I just had the same thing happen to my friend's car. More than likely your remote wire from the amp is connected to the remote wire for your power antenna comming from your deck. There are usually two blue wires coming from the back of your deck. Simply take the remote wire from your amp and connect it to the other blue wire coming from your deck and you should be good to go.

Make sure you used the blue with white stripe wire from your head unit for the remote wire for your amp. The solid blue wire is for triggering on the power antenna and does not supply voltage in CD or AUX

SUBS NOT WORKING WITH THE CD OR aUX


Since the subs work with the radio, then there is nothing wrong with the speakers themselves. The issue must lie with your radio or control unit.

I have an amp powering two subs but only work with the radio and not when its in aux mode or cd mode. do i need some other conection


I am not familiar with your head unit but I know some radios can control audio options for each source. My unit has adjustments for bass treble fade sub out etc in each source like radio, dvd, cd usb etc. I would check this first. For example, my radio can have the bass set to zero while the dvd can have the bass set to 5. If this is the case for your stereo, the sub out for the different sources can still be set to off.

No sound


hi there
on your CD deck or what ever unit you plugged the RCA wires to needs to be set on subs the radio needs to be set to put sound to your amp.....on your CD player if you press the F/function button a few times it will scroll to SW which is for the subs set this to the on position or if your CD player has a button with SW press it and turn on this feature......if this has been done......check the fuse or fuses on the amp.......if you have done all of the above check the back of the CD unit to make sure you are plugged into sub-woofer RCA or R (rear) RCA ..........sometimes people accidentally put the RCA wires into the aux input RCA,,,,,, double check this.........
hope this helps

My amp only powers the subwoofer when the radio is on but wont when the cd player is on


The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.

Subwoofers not working While listening to CD


The remote turn on lead for the subwoofer amplifier has been connected to the power antenna lead (solid blue) of the radio. It just needs to be connected to the radios amplifier turn on lead (blue with white stripe).

Amp and subs cut out when I insert a cd in my radio


You have the amp connected to the blue wire on the radio instead of the blue one with the white stripe. The blue one is the power antenna wire so when you switch to cd, it would close a power antenna. If you dont have a blue /white wire, you can hook it to the red 12v wire. Good Luck
