FM Modulator.

(clarion makes a hardwire direct connect one)

FM200

You would use a 3.5mm to RCA adapter

I have a Clarion installed in my boat. Sirrius, cd - 8655a90.jpg
There are also battery powerd ones (Belkin)

Either one is used by simply tuning in to an empty (white noise) radio station.

Im assuming the XMD3-RET is not the radio you are inquiring about since you described Sirius as a feature.

Some clarion radios have an AUX input or changer port that can be converted to an ipod cable.

If you reply with a model # i can look it up for you. I am a Clarion Dealer.

I have a JBL MR 15 does this radio have a place in the back to plug in an ipod adapter. I think it is an Aux input RCA Jack The radio is on my boat and not near for me to look at it.


if it has aux input rca's, then go to an electronics or car audio shop and buy a "stereo rca to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter cable" This will then plug into the headphone jack on the ipod.

Is there a way to wire in for an ipod


Only way would be via a FM modulator which I would not recommend. There is no Aux input cable or port on the XMD2.

I would recommend upgrading to a newer model with full ipod control and charging capabilities. Any Clarion dealer can help you with that.

Disconnect all the speaker leads and then hook one speaker (a new, known to work speaker) up directly to the radio using a short (6"-12") piece of speaker wire. Does that speaker work then?

Look for a earphone socket to which the ipod can be plugged into like the headphone out into this input if there is no RCA jacks at the rear of the set as the aux input.

Clarion radio sound flickers


make sure your wirings are rated to handle the current needed by your radio. You might have a large voltage drop when it is at high volume level because it will draw lots of current. You might need to change the size of your wires to your Clarion. Check the voltage near the radio when it starts to flicker if it goes below the source voltage of 12V. hope this helps

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.

Satellite radio controls


FixYa,
I went back to "Best Buy" installers and they quickley pointed out that I had pressed the scan button, and that it was still activated.
I pushed the scan button again, that turned it off, and the new sirrius satellite radio is now working perfectally.
"Thanks"
Jack
