How to turn on Kenwood KM-Z1 amp with SL16 input

I have a KM-Z1 6 channel amp that I have connected to a Marantz AV9000. The amp used to turn itself on when it was hooked up to the Kenwood KC-Z1 and the SL16 cable was connected between the two. Now that it is hooked up to the AV9000, which does not have a SL16 jack, the amp must be turned on manually. The amp has a power button but will not turn itself on unless you push the additional center panel button. Is there a way to use the SL16 jack with the AV9000? What type of signal does the SL16 output?

    I wish I knew. It is some sort of communication jack between Kenwood gear. You can plug amps, cd, tape decks into this jack and it turns on the other equipment. The amp has one marked SL16 and another marked XS8. I do not know what type of signal is used.

Have you plugged the amp into the AV9000. Check if the outlet you are using is switched or unswitched. Changing the outlet will most likely do the trick.

How do I connect a Marantz av8801 to a Marantz sr7009

The 8801 is an 11.2 channel AV preamp/processor. The SR7009 is a 9.2 channel receiver that includes both preamp and amplifiers.

The 8801 handles an amazing 11 channels of audio, but you can only use the SR7009 for 7.1 input channels. (Does anyone really need 11?) Unless you have some extremely demanding audio requirements, you would probably just want to use the SR7009 by itself. You can't fully utilized the 8801 as a front end (pre/pro) so I'm not aware of any benefits to connecting the two of these together.

Marantz NR1402 AV receiver Going to standby Mode

There could be a short in one (or more) of the speaker connections. Try disconnecting all speakers and turning on the receiver. If it still switches to standby, there may be an internal problem.

How do I connect Marantz AV7005 to Marantz SR9600

Remove the little black jumpers on the 9600 that link the pre amp section to the main amplifier inputs. They are the top row of rca inputs on the back. Using single rca cables from the pre out of the 7005 into the main amplifier of the 9600 connect all the channels you have wired speakers for, L,R,C, SL,SR, etc up to 7. Connect all your sources to the 7005 with whatever cables you have it doesn't matter. Turn off the 9600 volume and use only the 7005 to control the volume. It works perfectly giving an awesome amp a new lease on life. Good luck!

Hi There, I have a Marantz SR7005 Receiver and Bose 901 Series VI speakers with the Bose equalizer. I'm struggling to figure out the best way to connect the Bose equalizer/speakers to the SR7005. ...

It sounds like you've read one of my many posts on 901 deployment in the AV world.

Functionally, what is the difference between one amp with 'x' channels or 'x' mono amps? Nothing. Pre-outs don't know or care what else an external amp does.

According to this link those amps are 2- and 5-channel, respectively.

There was a time when I had two bridged-mono Carver Cube atmps (at a real 400 watts) pushing one 901 each but that was big time overkill.

I now use a Carver AV-406 (functionally the same as your MM7055) with the 901 EQ in between the AV Receiver's front pre-outs and two 110-watt channels. Other channels on the AV-406 pull subwoofer and surround back duties. My AVR directly powers only the center and surround speakers.

The MM7025 would work for you.

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.

I have 1 center channel pre-out on back of my kenwood receiver. how do i hook it to the inputs on onkyo m-282 amp and then to center channel speaker?

Unfortunately can't connect it that way. The pre out is only meant to go directly into an amplifier that has all of the same inputs (front/rear, center and surround), not a standard receiver. (Pre amp to amp only, not pre amp to receiver) If your Onkyo doesn't have all the same inputs as your Kenwood preamp has outputs you will just use your standard left/right outputs from the Kenwood to your Onkyo input (CD, Tape, Phono,DVD etc) then use the outputs (front/rear, center and surround) from your Onkyo receiver and connect directly to your speakers..

Am trying to hook up an older kenwood home stereo system and dont know where all of the wires go. There is a model #kt-87synthesizer, km-207 amplifier, double cassette kx-77cw, stereo control amp kc-207...

Okay you are going to need 5 sets of RCA cables of 3 foot lengths. Ensure the KM-207 is adequately ventilated unless you want to burn up the KM-207. Next you will want to place the KC-207 near the KM-207 and connect the "Output to Amp" from the KC-207 to the "Input" to the KM-207. Now you may stack the KX-77CW, the DP-M97 and the KT-87 Tuner in no particular order. I tend to place them sideways so I may access them just in case I don't like how it is set up. Unless I can access them from the back. "Output" or "Play" from the DP-M207 goes into the "CD Input" in the back of the KC-207. "Output" or "Record" on the KC-207 "Tape 1" goes into the "Input or "Record" on the KX-77CW. "Output"or "Play" on the KX-77CW goes into the "Input" or "Play" on the "Tape 1" of the KC-207. "Output" on the KT-87 Tuner goes into the "Tuner Input" on the KC-207. Here is a trick to help you new stuff uses color codes such as White or Blue RCA cable ends, and Red RCA cable ends to indicate White or Blue for Left channel and Red for Right channel. Now you didn't indicate how to hookup speakers so I will not assume you are concerned about anything but using headphones for listening. I hope this has been of assistance.

Adcom 7500, Adcom 5400(bi-amp), Marantz AV-9000, Dakiom HA103

Try just the power amp on ..nothing connected
no Dakiom thingy either. It's a matter of elimination. Start at the output device and work back. Keep the Dakiom out of the loop.
If there's hum with just the Adcom..then it's the ADCOM

Vintage Stereo Connection ???

Hi spanky

Where to start :) I am excited thinking about them :p You got 2 totally cool pieces of classic vintage gear there in the C2 and the Marantz. I have a C2 preamp myself (gathering dust but wont sell it cos its excellent) and the marantz would be totally cool to have(but then I am a little biased towards 70's vintage marantz). They ruled the roost in HiFi amps throughout that decade.

Because they are both integrated amps, you could use them as standalone systems with a pair of speakers, and just plug your favourite gear into them. If you just wanted to run up a nice sounding HiFi, I would sell the kenwood gear and just keep the Marantz. The Kenwood kr1100 has the edge in power, so if it is grunt you are looking for use that. Because vintage sound is all about stereo, you only really need an integrated amp to get great results.

the specs are
# Kenwood Model Eleven G (KR-11000G) Receiver
120W per channel min RMS, both channels driven, at 8 ohms from 20 to 20.000 Hz with no more than 0.03% total harmonic distortion.
Dynamic power output 440W at 4 ohms
Power bandwidth 5 Hz to 70.000 HZ
Frequency response 5 Hz to 100.000 HZ -1.5dB
Signal to noise ratio 115dB

The marantz is a little lower in power at 75rms a channel, but will have the sonic edge in vintage sound over the kr1100. Look them up on ebay and you will find that they do have some value to collectors and people seeking nice tone. There is an 1152 for sale here for AU$900

Best bet is to fire up the 2 integrated amps,and see how they are going. Run them for several hours to be sure there is no strange noises and crackles. Then decide if you want power or finesse.

You could also run both amps from the C2 preamp by connecting to the Amp in connections to the rear of the integrated amps.

happy to talk to you more about it, hit me with a Fixya if my advice was helpful to you. I would keep the marantz, use that and sell the rest and buy some nice speakers:)
