Have you tried new rca cables or a pop test on the output to the amp ? maybe even a remote wire disconnected ? even though u get a .5 ohm reading the rca output could still be bad try a pop test on it this should help you figure out the problem

Subwoofer wont play


For a sub to play it needs wiring from sub to amp and the amp needs power from battery and amp needs signal from radio and amp needs to be grounded oh and it needs a remote signal from the radio as well and if your radio is stock and has no RCA outputs you need a LOC which will connect to you speakers with wire and to your amp with RCAs

How do I hook up the auxiliary cable to a G1700 JL AMP from this radio?


the signal RCA cables and the power control wire go to the head unit. the power and ground go to + and - terminals, and the speaker wire goes to the corresponding clips on the speaker driver.

My kenwood kdc-mp53u flashes PROTECT whats wrong with it?


Protect indicates that there is a short or a grounding problem usually within the speakers2_bing.gif or the speaker wiring. Locate and press the reset button (pinhole). If protect comes back then disconnect all speakers, reset and connect them back one at a time until protect shows up again. This will help you find out where the unwanted DC signal is coming from. If protect shows up when all speakers are disconnected, then it may need service.

Will the Kenwood KDC 1032 RCA outputs work with an ipod adapter similar to an aux output? If so, how?


Hi, if you are trying to get your I-pod to play through your car stereo, then you would need to have the RCA inputs, not outputs. If you connect your i-pod to the stereo outputs it won't work because both things are trying to push sound out of their outputs. If you connect the adapter to the stereo's inputs then it would work.

I have an KDC-MP435U receiver with 160w kenwood speakers. can you please advise for the the best speakers for this model? can I add a subwoofer? Please advise how can I improve my car sound. I'm using this...


Yes you can add a subwoofer. you will need an amplifier and feed the signal to the amp with your subwooder output rca jacks on the back of the radio. this will give you control over the sub.

Kenwood KDC-MP438U acts as if there is no power to it,dead nothin


The speaker wires are very sensitive. You need to make sure that they are not grounding out. Once the unit senses this it will shut off. Pull the plug out of the back and start over.

I have a kdc-mp435u and when i connect the subs woofers to it,it dissent put out enough out put Signal to it and when im driving some times it give signal the woofers cussing them to hit heartier. I check...


did you plug your rca signal wires into the subwoofer ouput rca's? if so you can control the level and frequency of the sub on the face in the audio menu. if this is not the issue try new rca cables. you can run them outside the car first just to test. another issue is make sure you have proper grounding on the head unit and amp. also if your rca cables acccidently touch power they can blow a fuse or trace inside the radio causing the rca's to lose ground (you will have low audio with lots of humming noise). you can check this by jumpering a small wire from the radio frame to the outer shield of the rca jack while it is all plugged in. if the sound gets louder and cleaner you can secure this wire in place by soldering it or fixing the circuit board itself.

My kenwood kdc-mp235


I assume the amp is turning on (lighting up) No audio may be due to Burnt rca ground trace in your kenwood radio. If you have a ohm meter measure continuity from rca's ground terminal to radio chassis. Should be close to zero resistance. If there is no no continuity there are fusible traces on radios main board that burn open at times when to much current is flowing thru rca ground
Just a good possibility , haver seen this happedmany times.
If you need service manual let me know kstahl65@att.net

Can I plug an mp3 player into the unit ???


Hi, A wild guess, the 2 X RCA are lineout intended for external amplifier hence no AUX selection in your front panel buttons, but of course I might be off. I have similar problem with a Pioneer model and an MSI MP3 player. My solution was to install a stereo FM RF Modulator similar to Delphi SA10003 or an AudioVox Rf Modulator FMM100a. The MP3's output was fed to the modulator which turns it into an FM broadcast. The car stereo picks it up as an FM signal. Hope this gives you some idea. Good luck and kind regards.
