Question about Kenwood KDC-MP238 CD Player

1 Answer

Cd player plays, but no sound comes out of speakers.

I hooked up subs and amp in my truck. I ran the remote wire to the battery to test them and they worked fine. I then tried to run the remote wire to the back of my head unit and that did not power the amp. So I spliced the blue/white wire in the wire harness and connected the remote wire to this. This did not power the amp either. So I spliced the red wire in the wire harness that runs from the battery. I connected the remote wire to this and it did not power the amp. The next time I tried to play my cd player, it would play but no sound would come out of any speakers, even with my subs disconnected. Did I blow a fuse or wire somewhere? I put a cd in that I burned mp-3's and it plays but with no sound. Any suggestions? Thanks.

First off the amp gets power straight from the battery. the amp is used to power the subs. the subs are suppose to be connected to the amp only( never the speakers).

for the second part you mostlikely killed the wires. you should get some one to look at it and check the wires. thee speakers might need to be re-wired

Look at the enwood. I bet you have the remote wire hooked to the blue wire insted of the blue/white wire. The blue wire goes dad when you play a cd as it is for a power antenna. The blue/white wire is your amp turn on.

Now, if you do not have a blue/whie and only blue, then obviously that circuit in the radio is bad in whch case your only other option s are either connecting it to an accesory fuse or using a toggle switch connected to power.

My pyle dvd player has picture but no sound it plays through the subs but not the speakers


What Kind of Vehicle Do you Drive... It is Possible that you have a Factory Amp installed that runs all the stock speakers in the vehicle(LF, RF, LR, RR.). You would have locate the Amp remote wire for the stock amp and hook it up to the remote amp wire on your deck.

When the radio is on the sound comes out of all the speakers. when the cd player is on the sound only comes out of the sub woofer


are you running separate amps for the woofer and speakers??? sounds like you have the woofer amp being turned on be the amp remote wire (blue/white) and the speaker amp turned on with the power antenna remote wire (blue). if this is the case you need to use the blue/white to turn both amps on.

How do I hook up a sub woofer to my 52wx4 radio. I


You can hook it up a couple of ways.
Depending on how many subs you have and what ohms they are running at here is the chart you need. If your going to run one sub off it the last option is the way to go. Your going to need to find out the power of your subs or else the power could be off and you could blow the sub. If the rms power is higher than 130watts per coil you will be fine. If so there are four channels on the amp and two should show a line going to each other that says bridge. Hook up the positives and the negative of the subs as shown on the amp that will get your max power. If your sub is running at 4 ohm. Let me know, if not thats how you would do it.
Also for the power and remote wires. Hook up a power wire (16 gauge would be plenty fine) from the battery to the + terminal of the amp. Then take an equal or bigger sized wire from the - side of the amp and secure it to any medal part of the body of the car. If there is paint on it get if off. (not on the outside of your car or where any water would be.) Then run a remote wire from your stereo (most the times it is blue and white) to the remote terminal of the amp. This tell the amp when to turn on and off. Your amp will not turn on with out all of these wires. Good luck to you and let me know how it works out.

    okay , well you need to make sure all your conections are in the right spots, and that your IN LINE FUSE, between your amp and battery, the big glass one is not burnt, just take a look at the metal piece inside , if its a sold metal piece its good, if its burnt in half like a broken bridge it needs to be replaced. the next thing is the fuse on your amp, you need to make sure it is not burnt also. Check your remote that it is hooked up to the right wire. then check that your sub/speaker wires are connected properly and secure. YOUR GROUND WIRE IS HUGE HERE also. MAKE SURE IT IS GROUNDED TO A GOOD SPOT, YOU MAY HAVE TO MOVE IT AROUND A FEW TIMES TO FIND A GOOD GROUND!!!! if you check all of these things, it should work fine.. you can fiddle with your amp and bass settings levels. turn em up so when it works you know it, but not too much you dont wanna blow nothing :)

    Is there a wiring diagram for the nikkai EAPA450 Amp


    Hi, if you still need a photocopy of instructions email me mail@srands.co.uk

    If you want instructions in brief this involves POWER CONNECTIONS, PHONO LEAD & SPEAKER CONNECTIONS:

    POWER (At the same time when routing these wires, I would connect the PHONO LEADS from the car cd player to the amp, if your car cd player only has 1 preout (1red & 1 white) then you will need two phono splitters, a female to 2 males. Phono leads carry the unamplified sound from cd player to the amp):
    ~ Permanent 12V+ (Thick lead that is fused direct from battery all the way to the amp, wire must be 20a to 30a +, hence 1cm diameter wire, known as AWG8, Maplin sell cheaper kits then most)
    ~ Amp REMOTE (A thin insulated cable (5a is OK) from car cd player amp remote wire, this turns the amp on when the cd player is on, if your car doesn't have an amp remote wire, suggest nearest ignition supply or seperate switch that you turn on when you want to turn on the amp)
    ~ GrouND 12V- (Insulated lead (20a to 30a) to nearest part of unpainted car chassis such as interior panel screw hole, instead of an insulated cable all the way from the batery, this is common practise.

    SPEAKER:
    Each speaker has a - negative & + positive, these must connected correctly. The amp has 4 channel, 2 channel labeled as front, 2 channels labeled as rear. Using speaker wire, connect cable from amp to speakers. Note: Ensure the speakers being connected only receive sound from the amp (Not cd player as well, as would damage players or at the very least impair sound)
    The amp has a feature called bridgeable this means a sub 8" or 10" sub can be powered by 'bridging' two channels. For example there are 2 ways to bridge power a Sub on the NIKKAI EAPA450:
    i) Sub speaker wire positive + to channel RL and Sub speaker wire negative - to channel RR.
    OR
    ii) Sub speaker wire positive + to channel FL and Sub speaker wire negative - to channel FR.

    Switches:
    ~ Bass boost, meant to be on for a channel if using sub, otherwise off.
    ~ X-over mode adjust hi/lo frequencies, only work if both x-over switches are on! Then adjust switch frequency knob, until it sounds right.
    ~ Gain (Volume knob) adjust volume knob up or down, until it sounds right!

    NOTE:
    You will need patience! many hand tools and parts such as: Wiring kit, fuse holder 20a/30a, Phono leads, speaker cable, Fork/ring connectors, wire strippers, wire cutters, set of screw drivers, also ueful to have zip ties to tdy excess cable and 'P' cable clips to tidy speaker wire to shelf, etc.

    OK

    Any more questions just email me mail@srands.co.uk

    Your best bet is to buy a cap. A capacitor is an external battery booster like device. It boost power to amp. The thicker the wire the better. Power and ground. Shorter thicker ground wire the better. Make sure it is not on a painted surface. Scrape down to metal surface!!!!

    Rear speakers not working


    Your FM tuner will only generate sound from the front sepakers. CD's, Tape, and I guess mp3 player, as well, will only play through the front speakers.
    I've included a link for the manual. The audio on this rig is pretty complex. read through the info, especially pages 11,12,13, and play with the audio controls.

    Do you have the remote on from the head unit hooked up. If there is nothing to tell the amp to turn on it wont. You can bypass this to see if the thing works by using a jumper wire from the power wire to the remote on. I don't suggest leaving it like that though cause it will drain your battery over time. You need to hook the remote on to a power source that is only on when the radio is on. Like a power antenna wire.

    Only door speakers have sound on the cd mode


    the amp requires a 12 volt power constant, and a 12 volt "on" signal. you prolly have the 12 v "on" hooked up to the car stereo's antennae remote, meaning your amp gets power when the radio is on, cuase the radio is sending a signal to the amp (thinking that it is sending a signal to the antennae to raise)

    you do have one of those collapsable antennas, right?
