Kenwood KVT-617DVD Reduced volume and distortion

I just bought and installed it today. Its plays flawlessly for about 15 minutes and then the volume is reduced and the sound gets distorted. When the unit is shut off for a while, it works fine again for about 15 minutes and the same thing repeats.....Please help...any ideas?

Why does my car stereo overheat after 15-20 minutes?


There clearly is a fault. Probably with the output or driver stage bias. Something is getting hot and as it heats its value is changing. It will probably need an engineer with a service sheet to locate the fault. It is rarely the obvious culprit...

Low output with high volume


sounds like distortion is being caused by trying to amplify a low volume level from the input device. try putting the ipod volume at a medium level and try again to see if the distortion goes away/reduced

FM 65R plays and sounds great for about 5- 10 minutes then it sounds weak and distorted. If I play directly into the power amp input it sounds great again just no control for the volume and tone.


Also the volume will probably be lower going into the line level PA input... If the amp is shutting down for thermal reasons, driving it less might not get to the point of shutdown. The schematic shows a temp sensor that reduces and shuts down the amp if the heatsinks get to hot. Possibly you are driving the amp harder than it is intended, If it is as loud (I doubt it) driving the PA input, then I would expect it to shutdown, but you would probably have to drive it harder than your guitar because guitar levels are well below line level. The amp claims 65 watts... don't believe everything you read in spec sheets... You should be able to generate 100 Db of sound with it... The more distortion you use will drive the amp harder and heat the heatsinks faster.

I have a CS361 plantronics wireless headset and I get alot of echoing when I get calls in and out, and when I call my coworker


Reduce speaking volume by changing the speaking volume
major adjust switch setting. See page 15 in the User's Guide (link below).
• Point microphone towards your chin.
• Listening volume too high on phone. If your phone has a handset
volume control, lower this until the distortion disappears.
• If the distortion is still present, lower the listening volume adjust
button on the headset. If the distortion persists, select another
listening volume major adjust switch setting. See page 14 in User's Guide.
• Base is too close to computer or phone. See page 9 in User's Guide for
proper positioning.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

I installed a Pioneer DEH-P800PRS head unit and 4 Kenwood KFC-1662S speakers in my 2003 Dodge Dakota extended cab truck. I used a Kenwood KAC-5204 2 channel amp connected in parallel. Sounds good at lower...


Hello.... sorry to hear about your problem. Bass is the ultimate evil of coaxial speakers. You have a couple of options here, and this is just my professional opinion because I do not know what your lifestyle details, such as truck space needs, type of music you listen to, budget, etc. If you are looking for alot of bass, the best bet would be to use 2 external amplifiers, 1 for the interior speakers, and 1 for a subwoofer. You would then need to purchase an electronic crossover. With this setup, you can remove all of the low frequencies from the coaxial speakers and put them where they belong, with the sub. You will gain EXCEPTIONAL clarity and a very high volume before distortion level. Again it will depend on what your budget is and if you are willing to compromise on some cab space. The only other option you have at this point is if you are wanting to play your music at high volume levels, you will just need to reduce the bass level as you increase volume. I hope this has helped. Good luck with your venture!!

Sound plays distorted but sound card is working .


Sounds like you need to check the connection to your sound system. Could be the jack is not in properly or there`s a short in the cable to your soudn system. Check the cable if necessary. You might also be overloading the input on your soudn sytem so try to reduce the volume of the computer and raise the volume on the sound system. If your cable is shorting or coming loose inside the jack you will have problems.
