You should check and verify first the output signal in the amplifiers by using a multimeter on the db range, this is to identify good output of the amp. After that check the polarities for correct wire orientations.You should connect the speakers one at a time to check.

SOURCE: How to connect Kenwood KAC-6104D to a single 4ohm

you want to parallel the terminals on the woofer. a jumper from positive to positive and the same on the negative will equal 2 ohm load at the amp

SOURCE: I need an appropriate speaker

This amp is stable down to 4 ohms bridged at 120 Watts or 2 ohms stereo at 60 Watts X 2. If you are going with the bridged mono hookup just make sure the impedance of your subwoofer is no less than 4 ohms. A good rule of thumb is to be at least double of what your amps rated output power is. So if your amp can put out 120 Watts into 4 ohms then get at least a 240 watt subwoofer.


Do not exceed the rated load for your amp, you will damage it. Here is the datasheet for your amplifier

How to bridge a kenwood kac-9105d


Are you referring to something like this, using two different amps? It is a mono amp, meaning there's one amp in the box.
"KAC-9105D also has a Dual Mono Drive connection that allows you to strap two KAC-9105D amps together to power a single subwoofer."Quoted fromhttp://www.kenwoodusa.com/Car_Entertainment/Amplifiers/KAC-9105D

Here's a link to a page out of the Yamaha Sound Reinforcement book. the top shows a stereo amp (1 box, two different amps inside) hooked up to drive two different speakers, which is known as 'stereo' mode.It then shows the two amps hooked to the opposite sides of the same speaker, which is known as 'bridge' mode.http://books57.net/ampOuts.gif

Any help?

I have a craig powerplay amplifier model # V 502 48 watt. i need wiring schematic.can you help ?


From left to right your connections will be as follows:
BATT: 1x solid (at least 4mm in thickness) wire directly connected to your car battery positive(+).
GND: Will be an earth wire of the same thickness connected to any section on your vehicles body (chassis). Even a seatbelt bolt will do.
P.CON(REMOTE) will be the remote wire coming from your radio (normally blue or orange in colour).
The speaker connections are pretty straight forward unless you are going to connect subwoofers.

At the back:
FILTER: leave off unless you are going to run subwoofers
OPERATION: Leave it on sterio unless you are going to run subwoofers
LINE IN: Will be RCA cables coming from your radio
SPEAKER LEVEL INPUT: is for connection if your radio does not support RCA jacks
Please feel free to ask about anything you are unsure about. I hope this helps and solves your problem

either the wiring your running is short circuting,or the amp is shot, or the subwoofer is shot, try hooking the same speaker up to the other amp. along with the other speaker to the other amp, see if the same thing happens.

Can i connect 4 speakers and asub to a kenwood kac m645


There is many amplifiers made for that purpose. They'll have 4 channels for your mids and highs and a mono channel for your sub. I looked up the specs for that model and based on what I saw I wouldn't recommend it.

My Kenwood KAC-929 gets power but DOES NOT put any sound out. Whats My Possible problem(s).


Hello Spicer_kyle6,

Possible problems: 1) No output from the head unit. Try a different set of preamp outs. 2) No input to the amp. Check the RCA's and make sure that they are good and coming from a functioning preamp or subwoofer output on the head unit. 3) Input gain turned off or down too low. 4) Speaker wiring shorted, grounded, or open. Check all wires. 5) Speakers defective. Connect to a known good output to test. 6) The amp itself could be defective and still show a power-on indication.

Hope this helps.
