SOURCE: Clarion Marine Problem w Sirius CeNet Unit

Yes, unplug it while its on and try leaving both unplugged for an hour or so and connect them while unplugged and see if they recognize each other

If this doesn't work then you may need new software which may have gotten corrupted somehow, just reload it on and see if that fixes it

Please update me on this and I will help you further if the above doesn't work

Thank you for using Fixya and Good luck

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.

Speakers stopped working. Unit seems fine except no sound.

Have you tried another set of speakers and wired directly to the unit? If yes, then the internal amp may have failed or a failsafe shunted. Try resetting the unit.

If all else fails, I recommend contacting Clarion customer support directly here:

In my boat is a Clarion CMD6 head unit with two rear CMQ1620R speakers, it distorts at medium to high volume, you cant turn it up load when going.Wishing to put two new speakers in the front, cannot cut...

Best bet is to take your boat to a qualified Marine Audio dealer (generally not a boat repair shop or marina), or to a good quality Car audio store that is insured to work on boats (separete insurance usually).
When it comes to boats, you need lots of power and speakers.
First thing to do is make sure what you have is properly installed. Then determine what is "distorting" .. is it too much base, purely volume or what.
Most boats we do (wakeboard style and river boats) we do: 40-75 watts RMS per speaker 4-6 speakers in boat 1 10" or 12" sub with 200-300 watts RMS Tower speaker if requested with 75-125 Watts RMS per speaker

Removing grill covers of Clarion 6.5" marine speakers

Put a piece of cardboard next to the speaker to protect your boats finish. Then use a flat bladed screw driver to gently pry the grill covers off. you may need to work your way around the perimeter, with a little bit of effort it will pop off. There will be 4 screws under the grills holding the speaker to the boat which are easy to remove.
