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.

Everytime i try to play my system at full volume it cuts out then keeps playing and carries on doing this to i turn it to a certain volume


First of all find out the recommended speaker impedance for the receiver. Then find out the impedance of the speakers you are using along with it.
Simple rule is the speaker impedance can be higher but not lower than the recommended value. If it is so the receiver will run hot and if you turn up the volume higher it will run even hotter and then the protection circuit will cut off the Amplifier output to prevent burn out of components. Even if you have one defective speaker this cut off can happen. To confirm defective speaker -- disconnect one speaker at a time and turn on the amplifier and play it at cut off volumes.If by disconnecting one particular speaker the Amplifier does not cut off -- THAT SPEAKER HAS A SHORTED COIL and needs replacement.

Receiver cuts out when playing a cd


Could be overheating, make sure nothing is blocking the vents at the top

Could be 4 ohm speaker when you need an 8 ohm-check speakers

Could undersized speaker wire. Go by some lamp cord and splice the ends and use it, do it anyway whether its the cause of the cutting out or not-it'll sound better

By a can of co-contact cleaner, unplug the receiver and spray the heck out of the circuits

My AVR 2803 shuts down when volume is at medium or above.


too big a speaker load,unit sensors shut unit down when speaker impedance gets too low . and draws too much current at hi volume.A bad woofer or tweeter voice coil burned by sudden excess volume can cause this,also partially shorted speaker wires.

Auto amplifier


It depends on if you want it to be able to play really loud and really clear. The deck will probably drive them pretty good on its own but when you really crank on some head decks the sound can start distortring.
Wheres the sub it the package?
Get a less powerfull, 50 Watt X4, amp and get a decent sub with a mono amp or they have all in one 4.1 channel amps. To drive the whole system and keep it easy.
Have fun

Sound problem


Make sure all speakers that are hooked up sound ok. If any of them sound lower then the others or sound distorted you may have a speaker with a partially shorted voice coil. If speaker or speakers pop when power is first applied you may have a grounded speaker that should not be grounded. Each speaker wire rides on 6vdc and if any speaker sees a ground you will have 6v across voice coil which would explain any popping noise when first turned on and radio may play for awhile then overheat. be sure speakers are 4 ohm min per ch otherwise amp will run to hot. Just a few Guesses

If DIGITAL sign blink, this mean DSP board is defective. It will cut the sound on the AMP section. DSp is maybe defective.
