bigger the better my friend. Look at your Peak RMS output, and how long of wire you need. Then you could make the judgment call on how thick or what gauge you need. (2 involved factors power + distance). id say 10 gauge and you would be fine.

I would try to remove the top cover of the amp and you might be able to push them out from the inside. Just a shot in the dark.

How to install kenwood 729s withno rca outlet on radio


You can run the speaker wires to the speaker level input on the amp or i believe you can run another set of speaker wires spliced into the existing wires in parallel to the speaker level input along with the speakers that are already hooked up if you are using the amp for a sub or other speakers that you have added to the existing system.

Power is hooked up. Ground is connected. Both subs are connected. The triangle light is red, and there is now sound. All wires are hooked correctly...


on most amp red isnt good that means it in protection mode try turning your setting on the amp down all the way and turn the volume down tell you can get sound out of them then turn up the volume to were you would to them most and set the to what sounds the best but make sure the light doesnt dim down when the base hits

I have 2 10' sony xplodes connected to a 2


If your radio is still playing and the subs are giving you music, you most likely have the amp remote wire hooked to a constant power source on the radio. Generally, this is a solid blue wire on both the radio and the wiring harness. It allows the radio to turn the amp on and off when the radio is on or, subsequently, off.

I bought a kenwood kac 7204 amp yesterday and i hooked it up to one 12 and one 10 and it sounds good but it gets really hot and it even shuts off do you know what might be my problem??


What is the impedance you are driving. If the load is too low then it will cause the amp to go into thermal shutdown. Look up the recommended impedance for this amp.
