Amps wont stay on

I installed the cd player in my 99 dodge avenger and i have an amp running to a pair of 6 by 9s and a separate amp running to subs and when im listening to the radio my amps are fine and my speakers work but whenever i use a different option of playing my music such as a cd my amps turn off and act as if they dont get any power.

Try to look at the connection on the back of the cd player and make sure that the amp power wire is connected to the power wire on the wire harness on the back of the cd player and that should work but i only need one amp for a pair of 6by9s and subs try to bridge the speakers all to one amp that should cause it to sta on while in cd mode hope that helps

I have a jvc kd r310 cd player and im running a 4 channel amp and 2 subs. How do i hook up another 4 channel amp to run my door speakers and rear speakers

There should be a "line out" on your amp. Take a pair of RCA patch cable and run it fron "line out" of the 1st amp to the "Line in" of the 2nd amp. Then wire that 4ch amp for your speakers.

How to wire it to make the bass cuts off when offing the eq

This unit has a separate EQ band for the subwoofer-- you'd connect the sub-out from your CD player to the sub input on the EQ, and the sub-out from the EQ into the input on the sub amp.
The "sub" slider would then adjust the sub volume.
If your CD player doesn't have a sub-out, and you are just using one of the regular front/rear outputs to feed the sub amp, then the sub volume will follow the other sliders toward the left side of the unit, which is less desirable.

I wont the speakers hooked to the cd player no the amp

check were the speakers are installed for pre existing wiring they probly left it there.. if not then you will have to run speaker wire from your stereo wiring harness to your speakers. if the speakers were hooked up to the amp then the wire in the harness should be vacant and you can use it if all the wires are connected then that means that you just have to find were that wire leads and hook your speakers up to it.

When the radio is on the sound comes out of all the speakers. when the cd player is on the sound only comes out of the sub woofer

are you running separate amps for the woofer and speakers??? sounds like you have the woofer amp being turned on be the amp remote wire (blue/white) and the speaker amp turned on with the power antenna remote wire (blue). if this is the case you need to use the blue/white to turn both amps on.

depending on how many channels the amp is, you may not be able to hook everything up to it.

usually you have a separate amp for subs. 4 channel amp for the speakers in the car, and a mono amp for the subs.

To hook them all up to the same amp you would need an amp with 5 channels. It wouldn't work out right.

If you have a mono amp its only for subs.

If you have a 2 channel you can either hook it up to the rear speakers or bridge them to mono to run the subs.

you need a channel per speaker basically.

I have a jvc kds580 and i wanna run a passive Bazooka EL and 4 other speakers. Can i drive the sub with the 2 RCA OUTS on the back of the unit? If not, how do i drive the sub?

RCA Outs are very low power signal connectors. They would have a hard time running a pair of headphones.

What you need is a Power Amp that the RCA's plug into and your subs Connect to.
You need an Amp (Amplifier) that powers a similar number of Watts to what your Subs Capacity is. (ie; your subs have a ratting of 100W (Watts), then you need an amplifier with 100W per channel; that's a 200W amp for a two way (Speaker) amp, or a 400W rating for an amp with 4 channels (4 Speaker connectors)
You can run a lower power amp on your subs, and use ony a portion of your speakers capacity; but if you get an amp that supplies more wattage than your speakers capacity, then you'll blow your speakers, their performance will deteriorate slowly. eventually they will not be able to generate a clear reproduction, Speakers are irrepairable.

Sorry for the long explanation.
This is something you wan't to do right, the first time.

How to wire a stereo system

Connect the 2 gage to the battery thru at least s 50 amp fuse, then connect the capacitor in line before the amps. Then run the 2 gage to a connector/splitter block and run 4 gage leads to each amp. You also will need at least 4 gage ground leads from each amp to a body grounded bolt or screw. You need to run a quality set of speaker leads from the head unit to the amps. The speakers will need separate leads from the amp to each speaker.You will need to try some different combinations to get the sound and bass you want. You want to be able to fade from front to rear and control everything thru the head unit.
Use a hole saw to cut a 2 to 3 inch diameter hole in the side of the speaker box for a port to get a better punch from the sub.
Hope this helps some....
