<p>The superior audio quality thanks to the Kenwood stereo
system is as good as any on the market. However, many of Kenwood audio receivers
contain no iPod connection port. Even the business hubs of high-end
entertainment that interface with the computer via USB cannot provide
connectivity to an iPod. But that does not mean you cannot high-quality audio
through your stereo Kenwood iPod. <br />
<p>1. Put your Kenwood stereo. Connect devices with the stereo
turned on may lead to spikes in volume that can damage the speakers and even
your ears. Turn up the stereo, so you can use the set of connectors on the back
to see. <br />
<p>2. Connect the end of 3.5 mm 3.5 mm to RCA cable for the
headset from your iPod. If you do not have a cable 3.5mm to RCA, you can buy
one of the sound equipment stores or electronics stores like Radio Shack. <br />
<p>3. Connect the RCA end to your cable 3.5mm to RCA in an
available port on the back of your Kenwood stereo. Put your Kenwood stereo, so
you can access the buttons on the front. Turn the sound and select the channel
of your iPod is connected. <br />
<p>4. Test the connection. Lower the volume on the Kenwood
stereo and start a track playing on your iPod that you can recognize. Turn your
volume until you play the iPod through the stereo to listen. If you hear no
sound, check the "Monitor CD2/TAPE2" is active, and "Mute"
is off <br />
This is a very common problem, you may have to get a different jack that works with the headset jack thats on the iPod. iPhones and iPods have a weird style jack on the top that wont allow most headphone or 3.0mm to 3.0mm jacks to go fully inside the jack causing it so there is not connection with the jack itself in the iPod. You can check this by turning the volume up and down using the rocker buttons on the side while you are at the home screen with no music playing and see if it says speaker or headphones when your turn the volume up and down. Speaker means there is no jack connection, headphone means that there should be music playing through the stereo. Thats using the jack.
If your talking about an iHome or other direct plug in stereo specifically for the iPods and iPhones, make sure that the dock is the correct dock for the iPod, and make sure that it is pressed fully down onto the dock. If all that is correct there should be no problem. If the problem still is happening, it may be your stereo. =/ Goodluck! Hope this helps!
