How do i remove a
The removal keys for this unit are not the usual "U" or "HorseShoe" keys.
Disconnect the live feed before starting.
You require the Pioneer removal keys to avoid damaging the unit.
Your local accessory dealer may loan them but cheap enough to purchase.
Once the unit is out you simply gently pry at the locking tabs which retain the cage into the dash facia. I normally use a firm electrical screw driver for this part.
Remove the loom and antenna etc. from the cage connectors and it should be free

1. Is the head unit powering the speakers directly or through an amp?
2. What ohm load (4,8,) per channel and how many speakers?
3. Does it do it with the bass set all the way down?
If you have access to a voltmeter see what the voltage is on the yellow and black wires when it is diming. It should be stable ~ 13.5v with car on. if its < 10v when dimming either there is:
1. Shorted speaker lead.
2. Bad ground to radio.
3. loose power feed to radio.
4. Ohm load below 4 ohms, causing the eccess current draw.

When I try to play a C.D. on my system it says frmtread error
That error is (Format Read Error). Usually a MP3 problem when the disc was burned too fast, or corrupted during burn. Some writing programs dont put an initial track on the CD designating it an audio disc. I have seen Nero have many Problems with this. FYI
Try burning 1x speed on the next disc, yes slow, just to see if it works. If so then gradually increase the burnning speed up again.
