Question about Clarion DB538RMP CD Player

Open Question

On/off volume control switch intermittent

The volume control is intermittent on my Bose/Clarion factory audio. '97 Maxima. OEM. If I could locate the replacement part I could fix it myself. I already have it out of the car and out of the tuner. Any suggestions as to where I might get another 'on/off volume control' switch for this? Model number PN-2121D.

Thanks,

Alan

How do you adjust volume on a Clarion DRB5155 CAR STEREO


Does this unit not have the rotary volume control? If so, then simply rotating the rotary knob should control volume. If there is some failure, I recommend contacting a local car audio professional, or you may contact Clarion customer support directly by clicking here:

I trust this information has proven beneficial.

Just install a aftermarket media player in my 97 30G maxima and am get power but no sound th factory head unit was a non Bose unit made by clarion can anyone help


Are the speaker compatible? Aftermarket units tend to be higher wattage which means they are too powerful for underpowered stock speakers. So the 125w player is incompatible with the 50w speaker. Note the ohms too. Speakers are not universal.

No volume


The Bose system in the Z is wired to control the entire car's speakers. Each speaker has its own amplifier, and the OEM head unit puts out a line-level signal to each amp. Your Clarion unit puts out speaker-level signal (in effect, an amplified signal), into the Bose amps, and it's probably overdriving them and putting them into shutdown.

Your best bet is to replace the Bose speakers with aftermarket speakers meant for a speaker-level drive (which is what I did in my Z, and never once regretted it). If you do so, you'll need to run new wires to the speakers, or if you use the OEM wiring, you'll need to unplug the amps and run the wires from the amp harnesses directly to the new speakers. I think there is an adapter harness you can use that will tap into the line-out jacks on your Clarion, so that a line-level signal can be sent to the Bose speakers - I'd do a google search for "Metra harness 300zx" or something along those lines (Metra makes the lineout harness adapters - I use one in my Audi).
