I have a Clarion Marine amp that started cutting out when playing at medium volumes. The first time it happened it was pretty hot. It now does it at any temperature. Any suggestions?

I would start with your connections. I'm assuming that since it is marine it is on a boat or pontoon. Your connections will see more weather than a normal in-car setup. Make sure you don't have an corrosion on your power connections and that they are very sturdy and water tight. Also what is the power output of the amplifier? How big is your power wire and how good is your battery? I wouldn't go any smaller than 4 gauge. Also if you battery is too old, it might not be able to keep up. On the issue of over heating, make sure that it is well ventilated, if it is mounted directly on a surface, use spacers to get it off the surface and let air flow under it. I hope I gave you some options. Good luck.

What is the voltage and wattage of the Cerwin Vega E-715 speaker fuse?


Speaker fuses are rated in Amps. If you cant find the specs on your speaker via google, (I couldn't find anything on the fuse.) start with a 2 Amp 'slow-blow' fuse. That should work at low to medium volumes. If you find it blows at low volumes, move up to a 4 or 5 Amp fuse. E-715 is a big speaker, (handles 400W!) so starting at 2 amps should be pretty safe.

In my boat is a Clarion CMD6 head unit with two rear CMQ1620R speakers, it distorts at medium to high volume, you cant turn it up load when going.Wishing to put two new speakers in the front, cannot cut...


Best bet is to take your boat to a qualified Marine Audio dealer (generally not a boat repair shop or marina), or to a good quality Car audio store that is insured to work on boats (separete insurance usually).
When it comes to boats, you need lots of power and speakers.
First thing to do is make sure what you have is properly installed. Then determine what is "distorting" .. is it too much base, purely volume or what.
Most boats we do (wakeboard style and river boats) we do: 40-75 watts RMS per speaker 4-6 speakers in boat 1 10" or 12" sub with 200-300 watts RMS Tower speaker if requested with 75-125 Watts RMS per speaker

My Clarion APX480M marine amp cuts out at random


try to unplug each speaker one by one while playing it. There can be a defective speaker that grounds out at the speaker terminal or internally causing the amp to go into protection causing all the speakers to go out.

About a month ago while on a gig, I noticed that the amp was cutting out when I played solos at a high volume. I play at barely half volume now, and if I go any louder, the same thing happens, it cuts...


Not likely preamp tubes. If they cut out they would fade slowly then come back slowly...

First check for marginal input jack. These take a beating and get loose and poor contacts. The vibration can cause the contact to be lost.

Also volume controls can get marginal...

Try to catch it in the act and tweek things to find someting that is affected.

Another common problem is contacts on jacks meant for effects inserting. These pass the signal through switch contacts when nothing plugged in and those contacts are "junky" to say the least.

Have external gateway speakers


First make sure your sound cards are working properly. 1) Check the master volume of your PC. Go to start menu, control panel, sounds speech and audio devices, sounds and audio devices - i) In volume tab click the speaker volume and check whether all the left, right, etc.. volumes are in medium or high. ii) In audio tab click the volume tab of sound playback and make sure that the master volume is not in mute and all the volumes are either in medium level or at 100%. After making these changes try playing any music. Even if the problem persists go and get your sound card checked in an authorised service centre.

Thanks & Regards,
