Question about AudioBahn A1451 10-Disc CD/DVD Changer

Power cable for A1451

I am installin the audiobahn a1451 in my vehicle. the a1451 comes with an 8pin DIN cable that connects to head units that have cd changer controls in the Sanyo format(Sanyo, Audiovox, Audiobahn, & Jensen). there is a cable that is available that plugs into the a1451 and has a filter/fuse box & 3 wires(12v+, 12v Acc, & ground). I am trying to find this cable. Audiobahn has not been any help because the unit is discontinued. if this cable cannot be found then will it be possible to cut one end off of the supplied DIN cable & wire it up to operate the changer, & if so what has to be done. in the supplied instructions for the a1451 there shows 4 ways to wire up the a1451. 1 shows the unit using an FM modulator. this is not an option for my install because my head unit(Valor DTS-660wt)has Aux inputs and multi-zone function. this is why i am using the a1451, for its multi-format disc reading capabilities. 2 shows the a1451 using the supplied 8pin DIN cable. again not an option because i don't have a Sanyo formated head unit. 3 shows the a1451 using a cable that has 8pin DIN on one end & 3 power wires (12v+, 12v Acc, & ground)on the other end. this is the cable i need. 4 shows the same as 3 but using an optical cable to send the audio to an amplifier with Dolby digital decoder. any help in either finding this elusive cable or a solution on powering up the a1451 would be greatly appreciated.

Connected a Dual XPA2100 300 watt amp to the battery and connected ground to chassis of vehicle. Vehicle is 2004 Saturn Ion with battery located in trunk area. Amp does not power on, all connections are...

The remote wire DOES need to be connected to the head unit. You can see if thats the problem simply by touching the remote wire to the power wire. The unit should come on. The head unit should either have a remote lead, or a power antenna lead, and thats what you need to turn the amp on and off. BE SURE your ground is solid, and its usually best to take that to the battery as well to prevent unwanted engine noise. Hope this helps!

The light on my amp is green but no sound

have you got the auto ariel lead from the head unit connected to the remote connection on your amp?
if not then that is your problem, it turns the power on when you turn on the unit. and turns it off when you switch unit off.

hope this helps

Amp Problem

my first thought would be the rca's. make sure the rca's are in good condition and also make sure that their in the right spot from the head unit. (some head units have multiple rca outputs or inputs) and be sure that your gains and levels are all set right
