ok dont know if you will check up on this but fm transmitters are all garbage. for true undistorted sound go to an electronics store and ask for a rca to headphone cable. then just hook it up to the rca input and run the cable out of either the unit or somewhere on the dash. this will alow for a true connection and if you buy a brand name cable i.e. monster, radioshack, sony etc. should sound amazing. always happy to help.

The multichanger has to be connected,with a cd in, but then the head unit will play whatever is fed to the bus in sockets. This effectively means the multichanger is playing to itself. If you want both to work, use a pair of piggy back rca leads into the head unit, one to the cd, one to the mp3. Then break into the cd leads and feed one of the pairs, one +ve, one -ve to a double pole switch so that you cut the sound from the cd allowing the mp3 in. To play cd's, flick the switch.

Do you have the remote turn on lead hooked up to solid blue wire from the back of the deck? Your amp shoild be hooked up to Bluw w/ white strip as the solid blue wire shuts off when the tuner is off, its used only for the power antenna.

Use Blu w/ Wht strip for amps

I have an mp3 player that i want to hook up to my logitech x-540 speakers but when i do it only plays on the front, or rear speakers depending on which cord i plug it into, is there a way where i can use...


An MP3 player is a stereo device, meaning that it works on two channels - left and right. Therefore a 5.1 speaker system will only play on 2 speakers.

However, if you want to use rear speakers as well, just for the fun of it (you won't get any surround effects, both left speakers will play the left channel, and both right speakers the right channel) you can purchase a "headphone Y-adaptor", that normally allows two people to use two pairs of headphones on the same portable music device.
It has one headphone plug and two headphone sockets in parallel. Plug it into the player, and to the sockets plug the front and rear speaker cables :)

Please come back with a testimonial if helped :)

Cant get the speakers balance its all on the right side.


ok maybe i am not understanding what you are trying to do .if you are looking for balance you found it balance is front to back and side to side. if you are saying the volume wont change you might have one rear hooked up to the front and one to the back. this is most common on cars thatare hard wired "no harness"double check the way you ran the wires good luck

Rear speakers not working


Your FM tuner will only generate sound from the front sepakers. CD's, Tape, and I guess mp3 player, as well, will only play through the front speakers.
I've included a link for the manual. The audio on this rig is pretty complex. read through the info, especially pages 11,12,13, and play with the audio controls.

Back rear speaker wont play when singled out. more details inside


I would suggest you mdisconnect the rear speakers from the amp, take a 9volt battery and click te speakers on at a time. If proble duplicated, the you have the left speaker tied to the right somewhere.

Cannot play my portable audio device with Sony cdx c500x


It will only accept audio from the bus in conections when a multi changer is connected and selected.

This is how I connect my mp3 player to my sony.

Swap multichanger audio outputs at the rear of the stereo for my mp3 player, press source to select multichanger.

Remember as I said, if there is not a control cable connected to your multichanger it wont wotk!

Mp3 player only plays on right side speakers


Have you tried a different jack? It could be faulty.

Rear speakers dont play with connection box


I believe this is a wiring incompatibility problem. The reason I say this is because when the mp3 player is out the jack which contains switches engages the front L&R and the Rear L&R, when the plug is inserted into the jack the jack switches should remove the audio input to the amplifier and replace it with the audio from the mp3 player. The switches should then send sound to the front L&R and the Rear L&R but the only change should be that the mp3 player is switched in instead of the audio from the raido unit. what is happening is that the jack switches are only switching in the front L&R speakers. This just might be a function of the unit. check the owners manual. here is a site that has the manual: http://www.docs.sony.com/release/XAV7W.PDF
