Tip & How-To about Cambridge Soundworks SoundWorks 730 Clock Radio

Damping

For improved performance out of these radios try stuffing some speaker insulation in both of the speaker cavities in the front . make sure you dont over do it so that the speakers install without the insulation hindering them resting flush on the mounting surface when you reinstall them.There is room around the sides inside the cavity for sufficient material.Use as much as you can without hindering reinstallation. I also took mine completely apart and added insulation to the subwoofer cavity,along the top which has divisions good for pieces of insulating material and near the woofer also a few more pieces where there was room for it.BIG difference .Most speaker cabinets have insulation to help control standing waves and cavity resonance and plastic cabinets will also benefit.When you put the screws for the front speakers back in make sure they are just snug without overdoing it.When you install the top to the bottom [only if you decide to do the main part with the subwoofer] make sure they are tightened all the way otherwise the top and the bottom will add resonance from not being securely anchored to each other ONLY TIGHTEN SCREWS WITH A HAND TOOL SO YOU DONT STRIP THE HOLES OUT !

PANEL/CLUSTER LIGHTS HAS GONE OUT AFTER REPLACING RADIO. WHAT MAY HAVE CAUSED THIS PROBLEM AND HOW CAN I SOLVE?


radio may have been wired improperly or fuse may have blown. First check fuses. Below is the color scheme for your radio wiring. The dimmer wire is White with a green stripe. This wire should be connected to the orange wire of your aftermarket stereo. If you have an unusual stereo, leave the factory wire unhooked (and insulated) until you can verify which wire on your stereo is for the light. Let me knoiw if you have questions.

car front two speakers arent working. rear two are.


have the front speakers ever worked?

if not have they been connected properly?

if yes then
look under ballance and check theat rear and front ballance is in the middle
if it is then for temporarily replace the front speaker with any old speaker
if that works then you need new front speakers
if no then the radio is broken

but what you could do is rewire the back speakers so they also play though the front ones too
this can be done from behind the radio

find the rear right positive and negative wires
strip the insulation but dont cut the copper wire
cut the front right speaker and attach that to the rear speaker wire
do this for both positive and negative

rear right
positive

wiring problem for DEH 1430R


I have to ask if you are willing to spend a little time with the 30 wire bundle? First of all you have to have a 12volt dc tester and a 9v dc battery. Take the tester and check each wire of the 30 wire bundle until you find one with 12 volt. Mark it and set aside. If you get more than one with voltage that is OK just mark them w/tape and make sure they get capped or taped as not to short anywhere. Now that you know which wires are HOT, lets move onto the others.If possible find out how many speakers are in the vehicle. Take the 9v battery and find small gauge wires in the bundle of 30 remove insullation on the wires about 1/2 inch touch one wire to one post on the battery and another to the other post (Just a tap, do not hold on too long) you will hear a speaker pop. Find out which it is front left, back right etc. and mark the pairs that make it pop. If possible to pull the speaker you can identify the wire colors from the speaker to see if they are in fact in the 30 wire bundle. After you locate your power and speakers the 15 wire harness should be easy to attach to the proper connections. Hope this gets you going.
