    I am having this exact same problem, and I am 100% sure that I spliced the correct wires. I spliced the REM to the REM/Antenna wire in the harness. I also just double checked to make sure that was correct. Any new ideas?

The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.

SUBS NOT WORKING WITH THE CD OR aUX


Since the subs work with the radio, then there is nothing wrong with the speakers themselves. The issue must lie with your radio or control unit.

The woofer wont turn off


The only wires that should be going to the subs are the Speaker wire, The power, goes to the amp, Blue the remote wire should only go to the remote spot on the amp wich is usually labeled rem. and the ground all goes to the amp.

check the amp. the "switches" gain,bass boost...etc they might be over powering your subs and heating them up. if those are fine then you mite want to try your subs on another amp...it migt just be that the subs are easily over heating.

Subwoofers work with radio and not cd player


You have mistakenly used the power antenna remote wire for the amplifier remote wire. When the FM/AM source is de-selected, the signal drops from that wire so the power antenna will go down.

Switch the 2 blue wires and you will be problem free.

Only door speakers have sound on the cd mode


the amp requires a 12 volt power constant, and a 12 volt "on" signal. you prolly have the 12 v "on" hooked up to the car stereo's antennae remote, meaning your amp gets power when the radio is on, cuase the radio is sending a signal to the amp (thinking that it is sending a signal to the antennae to raise)

you do have one of those collapsable antennas, right?

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........

Hooking up a subwoofer


If your head unit has speaker outputs, and RCA outputs, it should be able to use them at the same time. Turing off th internal amp is just to save power and heat if you aren't using it.

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

If you are unplugging the subs from the aux output at the cd player, your Audio lines feeding the amps is shorted somewhere between the cd player and Amps.
