KEnwood SW-305 no out put

I have a Kenwood SW-305 that does not output any sound. I have checked the fuses and they ohm good. The power light comes on but no volume. I put another sub on the system to see if there was a problem with the pre out and the second sub worked.There appears to be no measureable out put to the speaker. I did check the speaker on a different sub amp and it did work.Any ideas?

SOURCE: 4 ohm and 8 ohm speakers

You can plug in higher ohm speakers , the higher the ohm the higher the resistance is, it is a danger when you plug lower ohm speakers into a higer ohm Amp , at a high volume that will cause them to blow , the center speaker would be fine to use a higer ohm speaker , your best choice is to buy a Active Subwoofer, which means the sub has it's own power supply , and u can blast the thing as much as u like , thn u can turn the bass down on all the other speaker's so u can play it louder , and have the sub turned up has high as u like , this is the best way to get great sound with high volume , buy a Active sub woofer , any active subwoofer is ok , a active sub woofer has its own volume and inputs on the speaker ,

SOURCE: Fuse keeps blowing?

The fuse is a protective device. Fuses dont blow unless the amp ( in your case ) is drawing too much current. DO NOT put a bigger fuse in. Obviously, there is a problem with the amplifier inside the sub. If the sub is under warranty, send it in for repair to an authorized warranty depot. If not it's not under warranty, then take it to the authorized warranty depot anyway. Why ? because they will have the schematics ( electrical diagrams ) to troubleshoot the unit quickly and it may be a common problem. If it is a common problem, the factory may have released a modification and possibly it could be covered under warranty under a factory 'goodwill' program. Good luck. Rob

I have Kenwood SW 900 . need to know its out put. Kept for long period


Do you mean the Kenwood SW-200 subwoofer or the SW-200 power meter? The subwoofer can use 50W RMS at 4 Ohms. It's rated at 60W. The power meter reads in two ranges: 20W and 200W.

Kenwood has the manual for the subwoofer on their support site. The direct link to the manual is http://kenwoodusa.com/UserFiles/File/UnitedStates/Home/Manuals/sw200.pdf .

I hope this helps. If you are looking at a different Kenwood product, please clarify which product you have. I can't find a SW 200 receiver from Kenwood.

Kenwood sw-35ht Replace with a kicker sub


I suppose you could, but you are talking about a driver (speaker) that was not designed for that cabinet size and amplifier used in the Kenwood, There are differences in speaker design besides power rating and impedance.

Kenwood kac 628 red light comes on and no audio output


The red light you describe on your amp, is the protection mode warning light. An amp goes into protect for many reasons. Here's a checklist.

1st check the fuse (s) on your amp and make sure they are not blown.

2nd check the inline fuse next to your car battery (if you have an inline fuse)

3rd, disconnect the speaker wires with amp on, does the light go off?

4th check your ground, this may be ok if you have tried another amp with the same wires.

5th.if none of these turns the protect mode off, it may be an internal fault.

you may have blown transistors and it is a tricky job to repair and costly.

I need an appropriate speaker for my kenwood amplifier kac-5202


This amp is stable down to 4 ohms bridged at 120 Watts or 2 ohms stereo at 60 Watts X 2. If you are going with the bridged mono hookup just make sure the impedance of your subwoofer is no less than 4 ohms. A good rule of thumb is to be at least double of what your amps rated output power is. So if your amp can put out 120 Watts into 4 ohms then get at least a 240 watt subwoofer.


Do not exceed the rated load for your amp, you will damage it. Here is the datasheet for your amplifier

My Kenwood KAC-929 gets power but DOES NOT put any sound out. Whats My Possible problem(s).


Hello Spicer_kyle6,

Possible problems: 1) No output from the head unit. Try a different set of preamp outs. 2) No input to the amp. Check the RCA's and make sure that they are good and coming from a functioning preamp or subwoofer output on the head unit. 3) Input gain turned off or down too low. 4) Speaker wiring shorted, grounded, or open. Check all wires. 5) Speakers defective. Connect to a known good output to test. 6) The amp itself could be defective and still show a power-on indication.

Hope this helps.

No sound from my woofer


Check your speaker connections... try using a multimeter set to "OHMS" and see if the speaker is reading around 4-8 ohms... if it shows no reading there is no continuity in the coil of the speaker
