No sound new install - JVC Car Audio & Video

Posted by on

  • wane_patrik Oct 13, 2008

    I was not sure how this site works, so I didnt go too far into it. Here is the details.



    I have a 1990 Mark VII Lincoln. It had a Clarion aftermarket radio in it that I am replacing. There was a factory amp in the trunk, but that was bypassed by the person who installed the Clarion. There is a grey harness with the 8 speaker wires that go from the radio to the amp. This harness has had the connector cut off and the 8 wires connected to the Clarion harness. Then the amp output harness has been cut and the wires spliced to the input wires...in the trunk. No schematic with Clarion or the Lincoln. This set up used to work but the radio was cutting out at will. I think an internal problem.



    I am installing a JVC KD-G340. The Clarion and JVC connectors are different. The wires are mostly the same colors. I spliced like colors together and plugged the JVC in. I see the face plate come on, it scans for stations and finds them. I get no sound from speakers. I get a pop when the radio is turned on. That is it.



    I have new speakers I plan to install. I hooked one up to the harness that came with the radio. I get no sound there either...immediately out of the radio.



    Thanks for any help.

More information would be required to help you with this problem properly. If you are using an amplifier and have no sound from it, you may just have the remote turn on of the amplifier not connected. The radio should have a blue wire coming from it and that would be the wire that goes to the amplifier to turn it on when the radio is turned on. If the radio has no sound coming from the speakers connected directly to the radio, you may have a bad speaker, bad speaker wire, or even have the speakers connected wrong.

If you can please give me more information about the install, like what model radio, what type of amplifier, how you have connected the wiring, how many speakers and what the speakers are connected to (an amp or the radio), I can help you figure out the problem. But please understand, since I am not there to look at your install, I can not know how you have connected everything. Are you using a universal wiring harness to connect to the factory harness and your radio? Have you added extra speakers? What wires have you connected to the speakers? If you have an amplifier, have you connected the RCA output of the radio to the RCA input of the amplifier? There are many things that must be connected properly for a sound system to work, if you are not familiar with how they connect together you really should have a professional do it for you. If you furnish the needed information I will be glad to help you further. If you do not furnish the needed information there is really nothing more I can help you with.

A lot of companies are using 2 ohm speakers for stock speakers. This means they are more efficient (sounds strange that a stock speaker is efficient). The stock amp may not be able to put enough power out for these to sound good. You may end up needing a new system.

They were shorting on the internals of the car door. Put some electrical tape over the connections to make sure this doesn't happen - it can be very unhealthy for your amp.

'04 Nissan Sentra S factory installed subwoofer wiring diagram


A FACTORY INSTALLED AMP/SUB WILL BE WIRED INTO THE VEHICLES FACTORY WIRING JUST AS ANY OTHER COMPONENT. YOU WOULD THINK THAT YOU WOULD FIND THICK POWER AND GROUND CABLES ALONG WITH RCA CONNECTIONS AS YOU FIND WITH MOST INSTALLS.NOT THE CASE HERE.YOU MUST FIND THE HARNESS THAT HAS THE POWER AND GROUND CONNECTIONS ALONG WITH THE INPUT WIRES FOR SOUND. YOU MUST OBTAIN A VEHICLE SPECIFIC WIRING DIAGRAM THAT HAS THE WIRING FOR THE SOUND SYSTEM PACKAGE THAT CAME WITH YOUR VEHICLE. YOU MUST THEN WIRE IN THE BLUE REMOTE TURN ON LEAD FROM YOUR UNIT TO TURN THE AMP AND SUB ON WITH YOUR RADIO AND NOT YOUR CAR BATTERY. YOU WILL ALSO NEED TO FEED SOUND TO THE AMP USING ONE OF THE REAR OUTPUTS FROM YOUR RADIO.

Brand New Speakers Distorted and not right...


Are you still using the same head unit? You could try to run a short set of new wire to one of the speakers directly from the unit. Had you previously used these speakers in another vehicle...what I'm getting at is that you need to isolate the problem. If the speakers test fine in another vehicle, I would think there is something wrong with the existing head unit

No sound comming from car speakers


What kind of car? What kind of system? More details will help me assist you better. If it is an aftermarket in-dash stereo, it sounds like the blue/white wire is not hooked up correctly. This powers up the car's amplifier and lets the sound through.

Car speakers


I take it that you are running it off a factory head unit and your not getting enough drive on the new speakers. Are the new speakers a component splits? Does it come with a separate tweeters and crossover? If so... are the new speakers 4 Ohm Impedance? Coz the only thing i could think of is that these new speakers you have must have a higher impedance than that of the previous drivers. the higher the impedance the less sensitive. Your can try to match speakers impedance usually head unit is at 4 Ohm. Please let me know how you went. Cheers
