1. Is the head unit powering the speakers directly or through an amp?
2. What ohm load (4,8,) per channel and how many speakers?
3. Does it do it with the bass set all the way down?

If you have access to a voltmeter see what the voltage is on the yellow and black wires when it is diming. It should be stable ~ 13.5v with car on. if its < 10v when dimming either there is:

1. Shorted speaker lead.
2. Bad ground to radio.
3. loose power feed to radio.
4. Ohm load below 4 ohms, causing the eccess current draw.

I have a Magnavox stereo console: Astrosonic Series. The record player was playing fine until a month ago. The volume is now so low you can hardly hear the record playing


Since the volume of the radio seems to be fine it is doubtful that the amplifier is malfunctioning. I will check the stylus to see that it's fully seated and examine the wires in the tonearm that connect to the cartridge. If they seem okay then I suspect the cartridge may be bad

Start playing and then increase volume. When you are on a different screen, volume increase or decrease doesn't apply to iTunes.

  1. Check if the TV and Amplifier (if connected) is turned on and set correctly.
  2. Check if the TV, DVD player and Amplifier are connected properly.
  3. Make sure the TV, DVD player and Amplifier volume are not set to Mute.
  4. There will be no sound output during Reverse Play / Pause / Step / Slow / Search.
  5. If the DTS soundtrack is enabled in the DVD Disc Menu, but you are using Stereo Analog audio, the sound will not work. Try switching the soundtrack to Dolby 5.1 or PCM mode in the Disc Menu.

How do i calibrate my powered subwoofer for my car


OK assuming you are referring to after market sub and amp whether or not added to factory head unit (stereo). #1 start your engine, and have your amp adjusting knobs accessible #2 insert a CD of the most listened to type of music (Rock,rap,classic) #3 adjust your stereo volume to YOUR max preferred db level with your amp levels at the lowest settings possible #4 start by increasing your freq. rang by 2 bands at a time then the same with gain, once you have gotten your bass to the level you like with out distorting or popping try increasing your bass boost (if available) till your preferred sound(may need to back off gain and freq. add bass boost accordingly until you like what you hear.play around with it for a while make sure you do this at the peak volume in which YOU listen to music because if you do it at a low volume and then turn it up you can blow your equipment . side not 8''in is for very fast bass reps, 10''in is for average rock and 12''s 15''s 22''s are for your low long deep bass reps such as rap and R&B anything else just e-mail me

I have the JBL gto 601.1 apm its a 2 channel, i hook them up to 2 12 kickers, the amp will play the subs properly ONLY at low volume and the amp will spit and choke on high volume ( meaning that it will go...


ok first off bbbman78 is wrong!!! second off that amp is not a 2 channel amp!!!! i have the exact same set up as u do. an i was having the same issue. i discovered that the subs were not wired to the amp correct because the amp is a class D mono amp. and it does have 2 sets of terminals to wire subs to, but it is actually a 1 channel amp! ok if u have the 2 ohm dvc (dual voice coil) wire them like in this linkhttp://a248.e.akamai.net/pix.crutchfield.com/ca/learningcenter/car/subwoofer_wiring/2DVC_2-ohm_mono.jpg
if u have the 4 ohm dvc wire them like in this linkhttp://a248.e.akamai.net/pix.crutchfield.com/ca/learningcenter/car/subwoofer_wiring/2DVC_4-ohm_mono.jpg
once u wire them correctly.....crank it up and enjoy!!

Volume stays low won't increase


Your volume limit on your ipod is probably set low. To check it, go all of the way to the ipod's main menu and go to settings. Then go to volume limit and put it where you would like it to be if it is too low. Then go back to your music and play it. Turn the volume up to your liking and it should work and play louder.

Volume display seems backward


This is because the volume knob on ANY stereo is actually an attenuator.  Meaning, the stereo would play at full blast (way too loud!) if left to it's own limits of power, so your volume knob is actually "dialing down" the power, or when fully turned up, letting it all flow.
The reason that the numbers change like that is it's showing you how much attenuation is happening in decibels, or dB, so for insTance, when it's at "-30" that's a pretty decent volume, but at "-5" it's much louder and your neighbors might complain.  I think you'll notice that it can be cranked to something like "+5" which on my AVR 100 will blow the speakers.
In other words, this is normal, so relax and enjoy the music!

HELP PLEASE


Probably, but don't buy this stereo! It has a lifespan of about 6 months. I am not the only person to have had the same series of events happen with my VR-3 stereo. The same breakdowns I had, were mentioned by other customers on www.vr-3.com. The usb, and SD slots will breakdown. I have played my MP3 player throught the Auxiliary port, (which would be the way you play youe ipod) but the sound quality is not great. It requires that you turn the mp3 unit up to full, and increase the volume on the car stereo significantly, and still not great sound. I am actually planning to contact Target where I purchased mine, and reccomend they drop the product.
