Are your main speakers running through an amplifier? if so your using the wrong wire to turn them on. The blue wire will power them when the radio is on, but off for any other source. You need to use the Blue w/ white stripe.

How do i install my alpine cd changer to a kenwood mp528 unit

It is unclear which Alpine CD changer you have and what output connections are available from it.

However your Kenwood unit has Aux input terminals at the back. With appropriate cable connectors you should be able to hook the two up. In the Kenwood you will have to select AUX in menu when playing CD changer. Download user manual for Kenwood from this site.

Search using full model number KDC-MP528

I turned the aux function on on my alpine cdm 9821 unit. I purchased an audio adapter with a red and white plug (to plug in the back of the reciever) on one side and a regular 3.5mm headphone jack on the...

You must make sure where you plug in on the radio side is Aux input, most Radio Aux is at the front or come with special connector if it is at the back. Mostly radio back come with RCA is for Line out not Aux in.

Sub would only sound when am listening to radio would not sound when playing dud aux but surround speakers play

Possible that the connection to the AUX does not activate if you are using RCA inputs. Connect the DVD using the optical cable or the coaxial link and it must play better with surround and subwoofer in DTS.

What are the two short female rca cables are that stick out of the back of my deck

Aux Audio Input. Lets say you wanted to hook up a DVD player and have it play through your radio, you could connect the audio portion of the DVD player to these inputs and put you radio on AUX and the DVD audio would play through your radio..

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

How do i make my subs play when playing a video dvd they play when th radio is on

Does your subs play when you are playing a cd?If yes then you need to check the turn on lead for your sub amp and make sure your jensen deck is putting 12 volt out when your dvd is playing.If it is not you need to find the correct amp turn on wire, if it is then you may have to re equilize your sound when you are playing dvds.
