View Full Version : Radio clipping

05-24-2011, 07:27 AM
Hey guys... I have a "Pyle of sh*t" radio!!! I just installed it this past winter. It works great unless the boat is running. It clips and shuts down. I am guessing it can't handle more than 12v??? I have an amp that doesn't shut down, so I am thinking it is a radio issue. Is there some sort of "volt control" device I can use to help this... or do you reckon it's just a bad radio???

Everyone settle down!!! I installed an Alpine tonight... all fine. Lesson learned!!!

I saw this thread about clipping and wonder if I am in a similar situation. I have an 89 Tristar 190 with a Blau cd player. At about middle volume it turns off consistently. I tried installing another brand new unit and got the same issue. I wonder if I have some issues with the wiring. I hooked in to the factory wiring so I am just curious. Thanks!

It may be because of voltage drop low voltage. Use a volt meter and see if it clips if voltage is under 12
