low radio volume 96 GL1500 Panasonic RM-G30P

Postby David B. Smith » Sat Nov 14, 2009 1:59 pm



Volume will not rise up to hear when engine runing very low. Replaced radio with like one,new radio worked fine when installed(plenty volume) nexk day same problem with new radio!What could be blowing Amp inside of radio( I asume thats the problem) HELPPP the fact that new installed radio worked fine for a time tells me that all fuses/connectors are OK.Also cassette lid will not open is this in any way related? When new radio volume was working the cassette lid also working,Helppp Dave.

The reason I asked that, is if the speakers have too low an impedance (are 4 ohms, when they should be 8 ohms, etc), or if there are four speakers hooked up instead of just two, it can cause the amplifier to overheat and fail. The fact that it works for a little while before failing is what pointed me in that direction.

It should be printed right on the back of the speakers.

Have looked all over for replacement speakers,cannot find any with 8 ohm only 3,3.8,& 4 ohm. are you sure the Specs call for 8 ohms? I have both owners manuel and shop service manuel,nowhere can I find the Specs for this item! Dave

Sorry, I was using that as an example - saying IF they were supposed to be 8 ohms, and instead they were 4, that would cause the kind of problem you're encountering. I don't know what the actual size should be. Does anyone else here with a 1500 know the proper speaker impedance?

Fuse 13 inside the relay box, under the left side cover. The relay box is directly to the rear of the main fuse block, fuse 13 is the fuse at the very bottom of the relay box.
