Question about 2000 Jaguar Vanden Plas

2 Answers

1995 Jaguar x300. Harman Kardon pre-amp. Part # LNA4170AB. Rear speakers have very little volume. Have to fade output to the rear and turn volume up completely just to know they are even there. Ideas on the cause?

    No, they were operating fine til a couple months ago. I noticed one day
    that the stereo sounded odd, then began hearing static in the rear when
    I accelerated (like an old stereo without resister spark plug wires).

Radio volume went out after a popping sound in the rear. It turns on and I can hear it but very faintly.

If power is more than speakers can handle this will happen. If you have a amplifier in the rear than all it is a fuse or a circuit breaker needs to be reset

How do i remove rear seats on 1995 jaguar xj6 vanden plas

remove the rear heel board covers, locate one scew on either side holding seat cushion remove cushion disconnect wiring connectors if it has heated seats, locate 2 screws holding seat back at lower end, the seat back then lifts upwards,,note depending on vin, number there may be 2 upper fixings for seat back located in the trunk behind trim panel. hope this helps. i presume this is a XJ40 model and not a X300, however the removal procedure is similar.

My 2001 330ci has the Harmon Kardon sound system. However, when I run the system at high volume for about 5 minutes, the front speakers start cutting in and out. It doesn't seem like a speaker is blown,...

Thermal issue is shutting down amps till temps moderate. You must be driving your system too hard. And check out your tone control settings especially the bass. Every 3 db boost forces amp to double power at that frequency so if you are already blasting at 100 watts, a 3 db boost will compel amp to put out 200 watts, etc. Very easy to overdrive and overheat amp. You might want to try blowing air over output stages to improve cooling at high volume levels.

You are lucky that you have good protection circuits - otherwise by now you would have blown the output stages.
