Post radio wont work

The Sony tape player/radio wont work right in a 47 chevy bus
<------------
We have it set up to a Marine batery in the trunk and two 15 inch speakers. The problem is we get about halfway to our destination and the radio starts scraching and eventually we lose the signal and all other stations. When we look at the battery and test it, it is full. What is hapening?

First I have to ask due to the fact I used to be big into the car audio and the fact I love old cars...Whyyyyyy do you need 2-15" speakers in that car? 15's are overkill and they sound like sheet as well as rattle your rusty parts off and just be totally in the way.

Anyway, to your question, I don't think the battery has anything to do with your sterio losing a signal or blanking out, but with the little bit of information you supplied its hard to understand what actually is happening. Can you decribe it better, describe the entire system and how its set up?

As we drive down the road, we hear scraching and we loose r signal, we get out at a gas station and look at it, the plugs are fine and everything, but when we get in, we get the same thing, its very frustrating!

Have you checked the Antena? Check to see if the wire is broken anywhere. Check to see if the connection is good and firm and if the antena is in good condition. If it is, check all other wires for damage or bad connections. The next step would be to see if your Amp is setup correctly. The last step is to see if your headunit or the radio itself is in good condition.

When an amp isn't dialed in correctly or hooked up wrong you will get phantom problems like these. The weekend audio guy do these types of things without even knowing with a wire confusion or switched connecter or something small and confusing like that. If an amp isn't connected correctly you will get exactly what your describing. When the music is playing do you have to turn the volume level up pretty high to hear the music?

NO, we hear it fine. I think we just need a new radio but i'll try the Antena. Thanks for your help.
