There's been loads of Clarion HU's & amps listed on the main thread, so here's one for Clarion.

These are from my first car audio build back in c1997

I thought about starting a clarion thread, but figured there wasn't enough love for clarion to do so, but thanks. Give me time. I'll over load this thread with pics.

^^ I did wait for you to put a Clarion thread up basically from the time you became OP for the LANZAR thread, as your the Clarion/Audia guru :) . Thanks Mike for your support with this thread, I hope it becomes as popular as the Lanzar opti lovers...

The first set of quality speakers I owned was the Clarion component set SRS1652 (above). I auditioned the Alpine's and other brands at the time but loved the Clarion's sound.

I have very little money to spend, but I put up the only $20 I had against a clarion DXZ815MP HU and a DPH7500z and actually won it for just over $17 shipped. I'm stoked. Pics when it arrives.

I had a late 90s clarion "high power" CD radio in my old safari for a while. It sounded pretty good to my teenage ears (i.e. it could pound hard and had enough treble to keep up with the 6.5 woofers shaking the front doors apart). After it started having issues (which I later figured out was a speaker wire grounding out and making it go into protect mode) I swapped it for a BOTL clarion shaft radio that had a crappy internal amp (could get to normal listening level without distorting with eq set flat but that was it) but actually had very good sound at lower levels. if you could have bypassed the internal amp, it would have had great SQ. I still have both radios. The high powered one no longer has a detachable faceplate though...the button fell off.

I don't recall. I'll try to remember where I put it and dig it out (it's been in storage for maybe 4 or 5 years). I remember it had a black or maybe very dark blue faceplate, green backlighting on the buttons, a very basic green on green (or maybe it was green on black) display, a 4 way button on the left side for volume and seeking, and said 35x4 high power on the top right of the unit. It had no preouts. IIRC, it was from '98 maybe?

I was bidding on that until the dude quoted me $35 extra for shipping because he said he would ship it for
$2.00 like he listed. Gave up at that point! Glad you got it! Enjoy!

He contacted me last night about shipping, said there's no way he could ship it for the 2 dollars and change he head listed, which I knew there wasn't but since I had been a victim by eBay's shipping I'm not going to fight it. There's no way it should cost more then 20 to ship it. If it does then we'll be having it out through eBay.

^^ hope it all works out, keep us posted!

I found the rest of the SRS1652 component set = tweeters that I had flush mounted in my truck & passive xovers located inside the door panels.

Don't blame you there. If it comes down to a dispute you'll probably win it considering what he had the shipping price listed as. Even though the description said differently I think eBay would rule in your favor because it was.a deceptive technique. Good luck man! Certainly a great deal!

Mike, I had a look at your buy, I have a HU that does the following also...is there any repairs that can be done ? "perfectly for about7 years. It started giving me trouble after exposure to very cold temperaturesovernight in the winter a couple of years ago. The unit does still work, but onlyafter the car (and the unit) warm up. I guess you could say it’s temperamental. Isuspect that the control chip developed condensation"

That would be one of the first things is look at too. Depends if it's just on CD only, both built in amp and pre-outs?

On a side note, I just bought another DXZ615, but this one is for my daughter. She just bought a 95 or 98 jeep grand Cherokee, had no radio in it so naturally she came to dear ol dad. Might be looking for an OS cheap good quality sub for her too.
