Is this considered clipping in marine boat stereo help!!!!

Yes I just recently bought a new clarion marine head unit to replace my existing stock stereo in my boat. I replaced all 4 existing stock speakers with new Polk audio speakers. After wiring the head unit, everything is fine and operational except when I turn the stereo up it does not distort as normally would if the speakers were not getting enuff power from the stereo. Well I turn it up and it makes this noise like it's clipping or as if a cd was skipping here and there but it's not the cd tried a couple as well as the fm radio does the same thing but only when the stereo is turned up. I got ahold of the people I purchased the unit from by email and he said to try and ground it differently. Now i'm not sure why this would cause it to clip cuz I just used the same stock ground wire that was going to my old stereo...please help Thank You,

    I just installed a Clarion M275 and I am having the same exact problem. I have installed numerous stereos in the past and this is the first time this has ever occured.

I just installed a clarion M275 in my boat and had the same problem. I ran a heavier gauge power wire to the battery and the problem is solved. Try doing the same and it should be the remedy.

If your radio is puiing more power your ground might not be good enough, use the same spot but remove the ground and rough it up a little on the base with some sand paper or add a metal o ring to get a better ground.

Have 2002 rodeo lse...what is brand of stereo? Want to purchase new factory stereo...bought one previously, that looked like installed one, but did not work because of tuner or amp issue.


There were probably different stereo unit options available but the particular stock stereo in my 2002 Rodeo was a "Clarion" Model No. P1-9993M (cassette player). I've since upgraded to a better aftermarket head unit so you are welcome to my old one if willing to pay shipping (ha,ha).

I have a clarion m455a marine raidio in our new boat. It has two cmrc3d remote control stations. niether one of them work. Why


Sorry I can't help you...but wanted to let you know you are not alone. I bought a 2007 Chap last March and have the same problem. I've covered all the basic/common sense troubleshooting but can't get them to function. My frustration is that the displays work so the clock/radio station is displayed but nothing in regards to controlling the deck.

My new Clarion CMD6 stereo won't stay powered up.


If all power and ground are good to go then the unit needs to be fixed. Being that it is more likely to "see" moisture, it may have water shorting out the circuits.

Can i connect ipod adaptor to rca output jacks?


With out an input jack you cannot connect straight to your head unit. The RCA out puts only send a signal out. Your best bet is use an FM transmitter for your Ipod. The sound wont be as good but I can't think of another way with buying a new head unit.

Clarion Marine Problem w Sirius CeNet Unit


When a CD changer or Sirius satellite receiver is added to a system, the source unit’s main wiring harness must be disconnected before the changer and/or satellite receiver’s CeNET cable is connected to the source unit. Otherwise, the source unit will not “recognize” that a CD changer or Sirius satellite receiver has been added.

Had to reset the siriuss receiver by removing power for 15 sec and restoring! that means not just shuting it off but removing all power to the sirius unit not the clarion unit itself and reastablishing power to it turning on the clarion head unit and walah! satelite would recieve ESN and 184 and programing! Hope it works for you after 3 long waiting periods on the phone!
