If the head unit has RCA output connectors, the amp plugs into them.

Buy a rca to aux 3mm plug then you can connect to aux port.
RCA out is for the signal to the amp from the Head Unit. Mic is probably for your cell phone.

How to hook up a kenwood amp.kac-5204


All amps are basicly the same. It should be plain as day where the speakers connect to.
The 12V screw connects to the main power from battery, be sure to fuse that wire and use a proper size wire, thicker is better,I suggest at least 8gauge with 40amp fuse. The GND is ground and should connect to car metal, file paint for soild connection. The REM is remote and connects to the remote of headunit or if you have a stock deck to the acc of car found in wire harness of headunit. Plug in the RCA's to head unit, or get a converter to plug into speaker wires from car if you have a stock headunit.

Amp comes on but no sound to the subs and i think i checed all wires and even got new rcas


Hi mate

I know loads of ppl who have had the same problem.
Are you getting an output from ur headunit RCA's? Sometimes you need to turn the sub RCA's on via ur headunit. I would make sure im getting an output from the headunit first.

Which wire is my amp power wire on a kenwood kdc-x617


hey mate,

You will need to run independent power and ground wires for the amp, then run your RCA leads from your headunit to your amp, the trigger wire to turn your amp on and off with the headunit is the pink and black wire in the kenwood wiring harness...

Hope this helps

Brad:)

Amp will not come on ,no light


Yes!!!!!!!!!! Your remote wire is what tells your amplifier to turn on and off it won't work without it. Assuming your stereo headunit is an after market unit it has the correct wire for this. what you have to do is pull out you headunit, and in the back of the headunit where all the wires plug into your unit there is blue wire with a white stripe. this is the remote turn on wire. connect a wire to that blue n white wire and run it back to your amp, insert it into to the spot marked remote. turn your head unit on and your amp will power up... if you have all the rca cables hooked up your amp should be ready to go.... btw good choice on the amp, kenwood is the way to go!

Stuck in ''Protect'' mode Phoenix Gold Ryval v8001monoblock


OK try this little trick i have to resort to on Saturday afternoons when the shop is about to close and i have a date who works in the adult entertainment industry.... AAhheeemmm..
1. Does your amp have a high input port? This is where instead of RCA's you feed it speaker output from your head unit?
2 If so try this and see if the magic happens.. If it doesn't your screwed and the problem is internal most likely in the input stage and that's why your having to "fool" the amp.
3. Also take off the remote turn on wire and make a short little jumper from the remote turn on to the B+ on the amp. Yeah the amp will blaze on but see if it changes the output. I know it sounds crazy but after 26 years working with this stuff i know where the gremlins hang out... Especially Rockford .
godd luck. let me know

Amp works but no sound from sub


Some older Pioneer radios require you to connect the Subwoofer RCA to the rear output on the back of the radio and then you have to turn on the subwoofer in the menu on the radio. What model Pioneer radio is it? Also, make sure that the RCA plugged into the amp is on the input side, not the output side.

Connecting a amp


It has a remote output if it also has RCA pre-outputs. The remote output wire is blue with a white stripe.
