Question about Car Audio & Video

I recently bought a boat with a Clarion ''premium'' sound system. The radio turns on but only the front 2 speakers work. The back four have nothing? Any ideas? Is it the radio itself, the amp, or both? Thanks for the assistance.

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?

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.

Help with install on clarion vrx935vd


I love Clarion
1st RED is + direct to battery
Yellow is + pwr to ignition so when you turn the car off the radio can still say on if you choose
black is - and ground
these are importantant first. once you have pwr you can easily work out which of the 8 other wires are pairs 2 frnt spkrs and 2 back speakers if theres 2 extra plugs for the amp or woofer(if screws run a nice thick speaker wire. But with Clarion I dont beleive you need an amp or woofer thats how good they are just have kickass speakers frnt an back
you should be able 2 find the pwr cables from the existin radio if not the yellow wire leads to the igniton and you can run a red wire staight to the battery and screw the black wire to the metal chasis(oh the blue wire is for a pwr antenna or aux and is not needed unless youve got a pwr antenna.
your speaker color code will be like eg.grey and grey with white stripe,will be one pair green another pair ,but the 4 spker pairs are skinner than th pwr cables
Spkrs have a + and - too the difference is you cant blow the spkr by trial and error its just if its wrong it will sound muffled so try both ways then youll know whats best. pwr must be correct make sure red on red and blacks on black then press on then play with your speakers then find the yellow cable that runs to the ignition then to the radio so when you turn the ign the radio comes on and when you turn the motor off you can turn the radio on cos youve also got a direct to battery connection.
Man you are gonna love your sound system
Im happy for you

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.

No sound.


Disconnect speakers one by one and reset the unit each time. If the speaker is blown, or the wires are frayed, it will shut down the internal amp. Also check the fuse in the back of the radio first, it should be near the wire harness. Power cycle the unit as well, unplug it from the power source, plug it back in. Hope this helps.
