Speaker hook


Hi it's a problem in the set up . This model , like few other in the line have the possibility to switch the "back speakers" ( through harness or RCA) into "BASS SPEAKERS" what give you a possibility to hook up a Sub without an extra amp .
To switch it back just follow the Section 2 / Sw control of this link http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/StaticFiles/Manuals/Car/DEH-3300UB_OwnersManual0902.pdf

Look for loose or broken wiring connections. Swap front and rear speakers wires at radio and determine if problem is the radio or the speaker system.

No sound coming out for my hartke amps?


Are the internal speakers properly connected via the rear-mounted 1/4 inch "Speaker Output" jack? If so and still no sound, try connecting a separate external speaker (floor monitor, pa cabinet) for a "low volume" test.

The OM says the internal speakers are 4 ohm so it's unlikely that a wiring problem with speaker connections would cause all four to stop working. With AC power disconnected from outlet check for an internal speaker protection fuse BUT be careful. Charged capacitors can hold a charge for weeks!!!

We have a Jensen marine system that came installed in our Tahoe boat. Shortly after we got the boat, the left speaker stopped working. A few months later, the speaker came back. Then just before the end of...


This really sounds like a wiring problem. I would start from scratch, seeing as how it will be difficult to find the issue you describe. Also, if you can, solder your connections to the radio. If you used crimp butts they may not have been tight enough and vibrated loose with use of the boat. Hope this helps

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

Disconnect all the speaker leads and then hook one speaker (a new, known to work speaker) up directly to the radio using a short (6"-12") piece of speaker wire. Does that speaker work then?

(http://inform3.kenwoodusa.com/manuals%5CKTSMP400MR.pdf )
Here's a link to manual and wiring on page 30 on the PDF file.
Yellow is constant power from battery, for memory etc. Red should be to switched source.If need be, you can connect both to battery, but remember, you'll have constant power draw on battery when stereo left on but switch turned off, and will draw battery down, if you forget to shut it off, and leave the boat. Speaker negatives to black should work but I would advise hooking my 2 right and 2 left + speaker wires from stereo together, then to one of the speaker positives,right or left for better sound. Fronts will usually supply higher ( high and mid range), and rears will supply lower sounds (woofer) Joining them together will give better sound usually, when only using 2 speakers, on a 4 speaker stereo. You may want to test with them joined and not, to see what sound you like better.

Boat stereo/speakers


Wonder if the return line from both speakers was wired to a common earth, and you've lost that connection? If that happened, you'd end up with the two speakers in series instead of in parallel, and just playing the difference between left and right channels (so very much quieter). Check also the stereo doesn't have a separate fuse (possibly internal) for the power amp stage. A.

No Sound - boat stereo


Assuming that the four speakers are connected to the amplifier, then the amp is the most likely problem component. Does the amplifier show a power light when the system is turned on? Note that there is probably another fuse in the amplifier power wire, near the battery.
