Re: cd player dosen't play with amp
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.

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.
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........
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.
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.
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
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.
