    WoofersEtc story Nakamichi CD400

    Bought a Nakamichi CD400 from them direct. Should have gone through their Amazon account for guarantee. So after 6 months the CD is skipping. Playing music for 30 minutes the unit is so hot the CDs come out hot. I am using the onboard amp so they tell me that my speakers are inefficient and it is overloading the HU. Then the CD won't play when it's cold out (New England) or when it's hot (summer).

    How is it that a HU cannot drive a set of component speakers after boasting a powerful onboard amp?

    So I remove the unit and send it to Woofersetc. After chasing them down after not answering my emails, they tell me I owe them $20 since their techs can't find anything wrong with it. So I proceed to detail what's wrong and they'll look into it more. After chasing them down again via the phone as they won't respond to emails, they tell me yes indeed the unit skips and they will be sending a new one. No apology for being wrong or anything.

    Now I see threads online from other CD400 owners who had the same issues.

    Anyhow, I cannot recommend Woofersetc for their poor communication and poor tech support.

    That ***** and all, but if you're buying a nak unit, why aren't you using an amp? Are you also using factory speakers? I don't get it. Why did you go with nak?

    I forgot to mention I put Soundstream components in the front doors, mid and tweeter. Not using the rears. I would think the onboard amp should drive them IMHO.

    uhhhh. So you are driving at least 3 different speakers with each channel of your hu? How do you have it wired? I am certain that this is your problem. There is no way to make this come out right.

    Yeah you need separate amps if you want to run a 3 way front setup. If you going to do the same thing with the new h/u, you WILL mess it up again.....

    I think he means he has a midbass and a tweeter in each door.

    Re: WoofersEtc story Nakamichi CD400

    I'd think the internal amp would be sufficient to power a set of components. To their full potential, no, but power them without overheating, hell yes.

    I think some of you pros read what he typed wrong.
