The head unit probably has 2 control wires. One has 12v when the signal source is the tuner. When you switch to the other sources, the antenna is not needed so the output to that wire is switched off (so the power antenna will go down).

Look for a wire marked amp control or something similar. It will have 12v output any time the head unit is on. Use that one to control your amplifiers.

I have a couple of questions regarding my jl 500/1. the first question: i just transferred my amp/subs (subs are JL W3s) to a new vehicle, and the place i had install it switched the "high/low"...


ok..well theres a lot of question in there, lemme take a shot at it.

the hi/low switch explained: the hi/low switch tells the amp what signal voltage is being delivered to the amp...hi-power (4-15volts) or low-power(micro-volts). Your aftermarket head unit had what are called pre-outs (or preAmp outs) meaning the source signal (your music) is not amplified before being delivered to the amplifier...sooo...your amplifier setting for your aftermarket radio would be 'low' to tell the amp that the music source being sent to it is low-voltage.

Typically a manufacturers radio will not have pre-outs, they will be amplified by the radios internal amp to anywhere from 4volts on up, and you need to tell your jl audio amp that the source music being supplied is 'hi' voltage.

soo...of course...if you are sending 10volts to the amplifier and tell it that your sending micro-volts (low setting) your amp will over-amplify the signal and thus the overwhelming bass you experienced.

On my recently installed Jensen VM9414, while playing a DVD, I can clearly hear the background noise/music, but I cannot hear the characters voices. I thought maybe it was the setup but have tried...


I've had this problem before, but not on this specific head unit. You most likely have your audio setup to 5.1 or other surround format, yet have nothing hooked up to the center channel output of the head unit.
Unless you've currently hooked up the center channel to an amplified speaker, or gotten out of a surround mode, you're not going to hear anything.

If you do have everything hooked up right and are sure the settings are correct, possibly a blown amp in the head unit.

Everything works fine when i play a cd it works it reads it but dont hear the music when i turn to radio i hear the music,just wondering what could be wrong help me out thanks..


First off how long have you owned the unit? Did you buy it new? Did it ever work playing cd's? it sounds like either a setting problem or a hardware problem with the unit. Once I have more information I can assist you further in trying to isolate the problem.
Thank you,
Lee

Visonik amp problem... amp goes in and out of protection


Check for intermittent shorts on the speaker leads.

Turn down the volume control on your head unit while operating the amp, you could be over driving the amp.

Remove Speaker leads and reset the amplifier. IF the protection LED still comes on amplifier is faulty.

Below is the link to put in a help request with the manufacture for repair.

Visonik 350watt Amp Doesnt Come On....


With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter probe on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red probe alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Ok this problem is killing me...


maybe the speaker is bad

First try one thing, switch the rca jacks around and see if the other speaker stops working this time.

If so the problem is in the rca jack or head unit.

If the same speaker is still not working, the problem will be the speaker, you will have no other options left since you changed amplifiers and checked all wiring.

Let me know if this helps you

CDs and Ipod wont play with Alpine CDA-9885


The Alpine has two tigger wires when it turns on. One is an AMP TURN ON wire (blue/white) and a PWR ANT wire (blue) and that wire only comes on when using the radio or an optional HD radio unit ... When it was installed/connected . someone hooked your amp turn on wires for your "full range amps" to the PWR ANT wire. And the sub amp trigger is either hooked correctly to the AMP TURN ON WIRE or somewhere else, it probably shouldn't be... Check it. Amp triggers should all be to the blue/white wire from your alpine. Warning: Alpine trigger wires, are very easy to mess up they supply a very limited amount of power.

Sub cuts out when I switch to CD player?


It shuts off because the remote turn-on wire to the amplifier is connected to the power antenna wire behind your head unit. The power antenna wire is only activated when the tuner is selected. You need to switch the remote wire to the blue/white wire from the head unit (currently you're using the blue wire). This is the true remote output, and will activate the amp whenever the head unit is powered on.
