Question about iLO XM-MP3-CD Car Stereo
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 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.
