    Odyssey - Great idea man! I'm just sorry I didnt think of it...

    Rom - What do you mean by "it dosent have a cd changer" ?

    And just to further clarify - Your saying the headunit (CDA-9813 ) does ok, when your are just listening to the radio, but when you pop a cd in, the head unit shuts down ?

    You have no cd changer, and are only using 1 head unit - Right ?
    (it sort of sounded like you might be trying the run 2 head units)

    If all of that is the case - tejesh is right , run the power leads to the batery (even the - one) and test it out.

    There is no cd changer...The only cd player is the one in the head unit. When I pop in a cd to the head unit and crack it up to about 20-25 volume out of 35 it shuts off, and before it shuts off you can see the led lights on the head unit and even the interior car light begins to dim.

    I am only running 1 head unit the CDA-9813 from Apline.
    If I can't win, then I won't let you.

    If the internal lights of your car are dimming (no external amp's hooked up) you have a problem with your car.

    A headunit alone should not cause your lights to dim.
    have the shop check your cars charging system, and load test the batery. (they attach a big resistor, and measure the voltage)

    Run a power line from your battery and use a relay attached to your acc line.

    You might also want to run new lines for your new speakers. Make sure you run them down the passager side and not the driver side. The side panels easy pop off and on.

    I dont know if this matters but when my sub was blown it would automatically kill my amp and not allow it to turn on. It was a safety feature from what i was told cause since the sub was blown it was drawing too much power so my amp would automatically shut off.

    Perhaps from turning up the music so loud (35 seems kinda loud cause i usually keep mine around 22 but it varies from head unit to head unit about loudness and numbers etc) you may have blown one of your speakers and now that a speaker is blown it may be a safety feature in your head unit to auto shut off.

    Not sure if that could be it but maybe try hooking your stock speakers back up and see what happens?

    But also from what ive been reading yours doesnt sound blown but at the higher levels it could just be drawing too much power and just "overpushing" the head unit. In that case you may need an amp.

    So either way i would look into the speakers as a source of the problem. I almost bought a new amp cause of my problem until i narrowed it down to my sub as the culprit.

    Just an idea.
