Not rear channels

I have the receiver connected in a standard factory replacement setup and there is nothing going to the rear channels. The fader is at 00 and I have swapped front/rear once and they do work. Is there anything else on this unit that will make the rear channels not work, or is it just a bad one?

Re: Not rear channels

Some Dual in-dash mobile video players have a 2-zone function, but according to the owner's manual that one does not. There's no other function or feature on the XDVD8130 that would cause the rear speakers to shut off, so if you entered the correct model number it sounds like you have a bad unit.

How to pair your phone to the bluetooth on th kenwood kvt-514

Go into your Setup menu and scroll down to bluetooth settings.

From here you should see a screen that says "HFP connect device", "A2DP connect device" and "Receiver pin code".

Press the "Set" button to the right side of "A2DP" and it should bring you to another screen that says Pair device.

Go onto your phone settings and make sure you have your bluetooth setting on your phone set to "make discoverable"

Press the search button on the Kenwood unit on the right side and it will start scanning for available devices in the vicinity

Also press the Search button on your phone so it also starts scanning.

Next you should get a message on both your phone that shows the Kvt-514 and also a message on the Kenwood that shows either the model of your phone or your "nickname" (if you named your phone)

Select the Kvt-514 on your phone and it will prompt you for the pin code that was on the first bluetooth setup screen...most likely 1111 (you can also set a different pin code using the "set" button to the right side of the "Receiver Pin Code" on the first bluetooth setup screen)

Enter the Pin code and select "Pair" on your phone.

You should get a confirmation on both the Kvt-514 and your phone that they are connected and you're good to go.

On my recently installed Jensen VM9414, while playing a DVD, I can clearly hear the background noise/music, but I cannot hear the characters voices. I thought maybe it was the setup but have tried...

I've had this problem before, but not on this specific head unit. You most likely have your audio setup to 5.1 or other surround format, yet have nothing hooked up to the center channel output of the head unit.
Unless you've currently hooked up the center channel to an amplified speaker, or gotten out of a surround mode, you're not going to hear anything.

If you do have everything hooked up right and are sure the settings are correct, possibly a blown amp in the head unit.

Balance/Fader is backwards and rear speakers do not emit sound when only rear is selected

It sounds like you have your front and rear speakers wired backwards,your rear speakers are connected to the front input and vice a versa.
To test that, select "front"and you should only get sound from the rear speakers.
That would also explain why the fader is backwards too.

I need to know how to hook my kenwood kvt 617dvd

Starting with the basics (and assuming that you can't use clips/supplied connectors):
First: Test your chosen connection points, then disconnect the battery before making the connections.

The power is supplied by 2 lines, a B+ and a constant.
B+ is the switched hot line, most often RED and often a bit heavier than the rest.
The Constant is the direct battery hot line that maintains your memory settings, clock, etc.
The Constant is most often YELLOW, with a fuse in-line, and may be another of the heavier lines.

The Red connects to the ACC/Radio fuse so that it is only hot when the key is on.
The Yellow connects to the battery directly (if it has a an in-line fuse) or to any spare fuse in the panel thaT STAYS HOT WITHOUT THE KEY.
*This is where a simple circuit tester comes in handy...less than $20 at most Autozones...or you can make a simple tester with a couple pieces of auto-wire taped to a small spare bulb.

Part 3 of the power supply is a solid ground...the BLACK line should be securely mounted to a chassis ground...Use your tester across the hot fuse and your chosen ground before drilling a pilot hole for the ground screw.

You have 2 hot triggers, likely blue and pink, which supply power to the antenna and the amp when the radio is on.
If you don't need them, tape the end into a loop and tuck them away.

As for the speakers...this is where the fun starts.
You're going to find the speaker sets within the mess of wires left after removing the factory harness (if that is what has happened) through a process of elimination.

Start by opening the trunk and looking at the connectors on the rear speakers.
Note the color scheme of the left and the right, then look closer at the speaker for the - and + marks to determine the colors of the Left Negative, L- Positive, Right Negative, and R- Positive.

If the speaker sets on the radio are not marked, then power-up the radio (Make Sure no loose ends are touching!) and set volume at 30% and the fade and balance to 90% in the Left Rear.
Hold the L-R set from the dash and test-connect the radio's speaker lines to find the strongest set...this is the first of 4, and it gets easier.
(The darker of the two is almost always the negative)

Use the same procedure for the Right-Rear (since you know the colors of the rear sets) and make your rear speaker connections.

From the remaining dash lines, separate the heavier lines and tape them safely closed.
Of the rest, use your tester with the key and parking lights* on to make sure none of them is hot.
* One is likely the dimmer line for the factory radio, and may be useful to you later if you have a LIGHTS/DIM line on your new set.

Your remaining 4-6 lines will include the front speakers, but test each to make sure they aren't hot either.
Swing the balance & fader to the L-F and start test-touching to zero-in on the L-F speaker lines...then repeat for the R-F set.

Your RCA outs are all labeled for Sub, Video In-Out, etc and fairly self-explanatory.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly.

My name is JB, and along with being a certified Electronic Tech I also spent 12 years installing and repairing custom after-market systems.
***You only get ONE Chance to do it right the first time, so always apply the carpenter's rule; "Measure Twice, Cut Once"...which in this case means Test, and re-test, before applying power to any new connection.

PXA-H700 optimum set up...

The way the EQ is hooked up is correct.

You set the factory radio to a set level, then use the volume on the EQ for everyday adjustments.

I believe your problem lies in the amplification.
Your BOSE amplifier was made to run a 4 channel 8ohm stero load.
Low powered - high in sound quality.

You have swapped the factory 8 ohm speakers (15W) for 4 ohm power hungry ones.
Now the amplifier is working harder to produce the same output.

You would be best served eliminating the factory amplifier and getting 1 good 4 or 5 channel amp to power your speakers.

a 4 channel amplifier could be used stereo (left and right) on channels 1 and 2, (2ohm stereo load)
and bridge channels 3 and 4 for your subwoofer.

For a true surround sound - a 5 channel amplifier could run each speaker individually, and the 5th channel is reserved for the subwoofer.

a small dedicated 75wx4 channel amplifier with built in crossover, and level gain controls - would blow your socks off. It is 200x better than the factory 12Watt amplifier. Your ears will love you for it :D

If you need more help - just let me know.

Best method for connecting rear speakers yourself

The other wires in the back by the speakers are NOT speaker wires. It is possible to cause a short circuit in your car and or damage your unit by hooking up the wires from stereo to non speaker wires. Smoke from the dash is never a good sign. Hopefully nothing is shorted. These are the correct wire diagrams for your car. Hook them up just as described and you will have sound in no time:) If there is no sound check all fuses. Hope this helps.......Let me know what happens.......GOOD LUCK

Left rear (+) is Brown wire. Connect that with the Green wire.
Left rear (--) is Yellow wire. Connect that with the Green/Black wire
Right rear (+) is Dark Blue wire. Connect that with the Purple wire
Right rear (--) is Light Blue wire. Connect that with the Purple/Black wire.

Trying to add more audio equipment to my Pioneer Nav stereo

The Avic N2 is only XM ready not Sirius ready like the N3, which is SAT ready(both XM and Sirius). If you must have your Sirius the only option left for you is use the rear input on the hide away unit but you won't have it on the touchscreen. There is one more expensive option by have your N2 hardware upgrade to N3, some Ebayer have that service offer for about $275. It's done by replace a surface mounted chip with 70 plus leads. That would take some expert de-solder and solder skill with a solder torch or
a tech's heat gun. I can do it but I don't know which chip it is. I have an immaculate N3 for sale on Ebay. Maybe you could sell your N2 and buy an N3. I usually get about $550-$650 for an N2 depend on the condition. Hope that I did some help. You can call me at 801-414-4566, I would do anything I can. Goodluck.
