CDR-23 Radio Quirks

Pierre,

No, I've not seen that, but my CDR-23 radio has refused to turn on at times, and recently, after I shut the car off and removed the key, it started making a popping noise through the speakers, even though the radio had actually been shut off. Also, it would turn on, without the key in the ignition. Bottom line is that they have their own ghosts, and I guess we have to live with it until we're willing to pony up the bucks to change them out. Good luck with it...

Pat

Volume blast...

Mine will blast much louder when you start the car. Never heard anything like it.
Like the dudes from Spinal Tap always wanting to crank it to 11.

But hey who care if it sounds like crap- its got a fiber optic high bandwidth network bus.

Sorry, Pierre, I couldn't resist it!!
I thought about maybe saying the radio thought it had better taste than yours, but..........it just came out the way it did!
Sounded like maybe you needed a chuckle!

All modern radios are transistors of one type or another.
Electronics companies have all spent fortunes on super cooled components because cold semi-conductors are more efficient then warm ones.
You have a certain volume level set on your radio and turn it off warm. When you turn the car back on at a later time, the semi-conductors are now cooler and, theoretically anyway, more efficient (powerful).
There is also the fact of probabaly having road and or top down background noise and having your ears accustomed to the volume level before shutting down, then having quiet and low volume background when starting it back up.
Both factors may well be relevant.

So Quickurt how many years have you been chasing electrons? Professionally?

Hah! I began chasing electrons in 1970 in Air Force tech school!
It was so damned boring I quit chasing them absolutely at the first possible minute! Chasing other formula car drivers was much more exiting and rewarding.

If semi conductors are not more efficient when cold, why all the hoopa over super cooled?
Now I'm gonna go out and find a decimal meter.

Hmmm… Very interesting, I also attended AF Tech School but I continue to chase electrons. I am currently an Engineer Specialist/Manager working for United Launch Alliance (Boeing / Lockheed joint venture), we build rockets and launch satellites [url]http://www.ulalaunch.com[url]. Why super cool… It’s all about speed man!!!
BTW… I am not bored chasing electrons.
