Kenwood 138 and Performance Teknique 752 speaker problem

Bought used car with no radio. Had a Kenwood 138 radio installed but only occasional sound. I checked the speakers which are Performance Tekinique 752's which are 4 ohms 400 watts peak. When I press on the element, I get sound. Are the speakers bad? What 5" speakers do you recommend that are not too expensive.

Hello passionatete,

It sure sounds like the speakers are bad. When I looked these up, the specifications said they are 5 1/4 inch. You should listen to a few different speakers in the size that you require, to see what ones you like best. I'd first make sure of the exact size. Many 5 1/4" speakers have tabs that allow them to be mounted in 6 1/2" openings. The best way to determine which speakers fit is to use the "outfit my car" feature at www.crutchfield.com. They have speakers starting at around $35 per pair. Another good online site for research and for purchase is www.sonicelectronix.com. Sonicelectronix sells speakers starting as low as about $20 per pair.

Kenwood, JVC, Sony, Blaupunkt, and Orion are all excellent speakers for under $30. There's others like Boss, Scosche, Power Acoustik, and Visonik that cost even less. Again, I'd listen first, and then buy.

Hope this helps.

Is the icbm-9711 is a good product


I've never used the products before, but the amps are usually pretty good. I would go with a different company though. I would go with Pioneer, Kenwood, or even Alpine. I know they're a little more expensive, but they've ALL been making head units longer. Several years ago Kenwood hit their 25th anniversary.

Kenwood kdc-138, NO SOUND, CD PLAYER NO RESPONDING


First thing you need to do is make sure you dont have a short in the speaker wires.. if any one of them touches ground it kills the system.. then you have to remove all the wires and start over... disconnect the battery... remove all the speaker wires only and then turn it on and reset it... then again remove the battery from the car and install them all make sure nothing is touching then turn it back on and see if that works.. you can also test to make sure you speaker wires are good by using a 9v battery and touching positive and negative of each speaker to the positive and neg of the battery... JUST FOR A SECOND it will pop.. that means your wires are good and no shorted to that speaker.

Kenwood KDC-138 Operation Problem


Here's the quote from the manual regarding "dcer": "The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle and then the protection function is activated. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. If the "PROTECT/DCER" code does not disappear, consult your nearest service center "

I believe the manual can be downloaded from crutchfield .com after you go to the Kenwood KDC-138 page on their website. The reset button is either on the lower left of the face or, removing the face, on the lower left of the body. Hope this helps you.

Not enough power delivered


This sounds like a gain setting problem on your amp. The best way to adjust is to set your volume on the head unit to about 75% volume and then adjust the gain up until it sounds distorted a little. Back it off jst enough for the distortion to go away and you are set. Only other thing to try is use a multimeter set on Ohms to test the resistance of your speaker configuration. Looks like 2000 is th peak power (not RMS) and is only possible at high current configurations. You are probably running at 4 Ohms, but this amp only puts out rated power at 1 ohm stereo or 2 ohm bridged. Many people say Performance Technique are overrated, so maybe not even what it is rated at - 350 x 2 @ 2 ohms bridged (probably only about 175 x 2 at 4 ohms bridged)
