Make sure all speakers that are hooked up sound ok. If any of them sound lower then the others or sound distorted you may have a speaker with a partially shorted voice coil. If speaker or speakers pop when power is first applied you may have a grounded speaker that should not be grounded. Each speaker wire rides on 6vdc and if any speaker sees a ground you will have 6v across voice coil which would explain any popping noise when first turned on and radio may play for awhile then overheat. be sure speakers are 4 ohm min per ch otherwise amp will run to hot.

I have a Clarion XMD2 Marine radio. When I play the radio or a CD, there is a low level "static" sound that plays over the music. I thought the power feeds or ground were bad, but direct wired...

I didn't suspect that the fault came from the speakers but in the unit itself. This kind of symptoms indicated of faulty electrolytic capacitor in the power supply section and/or in the sound output circuitry. To isolate it, you must have a capacitor checker to determine its condition or you may replaced all the electrolytic capacitor in your unit because this is only few in the set and very cheap price per piece. Just remember that you must replaced it with same capacitance and working voltage that is labelled in the body. Also, upon installing, you must check the polarity (positive and negative side) to avoid further damaged.
Also, check for bad solder joints(crack/dried/cold solder) in the board, it will produced the same symptoms.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Trying to install into a 2002 Tahoe. Everything works except I get no sound. I looked up wiring diagrams but nothing shows a factory amp. Stereo works fine I installed it into mustang just to make sure.

Here is the wiring diagram. The factory amplifier is behind the glove compartment on the right. Just open the glove compartment, push in the right side so it swings down (take things out of it first), and the amp is right there.

Sound problem

what model is this? the very first thing i would do is make very sure you dont have a speaker wire shorting out on metal/rubbing/2 wires touchung togther somewhere. this is very bad. If this is a vrx935 id also try wiggling the "din" cord (its a blue cord with about 20 wires inside) between the brain and thwe head unit with the cd playing.. if the audio cuts in/out while wiggling that cord youve found your problem. If you cant figure it out and get sick of it i do buy old clarion dvd players for parts id love it for parts. let me know how it goes! mike
