confused HELP!!: Amp And Sub!

Hi guys and Gals.

WEll, I wired up my amp and Sub today but I have a Minor Problem! The amp only works with the Radio on, as soon as I switch to CD, the amp goes off. My first thought was that I have the remote wire hooked up to the antenna. I checked the wiring, and its hooked up to the one labeled remote. So i Swaped em around anyway. Same problem, Amp works with radio and no CD. I went down to JB and mad out i bought the stuff of them and asked a few question, they had no idea!! HELP!!!!!

Anyone have any idea whats wrong? Audioline amp and Kenwood Head unit.
Can I Just hook the remote wire up to the Ignition?

Thanks

Hooking the remote wire up to ignition would a better alternative. There is most likely a fault in the head unit. If you have a multimeter/test light, check the remotewire of the hu, when radio is on then when cd is on.

It wouldn't be a really flash idea to hook the remote up to a permanent power source, as it will eventually drain the battery/..

Cheers

I hooked it up to the ignition and it works sweet! Thanks guys, i just didnt want to wreck anything.
There is only a signal from the remote wire when the radio is on, it almost like there both antenna wires. Ahh well Problem solved!
Cheers Guys.
