Question about Kenwood SW36HT Subwoofer

Open Question

Kenwood SW-36HT I have a Kenwood SW-36HT subwoofer. This is actually the second one I brought in 4 years. Each time after normal use the SB starts to make a tinging noise as if the speaker is blown. Is the speaker a piece of junk or can it be fixed. I refuse to buy another one because I might encounter the same problem. The SB is great while it's working but now the tinging noise is so bad I can't bear to turn the darn thing on. Please help.

SOURCE: Speaker outputs blown on 4 channel amp

the outputs should be replaced in pairs, there are 2 to 4 pairs, but you sould only need 1 pair replaced. these transistors typically range between 10 to 30 cdn each + labour, look for 1 to 1.5h to replace & test the unit after repair. check your local repair shop for their rates. good luck

SOURCE: Kenwood kdc-mp528 amp/speaker problem???

This is a common mistake. This problem indicates that you are using the solid blue wire from the head unit to the remote turn-on on the amp. This is a power antenna wire that only receives power when on FM radio. You need to replace this with the Blue & White wire from the head unit (power control wire) to your remote turn-on on your amp. This should solve your issue.

SOURCE: Speaker blown? How do I open it up to see? And how do I fix it?

Try without having the input plugged on the speaker ... to determine if the noise is coming from cable or receiver

Hello,

the only way to get to the fuse:
you need to remove all the screws surrounding the amp on the back of the speaker. when removing the last screw be sure to hold the amp
in place because if you don't it will fall out towards you causing damage to you as well the screw hole.
disconnect the speaker connector. you need to press the latch on the side of the connector to release it from the base.

carefully remove the amp and lay it flat on a sturdy surface. don't lay it on something that can tear because the grill on the amp can damage cloth very easily.

If you look at the board closest to the edge you will see a fuse there as well as on the main board that is lying flat. check those fuses to see if they are burn marks on them. you should have 3 fuses to check. replace as needed with the correct ones. if you don't know which ones you need take them to an electronics store or auto store.
hope this helps.

I have Kenwood SW 900 . need to know its out put. Kept for long period


Do you mean the Kenwood SW-200 subwoofer or the SW-200 power meter? The subwoofer can use 50W RMS at 4 Ohms. It's rated at 60W. The power meter reads in two ranges: 20W and 200W.

Kenwood has the manual for the subwoofer on their support site. The direct link to the manual is http://kenwoodusa.com/UserFiles/File/UnitedStates/Home/Manuals/sw200.pdf .

I hope this helps. If you are looking at a different Kenwood product, please clarify which product you have. I can't find a SW 200 receiver from Kenwood.

Kenwood sw-35ht Replace with a kicker sub


I suppose you could, but you are talking about a driver (speaker) that was not designed for that cabinet size and amplifier used in the Kenwood, There are differences in speaker design besides power rating and impedance.

Kenwood SW-32HT Subwoofer Dropping sound Yamaha Reciever


Several possible answers. First - is that the Yamaha has a fault that is sending a signal with too much power on it. And the sub detects this and switches off.
Second - either the Receiver or Sub is switching off when no audio is present. A setting problem?
Third - the sub has a fault, possible overload, and goes to standby for safety.

How do I adjust my subwoofer bass level for my kenwood kdc-138 car tereo


http://www.kenwoodusa.com/Support/Car_Entertainment_Owners_Manuals/ You can download the manual from Kenwoods site. While the unit is in Standby mode, press the B.Boost button for a second or two. You should now be in the Menu. Select SWPRE. Now chose SW from the (R*/SW) options. The output of your CD player is now a dedicated sub woofer output. I hope this is what you meant. There are many settings regarding the sub woofer and generally the sound in whole. Getting the manual is highly advisable. dreamsystems.

No wiring harness


Hello goose720,

First, try the dealer where the Kenwood was purchased. They will normally replace missing items under warranty. Next would be Kenwood, tell them the wiring harness was missing and request that they send you a new one. If neither of those work, then you probably will have to purchase it. Here is the website for Kenwood parts.

Hope this helps.

I brought a second hand kenwood car stereo and i need a code to use it


Hi there,

You're in luck!

Click here, it will bring to a page authored by one of our best technicians (Robotek). He outlines the procedure for clearing the code on most Kenwood models.

If this gets you going, don't forget to give Robotek a rating (me as well).
