Yes, I believe the subwoofer amp is connected to your power antenna.

One question for you.... why do you want this to work with your CD.... the gain for the FM just boosts the signal so its louder in your car, it wouldnt do anything for your CD.

LOL, you must be from the old school where people had the FM signal boosters. He'* got a subwoofer amplifier that turns on when it receives a signal from the radio that it is on.

Start by checking the new radio owner'* manual to see if you can get the antenna control to remain "up" when you have the CD on. Or check to see if there is an alternative output for additional amplifiers which provides 12V+ whenever the radio is on.
