Question about Car Audio & Video
I bought a kenwood kc-x1 and km-x1 preamp and tuner set. The preamp has no output to the amp. when I look at the volume setting and turn the volume control, no matter how far I turn the knob the numbers change 1 or 2 +/-. I was wondering if this was a common problem and what could be done to rectify it. I do not have the remote and the amp works just fine.

Assuming that the four speakers are connected to the amplifier, then the amp is the most likely problem component. Does the amplifier show a power light when the system is turned on? Note that there is probably another fuse in the amplifier power wire, near the battery.

Sounds like a low voltage to the front panel as the indicators are there such as control window illumination is dim and the remote does not function.
The remote sends an invisible signal to a detector just behind the front panel and if the signal from the remote is nice and strong from your new batteries in the remote then it must be the panel electronics.
I have found that if you clean the output panel of the remote with a damp cloth and the same to the front panel glass you may be lucky. Just Damp please not dripping in water!!!!!
If ypu keep the amplifier system very clean then this wont be the problem...But this action has worked on TV's with remotes...
If this doesnt work then a service is due....sorry....no quick fix..
Cheers YOU BEUT

I was able to use an universal remote control that I have, a Radio Shack Kameleon 6 in one remote control which I was able to program to run the audio portion of the Kenwood KC 206 control preamp. By adjust the remote sensor volume to max, I was able to get maximum volume out of the unit and drive the power section very nicely. Now I have to get up and manually turn the manual volume control for addition volume adjustment.
Hopefully Ken can find a remote that he can control the Kenwood control preamp the same way I did. Good luck here.
