Question about Kenwood KAC-9152D Car Audio Amplifier

3 Answers

Amp stopped working...

Yesterday I was driving home and had my stereo on. The volume was on a low setting and all of the sudden the bass just went out. So when I got home I checked the amp and the LED light wasn't on. I replaced both of the 30 amp fuses twice and still nothing. The 80 amp fuse on the power wire doesn't look blown but I will replace it anyway. I read the troubleshooting guide in the manual and it was not any help. I also looked around at different sites and they said to check for pinched wires or wires that may have become grounded, but I haven't moved anything since it has been hooked up. I tried everything I could and can't find the problem.

Has the amp been overheating lately? It's quite possible that the amp could have just blown. Smell around the outside of the amp for an electrical burnt smell. If available, see if a friend also has an amp hookup and try removing your amp and copnnecting to the friend's cables. That will tell you if it's a wiring problem or an amp problem.

Hey guys i have the same amp and close to the same problem. i was driving listening to my music and looked back because the bass stopped suddenly and i smelt a burn.. so i pulled over and checked it out the power wire came off so i went home and hooked it all back up and i did this twice that day just to make sure it reset! it has no reset button just a conductor inside the frame so when off it automatically resets itself or its toast.. so im about to hook up a new amp i will let u guys know.. but anyway. if your amp goes off when the bass hits its either your power wire is lose or ****.. or your ground is screwed so just look for splits and the rehook em up tight and move the ground to something else hope it helps :) have a good one

My speakers in my 2003 Silverado started to fail at about 5 years old. I just replaced them with all new speakers. They would come and go erratically and sounded horrible.

My subs are skipping notes and only play low notes decently and only play when the volume is at full blast. The amp wiring is fine and the radio wiring seems alright. No idea why it is


First of all the bass needs to be tuned down on stereo you shouldn't need to turn volume fill blast then you set your amp so your subs sound good hope you have a cross over. Never tune the gain on your amp past 3/4 ether play with you air flow to that some times works I found that if you do this your bass gets louder less risk blow

How do i calibrate my powered subwoofer for my car


OK assuming you are referring to after market sub and amp whether or not added to factory head unit (stereo). #1 start your engine, and have your amp adjusting knobs accessible #2 insert a CD of the most listened to type of music (Rock,rap,classic) #3 adjust your stereo volume to YOUR max preferred db level with your amp levels at the lowest settings possible #4 start by increasing your freq. rang by 2 bands at a time then the same with gain, once you have gotten your bass to the level you like with out distorting or popping try increasing your bass boost (if available) till your preferred sound(may need to back off gain and freq. add bass boost accordingly until you like what you hear.play around with it for a while make sure you do this at the peak volume in which YOU listen to music because if you do it at a low volume and then turn it up you can blow your equipment . side not 8''in is for very fast bass reps, 10''in is for average rock and 12''s 15''s 22''s are for your low long deep bass reps such as rap and R&B anything else just e-mail me

Samsung HT-C550 The DSP/EQ or the Dolby Pro Logic II Mode buttons won't work. No change on faceplate display. Any help would be appreciated.


I had the problem and after pressing the DVD Receiver\DVD button to no avail went back to setup and turned the ASC Setting to off. Apparently I had forgotten to turn it off after doing the Auto Calibration.

Hope this helps.

Stereo cuts out at half volume.


You don't exactly define what "cuts out" means.... silence, protection or power off?

What makes you think it's thermal in nature?

Have you considered the speaker load impedance may be too low for the amp?

Home theater hooked up volume sounds low


Check your different settings either in your t.v. or your amp. In your menu settings you can change your audio. Bass trebile etc. and even sometimes switching it from stereo,mono, dolby digital will increase your volume. Dolby digital is very quiet if your not running and exteranal amp system. so try changing it to stereo and your volume should increase.

Amp went into protect, but front speakers sound distorted too


If the amp still goes into protect mode, the easiest thing to do is disconnect the RCA cables from the amp and see if still goes into protect mode (after turning off/on). If it does, the issue lies in the amp or the wiring to/from the amp (most likely case). Check to make sure no speaker wires came loose and touched +12V or ground (car body). From the sound of it, my guess is something internal to the amp died and will need repair.
