I had the same iss and what I finally figured out through the use of the book and just messing with it is- go to the menu seletion screes should be the upper right button on the screen or what would be a main menu of all the options - then scroll down to the next menu page there should be one button listed as standby- click it- then go back through your menus and adjust where needed for the sub. Then just adjust all you things to max- it worked for me. the lables for audio nad interface still had a lock on it but after hitting the standby button to can then change your settings that were previously locked up. then once done just go back to your tuner or dvd etc.. to get out of set up menu.

I had a similar issue with my 512. I reset the unit and was able to get the sub control to function. Check your zone controls and make sure they are in single. Dual zone will disable the sub....Hope this helps

Kenwood radio rca sub outs. How do I hook up a sub and will it work without an amp


You can't, unless it's a sub with a built-in amplifier. A subwoofer pre-amp output is meant to be connected to an amplifier, not directly to a subwoofer. You must have an amp to drive a sub.

I have a velodyne sub woofer needs amp power source I have a kenwood eq and a sony reciever trying to figure out how to hook it all up right


So, you don't have a powered Velodyne sub (with a built in amp?)

Without model numbers - I"ll guess that there are speaker in and out connections on the back of the sub.

You simply connect the left and right speaker wires from the receivers to the subwoofers input speaker wire connections.

Then connect your main speakers from the sub's Out (or "speaker"} connections so that the sub is in line with the speaker path.

Use the sub's crossover settings on the back till you hca a seamless blend of the sub to the speakers where it is hard to tell you have a sub other than you your music now has deeper bass.

Why do you need the Kenwood EQ? This is not a necessary piece as nobody really knows how to use it properly and it realy complicates how you use your system. Flashing lights look cool though, right?

If you really must complicate the operation of your system then connect the Tape output of your receiver to the tape input of the Kenwood EQ, Then connect the Tape output of the Kenwood EQ to the Tape input of your receiver - assuming your receiver even has tape ins and outs.

You can engage the Kenwood EQ by inserting it into the audio path when you select the appropriate Tape input as the source on your receiver.

Hope this helps.

I have 3 Kenwood 12'inch subwoofers need to know how to wire them up to a Kenwood KAC-9105D


Follow the link and use the first diagram which illustrates wiring the subs to 2.66 ohms http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp~Q~3~I~42

Remember that that amp is one ohm stable so you will not be getting the most out of that amp with that subs set up. The subs will only see 650 to 850 watts total...so each sub will only see about 215 - 275 watts a piece. Find out what the RMS wattage of your subs are each an determine if the wattage I mentioned above meets those requirements.

Kenwoodxw1000f shut off after 10 sec


the problem sounds like your new sub is drawing to much power and your amp can not handle it. bridging the amp is a good way to get the full power out of your amp. But it isnt always suggested, my solution is to get a bigger amp. I install stereo systems for a living, and i tell my customers that it is smart to get an amp about 100 more watts then the rms rating of your subwoofer.

find the rms rating of the sub and compare it to the amp.if the rms of the amp is higher than the sub you have enough power to push the sub.if its lower look at the rms of the amp if it can be bridged.you would like to see the rms matched to the sub or subs if you have enough power.
