I just installed a jvc car stereo. When turning up the volume with the radio or cd at about 15-17 it will cut out and starts making a crackling noise. I can turn it all the way down and then turn it back up again and it's fine, but if I go up over 15-17 it does it again. The stereo I had in the car before this one did not do this, and my daughter had installed this jvc stereo in her car before we put it in mine and it did not do this.
Ok , ive found the problem with mine. I checked the voltage between the earth wire on the head unit and the battery in the car. I found that when i turned the headunit up to around 17-20 there was up to 3volts differance, which is when it would cut out. So ive run a new earth wire and she's all sweet . Even the cd player works now.
I have a boat and installed a jvc stereo and a 1000w kenwood amp to run the 10 inch sub jbl and running 4 6by9 3 ways and 2 twitters and the stereo cuts out at 33 volum I am running direct to the battery for the amp. any help with this one

This is not a question for JVC but more for GMC. On the JVC radio side, if it can be controlled via steering wheel, you will see a blue with yellow stripe cable that states [STEERING WHEEL]. Not all radios can adapt to steering wheels controls.
Speakers have a tendency to change characteristics. Take the radio out and carefully disconnect one by one speaker. Don't disconnect all of them if you don't know which wire goes where. Then try increasing volume to the cut off limit. You may be lucky to find the speaker that cause the trouble.Try a different speaker prior to unit repair attempt
i have attached the wiring info you requested. be sure to test all wires with a meter before connecting. also a link to metra's website if you need an installation kit http://www.metraonline.com/fitl.aspx BatteryRED/BLACK(+)RADIO HARNESSAccesoryBLUE(+)RADIO HARNESSGroundN/ATHIS RADIO GROUNDS THROUGH THE CHASSIS MOUNTING BRACKETS.IlluminationRED/YELLOW(+)RADIO HARNESSDimmerN/APower AntennaGREEN/BLACK(+)RADIO HARNESSLF Speaker (+)BLUE/WHITELF Speaker (-)BLUE/YELLOWRF Speaker (+)BROWNRF Speaker (-)BROWN/WHITELR Speaker (+)REDLR Speaker (-)GREENRR Speaker (+)BLUERR Speaker (-)PINK
What kind of car do you have the stereo in? It sound exactly like a bad ground wire. To trouble shoot this, simply find a good clean ground point to hook the black wire from the radio to. you can usualy find somewhere behind the dash that the factory has grounded things to. I asked what kind of car, because some fords, and nissans do not have a ground wire in the factory radio harness, even though the adtor harness you may have used will have one. Hope this helps.
I had the same problem and found that when I moved the speakers apart further...It works as well as it always did before my 8 speakers were introduced..I think the sound was interfering with itself.. Try it !!
Hi Ithink , you are trying to push too much power to your speaker setup. Your cd, tuner, player, is only go as loud as the volume at half way setting. Your speakers are , probally good ones that want more power, and making your player overheat and making circut protection cut power. I would say, you should use it at 15, and that is as loud as it should be played to aviod distortion and overheating.
I'm guessing max is like 25 or 30, Is that so? You can listen to louder tunes by installing an amplifier. Or if you have an amp in your system it may be overheating, I would really like you to let me know if you have been trying use it at volume higher than half the maxium volume setting, so I know I helped, and you can start looking into power amp's. You can crank it up for good parts, but most players were not made to send alot of juice to good big speakers at high volume level.
Tell me what you think, tooldoc
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.
