Does an mp3 player put out enough power for input to KAC-624 amp?

Does an simple/small mp3 player put out enough sound/power to use as the input/supply to a KAC-624 amplifier?

Should i be able to use an mp3 player as input for a Kenwood KAC-624? I'm using a connector that hooks the mp3 player headphones to the red & white RCA jacks. Ive ensured I have 12 volts to the power in and a solid ground, connected the speakers, tested the fuse, adjusted the min-max input sensitivity from zero to max. But I still get no sound. So I tested the speakers with another audio source and no problems. I used a volt meter to make sure I had power to the 20 amp fuse case and tested to make sure the fuse is good. I've ensured the mp3 player is on and has good volume...

    I've connected the speaker wires from the radio to the RCA jacks (using a RCA red/white connector that I spliced open) does that work?

Have you connected the rca plugs to the radio or amp directly? If you've connected it to the radio make sure that the input level controls are adjusted AND available on that model (it will say AUX, INPUT, SUBWOOFER, REAR, etc.) Connecting your mp3 player directly to the amp will not have enough juice to hear sound you need to connect it to the radio first.

I need to know the wattege of a kenwood kac -624


The KAC-624 is a 40 watt x2 @ 4 ohm RMS amp. 55 watt x2 @ 2ohm. 110 watt x 1 Bridged I assume at 4 ohm. Manual does not specify. It can run 2 ohm in stereo mode but is unclear on mono impedance requirement. It can run 4 ohm mono at 110 watt but at 2 ohm?

I am trying to hook up an ancient Kenwood KAC-801 amplifier. The original input cable has 1 red, 1 black, then another smaller awg white (1) sharing a common with another small awg yellow. Applying power...


Yes, keep in mind that the amps have a constant power (the large red wire) and need a remote signal to tell them when to turn on/off. This wire connect to a switched 12v from the ignition or radio blue wire (if aftermarket)

My Kenwood KAC-929 gets power but DOES NOT put any sound out. Whats My Possible problem(s).


Hello Spicer_kyle6,

Possible problems: 1) No output from the head unit. Try a different set of preamp outs. 2) No input to the amp. Check the RCA's and make sure that they are good and coming from a functioning preamp or subwoofer output on the head unit. 3) Input gain turned off or down too low. 4) Speaker wiring shorted, grounded, or open. Check all wires. 5) Speakers defective. Connect to a known good output to test. 6) The amp itself could be defective and still show a power-on indication.

Hope this helps.

KAC-7202 will not put out sound. Put in other amp works.


When you switch on the amp did the main amp ic produce heat. If does not change the main amp ic.

I have a Kenwood KAC 6201 and I cannot get it to start!


Make sure you have voltage to both the main power input and remote. Without remote power the amp will not turn on. If you check with a light or meter and you positively have voltage to both power inputs and a good ground, and you still have no power, the amp is defective. I hope this helps...

Kenwood KAC-7202 wont turn on


I have found the problem to my Kenwood KAC-7202. The amps fan was the only thing that would come on thats it. So I started checkin zener diodes cause all transistors checked out fine. So I remember readinf about a guy that had same problem and took it to a shop and they said it was some diodes. Well, thats what I was thinkin or the transformer. It turned out that 1 zener diode was no good, diode D9 1ss133. I took a zener out of an old vcr I use for parts and put it in and the fan came on as usual then the red light. Then I hooked my mp3 player to the rca input and hooked up some speakers and it works great. Hope this helps you other guys with the same problem. Check your zener diodes with a digital volt meter, if you get any measurement other than the reverse impedance which will read between 600 and 1200 ohms some lower or higher and then reverse the leads on your meter and if you get any reading it's no good and the reading will be 0-50 cause mine read 047 ohms.

From the Input of amp, just connect cheap speaker with wires to input of amp.

If you have sound from speaker, most likely the amp is bad or loose connection.

Power of amplifier


If the KAC-7252 is to be bridged, the operation mode switch on the top of the amp is set to mono. When switched to Mono, the signal from the left channel input only is used. Bridging creates 4 times as much power so the KAC-7252 delivers 170 Watts per channel so that 340 watts total so that value 340 is multiplied by 4 and that gives you 1360 watts of power. so it will drive them.

Try to take out the lights that you put in yourself, but do it carefully, as you might have bridged out the power connectors that go through to your subs.
