Question about iLO XM-MP3-CD Car Stereo

1 Answer

Installing two speakers on a wakeboard rack. Tested the speakers after they were installed on the rack to make sure the wires weren't pinch inside. (good to go) Installed the Amp, running the power wire to the Battery along with the ground. I ran the Rca Cables from the deck to the amp along with the Remote wire so the amp will turn on and off when the deck (head unit) turns on and off. Connected the spearkers to the amp. Everything was connected like it said in the instructions. So once finished i turned the deck on and the amp turned on. So far everything is working. However, as soon as i start playing music (radio, cd, ipod) only the speakers in the boat work. Not the ones running off the amp? Running a 4 channel 600watt apm. Vapour speakers and the proper wiring kit for marine audio. Any clue why i can't get sound?

I put pre wired ape hangers on my 98 fatboy, and everything works fine except the horn comes on as soon as I turn the key on. I checked and all the wires match up

Check to make sure the wire is not pinched or the button is not engaged. I had the same problem when installing my T-Bars and found that the wire was pinched when installing the controls. Hope this helps

High pitched noise coming from speakers after installing stereo

check your wires if they are too near some big power wires and move them away from these high powered wires or check your grounds and make sure its a good ground by scrapping the connection until bare metal. Also its a possibility rca's or wires are getting pinched or not fully connected.
