My new Clarion CMD6 stereo won't stay powered up.

My new Clarion CMD6 marine stereo for my boat won't stayed powered up. You turn it on and it starts through its system checker, then power goes off aftera couple seconds. Then it comes back on for a couple, then off again, n agon, forever. It will never stay powered up. Any thoughts?

If all power and ground are good to go then the unit needs to be fixed. Being that it is more likely to "see" moisture, it may have water shorting out the circuits.

In my boat is a Clarion CMD6 head unit with two rear CMQ1620R speakers, it distorts at medium to high volume, you cant turn it up load when going.Wishing to put two new speakers in the front, cannot cut...


Best bet is to take your boat to a qualified Marine Audio dealer (generally not a boat repair shop or marina), or to a good quality Car audio store that is insured to work on boats (separete insurance usually).
When it comes to boats, you need lots of power and speakers.
First thing to do is make sure what you have is properly installed. Then determine what is "distorting" .. is it too much base, purely volume or what.
Most boats we do (wakeboard style and river boats) we do: 40-75 watts RMS per speaker 4-6 speakers in boat 1 10" or 12" sub with 200-300 watts RMS Tower speaker if requested with 75-125 Watts RMS per speaker

Red = switched power
black = ground (earth)
yellow = bat power (on)

blue white striped antenna turn on

solid blue remote turn on for amp


(speakers)
(all will have one with black/white stripe if all sets have black = ground if all sets white = hot/+

green = rear
( cant remember left/right)
purple = rear

white = left front

Red = Right front

all of this should be on the bottom of the stereo

My Clarion APX480M marine amp cuts out at random


try to unplug each speaker one by one while playing it. There can be a defective speaker that grounds out at the speaker terminal or internally causing the amp to go into protection causing all the speakers to go out.

No power


Do you have the manual. I have the same model installed on my BMW 1100RT motorcycle and it requires two power hookups. One senses the ignition is turned on and the other is the power up from power source. If the ignition power wire isn't connected, the unit will not powerup. You can however, connect both of these power wires to bypass the ignition switch. This ignition switch is used so you don't kill your batter by accident. I'm sure that wouldn't be good on a boat. Good luck!

Is this considered clipping in marine boat stereo help!!!!


if your radio is puiing more power your ground might not be good enough, use the same spot but remove the ground and rough it up a little on the base with some sand paper or add a metal o ring to get a better ground.
