Question about Dual XDM6825 CD/MP3/WMA Player

3 Answers

No sound comes out of speakers

After pulling out my old car stereo, I hooked up the wires from this one via the colors used by the old stereo. Now, no sound comes out of the speakers, but sound does come out of the subwoofer, but out of nothing else. The stereo works fine so far as I can tell (powers up, switches stations, etc.), just without sound. If anyone has the wiring diagram (which colors of wire do what) that would also be great.

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.

What wire do I connect my after market stereo memory wire to? My aftermarket alpine stereo is connected to a 2006 GMC 1500

You need to get the Wire color code for your pacific stereo and for your pacific car. Your really lucky if they randomly end up to have the same color code. Each speaker has two wires that need to be connected to the car, a negative and a positive. All negative wires SHOULD be connected to only other negative corresponding wires. Not a huge deal but you sacrifice sound quality. There is a "12v + Constant", one on the stereo and one on the car that need to be connected. There is also a "12 Switch" on each end that need to be connected. The constant is continiously running power to your radio to keep the time accurate as well as keep your setting on your stereo. Some have what is called a memory wire, only one, either coming from the car or the stereo that needs to be connected to the constant connection. You also have a thicker gauage wire that is usually black on both ends, but you never know, that needs to be connected. Electricity cannot travel through thin air, it has to be physicially in contact with the ground(indirectly or directly). If your hooking up a sub or an amp I really haven't gone through the proccess, but for a simple 4 speaker and stereo system, that should be all that you need, for more cars. All Different. Some have two costant wires. DO NOT use both to only hook up stereo. You use only one with one appliance the other is for amps, and subs. If you have both of the constants from the car connected to the constant on the stereo your car will not start, and your gauages will short out until one of them is disconnected. If you are only use one, it is a good idea to use the larger gauage wire. The smaller the wire the more risk of fire(in correspondance to the watt to gauage ratio). I hope this helps. Spent all day doing it. Never found a guide. My advice is to call the manufactuers personally because none of the info I found matched up to the other sources I found.

The fact that your speakers have only one wire, indicates that they are the old negative ground type. You will have to buy new speakers, or try and connect the negative wires of your speaker wires from the radio to the car body (chassis) and try that. Normally you will get a bit of static when you start your engine

Stereo display works fine, but no sound to speakers.

The wires may have gotten wet and fried something in the sound output in the stereo.

Wireing harness

you can buy the proper harness for any vehicle at most stereo shops or even some at WalMart, but you have to hook it to the one that plugs into the radio. The colors on each harness will be identical- just match them up.
