Connecting my ipod to xmd3

Is there any difference in hooking up my ipod to the RCA connectors in the back or with the clarion cca.ipod connector

I believe that if you use the RCA connectors, you can use your iPod. If you use the clarion cca connector, you get more functionality from the dash of the clarion.

How do you connect an Ipod throught the aux input?


what type of input does your radio have? if its a head phone jack input just get a headphone to headphone jack wire from radioshack and plug one end into you ipod and the other into the radio, set your radio to aux and your ipods volume to 70-80%. if its an rca input, it exactly the same but you will need an rca to headphone jack wire. if its usb, just use the cable that came with you ipod.

I cannot get the rca speaker wires to produce sound. i can get sound out of the hard wire speaker wires


the rca speaker hook ups are there to carry a signal to an amp and the amp to put a signal out to your speakers so with that being said you will not get sound out of them due to the fact that it carries a real real low power signal

I have a Clarion installed in my boat. Sirrius, cd am fm. No jack to plug in iPod. Solution?


FM Modulator.

(clarion makes a hardwire direct connect one)

FM200

You would use a 3.5mm to RCA adapter

There are also battery powerd ones (Belkin)

Either one is used by simply tuning in to an empty (white noise) radio station.

Im assuming the XMD3-RET is not the radio you are inquiring about since you described Sirius as a feature.

Some clarion radios have an AUX input or changer port that can be converted to an ipod cable.

If you reply with a model # i can look it up for you. I am a Clarion Dealer.

Yes, there are 2 Red RCA jacks on the back. A $10 cable from radion shack, 2 RCA on one end and a 3mm jack on the other.
Cheap way to do it, there is also a device you can buy from Clarion that will do it for about $90 that gives you more control from the radio.

NO SOUND FROM CLARION XMD3


I have a XMD3 with Sirius on a Larson boat. Had same problem - everything seemed to be fine on unit (everything lit up and CD showed different tracks and time changing), but no sound. I suspected a ground problem and checked wires I could see. Found one speaker wire that had been frayed due to faulty installation. As soon as I wiggled that wire I got sound on all speakers. Not sure why one faulty speaker would kill all sound, but it did for me.

Bottom line is that boats are a hrsh environment for electronics. Moisture, salt, and vibration all conspire to undo solder joints and electrical connections. 4 years is a pretty good life span on a boat. A solder connection within the unit could have let go. A good repair shop could probably fis the bad connection but you can probably replace the unit for less.
