Hi there JT,

An Amp makes existing sound louder. If you aren't getting sound now, there's a problem.

From your description, it sounds like your stereo is going through all the motions, it looks and acts like it is functioning. Just no sound.

If that is wrong, let me know.

When you turn it on, do you hear anything from the speakers? White noise, a click, anything, any indication that they are hooked to any kind of power supply?

Let's do the basics (easiest) first:

  • Mute is off
  • Balance and Fader centered
  • Volume up
  • CD in and playing
Still nothing? OK.
  • I need you to access the back of the stereo. (Sorry)
  • Yellow and red are power. Black is ground. The unit works so these are ok. Blue is to turn on a remote device like an amp. There may be an orange, ignore.
  • There are four sets of wire for the speakers. Colors are White, Gray, Purple and Green. One of each set is solid colored, the other has a stripe.
  • White and gray are front
  • Purple and green are back. Same page?
  • These are what your speakers should be hooked to. One set for each speaker. Are they?
  • Eyeball the connects, look for shorts, disconnects, etc.
  • Get a speaker and test it right there behind the stereo on one set after another. Anything? If so, you have a problem in the wiring not the stereo
That's enough for now. I'd hate to write a book and have you solve the thing in chapter one. Get back to me with the answers and results. Those results will decide the next course of action (Unless of course it's fixed by then, in which case let me know with a nice FixYa rating).

The fact that your speakers have only one wire, indicates that they are the old negative ground type. You will have to buy new speakers, or try and connect the negative wires of your speaker wires from the radio to the car body (chassis) and try that. Normally you will get a bit of static when you start your engine

Hi, My friend (who has a visual impairment) moved house recently, they own a Kenwood KR - V5570, I assisted with re setting up PC etc. I am now baffled with connecting her left and right speakers to this...

If you keep guessing you may succeed in blowing something up.

The cables have RCA connectors or bare wires for a reason.

Get the manual out and read it.

Don't pay too much attention to the actual colors of speaker wire. Use the colors as reference. Each speaker has a plus and a minus. Connect them to corresponding plus and minus for their respective amplifier outputs.

Playing cd's no sound from the speakers when I have the cd/dvd option selected. When I put the reciever on I can hear dead air coming thru the speakers but not when I have the cd switch selected....

You need to find the manual and/or read and understand every indicator and evaluate how it affects the sound. Use a medium volume setting while troubleshooting.Check connections.

Start with the basics. Speaker test ok? FM ok. Digital sources assigned yada yada.

Can't get my speakers to work with kenwood vr-307 and cd player. manual is of little help. any suggestions? i think i know how to hook up the speaker wires, but maybe i am missing a mute or other...

Start with the basic setup in the manual. Test tones - work or not?


Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

Installing self amplified sub to factory stereo

Hello Jax GS300,

Yes, you can use RCA cables. Just wire in a "low-level" converter.

Using RCA's is really the best way, allowing you to run shielded wiring to the sub, making it less likely that the wiring will pick up electrical interference. I'd install the converter on the rear speaker wires behind the dash.

If you do not want to convert the speaker output, you can drive the Kenwood directly from the speaker wires. The diagram in the install manual shows the connections coming off the rear speakers.

Here's a link to one output converter. This one will convert all 4 speakers.

Hope this helps.
