Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

The unit is working through a KS-FX470R, which functions fine. The output to speakers on the radio is exceellent. However when a CD is played the output on LHS is there but distorted & crackly & on RHS is non-existent bar for very quiet crackles. The car had its engine removed & replaced, so I have tried a reset-doesn't work. I have traced cable-all looks OK. No obvious problem. Unit is fitted vertically in boot of MG TF & have had no problem for 5 1/2 years.

Hey cd sound problems are in most cases a dirty laser lens, you can use a cd lens cleaner disc on it to clean it. for example: http://www.amazon.com/Dry-Automobile-CD-Lens-Cleaner/dp/B0002IEEUC

04 Infiniti sedan w/ factory Bose. Front speakers are not working (no sound at all) and I adjusted fade all the way both ways. Back speakers are fine. What's up?


If the rear speakers are fine, perhaps I can narrow this down. Fuses must be OK. Steering wheel audio controls connect to the audio unit which has a preamp function. The W/BK outputs connect to the left front inputs of the Bose speaker amplifier; the GRN/RED outputs connect to the right front inputs. Your ear test confirms the front door speakers are not working, therefore there is no front door output from the amplifier. The amplifier stages for the front doors may not be working or no front door amplifier input is being received from the audio unit. The fader and balance controls do not show on the diagram so must be on the front panel. They could be defective. There is a remote possibility of broken/disconnected wires

take one of the front speakers out and pull out the head unit and unplug a set of audio wires(front right, front left ect.) and hook it up directly from the radio to the speaker there for bypassing all the cars wires. If it works then there's a problem with the car's wiring(maybe an inline amp). If it doesn't work, then try a known good speaker from somewhere else(home stereo speaker for example) and connect it to the radio, if the speaker works, your radio is fine and there may be a problem with the speakers. If it doesn't work then you have a problem with the head unit.

Everything is hooked up fine. the amp has power but no sound. I opened the amp and nothing looks burnt out.


Try you sub(s) on another amp...if they play off of it then its either your speaker outputs off of the amp or your rcas or wire from your radio are bad.

Kenwood ks-122 in-dash car stereo/cd changer


hello chevi1981..what can happen is if whoever installed your system did not run your speaker wires properly eg if they have worn through and touching metal or a screw through the wires ,it can blow the audio ics in unit resulting in no sound.all these high powered units have above ground circuits in the audio stage .to check ,hook up a separate speaker direct to your unit,separate wiring ,if no sound, will most likely be the intergrated circuits..these will have to be changed by a tech as cd players are a beast to work on,also your 2 speaker wires should not touch one another.with your sec code if your have a removable face you may not have a code ,as removing face is your security .hope this helps

Alpine cda-7892 Head unit overheating


Certainly, the output IC might need to be replaced, also check to see if there is a factory amp somewhere in the car. Additionally, double-checking the wiring is a must. How long does it take for the unit to heat up?
