Question about Alpine CDM-7834

1 Answer

Installing CDM-7836 into a Boat

I pulled the user manual from your website and have been un-successful installing this into my boat. The boat has power from a 12V battery which passes through an on/off switch before the head unit and then has a ground. I tried connecting the battery lead (yellow) and they remote (blue/white) to the power and then connecting the ground. I cannot get it to turn on. Can you help.

Yes I can help, the blue/white wire isn't meant for that purpose. That wire is meant for an amplifier turn-on. the wire you want to use is the red that is the accessory lead. What I would recommend is finding a constant 12V to hook to the Yellow and hook the switch 12V to the red. This way your radio will retain memory. Or you can connect both the red and yellow to that switch and never turn the switch off. Simply use the on/off button on the radio. Good Luck I hope I could help.

I'm installing the Pyle plcd33mr in my 1996 rinker 180 boat and the wireing harness on the stereo does not match up with the boats. How should I go about fixing this


The trick is find the adapter which plugs into the original radio's harness. In the automotive world, these adapters are vehicle specific and readily available. The adapter plugs into the original radio's harness and the wires on the adapter are the same colors as the wire colors on the new after market radio's plug. So it's a matter of connecting yellow to yellow ,etc.
I was unable to locate adapters for boat radios, or radio pin outs . I would think they are available as the automotive adapters are.
I suggest you go to a local marine supply store and ask if they carry radio adapters for after market radios. You can also try doing a web search. It may work if you can come up with the name and model number of the original radio in the boat, and try a search using that info....

Model-m 255 clarion installed in a pontoon boat. RADIO WAS WORKING JUST FINE, THEN I INSTALLED A (NEW) BATTERY FOR MY BOAT, HOOKED EVERTHING BACK THE SAME WAY. NOW, I HAVE POWER BUT (NO) SOUND...


Disconnect all the speaker leads and then hook one speaker (a new, known to work speaker) up directly to the radio using a short (6"-12") piece of speaker wire. Does that speaker work then?

No power


Do you have the manual. I have the same model installed on my BMW 1100RT motorcycle and it requires two power hookups. One senses the ignition is turned on and the other is the power up from power source. If the ignition power wire isn't connected, the unit will not powerup. You can however, connect both of these power wires to bypass the ignition switch. This ignition switch is used so you don't kill your batter by accident. I'm sure that wouldn't be good on a boat. Good luck!

Sony CDX CA720X in my boat


Mac, I had the same problem, it was the hard wired remote at the Stern. When I unplugged it from the radio, everything came back to life and the radio and CD player are working fine. I'll have to replace the other remote at some point.

Hope this works for you...
