Re-read The First few posts of this thread and you'll find your answer. Look at the pictures also.hey i just installed my new head unit but the only thing that is bothering me is that the antenna cable doesnt reach my head unit do they sell any extenders or adapters so it can reach?
That's exactly why I'm thinking there's a setting somewhere that's killing your bass or something... the factory sub amp gets its signal from the speaker wires via a line out converter...so if the sub is working for some stuff, it should be working for everything.Nothing in the manual is of any use on this. (It's a pretty rough, 5 language, cartoon drawings manual).
Here's what baffles me (and feel free to correct me): the factory sub shouldn't "know" where the signal is coming from... regardless of whether it's the stock deck or an aftermarket, it's all the same once it connects to the factory wiring harness. The only output on the receiver is the 4 speaker wires, and somewhere/somehow after that (I don't know where it connects) the factory sub gets a piece of the signal. How on Earth would the radio signal power the sub but the iPod wouldn't? It should be the same signal coming across the same 4 wires, from the receiver harness to the Crutchfield adapter harness to the factory wiring.
I think my answer may lie in knowing how and where the factory sub gets it's signal.
to answer your question....swap your amp turn on wire (blue/white) with the power antenna (blue). that will solve your issue..
right now that one wire is hooked up wrong. your radio is shutting down amp thinking it's a power antenna.
Hey hawk_sixsix...here's the solution to your problem...never even thought of this one!
