The manf claims hi power which usually means 50 X 4. More likely the actual power is more like 8 to 10 watts X 4.

One thing to remember about most radios, the RCA pre amp circuit will still work even if the mosfet power amp inside the radio does not. The best way to know if the amp inside the radio works is to use one matching color pair coming off the radio to wire up a random speaker right to the radio. You can use just about any old random 4 ohm speaker that is laying around to check it. The best solution if the amp inside the radio is blown is to replace the radio or amp the pre amp outputs with a small 4 channel amp. Oh, by the way. What vehicle are you connecting this into? And does the vehicle say Bose, Infinity, or ect sound or Premium sound? These usually denote a factory amplifyer already onboard and requires special connections to get the signal to these amps to then be delivered to the speakers.

Kenwood stereo 6 Stack stereo on boat. Doesn't receive AM. FM ok. Doesn't seem to be sensitive to whether the aerial is plugged in or not.

There could be a problem with the port the aerial is plugging into, what you can do is examine the ports for defects ,
1.) open it up
2.) look at the port, there should be solder holding it in place as well as solder holting the connection pins in place.
3.) resolder the pins
4.) turn it back on taking care not to touch the circutis
5.) gently plug back in the antenna and shake it slightly to ensure iys working.
6.) turn it of disconect it and reassemble it.

That should work if not let us know and we can be of further assistance. Do Not Rate Until YOu Are satisfied with your experts Responce or the Problem has been resolved

Sorry, but solving this requires a tech to see it in person. Assuming that your antenna is not broken, the first thing I would ask you is if you had anything done to the car recently. If you haven't done anything, I would pull out the radio and make sure the antenna cable is plugged in tight. Other than that it can be electrical. See if your radio works with the engine off, or maybe with the engine on but only in park. Find a local stereo installation service and see if their willing to take a look. Usually we don't charge to take a look. I never did. Good luck. =)

I have a used unit, need instructions on how to hook it up to a caddy 1995 factory am/fm radio

Are we talking a new deck/stereo or new speakers/subs?
A new deck will require a wiring harness (cheap at walmart or local auto place) and this will come with a set of directions and wiring diagram for your make/model vehicle.
Subs/Speakers can be wired into a stock AM/FM radio (though I have no idea why anyone would want to do this) fairly simply, The wiring diagram will be printed on one side of your stock radio letting you know where to attach the 12v constant, the remote wire, and the speaker wires.

Why have the speakers stopped working on my stereo. they were working fine until i had to brake sharply then thet all went off together. the stereo is only a month old & is still connected at rear...

Hello.. I am sorry to hear you are having a problem. If you have had your speakers changed out recently, it could be that one of the speaker wires or terminals are touching a metal part of the car. What happens is the aftermarket stereo detects this problem and it shuts down all of the outputs to keep from burning up. So all of your speakers going out is a good thing because your stereo protection is working as it should. You can cut all of the speaker wires loose behind the radio and hook them back up one at a time and when the radio cuts off, that will be the bad line. I am assuming of course that you dont have them hooked to an aftermarket amplifier. Even if you have not changed your speakers, it is still a protection circuit that will detect a bad speaker as well. Sudden jolts, braking, etc. can cause a bad speaker to fault. Hope this helped!! Good luck with your venture!

I have a 2008 dodge ram came to work this mornining turned my radio on and no sound just channel 184 and cannot change it.

That is the Sirius free 'test' channel. Do you have and pay for Sirius satellite radio service? If not you might try the AM/FM button to return to the band you were used to listening to. If you do pay for the service check to make sure your bill is current and try turning the stereo on and off a couple times. Pause for a moment while the stereo is off before turning back on.

Hi, Really the only way to sort the problem is to remove the radio and get the serial number. Then ring Phillips and ask them who to contact for the unlock code. Philips don't make car radio's any more but they have established a list of agents who can provide you with the unlock code. When this thing happened to me (my son's Daewoo)  I found the techo was very helpful and the unlock code was provided to me over the phone for no charge. There are plenty of people and sites out there ready to offer you an array of  codes and unlock codes for premium dollar. Don't bother with them. All the best.
