Question about Clarion XMD3-RET AM/FM MARINE CD PLAYER

Open Question

No ipod connection

Same problem: I have a Clarion Marine Magi 2 CENET XMD3 in my boat.

I was thinking about solving the problem with the 3.5mm to RCA adapter as a solution, but I was wondering if there was any way that I could hookup my ipod so that it would charge as well as play through the sound system (or does that only work for certain ipods?). I'm concerned that if I use the 3.5mm adapter, then the battery will run out quickly and I don't want to run cables everywhere. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: connecting my ipod to xmd3

I believe that if you use the RCA connectors, you can use your iPod. If you use the clarion cca connector, you get more functionality from the dash of the clarion.

SOURCE: can i connect ipod adaptor to rca output jacks?

With out an input jack you cannot connect straight to your head unit. The RCA out puts only send a signal out. Your best bet is use an FM transmitter for your Ipod. The sound wont be as good but I can't think of another way with buying a new head unit.

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.

Clarion Marine Problem w Sirius CeNet Unit


When a CD changer or Sirius satellite receiver is added to a system, the source unit’s main wiring harness must be disconnected before the changer and/or satellite receiver’s CeNET cable is connected to the source unit. Otherwise, the source unit will not “recognize” that a CD changer or Sirius satellite receiver has been added.

I have a Clarion installed in my boat. Sirrius, cd am fm. No jack to plug in iPod. Solution?


FM Modulator.

(clarion makes a hardwire direct connect one)

FM200

You would use a 3.5mm to RCA adapter

There are also battery powerd ones (Belkin)

Either one is used by simply tuning in to an empty (white noise) radio station.

Im assuming the XMD3-RET is not the radio you are inquiring about since you described Sirius as a feature.

Some clarion radios have an AUX input or changer port that can be converted to an ipod cable.

If you reply with a model # i can look it up for you. I am a Clarion Dealer.

Yes, there are 2 Red RCA jacks on the back. A $10 cable from radion shack, 2 RCA on one end and a 3mm jack on the other.
Cheap way to do it, there is also a device you can buy from Clarion that will do it for about $90 that gives you more control from the radio.

Bottom line is that boats are a hrsh environment for electronics. Moisture, salt, and vibration all conspire to undo solder joints and electrical connections. 4 years is a pretty good life span on a boat. A solder connection within the unit could have let go. A good repair shop could probably fis the bad connection but you can probably replace the unit for less.
