View Full Version : Radio Issues

Well i cant find my old thread.

So i took out the CMD4, and headed to best buy to pick up the CMD6 and a driver remote... $399 + $249!

As i was browsing around, i saw a sony headunit which had all the features i wanted. It was "water proof" and has 3 pre outs fr / rr / sub and an aux input for the iphone cable. And it was only $175! I ordered a remote for it when i got home for $118. So i saved my self some cash.


Thats the cd player, and this is the remote:


My question is, for the clarion remote i had to buy a longer wire to run it up the nose of the boat, does anyone know if the sony remote comes with a long cable? or if you can buy one?

I am looking forward to the responses on this one. The CD player in my boat is flat worn out and I want to add an aux input, so this might be a good solution for me as well. If the remote fits in the same place as the remote I have, this would be a great solution. I wonder if I could re - use the existing cable for the remote...

It cant use the same cable as the clarion. The radio fit in the same opening as the clarion did, you just had to drill some new holes at the top.

The remote is the same size as the clarion ones, and im pretty sure the cut out is the same size also. Ill know on Thursday

Yes most of the marine sonys come with 20-25 feet of remote cable.
