KENWOOD Power Amplifier

I tried to connect my set of Kenwood KM-894 power amplifier, KE-894 graphic equaliser and KT 594 to my Bose speakers which had been working perfectly with my Pioneer amplifier and a sound mixer but sadly I did get any sound.  In the manual I saw references to KA-994.  Do I need to have a surround receiver or better still do I need KA- 994 surround receiver in particular to get the sound?  Could I use the power amp alone with my other equipment? 
I need assistance real quick

The power amp does need an imput signal ie. tuner, cd , and such to play. You can use the power amp with the other equipment.
Good Luck

How do I turn the volume up and down on a Kenwood tuner KT-56

Hello, according to the information I have, the Kenwood KT-56 tuner is just that. This means in order to have volume control you will need an amplifier. The KT-56 only allows changing of the stations, pre setting stations and may be a couple of more options. But it is only a tuner or simply put a display, now you need to put power behind it to make it put out sound.

Kenwood ka 996 integrated amp. The standby light will dont turn off. I also need to see if someone will tell how everything should be hooked up.

the standby light should be on if the unit is not 'ON' if you want the 894 to turn on when you power up the 996, then you will have to plug the ac for the 894 into the 'switched' ac outlet on the back of the 996
what specific problems do you have with this system

I just got a Kenwood system, i would like to know how to hook it up, it has, Kenwood power amplifier km207, kenwood stereo control amplifier kc 207, disc player dp-m 97, cassette deck ky-77 cw, stereo...

That's a pretty standard setup. RCA cables from the KM207 to the preamp (KC207), and RCA cables from all of the other components into the KC207. Speakers connect into the KM207

How to wire up kenwood ge-760 graphic to my

First of all connect the source, the tape or the DVD, to the input of the equaliser, use the output to connect to the AUX of the amplifier. make sure that the L&R are not crossed over. In case your amp has an in and out of the preamp section use then connect the source to the amplifiers input specified for the source like tape or DVD or TV and use the preamp output to the equaliser input and the output of the equaliser to the input of the main ampflier. Now the bass and treble of your amp can be set to the mid point - 12 noon position and use the boost or attenuation according to your choice of music. hope you find my advice helpful. Good day

Am trying to hook up an older kenwood home stereo system and dont know where all of the wires go. There is a model #kt-87synthesizer, km-207 amplifier, double cassette kx-77cw, stereo control amp kc-207...

Okay you are going to need 5 sets of RCA cables of 3 foot lengths. Ensure the KM-207 is adequately ventilated unless you want to burn up the KM-207. Next you will want to place the KC-207 near the KM-207 and connect the "Output to Amp" from the KC-207 to the "Input" to the KM-207. Now you may stack the KX-77CW, the DP-M97 and the KT-87 Tuner in no particular order. I tend to place them sideways so I may access them just in case I don't like how it is set up. Unless I can access them from the back. "Output" or "Play" from the DP-M207 goes into the "CD Input" in the back of the KC-207. "Output" or "Record" on the KC-207 "Tape 1" goes into the "Input or "Record" on the KX-77CW. "Output"or "Play" on the KX-77CW goes into the "Input" or "Play" on the "Tape 1" of the KC-207. "Output" on the KT-87 Tuner goes into the "Tuner Input" on the KC-207. Here is a trick to help you new stuff uses color codes such as White or Blue RCA cable ends, and Red RCA cable ends to indicate White or Blue for Left channel and Red for Right channel. Now you didn't indicate how to hookup speakers so I will not assume you are concerned about anything but using headphones for listening. I hope this has been of assistance.

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.
