Kenwood UD-505 speaker problem

I have a Kenwood stereo of model number UD-505. I have attached two main speakers to the unit, as instructed in the owner's manual. I have then attached a centre speaker to the surround speakers port The speaker is hooked up to my TV through an RCA connection. I've been having a problem where whichever mode I choose, Dolby Surround, Pro Logic or 3-Speaker, I can't get the speakers to all work together. The large speakers work and the small centre speaker doesn't or the other way around. This speaker system in about 10 years old, so I haven't had any luck finding help anywhere else. Fingers crossed and thanks in advance.

The center speaker shouldn't be on the surround outputs it should be on the Center output. The surround outputs are for the rear speakers.

My panasonic dvd stereo system sa-pm91d when the volume is turned above 25, it plays distorted sound, it sounds like I have incorrectly tuned a radio channel even when using the auxiliary input

Hi Gusma,
If you have Distorted sound.
    These may be the causes of the problem:

  • Make sure the speakers wires are properly connected.Check the color codes, be sure they are rightfully followed.
  • - Shorting (bare wires touching) of positive and negative speaker wires.
  • - Using speakers with an impedance lower than that rated for this unit.
  • - Straining of the speakers through excessive volume or power.
  • - Using the unit in a hot environment without proper ventilation.
I am also including a link to the User Manual. Read it thoroughly.
Best of Luck,

Can I plug just one subwoofer into my Yamaha EMX88S? What kind of sub do I need to get for it? Do I need to have 2 subs plugged in for it to sound right? Do I daisy chain the subs with the A15 speakers I...

it is not reccomended to daisy chain passive subs with main speakers, because there is no crossover unit involved. you want a sub to have a crossover frequency around 100hz, so that only frequencies lower than this go through the subs, and not in the main speakers.

you could get away with 1 sub plugged into the mono output on the front, subs dont have to be stereo. you would need a self popwered sub, or an additional amplifier+crossover for passive subs. your best bet would to be to get a powered sub and hook it up to the front panel mono out. powered subs usually already have the crossover built--in.

Wireless speakers won't connect

You try upgrade the main set to 5.1 or 7.1 channel is it?

If the wireless is green light mean the main set is recognize the wireless.

You need to setup the speaker output from main set by "Setup" button on remote control.

Can refer Operating instruction manual in main set.

Yamaha rxv-992 receiver wont power up

Disconnect all your speakers from the receiver. Turn the power on, and see if it stays on. If the unit shuts off with all the speakers disconnected, then you most likely have a faulty unit, and it will need to be repaired or replaced.

If the unit stays on with all the speakers disconnected, then you most likely have a bad speaker or a bad connection with the speaker wire.

Starting with one speaker, hook it up, and turn the unit on, and again see if the unit stays on, or if it shuts off. Do this until the unit shuts off when you connect a speaker.

Then disconnect all the other speakers, and leave the suspect speaker attached. Again, try to power up the unit. If it fails with that speaker attached, but works when it is not attached, then that speaker is your problem.

Kenwood RD-VH7 cuts out

Hi all, I just had same problem on my RD-VH7, in fact i have two units, one works perfectly, any trouble, but other had same problem. Click and stop playing speakers. Really it's a "protection" of the system that overheat a lot. I need to comment that i repair it by myself and i recomend a little of knowledge about how desamble and resamble the unit, due to it's very compressed. The solutions is so easy. Simply the speakers terminals inside need be to re-weld them to the main board. Due to the overheating this make the welds maje a "fake contact" (sorry about my english) and the protection circuit activate this desconnection. I made this welding perfectly only on this terminals and now it works perfectly. The good news are that it's not an circuit problem. Hope this info can help all guys. Ciao
