Yes, you have power and no load. Even a speaker on low volume or no volume has load.

How to connect speakers to RCA model #RP-8070D

This unit is just a 5 disc CD player and cannot drive large speakers all by itself. Normally it is hooked up to a stereo receiver / amplifier which is what provides the power to drive the speakers which are wired to the back of the stereo amplifier.

If you have a home stereo, then just run the cables from the 2 AUDIO OUT connectors on the back of your CD player to the CD IN connectors on the back of your stereo.

Then turn your stereo on and select CD on your stereo input mode selector and you should be able to play the cds on your RCA and hear them through the stereo speakers.

If you do not have a stereo amplifier with speakers to connect it to, then you can always listen to it through headphones connected to the headphone jack.

Or if you have a set of self powered amplified speakers, like the kind you hook up to a computer, then you can run the AUDIO OUT cable from your cd player into those as well.

Good luck.

I have hooked my subs to the back speakers, or kickers, in the past, but i got an 08 focus with sync which only has speakers in the door. at first i tried to get to the back of the stereo with no success....

The easiest way to tag the speakers is to tap the back door speakers. Remove the door plate trim then the trim between the doors. remove the door pannel. follow the wires from the speaker through the peice between the two doors. That is where i would tap. Now the wire colors should be White/purple pos. Gray/white neg. (LEFT) and white pos. gray neg. (RIGHT)

My 2004 Grand Am GT Stereo Issue

I had the same problem when I changed out the factory cd player. I finally found the problem was that grand am gt cars have a couple of amplifiers with crossovers in them for the speakers and the after market stereos put out sound that has been slightly amplified already and when you hook up your new stereo to the wiring harness your sending amplified sound from your stereo the the factory amp then to the speakers this sometimes messes with he sound and clarity of the sound. My car is 2002 and the factory amps are located 1 under the glove box and 2 in the trunk behind the carpet on the drivers side. The amp and crossover in the front is to split the signal for the door speaker and the tweeter by the mirror and the amp in the trunk is to split the signal for the two way speaker in the back by the back window witch if they are like my factory speakers have 2 wiring harnesses connected to each speaker. the only way I could get mine to sound good was to run new wires from your stereo directly to the speakers and bypass the factory amps. This may not be the only way to fix this issue but it was the only way I could figure it out. I hope this helps

Only door speakers have sound on the cd mode

the amp requires a 12 volt power constant, and a 12 volt "on" signal. you prolly have the 12 v "on" hooked up to the car stereo's antennae remote, meaning your amp gets power when the radio is on, cuase the radio is sending a signal to the amp (thinking that it is sending a signal to the antennae to raise)

you do have one of those collapsable antennas, right?

What Speakers?

Excellent choice on head unit (stereo). I NEVER had a bad panasonic. First, you MUST realize that you can blow a peaker 2 ways. 1st, by giving it too much power (not your issue as factory speakers can handle ANY deck power you may have (IE 4 x 50 watts etc.)

The 2nd way is by distortion. This is the MOST COMMON reason why speakers blow. You just ccan't play massive amounts of bass from a stereo. Your deck will distort and burn up the voice coil.

So, really anything would work. I sold Cadence (not in active business any more) and I will tell you, they CAN take abuse. UYou can check them out at www.cadencesound.com I'n not selling, jus recomending! You can check out my rides at http://www.cybersoundsaudio.com/cybersounds/vehiclepics.html and see what they are. The HURT/OLDS has componenet 51/4's giving they 15 wats RMS to each pair. Also took 1st in sound quality. Also have the sam pair in my van since 199!! Yeah, they last!

Take care,
