Factory speakers usually have low resistance ( 2 ohm) When replacing speakers with aftermarket, most aftermarket speakers will be 4 ohm. If you want the same sound you may have to buy some resistors to put on the speakers (across the + and -). By putting a 4 ohm resistor across the connectors will now make the speaker 2 ohms which in effect will raise the volume. Depending in what vehicle you replaced the speakers the resistance will vary.

You may want to check your rear speaker wires are any of the : + and - crossed. This could cause the same result.

Sony CDX-5005 factory installed in a Bryant boat... no out put in any mode to speakers. What replacement unit will fit and hook up to existing harness?


Any DIN style radio will fit onto the existing cut out.
Stay with Sony CDX family. The connect and color code will be the same.

Str-de545 sony not putting out sound to rear speakers


From page 46 (Troubleshooting)-

No sound or only a very low-level sound is heard from the rear speakers.

>>> Make sure the sound field function is on (press SOUND FIELD - MODE).

>>> Select a sound field containing the word "cinema" or "virtual" (see pages 28-30).

>>> Adjust the speaker volume (see page 19).

>>> Make sure the rear speaker size parameter is set to either SMALL or LARGE (see page 17).

Rear speakers L and R not working and MD in and out not working on my Sony STR-DB940


I'm guessing these are separate issues.

Has either one ever worked and stopped suddenly?

From the manual:
"No sound or only a very low level sound is heard from the rear speakers.
>>> Make sure the sound field function is on (press SOUND FIELD - MODE).
>>> Select a sound field containing the word "cinema" or "virtual" (see page 33-35).
>>> Adjust the speaker volume (see page 72).
>>> Make sure the rear speaker size parameter is set to either SMALL or LARGE (see page 20)."

Be advised that using any Tape Monitor loop (that's what the MD/DAT is) disables any digital sources. Not that that would explain the rear speaker failure. Analog sources can still be processed into various surround modes.

Any Tape Monitor use requires at least a live INPUT to hear anything.

Sony cdx m610 resets itself at half volume


You have a shorted speaker or speaker wire. If a wire is touching metal lightly it may not have full continuity (short) and will work until more voltage (volume) is sent to the speaker and causes the short. Disconnect all speakers at the radio then turn the unit back on. Turn up the volume and see if it cuts out. If it stays on, re-connect speakers one at a time and test. Once you find the problem speaker, disconnect the wire at the speaker then test again. This will eliminate the speaker itself as the problem. Test again. If it still shorts, trace the wire from dash to speaker and look for a cut in the sheathing exposing the wire. Repair or replace the wire and you should be good to go. If the unit cuts out with all speakers disconnected, the problem is internal and will need to be serviced. Before you repair/ or replace the unit either check all the wiring and the speakers or have someone do it for you so it does not give you a repeat performance. Hope this helps.

I own a Sony-Ericsson P1i. Its sound volume is very low and though I have kept it on the maximum, I can barely hear the opposite person talking to me. But the music volume is okay, and so is the headphone...


I had this problem too but i found this on the web so i'm gonna copy paste . Good luck!
"The low volume in the in calls in SE P1 / P1i can be easily solved in this way/hack:
(Thanks to montsma, the Junior Member AT noeman.org)

Speaker volume in P1i Service Menu

Go to the Main Menu > Phone > Phone to open the virtual numeric keyboard.

Do the following;

- 1 click up on jog dial and press (*)
- 2 clicks down on jog dial and press (*)
- 1 click down on jog dial and press (*)

to open the hidden Service Menus part of the phone.

Then go to the Service Tests > Speakers.

There are two selections, rear and front, and the "front" adjusts the volume of the ear speaker, which is used during the calls. Increase the volume to %100. Quit the Service Menus and make your call. I made one try and it was cool!"

Rear speakers


If have a VOM check for voltage at the amp. If not, a cheap trouble light (often in cheap tool bin) will tell if have voltage. this will tell if the problem is the head unit or the amp or wiring.

Occasionally the remote wire will have a fuse in line.
