Question about Kenwood KDC-MP228 CD Player

New speakers are fuzzy

I just bought a new car and the speakers were really fuzzy and popped and all the symptoms of blown speakers when i turned the volume high. The speakers weren't stock speakers. The owners had them replaced with 220W kenwoods and replaced the stereo with a panasonic. So i got new speakers, kenwood 500W, and a new kenwood stereo. It sounds exactly the same when i turn it up. Still fuzzy and pops. Any advice?

If it is an older vehicle you could have interference from the ignition system. You can wire the radio to be powered up from a toggle switch that get its power straight from the battery, with a fuse between the battery and switch of course. This will eliminate powering up the radio with the ignition switch and take the ignition system out of it. Also need to make sure the ground wire is grounded good and the ground wire is the same wire guage if not larger than the power wire.

it sounds like a blown channel in the amp.open the amp and see if there are any fuses that might be blown.it might be a blown capacitor which a tech should be able to easily fix

2010 VW CC factory stereo amp popping sound


If the amplifier itself is making the popping sound I suggest you disconnect it immediately, as it could be an electrical short within the amp. If the popping sound is actually coming from the speakers, it could be due to a crossed wire, blown amp channel, or blown speaker. If you posses the technical know-how, you can test the amp channel and speaker by connecting a different speaker to the channel responsible for the popping sound. If the new speaker makes the same popping noise then it is most likely a blown channel. I hope this helps =)

Why do my right speaker inputs cause fuzzy sound?


HI KYLE...

I think I have experienced this problem before with my Sony stereo set. It could be a sign that your receiver's amplifier is giving out. Best that you can do is bring it over to an audio repair shop for a checkup. If my suspicion is right, you're gonna have to replace it with a new one. Don't worry, amplifier chips are not that expensive.

And lastly, when any part or component is replaced, be sure to ask the technician to give it to you. You can keep it for your reference.

Jensen vm9411 has no sound from radio hookups put rca wires have sound


If the previous radio played all the speakers and the new one wont either:
1. You have not hooked the speakers up right.
2. All your speakers are blown.
3. There is a factory amp, you just don't know about it.
4. The radio has blown final outputs.
5. One or more speakers or speaker wires is seeing a ground (shorted out)

First check the radio, hook up a know good test speaker directly to the speaker outputs on the radio. If it works, then take a 9volt battery and try to pop the inside speakers with it. When you touch the + & - speaker wires to the battery + &- you should hear a pop at the speaker. If you do you don't have an amp. If you don't you might have an amp or the wire going to the speaker is dead or shorted out. It is unlikely that all four speakers would be bad or have bad wires. If none of them will pop you need to turn on the factory amp. Then they will play. If only one speaker wont pop then that is the bad speaker. If they all pop then you have a bad speaker or wire.
