    Eclipse Headunit problems

    I'm having problems with my system. Recently, I tried installing just the headunit into my car (98 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX, with factory Infinity system). The sound would continually cut on & off. So, I decided to just take the entire factory system out & put in an aftermarket one. I put comps up front & coaxes in the rear. When I hooked everything up, no power to the amp. I think the remote turn on from the h/u is bad, so I jumped the remote input to the power cable, and voila, the amp works. However, the sound still continually cuts on and off (using tuner or CD), so I'm thinking the headunit is bad. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

    It really could be many things. It sounds like you've possibly gotten a short in a speaker, or possibly have a screw through one of the RCA's.

    I tried 2 different sets of RCAs. Also, it's happening through all the speakers. I figured if it was a bad speaker, it would only happen through that one, correct? I'll double check the wiring though, thanks.

    Could be the amp, could be a loose connection. Sounds mostly like the amp power/ground is loose or even remote. Check ALL the wiring.
