Pyle is not the best brand, but ...
Normally I would blame a factory amp, but that is unlikely in a 14 ft boat.
The speakers are wired directly to the CD player (no amp in between)?
Two speakers to the front or rear channels only, or four speakers one to each channel (You aren't wiring both channels to a single set of speakers, I hope, are you?)
Is the fader set appropriately (if you only have the rear channels connected, is the fader set all the way to the rear?
Ground wire run to a grounding plate or back to the negative battery terminal and both red and yellow wires connected to 12VDC and getting power?
If there is a menu setting to turn off the internal amp, is it deselected?
Post replies and the model number of the CD player and I'll look for anything else, but if all that checks out, it's possible the deck is defective.
Hope This Helps!!!

Hmmmn, not a bad looking little radio. There is no way to turn off the internal amp. You would want the fader all the way to the front the way you have it connected, but it sounds like you tried that.
I would try pressing the reset switch. (Page 9).
If that doesn't work, I would try disconnecting both speakers and connecting the speakers one at a time directly to the radio output wires (at the rear of the radio, not 6 feet forward in the boat.
If that fails, I'm going to say it has to be either defective radio, defective speakers (both), or bad power or ground wire connection (or radio fuse, but the display probably wouldn't work either then).
Hope This Helps!!!
Anyone else have suggestions?
