I am not sure about the LED fault lights....but I have a few troubleshooting angles to provide a start:

Try checking the power supply at the output devices and compare with the good (Left) channel.

The distortion you are hearing may be due to
low voltage.

This is a stereo amp, so you have a good (Left) channel to compare with. Use a multimeter to compare resistances (no power applied) or voltages (power on) at the components working back from the outputs of each channel. When you find a difference you have located the faulty area.
If you can get an oscilloscope it can also be used to trace the path back from the output of each amp. Good Luck Be careful!

Kenwood KA-76 amp. Left channel distorts and unit overheats then shuts down when volume is turned up. Headphones are not affected.


what happens if you reconnect left and right speakers? Are these problems of the unit or of the speakers/wires?

I have 2 12in kenwoods and a 1200 watt pyrimade amp, how can i hook these up to be the loudest


1st have your subs facing inwards towards the front of the car, not facing out the boot, This creates a better bass.

Wire 1 sub to one channel and the other sub to the other channel.

Turn down your gain as low as possible and then power everything up.

turn volume to desired loudness and then start turning up the gain slowly, if distorts a little turn in back down a notch.

avoid using bass boost, I agree it sounds great but it puts more strain on your amp and shortens its life.

after sorting out your gain, tweak all others until sound is bassy and clear with no distortion.

If you would like to use bass boost, turn on bass boost first, then up your gain etc.

How to connect a kenwood ka- 9100 to a pioneer vsx-d608


You don't say, what role the Kenwood is supposed to play but I'll assume you want to slave the Kenwood (and its speakers) to the Pioneer.

The VSX-D608 doesn't have multi-channel pre-outs so you wouldn't have local control of the volume at the Pioneer.

http://www.auctiva.com/hostedimages/showimage.aspx?gid=108365&ppid=1122&image=404270323&images=404269872,404269931,404269984,404270049,404270137,404270323&formats=0,0,0,0,0,0&format=0

The KA could be a subwoofer amp as the Pioneer has a pre-out for that.

Outs to Ins. "Power In" on the KA would be for an external volume-controlled source. Otherwise, use one of its non-Phono inputs.

How to hook up 4 speakers up to kenwood k a c 7204


There are 2 ways. The first is in series. Connect in this order (amp)+ to (speaker1)+, (speaker1)- to (speaker2)+, (speaker2)- to (amp)-. Repeat for second channel. The amp will run smoother but you cut your power in half. The second way is parallel. (amp)+ to (speaker1)+ to (speaker2)+, (amp)- to (speaker1)- to (speaker2)-. Repeat for second channel. This will double the power but will cause more heat and distortion. Too much heat and distortion make it no worky.

The subs aren't pushing out bass.


Hello crobins2,

The Kenwood KAC-6202 2-channel is only rated for 60 watts RMS per channel into a 4 ohm load. That just isn't much power for a pair of 12" subs. Even the bridged output is only 200 watts into 4 ohms, still at the low end for a sub, much less to share between a pair of subs.

Assuming that your subs are 4 ohm, you could probably get more sound by driving just one of them on the bridged terminals. But to get the best power with what you have, connect one sub to each channel, set the filter switch to the far right (LPF), set the operation switch to stereo (both channels driven), set the filter frequency (Hz) to 100 or lower, and adjust the input sensitivity as far clockwise as possible without causing distortion.

But, to do the subs justice, you really need at least 300-400 watts to share between them.

Hope this helps.

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.
