    "use bigger wires."

    I appreciate sarcasm; and I do appreciate people with this natural ability.
    Sarcasm is usually innate; however headman333, if you would still like to attempt
    developing this ability, your chances of success would be greatly
    increased if you were intelligent, or at the least not mentally
    incapable of detecting and reproducing sarcastic remarks. Because headman333 if you cannot make your very own sarcastic comments, you can
    still pass as having some grasp of this art by being able to recognize
    sarcasm when it is produced by someone else, and be able to retain it
    in your memory long enough to use it at a later time when that particular
    sarcastic remark would be relevant...

Radio will not power up when I pust power button.

Make sure you have power going to both the red and yellow wires. If power is going only to the yellow wire, it will eject cds, however both the red and yellow wires need to have voltage going to them in order for the radio to work.

Is it normal during the installation of the H&B CA-8050 CD player it gets hot after working 15 minutes?

If the stereo gets to hot even when it is off, the problem can be a bad conexion and you could solve it by crossing red and yellow cables. eject the radio, check your iso connector, you can tray to cut both cables and connect them again the red to the yellow and vice versa. Refer to your manual for further information on conexions. Check also that the stereo is keeping the values you give (radio station memorys, bass - treble adjustments, etc) If the conexions are wrong, the radio doesn´t keep these values when you take the ignition key off.

I purchased a Catalina Hot Tub that has a KDC-MP228 installed. The radio works however the CD player does count, recognizing the disc however there is no audio coming from the pop up speakers located on...

It sounds like the stereo has got some faulty circuitry internally. You'll need to replace the unit to be able to listen to CDs in your hot tub. you may want to look into getting a marine radio as a replacement. I'm sure this will be more suited to this application and is probably the kind that should have come with the tub in the first place. I hope this helps and good luck!

Need a hot wire radio switched

The black wire is the chassis ground and should be hooked to an unpainted metal surface. The yellow wire should be hooked to a constant 12 volt line, one that is not controlled by the ignition switch.

You can find more installation information in the online installation manual.

Alpine IVA-D310e radio problams

More than likely you got some wires crossed. The Aux or Accessory(usually the red wire, stays hot all the time so the radio can save your presets) the yellow wire is usually the main power. I would go back through your wiring and make sure no wires are crossed. I'm going on my experiences with installing radios and other equipment. hope this is helpful, if not sorry.
