I have a Sony CA700X headunit, it's really old. I had it for my old car for 2 years and then this car for another almost 2 years now. I've finally ran into my first problem with it though, my subs. I installed my subs the other day and everything works fine and dandy until I go to play a CD. The power to my amp and subs shut off when I switch modes to play a CD. So the only time the subs punch are on the radio. Is my HU too old or am I not hooking it up right? Here is a link to the HU, one on eBay atleast.

sounds like u hooked up ur amp to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on lead from the sounds of it

cuz when using the radio its gonna kick on the power antenna and in turn its turning on ur amp

so find the other blue wire

hope that helps
