Re: no sound.

Disconnect speakers one by one and reset the unit each time. If the speaker is blown, or the wires are frayed, it will shut down the internal amp. Also check the fuse in the back of the radio first, it should be near the wire harness. Power cycle the unit as well, unplug it from the power source, plug it back in. Hope this helps.

I have a kenwood kdc bt43u and transferred it, with my amp and rear speakers, to an identical vehicle. It all works fine until i use bluetooth. sound only comes from the front factory fitted speakers

Not quite sure what you are saying here but I am going to take a stab. If I am filling in the gaps but are the rear speakers wireless? If this is the case then they are not paired with the speakers but with your receiver deck. You will need to pair the speakers as well before it will play through them.

Look for loose or broken wiring connections. Swap front and rear speakers wires at radio and determine if problem is the radio or the speaker system.

Disconnect all the speaker leads and then hook one speaker (a new, known to work speaker) up directly to the radio using a short (6"-12") piece of speaker wire. Does that speaker work then?

Un hook all your speakers that the deck is powering and hook them up one by one sounds like u have a shorted speaker or wire and the unit is going into protection.The best way to chk the speakers and wires is with an ohm meter . Check each speaker wire to ground and across the speaker and see iof you have any shorts. The next step woulk be to remove the unit and have it bench tested.

Volume issues with clarion M309 installed on a boat

Hello jcox7704,

Your head unit is 50 watts X 4 channel maximum power and 21 watts RMS so it's possible that all you need is more power to the speakers. But even 21 watts RMS should be enough for normal speakers. Before investing in an amp, I'd check the speakers and their wiring. Measure the impedance (resistance) at the head unit side to see if they match up.

Hope this helps.

Kenwood deck reads protect and won't function

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.
