Question about Audiovox BA100 Car Subwoofer

1 Answer

I have RCA preout connections at the back of my Kenwood CD player and I am needing to know do I connect here or do I just tap into the Rear Speaker wiring to power the + and - connections on the Subwoofer ? I currently have it connected to the rear of the CD player at the RCA plugs but the subwoofer is not functioning ... Thanks for your help ..

If I understand you right, you should be running a single wire to the amp in addition to the RCA's

Kenwood how to connect


You need a stereo mini to RCA cable to connect the laptop's headphone audio jack to the Kenwood. Here is an example of one below. They are very common and available at just about any electronics store for a few bucks.

http://www.amazon.com/Gemini-PH62089-Stereo-Mini-Male-RCA-Male/dp/B0001GAOE0

The Kenwood receiver should have a number of red and white "RCA" audio connectors on the back.

Just connect the RCA portion of the cable to a spare input. They should be clearly marked on the back of the unit and color coded (red for right channel and white for left channel). But it really doesn't matter if you mix the right and left up, it will still make sound.

EX:
Most receivers will have inputs that are labeled "CD" or "Aux" that you can connect any audio source to.

If you connect your laptop or an MP3 player to the audio input connections labeled "CD" behind the Kenwood receiver, you can listen to the device by selecting the CD as the source.

It is really easy!

MY KENWOOD CAR CD PLAYER IS SAYING PROTECT??


Hi,

Kenwood head units show "protect" when there's a problem with the speaker outputs. This might mean a shorted speaker wire, a blown speaker, or an internal defect in the head unit. Once the condition that's causing the "protect" mode is fixed, the CD player should be back in normal mode the next time you turn it on.

If it's staying in "protect", then you'll definitely have to remove the stereo and do some troubleshooting to fix it. Many car audio stores will do system troubleshooting, for a fee. If you want to do it yourself, here's what you need to do:

Pull the Kenwood unit from the dash and disconnect all the speaker wires. Turn it on and see if the "protect" message displays. If it does, the stereo has an internal defect and will need to be serviced. If it doesn't, then turn it off, and re-connect one speaker. Turn it on again and see if it displays "protect".

If it works with a single speaker connected, keep re-connecting the others until you identify the speaker that's causing the problem. There may be a wiring problem or defective speaker in that location.

If it displays "protect" with a single speaker connected, then disconnect that one and try a different one. If all the speakers cause a "protect" mode, then you're probably back to a defective head unit, unless your friend managed to blow all your speakers at once.

Thanks,

I have a kenwood kdc-w3541 cd player and would like to wire it to a 4ch amp can you tell me how to wire it....thanks


Your kenwood only has preouts for a subwoofer. If you want to add the amp the amp will need to have some high inputs. If it does not then you will need to buy an accessory that will allow you to connect speakers and have rca outputs. From there yo will need two sets of rca jacks to run to the amplifier.

Cant get bass, fuse is fine


You don't say if you've configured the Receiver to know you have a subwoofer (under Multicontrol - SUBW YES). Unless it knows about the Sub it won't send anything out that single "preout". You can get an RCA splitter to run that single output to both inputs in the Sub.

Just as an experiment, temporarily run one a pair of cables from the REC OUT to the Sub's inputs and tune an FM station to prove the Sub amplifier is alive. If it's still silent, it's dead. If there is sound (muffled) you need to go back to the Receiver to figure out why the Sub Preout is signal-starved.

HOW DO I INSTALL A RCA ADAPTER TO MY VEHICLE


There should be a diagram entitled "adding and amplifier to a factory stereo" in the owner/install manual of the high to low convertor. You need to signal tap some audio signal from your front or rear stock speakers in the car and those wires need hook up to the high to low convertor's input side. From the convertor you connect RCAs that go to your amp. In other words find your rear speaker wires and hook them to your adapter then hook up the rca wires

Yes you can use the speaker output in conjuction with the rca pre-outs...but depending on the wattage of the amp, there may be a big difference between the loudness of the front speakers over the rear speakers. If you have a 4 channel amp you can put the rear speakers on the amp also and lower the input gain for the rear speaker. Or if you have a 2 channel amp, you could use a passive crossover to filter out some of the bass to the rear speakers since they are smaller, this would help prevent over-driving them...as it is normally too much bass that distorts and blows a speaker. I'm not sure what you are asking about the hi-rear preouts vs the mid front pre-outs. If you decide to use the amp for the fronts you should be able to connect the amp from the front preouts of the deck. Hope this helps.
