Sounds like you need to check your speakers and/speaker wires to make sure you don't have a short to ground or bad speaker. if those check out, you may have a bad output ic inside of the deck.

Hi. I was just looking over the amp i have. Its a Boschmann 2500FX,300watt I was just woundering what the: GRD, B+ and REM stands for. If you could help me it would be good Thank you


GRD is ground, or negative, B+ is battery+ or positive, REM is remoter turn on and is used to turn the amp on. Most aftermarket radios use the blue/white wire to turn an amplifier on. On rare occaisions where there is just a blue wire, that would be the wire to turn your amp on.

Radio works but cd plays with no sound


you probably have your amp hooked up to your power antenna remote. there should be another blue wire (probably blue with a white stripe) that is for amp remote.

My clarion cd player in my boat was working fine now it says amp grd. I have looked but i see nothing unhooked what can i do to get sound out of my speakers?


Remove all the speaker wires.

Power the radio back on and verify it is not the radio at fault.

If it powers up, check the speakers with a Digital Multimeter set to OHMS 20x.

Each speaker should have a resistance of 4 ohms. (or 8 in some cases)

Any variance (+/- .5ohms) means the voicecoil is blown, and replace that speaker.

Only door speakers have sound on the cd mode


the amp requires a 12 volt power constant, and a 12 volt "on" signal. you prolly have the 12 v "on" hooked up to the car stereo's antennae remote, meaning your amp gets power when the radio is on, cuase the radio is sending a signal to the amp (thinking that it is sending a signal to the antennae to raise)

you do have one of those collapsable antennas, right?

Installed and no sound or nothing


Im guessing you have an amplifier if not check the cd player ground " AMP GRD" means amp ground is faulty. In the event that you do have an amplifier check that ground wire as it's most likely the problem.

Eclipse CD2000 has no sound from a cd or sirius... radio works


If you have an amplifier hooked up make sure that the correct blue wire on the harness is connected. One of the wires is the remote amp turn-on, the other is for a power antenna. That would be why your radio plays through your speakers, the power antenna wire' when the source is set to radio, sends a 12 volt signal. That would turn on your amp if thats the way that its hooked up.
