast an 8 guage tho id suggest a 4 guage running from the batter to the amp with a 50 to 80 amp fuse atleast, then it needs to be ground to the chassis. a remote wire then needs to be run from the back of the headunit so that the amp only turns on when the ignition is on, then hook the wires from the amp to the sub.
well i will let you know now that 400 watts running into two subs like that will never match. You will want to run only one sub or get a bigger amp. But for that amp a standard 6 gauge power wire will be sufficient to run it. The ground wire about 4 gauge is good.
Remote wire from Jensen is blue or blue/white. Use Blu/white if there is one. . RCA's, for subs, use the rear if no subwoofer pre-outs are available. If unit has sub pre-uts, use them as the head ubit (stereo) would have a level that can be raised or lowered thus giving you more control over the input to the sub amp.
With RCA cables. Just plug into the preamp outputs on the back that are labeled for "subwoofer" and run them to your amp. In your on-screen EQ, you'll have a separate adjustment for the sub (which adjusts that set of preouts, without affecting the tone in the rest of the speakers).
my jensen vm9510 ts turns on and you can listen the radio dvd's cd's but the screen do not come out even if you reset it and press the open button, so you can't seen anything is already coded to play dvd's with out eh parking brake. If any one can help me please.
There should be some sort of outboard amplifier. Mine had an amp at each speaker, and also a receiver mounted behind the passenger seat. Could it be that the power antenna lead from your headunit is connected to the amp turn-on lead? That way, when the radio is playing, the antenna lead is powered and thus the amps are too, whereas when the CD is playing, the antenna lead would not be powered and thus no sound.
Try reversing these two wires (Power antenna and amplifier turn-on)
and your CD should work.
