The subwoofer output on my Kenwood VR-606 has suddenly stopped working. I have tried the "setup" several times, turning the subwoofer off and back on. Also, when I first power up the system, it emits a low...


It sounds like the problem is not with your VR-606. If you hear a hum from the sub, the problem is more likely to be in the sub's built-in power amplifier. However, it is worth resetting the amplifier to factory presets. To do this, unplug the power cable from the mains supply and reconnect whilst holding down the power on/standby key. If the hum persists, connect any powered speaker to the sub-out socket, power on and listen for the hum. If no hum then suspect the powered sub amp. Turn the sub on with no connection to the Kenwood VR-606. If hum persists, the sub has a problem and will need to be replaced or repaired. By the way, you said there is a low frequency hum through the 'speakers' for about 30 mins. Is that all speakers or just the sub? Hope this helps.
Cheers, Don.

Manuals help. Read them. Nothing in your receiver is actually a multichannel source so you'll be needing to understand the external sources that originate that kind of programming. Manuals.

'Large' is not literal in the context of Bass Management. It refers to the ability of a given speaker to handle REAL bass. Yes = Large, No = Small. 'Small' redirects bass from that speaker channel to the sub.

Web search concepts like bass management, speaker placement, multichannel sound, digital audio, etc.

I installed a Pioneer DEH-P800PRS head unit and 4 Kenwood KFC-1662S speakers in my 2003 Dodge Dakota extended cab truck. I used a Kenwood KAC-5204 2 channel amp connected in parallel. Sounds good at lower...


Hello.... sorry to hear about your problem. Bass is the ultimate evil of coaxial speakers. You have a couple of options here, and this is just my professional opinion because I do not know what your lifestyle details, such as truck space needs, type of music you listen to, budget, etc. If you are looking for alot of bass, the best bet would be to use 2 external amplifiers, 1 for the interior speakers, and 1 for a subwoofer. You would then need to purchase an electronic crossover. With this setup, you can remove all of the low frequencies from the coaxial speakers and put them where they belong, with the sub. You will gain EXCEPTIONAL clarity and a very high volume before distortion level. Again it will depend on what your budget is and if you are willing to compromise on some cab space. The only other option you have at this point is if you are wanting to play your music at high volume levels, you will just need to reduce the bass level as you increase volume. I hope this has helped. Good luck with your venture!!

Connect a Sony SA-W3800 powered subwoofer to a kenwood receiver


Yes. It needs to know you have a subwoofer or it won't send low frequencies out to one. Then you have to calibrate its level to match the rest of your speakers. Hit the SETUP section in the manual (available at retrevo.com).

I cannot get the volume to go above +13 therefore I cannot hear from the speaker son my kenwood vr-5900. It is about 7 years old.


Ok one more clarification, does the volume knob spin infinitley or does it have a set min and max. If it spins infinitley it is an encoder. What an encoder basically does is send a binary signal to a decoder chip which in turn should control a digital potentiometer. Unfortunatley one of these components may be bad.

Kenwood vr-5900 no sound


Check you settings on the receiver. get into the menu of the unit and check the "Audio" settings. if you can choose by specific input, select "Digital" otherwise, select "Auto" that should correct the problem. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot some more.

I own a Kenwood vr 6060. My speakers make a poping sound when I pause the DVD player. I've tried connecting different speakers, and the problem still occurs. Is this a setting issue or a hardware...


This is more likely a problem with the CD player, not the receiver. The CD player has what are called "muting" transistors that should prevent the creation of the "pop". Try the CD on another system. I suspect that the pop will follow the CD player. If this is the case, close this question as "solved" and post a the make and model of the CD player requesting a fix for a muting transistor problem.

Please keep us posted,

Dan

Dual voice coil speakers


best way to do this to preserve your amp and speaker is to wire the speaker Voice coils in series.

VC1 = Voice coil 1

AMP + to VC1 +
VC1 - to VC2 +
VC2 - to Amp -

Set you amps bass gain down very low. Crank up the volume with a bass test audio track. Turn the switch to LPF or Low pass filter. Adjust a LPF to about 60 hz Adjust the bass gain up until your Sub begins to sound sitorted or choppy. Then tune the bass gain just below where it distorts. Then you are set.
