Amps usually receive their signal through RCA wires. Your radio should have one pair of RCA outputs on the back. (red and white) You will adjust your subwoofer volume by adjusting the gains on the amplifer (little knob next to the RCA inputs of the amp), then you can turn up the bass on your radio.
Sounds like you have the amplifier for the subwoofer only coming on with the radio. On the back of the Clarion radio, you should have another blue wire, but with a white stripe. This is the correct wire to use for turning on the amplifier. Connect this to the "remote" or "turn on" connector of the amp.
Here is a good Amp for your Clarion subs, , remember Clarion subs cant handle too much power, clarion is more of a radio and speaker company, Subs are not really their market. Go easy with them :Here is a link with the amp and price I recommend :
purple right rear + speaker
purple/black right rear -
green left rear +
green/black left rear -
white fr left +
white/black fr left -
grey fr right +
grey/black fr right -
blue auto antenna
blue/white rem amp
brown phone mute
You have put the remote antenna wire to the remote turn on of the amplifier. The radio cuts off the power to the "power antenna" when you switch to a different mode... so your amplifier is now losing the turn on signal it requires to stay on.
Simple 2 minute fix.
