You have one of your speaker wires shorted out to the body of the car somewhere, or the speakers that you installed are bad. That is the only two reasons it will go into protect. Correct the problem, then reset the deck - it should work fine.
Kenwood builds this feature in to protect the outputs - so they dont burn up in the case of shorted speakers or wiring.

Stereo install yukon w amp and subs


Recheck your connections from deck to "non-sub" speakers. Are you using an adapter from deck to vehicle wiring harness OR are all wires individually connected?

SP OFF mode?


if you turned it on without speakers hooked to it you may have blown the speaker output amps or if the end of the amp remote wire touched a ground you may have burned a trace on the board did you here it play at the pawn shop? or did it just light up? sometimes the people at the pawn shop think if the unit lights up it is working and sometimes they check them is just hook power to them without speakers if so this can blow the speaker output I would take it back to the pawn shop

I recently hooked up a new kenwood deck put new front and back speakers in. I hooked up a 1200 watt hifonics amp about to plug in my 2 15 inch rockford fosgate speakers rfz1412 and they dont play. All the...


Ok, so I am assuming that the other speakers are working, and it's just the subs that are not, right? If this is the case, start from the source. Make sure the RCA cables are plugged in and not crimped anywhere. Then to the amp, Did you check the gain levels on your amp. That is the knob next to the RCA input on the amp. Also, check the wiring to the subs. Make sure all your + are goinig to +. Sometimes in the "heat" of a good install, you just lose track of those things. When in doubt. Undo all your wiring and start from scratch. Good luck.

Got panasonic cd-radio put in vehicle,it's playing but no sound


Did it ever play? Original mercedes vehicle had external amps and faders that were controled by the deck it self. If deck was removed most likely you need to install new speaker wire to the speakers.

No cd audio from my phase linear uv8


It sounds like you have a factory amp in the vehicle. Check behind the radio to see if you have the blue wire from the deck hooked up to anything. You probably do. So take the blue with white stripe wire coming from the deck and hook that up instead of the solid blue wire.

Prot. light at High vol. (forget Bass CD)


You may have the speakers wired for the wrong impedance.

How many ohms per voice coil?

How many voice coils per speaker?

If the speakers are DVC, are the coils of each speaker wired in series or parallel?

Are the speakers bridged on the amp or one per channel?

No sound


you may have a blown speaker...many cd decks will shut off their audio circuits when a speaker is blown to protect from shorting out. Go to the back of the deck and try disconnecting speakers one by one. You will have to turn the deck off and back on each time. Hope this helps!
