Hello KCEEZ,

Are you using a head unit along with the amp? If your problem was that the CD would play through the speakers, but not the amp, I'd say that the switched power antenna wire was used instead of the amp turn-on wire. Your source is selected through the head unit, so if it plays the radio, it should play the CDs.

Let me know how it goes..

Check the connections for the CD player is it connected to amp correctly, try to reconnect all the connections back and refer user guide to install the amp and for connection...........

    Try to set to default factory settings , if this amp is under warranty get it replaced as the audio from the CD player is not detected by the amp........................

Hmmm...what cd player are you using?..

    this sounds like an impedance matching issue. Kenwood's are usually quite receptive to anything you can plug into them, as long as the impedance matches well..and the power to the amp, are you saying that the amp shuts down?

    well..the reason that an amp shuts down is mismatched impedance, or an overload into the wrong input jack..please check that jack that cd is plugged into amp, again, and let us know.

I having problems getting my subs to play through the cd player!!


More than likely you have hooked up the power anttena wire as your remote turn on. So hook up the OTHER blue wire to feed your amplifier, and problem solved.

Cd player plays, but no sound comes out of speakers.


Look at the enwood. I bet you have the remote wire hooked to the blue wire insted of the blue/white wire. The blue wire goes dad when you play a cd as it is for a power antenna. The blue/white wire is your amp turn on.

Now, if you do not have a blue/whie and only blue, then obviously that circuit in the radio is bad in whch case your only other option s are either connecting it to an accesory fuse or using a toggle switch connected to power.

Troubleshooting in car cd player


that is very strange but it could be that when you put the cd in the radio it maybe sending out a quick shot of amplified power I would try disconecting the subs put in a cd let it play a little then plug the subs in while the cd is playing and see if they work if this works you may to get a new radio or put in a switch to turn the subs off or some type of momentary circuit breaker I'm just trying to help I never saw anything like that before good luck........

CDA 9885 No idea why it suddenly stopped working


It sounds like you have a bad ground connection. You need to take the radio out and check all the connections. I bet you have a loose one somewhere. That is what the problem was with my bronco

Plays radio not cds


You may have Power antenna and amp remote turn on wires switched. Your system may be looking for turn on signal from radio and only gets it when am or fm is on because power antenna wire is hooked up instead of amp turn on signal.

Alpine 9881 cd will not play sound


If you had to connect the remote amp turn on lead from the headunit to the factory amp turn on lead you may find your problem there.

On many headunits there are 2 blue remote wires 1 for antenna and one for amp turn on. The antenna remote only supplies power when the radio is playing not when playing CD's. If you hooked the antenna wire to the amp trigger then the amps shut down when you play a cd. If that's not it let me know and I will research further.

Amps wont stay on


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

Sound shuts off, sub still works


That is a common problem with this radio, for it can not go to loud without going down in volume or shutting down.

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.
