Question about iLO XM-MP3-CD Car Stereo
I installed a new stereo in my boat. Good power to the stereo and everything seems to be working fine, but when I hook up the speakers, I get nothing at all. I have checked and rechecked the wiring and even changed speakers, but still nothing. All the settings on the stereo are correct for sound to be there, but still nothing. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Assuming that the four speakers are connected to the amplifier, then the amp is the most likely problem component. Does the amplifier show a power light when the system is turned on? Note that there is probably another fuse in the amplifier power wire, near the battery.

Wonder if the return line from both speakers was wired to a common earth, and you've lost that connection? If that happened, you'd end up with the two speakers in series instead of in parallel, and just playing the difference between left and right channels (so very much quieter). Check also the stereo doesn't have a separate fuse (possibly internal) for the power amp stage. A.

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.

not sure if your still looking for a solution or not but here you go. that orange and white wire is normally the wire that controls the dimmer within the stereo. when you dim the dash light the factory radio lights dim and that wire is suppose to make the new radio do that also. in my past i have found that only about 30 percent of the aftermarket radios actually do that when hooked up. give this a try and let me know. good luck
