Question about Clarion DXZ655MP CD Player

1 Answer

Clarion DXZ655MP Speakers worked then stopped...

I bought this unit brand new, and it worked for about 30 mins then the speakers wouldn't work anymore... the external amp did, but not the internal amp. I disconnected the external completely thinking this was the cause, it wasn't. So I accepted that it was broken, and sent it back... I received the exchange, stereo worked great for about 2-1/2 weeks, and then same problem again! It was soo weird, after 1-1/2 weeks it started to act like it did when this happened the first time, so i turned the volume down, and it resumed fine, and then 1/2 a week later it happened again, only this time it was permanent! I shut off the car, went on inside, came out the next day started the car, and no sound, no nothing! What was going on? Nothing chaged from the day before, it just stopped working all of a sudden. I am afraid that I won't be able to send the item back again, so I want to figure out how to fix the problem if possible. Book says it is the sound protection circuit, and I should turn the stereo off and back on and it will reset. I did that 100 times! All it does when I turn it back on, the speakers just click, and no sound at all! Book says if problem persists to contact tech team. Anyone have a similar problem? A solution is much begged for! I finally got the stereo I always wanted, and now it doesn't work, and clarions are good stereos so what happened to mine? Thanks!

Re: Clarion DXZ655MP Speakers worked then stopped...

Sounds like the ohm load of your speakers is incorrect and overloaded the amp,....check all your specs, i.e. max, min ohm load on stereo, and speakers,...this stuff is important and must be within the range allowed or stuff like your experiencing happens,'s happened to me before,.....fried my amp because i had house speakers in my van, was great for about 3 loud days,....good luck, cracklin joe,.......

Clarion DXZ655mp won't accept or eject cd's. I've checked the manual with no luck. Can anyone tell me what is wrong and how to fix it?

It is internal and will have to be sent in for repair, or buy a new unit. Some electronic shops in your area may do repair and if not send it into the manufacturer. May cost more than purchasing another unit after shipping and etc.

Need to know what wire colours r what on the harness of a Clarion DXZ635MP CD player lost manual

Your ground wire is going to be black. Your normal wire colors are violet and violet/black, green and green/black, white and white/black, last but not least you have grey and grey/black. Those are your speaker wires. Solid blue is usually to power your antenna, and blue/white is for your amp turn on lead. Those two wires are approximately .5mV of power, and you can actually use either one to turn an amp on. Speakers: normally your solid color is positive, while the black stripe is your negative. As for which one goes to which speaker, left front is white, right front is gray, left rear is green, and right rear is violet. Hope this helps.

Clarion XMD3

This is typically the output IC not working. This can be due to a speaker short. The unit will need to be repaired or replaced.

Volume issues with clarion M309 installed on a boat

Hello jcox7704,

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.

Installed a clarion radio it powers up but no music thru speakers

sounds like a short in your wiring to your speakers the best thing to do to check this is run a speaker wire directly to the speaker from the stereo check it that way and see if it works.If that don't work it's the wires on the stereo connection.The speaker wires on most aftermarket stereos are mostly colored 2 of each green,purple,white & grey.

No volume

The Bose system in the Z is wired to control the entire car's speakers. Each speaker has its own amplifier, and the OEM head unit puts out a line-level signal to each amp. Your Clarion unit puts out speaker-level signal (in effect, an amplified signal), into the Bose amps, and it's probably overdriving them and putting them into shutdown.

Your best bet is to replace the Bose speakers with aftermarket speakers meant for a speaker-level drive (which is what I did in my Z, and never once regretted it). If you do so, you'll need to run new wires to the speakers, or if you use the OEM wiring, you'll need to unplug the amps and run the wires from the amp harnesses directly to the new speakers. I think there is an adapter harness you can use that will tap into the line-out jacks on your Clarion, so that a line-level signal can be sent to the Bose speakers - I'd do a google search for "Metra harness 300zx" or something along those lines (Metra makes the lineout harness adapters - I use one in my Audi).
