Ive hooked up all the wires from the dash to the player, it turns on an everything works except the four stock speakers, everything seems to be hooked up correctly an everyonce in a while ull hear a...

A couple of things to think about. If the radio is new, then the speakers may be bad. If the radio is not new and purchased from someone else, the radio may be bad. You are making sure the volume is turned up right? You did use a harness when hooking the radio up right? That is something I strongly recommend.

I have a 95 nissan maxima i am trying to replace stock radio(bose) w/a new cd player but once its hooked up im not hearing any sound? whats wrong with it?

Most Bose car stereos have an external amplifier. You will need to see if that is the case on your factory setup and remove the amplifier. Then hook the new headunit straight to the speakers.

Im trying to install a cd player in my 2000 mazda protege but no store carrys the connector for it. i need to know what the factory wire color codes are so i can run the wires into the new cd player...

The player or radio coming out should have a sticker on it with a diagral. If not, the only two you need to worry about is the red and bla. They are the hot and grd. and are larger than the speaker wires. Get those two hooked up, put in a cd and turn it on. Then match up the speaker outputs to the correct speaker. Should be only one wire per speaker. If not, All speaker grounds are the same color and markings. Good Luc, Ned

if your pioneer radio has the light blue ipbus/changer plug on the back of the radio, you can use this adapter and turn on the <aux> in the menu where you set the clock.

It doesn't need an amp, it has one built into the radio. You may have it wired wrong. Please tell me what color the wires are coming from the radio that you have connected to the speakers. Each channel has it's own color, with the black stripe wire being the negative for each channel. Example: the gray wire is positive for front left speaker and the grey with a black stripe is the negative for the front left. Make sure that none of your speaker wires are grounded to the chassis.

Need a diagram to hook my Bose CinemaT speakers. When I hook it directly to the tv no problem but can't figure out how to hookup my reciever and CD player to work also? Help Please

You'd be better off hooking the speakers to the RECEIVER'S speaker outputs, THEN hooking your TV audio output to an unused receiver input, such as AUX. The signals from your receiver cannot reach the TV; thus your CD player and radio will not play through the speakers if the speakers are hooked to the TV. All receiver INPUTS are designed to accept the same signal level; thus, you can use any input for your TV audio, such as Aux, DVD, CD, etc. Just remember which input you're using for the TV audio, and everything should work fine. Almost all receivers have an AUX input; hopefully yours also has a dedicated CD input to avoid confusion. The you simply select the AUX input to hear your TV through the speakers.

Sound from drivers door speaker in my truck.

check your speaker wire, sounds like the insulation is cut somewhere and thewire is grounding out. that is why the crackling and low sound. your speaker wire is grounding out or wire is broken, start at the speaker and follow wire to find the break
