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.

I just installed a kenwood dnx7140. Everything is


Have you checked to see if the sub amp is turning on. Check to make sure you have at least 12 volts on your power as well as your remote turn on (Blue/White on radio harness).
If everything is hooked up correctly, it is possible that the preout is turned off. Some headunits have selectable preouts. If so you should be able to turn the sub on and off in the menu.
Hope this helps

Kenwoodxw1000f shut off after 10 sec


the problem sounds like your new sub is drawing to much power and your amp can not handle it. bridging the amp is a good way to get the full power out of your amp. But it isnt always suggested, my solution is to get a bigger amp. I install stereo systems for a living, and i tell my customers that it is smart to get an amp about 100 more watts then the rms rating of your subwoofer.

I need help with a system that I just bought.


Well it should be like this...Your amp is prologic which means that it has 5+1 outputs (sub out may be for active sub).Connect your speakers on specific output for each one (center,front left,front right,rear left,rear right and sub).Other devices,CD,tuner...connect to the amp with signal RCA-RCA cabels.On the back of the amp you have all marked inputs.You wasn't specific what do you want to hook?!If you want to hook this "new" to kenwood connect rec out of it to aux in on kenwood.If oposite kenwood rec out to "new" aux in.Hope that this is what you need

I don't know why you'd set the Peavey to 2 ohm to drive 8 ohm speakers??? My other thought is... I wonder if the phase is correct. try reversing one of the speaker wires Left or right side.
