Question about Car Audio Receivers
When I turned my Clarion M255 off two weeks ago it was working perfectly. Yesterday when I turned it on there was no sound. I can turn the volume up to 33 and not a trace of sound. I put a CD in to test it and the CD ran but no sound. The speakers are connected and the connection to the unit from the speakers is fine. Why no sound?
SOURCE: NO SOUND FROM CLARION XMD3
I have a XMD3 with Sirius on a Larson boat. Had same problem - everything seemed to be fine on unit (everything lit up and CD showed different tracks and time changing), but no sound. I suspected a ground problem and checked wires I could see. Found one speaker wire that had been frayed due to faulty installation. As soon as I wiggled that wire I got sound on all speakers. Not sure why one faulty speaker would kill all sound, but it did for me.

does it keep cutting in and out?
if so i think you have your polarities crossed
make sure you have negative to negative positive to positive

first off the amp gets power straight from the battery. the amp is used to power the subs. the subs are suppose to be connected to the amp only( never the speakers).
for the second part you mostlikely killed the wires. you should get some one to look at it and check the wires. thee speakers might need to be re-wired

Your head unit is 50 watts X 4 channel maximum power and 21 watts RMS so it's possible that all you need is more power to the speakers. But even 21 watts RMS should be enough for normal speakers. Before investing in an amp, I'd check the speakers and their wiring. Measure the impedance (resistance) at the head unit side to see if they match up.
Hope this helps.
