    sounds like a loose connection somewhere....sounds like the amp is not getting any sound to reproduce....are you sure you have the adapter hooked up correctly??? and that the rca's are securly connected to the amp and all that..???good luck.....

    3make sure ground is solid,metal on metal,no paint ,no plastic
    but it sounds like you did everything right
