2006 Jeep Commander with a Sony XA-VAX1000

Post by BoulderMcBonesteel » Sat Aug 24, 2019 11:18 am

Greetings,
I've replaced my factory stereo with a Sony XA-VAX1000 using the Maestro RR and a CH2 harness. I do have a factory amp. Everything works except for the rear speakers. I've double checked my connections and even tried connecting to the RCA outputs on the stereo. Still no sound out of the rear. Does anyone have any suggestions?

in those systems it's only a left and right input to the amp (only 2 channel) so the amp is in charge of splitting up the signal to all the speakers. I would put the OEM stereo back in, make sure the fader and balance is set to the middle, verify all speakers working, then reinstall the RR.

Thanks for the reply. Would you know of a way to around not having the original radio? The original radio died.

Negative you would need an oem radio. You can try disconnecting the battery for 15-20 minutes to see if it clears any settings that the oem radio may have left then reconnect it but that is just a shot in the dark.
