Question about Clarion XMD3

Open Question

I purchased a Sea Ray Sundeck with a Clarion System. The boat is slightly used but immaculate. My front left speaker would not come on. Then after I tried to adjust the various controls but now I have no front right or left back speaker. Only one of four are turned on. What have I shut off and how do I realign the system. I can't find anything in the manual that explains the speaker balance etc. I am sure the younger generation would have no problem at the age of 59 I am sure I am out of touch. Help!!1

    just to make clear... do you hear the sound out of only one speaker whatever the balance controle is adjusted to? or do you hear like that:
    front-left + rear right
    or
    front-right + rear left
    ?

Look for loose or broken wiring connections. Swap front and rear speakers wires at radio and determine if problem is the radio or the speaker system.

I need a wiring diagram to hook up a new radio.


First you will need to get a wire harness for your specific make, model & year of car. This will interface the car wiring plug to your new clarion headunit.

Next you will connect the wires from your purchased wire harness to the wires of your Clarion Headunit. Using **** connectors with a wire crimper is the best way to do so.

Here is a wire color coding guide for the wires on your Clarion headunit:

P o w e r Memory (+12v Constant) Yellow Ignition (+12v Switched) Red Ground (-) Black Dimmer Pink/White (Alpine only) Power Antenna Blue Amplifier Turn-on Blue/White Phone Mute Light Blue (Sony only) S p e a k e r s Right Front (+) Gray Right Front (-) Gray/Black Left Front (+) White Left Front (-) White/Black Right Rear (+) Violet Right Rear (-) Violet/Black Left Rear (+) Green Left Rear (-) Green/Black

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

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?

Removing grill covers of Clarion 6.5" marine speakers


Put a piece of cardboard next to the speaker to protect your boats finish. Then use a flat bladed screw driver to gently pry the grill covers off. you may need to work your way around the perimeter, with a little bit of effort it will pop off. There will be 4 screws under the grills holding the speaker to the boat which are easy to remove.

You can purchase a small package of crimp connectors for the electrical connections. If the wires are exposed, you can connect them using this following list of connections.
These are the CAR's wiring (not the radio unit)
Car Radio Battery Constant 12v+ Wire: Orange
Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: Yellow
Car Radio Ground Wire: Black
Car Radio Illumination Wire: Gray
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: Brown
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Pink
Car Stereo Amp Trigger Wire: N/A
Car Stereo Amplifier Location: N/A
Car Audio Front Speakers Size: 4′ x 6′
Car Audio Front Speakers Location: Dash
Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Tan
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Gray
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Light Green
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Dark Green
Car Audio Rear Speakers Size: 6′ x 9′
Car Audio Rear Speakers Location: Rear Deck
Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Yellow
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Dark Blue
Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Light Blue
Look on the owner's instructions for the radio, the wiring diagram should be there. If not you can visit the clarion website with the radio model number to get the color codes for the radio wiring..
Simply crimp each to the correct corresponding wire. You may have a few extra.. the antenna power, or the radio mute.. just cap the ends of these..
