Question about iLO XM-MP3-CD Car Stereo

1 Answer

Boat stereo/speakers I recently had my boat anchored a few feet off shore while sitting on the beach. I turned the speakers up in order to here the stereo from shore. It was loud but not obnoxious. Suddenly the sound stopped. When I approached the boat to inspect the problem I could still here the music but it was distant and very quiet within both speakers? Thanks, David

    After a bit of testing I found the speakers were bad. Each speaker had small transistor which must have burnt out due to age and the
    loud volume.

    Thanks,
    Heavy

Wonder if the return line from both speakers was wired to a common earth, and you've lost that connection? If that happened, you'd end up with the two speakers in series instead of in parallel, and just playing the difference between left and right channels (so very much quieter). Check also the stereo doesn't have a separate fuse (possibly internal) for the power amp stage. A.

Radio model plcdbt65mrw.. I replaced this radio in my boat with the existing.. did wire for wire.. Excessive static coming thru speakers.. what can I check..? thanks mike


There are many possible reasons. Few pointers.
Disconnect antenna and check for static. If it is still there then turn off everything on boat , including battery charger and check for static. If is gone then start turning on electrical devices to narrow what is causing electromagnetic interferencw. If your still have static then disconnect all speakers right on stereo harness. Start connecting speaker to individual output to check for static. If there is no static then one of speaker wire installed on boat is shorted somewhere. If you have static when connecting speaker straight to stereo harness then likely internal ampflier inside stereo is a problem

What size motor for a 1970 15ft. seaswirl boat


outboard??? you could go all the way to 40 hp but id not recommend that much , but maybe a 20 hp would be just right !! its all about the condition/design of the transom and how you want the boat to sit in the water (weight) at rest ive seen motors as low as 10 hp on boats this size

My new Coleman SCANOE sank.


Look up the "Bird Of Prey Canoe Stabilizer" on YouTube. For less than $80 a guy made stabilizers for this model of canoe. I'm looking into buying one and found your post. I have read in another area that people were having issues with it taking on water in the back while using a motor. We mostlly row, so at most I was considering a small trolling motor.

Steering on starcraft fishing boat


Some one has assembled the rack to the wrong side of the steering wheel shaft, OR put the cable down the wrong side of the boat, OR switched from a pivot steering anchor to a transom mount anchor (you would have had a drag link left over.)

Hi, make sure that the bottom of the transducer is parallel to the bottom of the boat. It probably has been knocked upwards while on the beach. If not the transducer will need to be replaced. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Lowrance x96 does not function after 20 feet depth


Your transducer needs to be adjusted so the return signal can be picked up. Some of these have to be super tuned to receive the signal. Also the transducer may be moving ever so slightly when the boat is traveling at speed. You may have some water turbulence interference all contibute to signal return.

Do I need a new equalizer?


Karla, Equipment and water especially SALT water (AND SALT AIR) don't mix very well. The constant high moisture environment affects all the connections (the wires) the rca connectors (where one thing plugs into another, AND the switches. The wires may LOOK good but the connections may not be. When you say "all seems to be in good condition" tell me specifically how you checked them. Sometimes they LOOK good, but ar not making connection. While your stereo is ON, get in there and wiggle everything and see it the speakers come back on.

My first guess is your amplifier/reciever. Does it have speaker switches? If it does, move them up and down or click them many times to see if you can work the corrosion a little. This may help.

I'll try and help, let me know some of the stuff I've asked fo above.
