You need to confirm that you have sufficient B+ and remote turn-on voltage.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

How to install kenwood 729s withno rca outlet on radio


You can run the speaker wires to the speaker level input on the amp or i believe you can run another set of speaker wires spliced into the existing wires in parallel to the speaker level input along with the speakers that are already hooked up if you are using the amp for a sub or other speakers that you have added to the existing system.

How to hook up speakers to an ipod dock


Just run an cable (3.5mm headphone jack into stereo rca cable) from your ipod's earphone jack to one of the available input channels on your amplifier. I put mine into the front auxiliary input on my amp and just simply selected that channel on the amp. Hope it helps. By the way, an RCA cable is the one with the white and red plugs. 2_21_2014_8_49_22_pm.png

Yes, they should be labeled for each speaker. Nice radio, please install the fuse (on the power cable under the hood) LAST as to not accidently damage anything.

A installed the kenwood dpx303 and the radio plays fine, but when I try to play a cd or use the aux input it shows that its playing but no audio will play through the speakers.


are you using an amplifier? if so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire (antenna remote) instead of the blue/white wire (amp remote turn on) to turn your amp on. the antenna remote turns off when leaving tuner mode.

Hi, I'm trying to install a sub and amp in my 2006 ram w/OE head unit. What wires do I have to tap into to get speaker output? Thanks, Chris


You'll need power from the battery to your amp (you may be able to find a spare one at the head unit), and, using suitably thick wire, connect those to the 12vDC input of the amp.

If the amplifier accepts speaker level inputs, you can connect the amplifier input to the head unit output (maybe use the rear speaker output). At the other end of the amp, connect your subwoofer. If there's only one, use the amp bridged (more power). If you're using two, and your amp has 2 channels, use one channel per subwoofer. When you power all this up, turn the volume up from 0 slowly - if anything sounds wrong, turn it back down and switch it all off. Check all your wires and start again.

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


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.

Hi, I just purchased a used set of 901s with the original active equalizer. they are both series VI and were bought together. Unfortunately, the man misplaced the installation instructions for the...


If no Amp is used, connect jacks ( Left, Right) from your receiver output to Bose equalizer Input ( L, R) where it says Amplifier. Then also under where it says Amplifier, connect jacks from Output to your speakers. This would require the type of speaker wires that are RCA (plug in, red and white) on one end bare wire on the other to the speakers.
I don't know what the output is on your Kenwood, but if it's low watts, an amp is much better to crank those Bose. It's a different connect with an amp. Go L &R from the receiver to Equalizer as before, then from equalizer to amp Input where it says Tuner. then hook bare speaker wires to back of amp to Bose speakers.
You should have full use of Bose controls. The Monitor button is for an extra component that can be hooked up on the back, right side of equalizer.

Connection compatibility


Connect the supplied short RCA "Y" adapter cable to the mini jack of the transmitter base unit. Connect the "Y" adapter plugs to the TAPE 2 "REC" L and R jacks. These jacks will supply "line out" levels of any source selected at the Kenwood to the EWOS1 internal amplifier. The line out levels are "fixed" so changing the volume levels of the Kenwood will NOT change the volume out of the EWOS1 speakers. The EWOS1 volume will be controlled by the volume up / down buttons on the front of each speaker, or by the incuded remote when directed at the speaker(s).

The signals from the TAPE 2 jacks are ALWAYS on regardless of the source selected, so the Kenwood volume can be turned to minium and still provide an unchanged sound level from the EWOS1 speakers. Likewise, if listening to FM, Phono, CD, etc. in the room that the Kenwood's speakers are located, the OWS1 speakers will by playing the same FM, Phono, CD, etc program - unless they have been powered off. The point is, that unlike having to choose FM, CD, etc to listen to those soreces, you should never select TAPE 2 as a source. If TAPE 2 is selected, the KENWOOD would attempt to amplify TAPE 2's "PLAY" jacks, which I assume are not being used.

How to install kenwood kac-9102d in 2006 acura rsx


My recommendation is to get a line level converter. Go to a car audio shop or even best buy and specifically ask for a line level converter. It will have speaker wires in and RCAs out. Connect the speaker wires to the sub woofer speaker wires and then you will have the RCAs to run to your amp. I hope this helped.

My back speakers wont produce any sound


OK I believe there is a small indented "Reset Button" around somewhere on the back of the unit, With the unit powered ON, & using a small diameter implement, straightened paper clip etc, press IN the button and this should "Reset" ya unit. This may indeed fix all your problems as the Unit "Reads" the speakers at turn on.
