Question about Kenwood KAC-9152D Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Head unit is on but no sound coming out

My head unit is an old Pioneer KEH-P1015 with 4 speakers attached to it and a 6 disc pioneer CD changer. Before the problem occured, one of the rear speakers (rear right 6x9 speaker) is not putting out sound. The symptom is a ticking sound, that sounded like a loose wire rubbing on something. The sound is coming out of the speakers while the music is playing. If I turn the head unit off and turn it back on, the front panel lights will turn on but no sound coming out. I tested the unit with the engine off and still the same ticking sound. I checked if there is a loose wiring, rewired the speakers to the head unit but the problem returned after about 5-7 minutes of playing while the car is running.

Disconection the sound

This will be a protection feature of the head unit. If you are not using an amplifier, when the power required by the speakers exceeds the power output of the head unit, it will cut out until the volume level is reduced.

If the head unit turns completely off, you may consider adding an amplifier to the sound system.

Car audio

Most likely the RCA's are running from the sub out on the deck to the amp. You need to run two sets of RCA's for a 4 channel amp. One for the sub out and one to the front or rear channel.

Hope this helps.

No Audio when disconnect from external amp and hook to speakers

In a radio like your Pioneer and all similar units there are always a pre-amp circuit that feeds a power amp circuit,In some players there are more than one pre-amp circiuts. It is possible and highly probable that the power amp circuit in your Pioneer is shorted, so you still get some audio output , but very little. I believe this is your problem and I suggest that you bring it to a repair shop for an estimate or replace the unit. Good luck and please rate this answer, Thanks.

My mtx thunder 1501d car amp making noise in the subwoofers

This is common with pioneer head units, the rca jacks are not properly grounded and this lets engine noise come through the rcs cables. This thread explains a fix

Amp works but no sound from sub

Some older Pioneer radios require you to connect the Subwoofer RCA to the rear output on the back of the radio and then you have to turn on the subwoofer in the menu on the radio. What model Pioneer radio is it? Also, make sure that the RCA plugged into the amp is on the input side, not the output side.

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.

Old pioneer GM120 amp

ok first the large red is battery connection, black large is ground find good source to ground, the 0.75 is most likely the power on for the amp you should hook it up to the power antenna wire on the radio. this will turn on the amp when the radio is turned on. the grey green and black are prob speaker hook ups input. the four wires are speaker outs, the red wire might be power for cd changer test it to see if it puts out power when amp is on.

Not working

Make sure the remote (rem) port is powered, if not take another look at your inputs from the head unit as sometimes we tend to forget the channels orientation of ground and positive left and right.

If all else fails, have an audio installation expert help you out, a pari of extra hands would be helpful too...
