Re: Sound problem

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. Just a few Guesses

Clarion CZ101A does not make a sound anymore. Has power to the unit (12.2v) and all functions but no sound at all.

If you have a fuse go out it is an indication that something is very wrong. The fuse is only there to help make sure that it doesn't catch on fire.
Unless you have the tools, meters, experience and you are good with a soldering iron you probably should consider taking it to the shop or just replace the unit... it most likely would be cheaper and easier than messing with it.

Sound cuts out- cable tv

I had the same problem when I installed the new HD Comcast cable box (DCH3200), initially with my CRT through RF, then with my HDTV through HDMI. Problem solved when I replaced the box with the Comcast RNG110 I got from my local Comcast. It is a neat miniaturized box and it works extremely well on HD. There is no power switch on the box so before activation do not forget to put it on with the remote (cable, power, the green light will come on).

Auto amplifier

It depends on if you want it to be able to play really loud and really clear. The deck will probably drive them pretty good on its own but when you really crank on some head decks the sound can start distortring.
Wheres the sub it the package?
Get a less powerfull, 50 Watt X4, amp and get a decent sub with a mono amp or they have all in one 4.1 channel amps. To drive the whole system and keep it easy.
Have fun
