Question about iLO XM-MP3-CD Car Stereo
Hi there, My Alpine 9851 keeps switching off while playing, then either comes back within a few seconds to the same track or stays off for a few mins and completely resets itself. I have checked that none of the wires are loose. The only thing which i can think of is the case has become slightly bent due to somebody trying to steal it from my car. Could the fact that the stereo is not mounted perfectly straight be the cause of this? I would appreciate it if anybody who may know what could be causing this could let me know. Many thanks Shaf

It is possible a self-protect feature may be shutting down output. Check all of your wiring, following the manufacturer's instructions exactly. Faulty wiring is a major cause of poofed audio output devices in car audio. Any short in wiring, or an open (intermittent or otherwise) can cause a problem here. Internally, bad solder connections where the output devices solder to the board could cause problems too.

Make certain that each ouput channel from the unit is driving no more that 4 ohms each. If you have more than one speaker attached to an output then be sure they are wired in series NOT parallel. Two 4 ohm speakers in series is an 8 ohm load and the same two speakers in parallel is a 2 ohm load. If the speakers are dual voice coils then you must treat each voice coil as if it were another speaker when it comes to wiring.
