Question about Clarion VMA5894 5.8 in. Car Monitor

1 Answer

I need to find out what power sources I can use for my monitor

The manual for my clarion vma5894 is not very helpful.
It tells me how the wires are supposed to connect, but not where I'm supposed to find a power source.
I am trying to use this monitor to monitor what I am recording with my Canon XH A1 video camera.
Please help. I've searched the world for an answer.

    car or home? Neither...I need a power supply for the monitor to use with my video camera.

  • rwhalliday Dec 27, 2008

    how do I find it? Where can I buy it? What cables do I need to connect it? Isn't that as big as a car battery? Is this thing going to be portable? Car batteries are heavy.

    The power source MUST be portable and lightweight.
    I have to be able to carry it along side of my video camera while I record videos.
    Does this product exist that is less than a pound and smaller than 4inchx4inchx4inch ?

Need wire diagram for clarion 500EQA equalizer

Your installation manual is not anywhere to be found since the product you are inquiring about was made 1985-87... however, by deduction, you can figure it out yourself...

You need a Power 12V Constant.
A 12V Switched
A Ground
And Signal Cables.

Reply with the wire colors available to you, and I will tell you what is what.

Yellow is usually constant 12V.
Red is Ususally switched 12V.
Black Is Ground.

RCAs are self explanitory.

If your EQ has HI Level outputs, the color scheme is a little more complicated.
