    I can not find anything that works on fixing this problem.

    The amp is getting power only when the remote wire and the RC connectors are plugged in. I can pull out the power supply to the amp and it will still be lite up as long as those other 2 wires are plugged in,

    We tested the amp and it is in fact pushing out everything it needs to, so we know that is not the issue,

    When i checked the outputs on the Alpine it was not showing anything. I called best-buy and they said that was an issue with this model sometimes. The exchanged it with no questions asked. They also tested the RC plugs in the back and said they were good.

    So i should be able just to come home and plug everything in. Well it still is not working.

    In fact i left it on for about 10 minutes and the amp was not even warming up.

    There has to be a setting or something on the cd player that i am missing.

Car deck turned too loud and shut off


The deck might be damaged. In order to accommodate that kind of layout, there should be a cross over, and a separate 2 channel amplifier for the subs. Without that it's easy to fry the deck!

How can i test my rca output jacks with a test light? pioneer deh p3100ub. hooked up spkr, nothing. tried one rca plug to white(lt) and then red(rt). Unit has 4 rca jacks, 2 for subwfr and 2 for front...


:) the rca jacks have to be connected to an amplifier,, their signal is too lay to even light a bulb.. you have to connect it to a car amplifier and then from the amplifier to the speakers..

Just so you'd know,, once your deck plays and you hear music on your speakers through your normal speaker wires,, RCA jacks work..

Ok you have 4 jacks,, 2 subs and 2 front.. These should connect to a preamp,, which takes 4 inputs and allows you to equalize or adjust how the music should sound,, now from the pre-amp,, it runs to an amplifier,, thats powers the subs and another that powers the speakers.. Some amps have 4 inputs so you can use one amp for your subs mids and heights..

for example a basic music system is

1 cd player
1 pre amp
1 amplifier (4 inputs, 4 channel out)

you bridge 1+2 and connect this to 1 12" double coil sub woofer

the next 2 connect to 2 mid speakers example "rockford or ev 5 / 8 " and 2 tweeters for heights..

Thats a kicking tricked out basic car audio system,,,

Hope that helps you understand how it works..

I have a fairly good sound system in my jeep cherokee, new speakers, deck, new battery, rca cables, and a new box for my subs. But recently i've been dealing with some problems. i've had my amp grounded...


there are really only 2 causes for this.

  1. grounds. Make sure the grounds are clean and tight and all paint and dirt was removed before they were fastened.
  2. Your alternator is starting to go bad.
I would lean toward the grounding problem as you have said you just changed them. Also make sure the grounds are as short as possible.

No sub signal from a CDX GT520.


connect the speake(sub) directly to the stereo(just use one of the rear 6x9 speaker wire to test the sub and make sure it's not the amp. if it does not work, it's the sub

I need help installing a 4 Channel Power Acoustik Amplifier to Two Pioneer Subwoofers. I hooked up the power wire to the positive battery terminal in the engine compartment. I then cut the power wire and...


You are doing right on what you described. I really like to work with a clearly described what involved in an issue.

Now we have to use a Voltmeter to check if there is power to the amplifier. If there is power to the amplifier terminal, then the problem is at the amplifier, not the connection. Let check it out:

1- Turn on your Kenwood radio, make sure to hear sound from your regular speakers.
2- Turn remote control knob to the mid level between min and max.
3- Measure the blue wire where you spliced to ground to see if you have 12V, if it is not then the problem is right there.
4- Measure the Red wire power from the Amplifier to ground ( the bolt that you connect the negative power to see if there is 12V, if not trace back to the Fuse that you inserted between the positive terminal of the battery and the wire going through the firewall to correct it.
5- If you have 12V at step 3 and 4, then you have a defect unit, return it to the manufacturer for a replacement.

Amp or Stereo Cutting out...


I agree with what you think it might be. I really think its the deck that is bad and you should be able to take it back for a new one. Have you tried unplugging the RCA cables to the amp to see if that stops it? That would tell you if the amp is backfeeding or doing something weird.

DEH-P360 Won't output to rear channels/Sub


Make sure that the FIE (front image enhancement) is off. If it is on, the rear outputs are muted.

No sound to the in car speakers from my alpine cda-9827 cd player


What kind of car did you install this in? Did it have a factory radio in it? If I had to take a guess I would think that there is a factory amp that you may have hooked the blue wire from the alpine deck to. If this is the case when you switch to CD the alpine deck turns off the power to the power antenna lead(blue wire) and thus your factory amp. If this is the case hook the factory amp turn on to the blue and white wire and you should be good to go.
