1 wire might be a remote turn on 4 the lost amp. connect a light tester to the ground wire turn on and off the pre amp and see if the light goes on and off 1 might also be a floating ground wire .

Kenwood dnx514 not get no sound

The information you have provided is very limited. Have you powered up all amplifiers if an amplifier is In the vehicle. The radio could be broken but that is very unlikely but a possibility. A protection circuit in the radio could have ben activated from a bad speaker.

Kenwood kdc-148 is in protect mode why?

A car audio component like an amplifier (or in this case a headunit) is most likely to go into protection mode when there is a short in one of the speaker outputs-- in other words, if the + and - ends of one of the speaker leads are touching, this can cause damage to the internal amplifier of the unit. Some units will respond by putting the amplifier into "protection" mode, so that it does not damage itself. Check connections on the back of your unit, or take it back to the shop that installed it.

How to wire kenwood subwoofer to kenwood KAC-8404 car amplifier

Hi, this is a 4 channel amp. Not really designed for a sub, but you can use it that way. Cay you tell me all the speakers you want to hook up--need their sizes or frequency ranges and their impedances. Or, if you have model number for the sub that will do. Is it one sub or 2? I will then get back to you with a recommended setup. OK?

My kenwood "kdcmp628" reads the Cd and the equilizer shows the music playing but no sound is coming out. same with the Aux. input shows music playing but no sound. the speakers work because in...

Do you have more than one output? Does the radio have its own amp (it will have cooling fins on the back)? If yes to the first Q, its fixable. Yes 2 the 2nd Q, its trash.

I just bought a KDC MP-235 to put in a 95 camaro with bose amplified speakers. I ordered a amplifier intergration component to reduce the output of the 50 watt per channel head unit as to have better...


Yes, the Kenwood KDC MP-235 has two (2) line level outputs (RCA types red & white). However, these outputs internally passed through an electronic crossover/filter making them appropriate for subwoofer amps only.

If your unit is an MP-235CR, then the same outputs would be for the rear amp (not subs) and are full range (unfiltered).

If indeed your unit is an MP-235 and if I may make a suggestion, still connect the Kenwood to four (4) speakers. It would not be technically correct to leave the internal amps operating with no load (speakers) connected. Additionally, you would be getting 200 watts (4 X 50) more to your system (since it is already there).

If your Bose amp & speaker are subs, then no issue, however if the Bose is for a full range of speakers, then only the woofer part would be working efficiently.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
