Sea ray boat Clarion stereo and amp

If you turn off the power to the boat for a long time the stereo will come on but I dont think the amp comes back on, is there a reset for the stereo or Amp?

Unless a fuse is blown, there's a problem with the wiring or you have a defective component, there's no reason the amp shouldn't come on. You need to confirn that you have the proper voltage at the amp.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Sounds like you have a lot of equipment on your boat, cool. But you need to think about the load you are putting on the battery. If you don't have a way to charge the battery back up, you just keep getting the power lower and lower the more you play. Also, with that much draw, it probably doesn't take long before you experience this. Unless your engine is internal and has an alternator to it to recharge the electrical system. This will keep happening. A couple of choices you can make. Either downgrade your system to something that has less draw (definitely ditch the 1000w amp and sub), or you can put more batteries in your boat. Kinetik makes great audio batteries, but regardless of how many you put in your boat, there has to be a way to recharge them. You will probably need to recharge the battery after every use. Hope this helps

take a digital volt meter and check the power cable and ground on the amp to see if you are getting any power . should read 12.5 or more if no power then check fuses and the ground connection

if you have power then replace the equipment that not working

if the protect light comes on then you might not have enough voltage running to the amp so you would need to add a second battery just for that amp.

TAKE IT OUT AND TRY IT ON A 12V BATERRY AND IF IT TURNS ON ITS GOOD AND IF IT DOESNT IS NOT GOOD. IF IT TURNS ON FOLLOW UR CONSTAN AND UR POWER WIRES AND SEE IF IT HAS A FUSE BOX IN THE BOAT/ CHECK THOSE FUSES. AND CHECK UR BOAT BATTERY TOO CAUSE IT COULD HAVE DIED WHEN TESTING THE STEREO TOO IT HAPPENS ALOT ON BOATS

If a boat is anything like a car, the amp's negative post should not be connected to the battery, but to the ground of the boat. In a car, the entire chassis is grounded to the negative terminal, so when you run a line from the positive terminal of the battery to the positive post on the amp, and a line from the negative post on the amp to the chassis it is a complete circuit. I highly recommend placing a fuse on the positive line from the battery to the amp. Wiring this way prevents the amp from blowing up your battery, as well as prevents the battery from blowing your amp. Hope it works.

Eclipse 5340 deck


I forget about the security light but I do know about the clock. I believe you turn the deck off and hold display or push display and the clock will come up. Then use the preset buttons for adjustment. I think 1/2 is for the hour and 3/4 are for the minute. It has been a while for me doing this but I think it is right. I just powered mine back up a while back and am trying to find my starting cd. You wouldn't happen to know how to reset this function and start over?

Volume turned up, kenwood shuts off briefly...


I had this same exact problem when my last older Kenwood Marine stereo cooked itself while I had it up loud for a few weekends on the lake. (smelled like it had burned inside). I went out and bought a new Kenwood KMR-550u stereo deck. (I do not have an additional amp). I hooked it up to the exact connections where my older Kenwood stereo unit had been hooked up, as I never had a problem with this for the past three years until it failed after smelling of burning elelectrical. I had chalked the problem up to heavy rain we had one day. Every time I turned up the volume, sometimes up to 27 out of 35 possible, or 29, or 32, the stereo would suddenly shut off as if I had turned it off. After a few seconds the stereo would come back on, but unless I was quick enough to turn down the volume it would do it again right away. Of course on a boat, we were beached in a cove and the engine was not running when I encountered this. I searched the internet finding hundreds of similar complaints and several dozen theories of all types, but only a couple that pointed me towards the power (voltage) idea as the problem. I put a volt meter on the positive & negative wires powering the stereo. I watched as I gradually turned up the volume, the voltage on the power wire gradually decreased from 12.5 volts, down into the 11 range, and as it hit 10.9 or 10.8 volts it shut off typically around a volume of 32. The red power wire in my boat that never seemed to have an issue with my old stereo until it fried was determined to actually be inadequate for the power flow for the new Kenwood, and probably was the culprit of my failed older unit. I offer this sound advice: Run a new pair of positive & negative wires directly from the battery (with an appropriate fuse of course (the deck has a 10 amp fuse in it's back so I would use that at the battery) to the stereo. Check the voltage as you turn the volume up into the high 20's and low 30's to ensure you are still getting voltage in the mid to high 11-12 volt range. The stereo is designed to require a minimum of 10.8 volts to operate, and when it drops below that it protects itself and shuts down.

No Sound - boat stereo


Assuming that the four speakers are connected to the amplifier, then the amp is the most likely problem component. Does the amplifier show a power light when the system is turned on? Note that there is probably another fuse in the amplifier power wire, near the battery.
