Re: tuner wont save settings

Hi Matt1983,

You must have Battery + power on both the Yellow wire at all times. To get the Radio to operate, you need power on the red and yellow wire. Battery neg(-) is also imprtant, Besure your Black wire is definitly connected to the frame of the care and you can read voltage from the supply power to the black wire. Sometimes you have to remove paint from the area you connect the Black wire.

Clarion NZ500 installed - will not retain any settings each time it is turned off and on (i.e., radio station settings, volume, etc.)..

Check if the yellow wire is connected to a 12 volt direct source,because this wire feed the memory back up of the stereo good luck

How to get the dvd player to play threw my truck speakers?

if you dvd play came with a wireless fm modulator read the owner manual and set up the fm station to get it to work . if it does not have a built in fm modulator you need to buy one.

the pull out your radio and run power to the fm modulator and then connect the factory anntenna to one side of modulator and the other side goes back to your factory antenna location at radio . then set the fm station you set for the fm modulator run a set of rca cables from the fm modulator to the dvd flip screen and it should work . i would think your flip screen dvd play would have a built in fm modulator that is wireless .

PXA-H700 optimum set up...

The way the EQ is hooked up is correct.

You set the factory radio to a set level, then use the volume on the EQ for everyday adjustments.

I believe your problem lies in the amplification.
Your BOSE amplifier was made to run a 4 channel 8ohm stero load.
Low powered - high in sound quality.

You have swapped the factory 8 ohm speakers (15W) for 4 ohm power hungry ones.
Now the amplifier is working harder to produce the same output.

You would be best served eliminating the factory amplifier and getting 1 good 4 or 5 channel amp to power your speakers.

a 4 channel amplifier could be used stereo (left and right) on channels 1 and 2, (2ohm stereo load)
and bridge channels 3 and 4 for your subwoofer.

For a true surround sound - a 5 channel amplifier could run each speaker individually, and the 5th channel is reserved for the subwoofer.

a small dedicated 75wx4 channel amplifier with built in crossover, and level gain controls - would blow your socks off. It is 200x better than the factory 12Watt amplifier. Your ears will love you for it :D

If you need more help - just let me know.

Your radio will require one of the following procedures.

Type 1
During the code request mode, while holding the DISP key depressed, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds (so that “…” disappears).
Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 2
Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on face of radio at the same time. The four dash lines ( . . . . ) should "disappear".

Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 3
Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030
Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset key (preset keys are the buttons on face of radio for storing you "favorite" radio stations). "C" should display.
Then using your remote, enter your code.

Enter your number from the remote control unit. Your code number is 5227 (KCAR)

* Press numeric key “5” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “2” ( 3 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “2” ( 1 time ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “7” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key

The security is canceled and the set enters the TUNER mode!
