ok i have a Sony Xplod cd player, 2 Sony Xplod 12in Subwoofers(1200watt Max Power) and a 1500watt(Max Power) Sony Xplod amplifier, i have everything hooked up correctly as far as i know and everything works great when i have the radio on(and i hate the radio), yet when i switch to cd player the amp turns off. anyone possibly have an idea of what to do?
simple. you wired the amp REM to the head unit's PWR ANT lead. move it to the REM lead instead. power antenna only gets 12V when the radio is on. REM (remote) gets +12 whenever the head unit is on regardless of source.
pwr ant is blue/white trace rem is blue or vice versa. I forget which way sony does it..
