Question about Alpine CDA-9885 CD Player
My sub works fine when I play music through the radio, but when I switch to my cd player, the amp cuts out. I think I might be somehow overdriving the input on the amp and it is clipping but my settings are pretty low. Any other suggestions on why it would instantly shut off like this? Dave
It shuts off because the remote turn-on wire to the amplifier is connected to the power antenna wire behind your head unit. The power antenna wire is only activated when the tuner is selected. You need to switch the remote wire to the blue/white wire from the head unit (currently you're using the blue wire). This is the true remote output, and will activate the amp whenever the head unit is powered on.
