Question about Kenwood KDC-MP235 CD Player
I installed this radio in my boat and I am having problems with it cutting out on me when I have the volume up to 24 and when the bass comes from the music the radio, screen, and sound cuts out with no err messages! I have checked the voltage to the radio and it never goes below 12v, thus it having a new battery and the engine running it still happens. I am pretty experianced when it comes to installing car audio and have checked the wiring numurous times to make sure the connections are correct and they are. I even replaced the speakers with new (2 6.5" JBL)! I think the outputs or the built in amp is bad in the radio itself but I want a suggestion or another solution I can do to try and fix this. I installed it after the warranty expired...
Red ignition wire is coming from a switch
Yellow battery wire is direct to battery
Black is neg wire direct to battery
Front channel is pos and neg to the two 6.5 wired to left and right
Look at page 8 in the user manual. I was having the same problem where the head unit was not producing enough sound out of my speakers so I had to turn up the volume 30+ and it would cut out... Turned to volume offset to the highest possible (+8) on the source that I was using which was aux... now the volume level is blaring in the low to mid 20's

Check to make sure the ohms rating on the speakers is correct. should be equal to or higher on speakers compared to receiver.
