Hello, my name is Rusty. That message is saying that you have speaker wires touching. That causes a short, and is not good for the radio. The speakers should work just fine with your new unit, check the wiring to make sure the connections are clean. If you still get the message, disconnect the speaker wires and connect them one at a time to find which speaker is causing the problem.
