Question about Kenwood KR-X1000

Open Question

I have a Kenwood KRX1000 THX Amp, which is clipping at low volumes and also has reduced output (volume wise) by about 50%. We used to listen to it reasonably loud at -30db, and now it has to be at ab

It seemed to be only after I moved stereo and unhooked/reconnected speakers that I noticed It doesnt clip when I plug in Ipod.

SOURCE: shuts down at high volume

If you have your reciever in an entertainment center that is enclosed or a tight fit for the reciever you need to remove it and put it on top of the center. I have a VR407 and it was doing the same thing. This keeps your unit much cooler and the overheat relay will not turn it off. also I found it much easier to add or wire components much easier.

SOURCE: I just bought a KDC

Hi,

Yes, the Kenwood KDC MP-235 has two (2) line level outputs (RCA types red & white). However, these outputs internally passed through an electronic crossover/filter making them appropriate for subwoofer amps only.

If your unit is an MP-235CR, then the same outputs would be for the rear amp (not subs) and are full range (unfiltered).

If indeed your unit is an MP-235 and if I may make a suggestion, still connect the Kenwood to four (4) speakers. It would not be technically correct to leave the internal amps operating with no load (speakers) connected. Additionally, you would be getting 200 watts (4 X 50) more to your system (since it is already there).

If your Bose amp & speaker are subs, then no issue, however if the Bose is for a full range of speakers, then only the woofer part would be working efficiently.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Im running my pc through amp but tweeters start to pop at hight volume .. is there a fault with amp or pc ??


It sounds like you are over driving the speakers. Recommend reducing PC audio output, as it is amplified for the computer speakers. Use the amplifier for volume - not the PC.

I installed a Pioneer DEH-P800PRS head unit and 4 Kenwood KFC-1662S speakers in my 2003 Dodge Dakota extended cab truck. I used a Kenwood KAC-5204 2 channel amp connected in parallel. Sounds good at lower...


Hello.... sorry to hear about your problem. Bass is the ultimate evil of coaxial speakers. You have a couple of options here, and this is just my professional opinion because I do not know what your lifestyle details, such as truck space needs, type of music you listen to, budget, etc. If you are looking for alot of bass, the best bet would be to use 2 external amplifiers, 1 for the interior speakers, and 1 for a subwoofer. You would then need to purchase an electronic crossover. With this setup, you can remove all of the low frequencies from the coaxial speakers and put them where they belong, with the sub. You will gain EXCEPTIONAL clarity and a very high volume before distortion level. Again it will depend on what your budget is and if you are willing to compromise on some cab space. The only other option you have at this point is if you are wanting to play your music at high volume levels, you will just need to reduce the bass level as you increase volume. I hope this has helped. Good luck with your venture!!

What is amp remote and att


Amp remote: The In dash front unit has a remote switching output which is normally a BLUE wire which can be connected to the power amplifier kept at the rear for powering when the front unit is switched ON.

Att: this is the attenuation of the reduction of voluem/mute that becomes necessary when you are ina traffic condition and wants to listen to external noise.Pressing this button will reduce the level of volume in an instant which can be used as you desire than to reduce the volume with the controller.

Intermitant signal output to speakers via amp and head unit especially at low volume...Possibly "clipping"?? Panasonic head unit 4 x50 to Alpine Head driver to 4x Focal speakers.


Make sure the connections are tight and they are not vibrating according to the speaker output.
Tap along to see if this canbe the issue which can be corrrected.
If the clipping is happening always check the CD for errors, change and see. reduce off the tone to mid position to check. cehck head unit seperately and the amp to confirm the fault in one of them to proceed.

Kenwood Receiver VR 806 turning off


Sounds like the music amplifier is different to the tuner audio amp. The music amplifier is now looking at an unbalanced impedance which is less than it should be. Therefore the output chip of the music amp has more current through it than it wants so it gets hot and shuts down.Put a four ohm wirewound resistor ( from Radio Shack ) in series with each surround speaker to reduce the current flow through the amplifier output.

Sound problem


Try cleaning the volume control with an electronics switch cleaner spray. If that does not resolve the problem and it seems to happen at low volumes more than load volumes, then the output relay needs to be replaced. Keep us posted. Dan
