I have a Clarion car audio system. I want to use it as an outdoor system on 120v. What kind of power supply does I need? Does something else should I take care of?

Car stereos require power for both red and yellow wires. You can twist them together, then black for ground. Not sure about your power supply setup. A standard ac to dc should work. Run speakers externally. Usually white and grey wires are front left and right and purple and green are the rear. good luck

I turn up the volume and it says amp ground the car doesnot have an amp?

Pull the deck out and make sure that your ground wire is attached to a solid ground and that your wiring is intact and sturdy. The deck itself has its own internal amplifier which powers the vehicles speakers.

I am installin a Clarion DB185MP auto source unit. It's on but no sound, when I turn volume control it says "amp ground" on screen- a code not in manual. I have reset unit but get "amp ground code". ...


It sounds like its wired inproperly, get a amp and note that everything is set up and wired properly, I assume the speakers are working fine could you test them with another unit?
