Re: turning the bass level down

I could not find an owners manual for the CDA-9853, but I did find one close to it and it should be able to guide you to where the bass and treble levels are It is the CDA-9820. here is where you can download it from for free: Good Luck

What are good settings to have to make the music sound clear for a jvc KD-R310 deck?

you will need to access the bass and treble setting on the unit.
If you have stnadard speaker then dont put the bass to high as you can not turn the volume up high.
The same for the treble.
Set them at about the same and turn the volume up until it sounds good.
If it is to quiet then turn the treble and bass down and then the volume up more

I can't get any real bass out of this unit. Iv'e gone thru the manual 20 times and I set the "DZE" off, then adjust the bass to max and it made a little difference. But this unit is suposed to...

Try to exchange one speaker connections only, unplug connector from speaker and put them + to - and - to + pins.
In my opinion, both speakers are giving out of phase sound that cancels the bass sound, speaker connections should be same phase to get bass sound so just change connecting two wires at any one speaker, that will work.

Power problem?


1. Is the head unit powering the speakers directly or through an amp?
2. What ohm load (4,8,) per channel and how many speakers?
3. Does it do it with the bass set all the way down?

If you have access to a voltmeter see what the voltage is on the yellow and black wires when it is diming. It should be stable ~ 13.5v with car on. if its < 10v when dimming either there is:

1. Shorted speaker lead.
2. Bad ground to radio.
3. loose power feed to radio.
4. Ohm load below 4 ohms, causing the eccess current draw.

Head Unit Shuts Off At a Certain Volume

check your ground, it could be that your antenna is the only source of ground, in which case the deck does not have enough power to stay on when it draws too much power. I've seen exactly what you are saying many many times. Ground it really reallly good.

Amp and sub bass playing through all speakers

You need to go into the setup menu and find out if the radio has a sub low-pass filter that redirects the bass to the pre-out for the subs, and away from the main speakers. Fiddle in the audio menu.

No sound from speakers

Check the value of the fuse for the power feed, it could be that the fuse is to low. The unit uses 10A min. I suggest a 25A fuse. here's a manual Luck
