    Same problem. I noticed I could get it to work if my switch line was BELOW 11.75 volts. With the car running, lights on, AC on, fan on high, I could switch on my rear window defogger and it would come on. As soon as I turned the fan down or the AC off, sound was gone again. With the car off I could turn on my lights or turn the fan spped up or even the 4 way flashers and it would come on. I could understand if it worked with a higher voltage and not with it low. I will keep working on it and let you know if I find anything out.

    My 03 corolla is having the same exact issue. My friend has a 06 xb and he had the same problem. What he did was tie in a 12v zenor diode to the power out on the clarion eq. this fixed his issue but not mine. My friend also has a late 90s 4 runner and he doesn't have this issue

    Had the same problem here. A quick fix I found was to disconnect the EQ from the +12v line coming from the battery and supply power by connecting the Remote lead to both REM and +12v ports on the EQ (a simple wire bridging the two did the trick). EQS746 works great now.

I had the same problem with mine I had an old Kenwood EQ hooked up an it worked fine. Then I hooked up the clarion EQ the same way and I had power but no sound. I took it out and exchange it for another one and the same thing, no sound. I don't know why my Kenwood would work in my car but the Clarion wouldn't. I could use some help too.

Head unit connect

You will only be able to use this EQ on the front or the rear speakers. You will have to get another EQ if you think you need one. Usually, the front speakers of a car's audio system are the smallest and the rears are larger. You really do not want an EQ on the subs. If it was mine, I would hook the EQ between the head unit and the rear speakers. If you feel this does not sound right, you may need, but I doubt it very much, to get another EQ for the front speakers. Good Luck

Back rear speaker wont play when singled out. more details inside

I would suggest you mdisconnect the rear speakers from the amp, take a 9volt battery and click te speakers on at a time. If proble duplicated, the you have the left speaker tied to the right somewhere.

maybe youre voltage is dropping? is it when your bass hits real hard or when you turn up the music real loud? or when ur using ur headlights, a/c and stuff like that? or maybe you just have a bad connection? id would check the connection first then id sit in a parking lot figuring what is on when it cuts off. then id cut off one accessory at a time to see. if your voltage is dropping you can get a new alternator or battery. just go to your local advanced auto store and have them check it. my email is m1chae11ane123@yahoo if u have any other questions. sorry u waited so long but i just found this site.

How can i get my power to my EQ?

What kind of eq is it? First thing I would do is hook up the +12 and GND to the same place the amp is hooked up. I think the eq is having a hard time getting ample current, therefore shutting off all the way when the bass hits. Caps are good, but second battery and battery isolator are far superior.

Cannot hook eq to my receiver

The speakers will not sound right. You dont have two tape monitors on this receiver? You can simply use the tape otput to the EQ input, and then the Tape monitor input to the EQ output leads. Good Luck
