I just went down the FM mp3 player route using an SD card. It was only £6 and works well on the recommended channel. Never had any interference from Cornwall to Yorkshire!!
I think the only other option would be to change your radio which isn't too expensive these days?
You could fit a single din radio and a storage unit in the double din space?

I started off high and worked my way down ever since :-)

That's the trouble with the later Jimny. The rounded corners on the facia make it impossible to fit standard stereos without modification.
I did wonder if the VW double din stuff would fit as they have round corners as well??
You could fit this facia but expensive or buy another used one and trim it?

I take it you mean something like this? I believe there have been discussions about them before? Once again a bit expensive when you can buy a "standard" double din unit much cheaper!

some one I know has tried one or two in my clarion double din unit :whistle:
and they work fine.
try changing your CD-R's and reducing your recording speed (allegedly) :blink: :

as long as you don't try and record Eddie Stobart trucking songs and Girls Aloud, you should be OK :pinch:

Does anyone know the output RMS power rating per channel of the factory Clarion radio in Jimnys 3?

I am preparing to install aftermarket speakers in my Jimny.
They are 2x Hertz DCX 100.3 (30 W RMS each) in the front and 2x Hertz DCX 130.3 (40 W RMS each) in the rear.

I don't expect the factory Clarion radio to be able to output more than 15 W per speaker / channel, if even that much (the original Sanyo front speakers were 10 W RMS each if I remember correctly).


So my idea is to obtain a 4 channel amplifier to connect between the Clarion radio and the Hertz speakers.
I am thinking whether the addition of an amplifier is justified to "level out" the power discrepancy between the radio's capability and speakers' requirements?

EDIT: My goal is not to achieve extraordinarily loud sound to entertain my wider surroundings. It's just to do the new speakers justice so that they perform optimally.


(I don't want to change the Clarion radio with an aftermarket radio because of the high risk of theft of aftermarket radios in my region.)


By the way, I am planning to obtain Alpine KTP-445U amplifier. Available only in 'merica, but international postage solves the distance. It's a 4x50 W amplifier and is very small, just like everything that goes in a Jimny has to be anyway ...

I've attached here a photo with the specifications from the owner's manual, maybe it will help you find what you need.

Thank you very much for this picture.

Does it say for which exact Clarion model do those specifications / manual apply to?
