Problem with Kenwood stereo

Hi, I have a Kenwood stereo and the Power Amplifier/Graphic Equalizer does not power on. I think the model is B-B5. This is what it says on it. The power keeps going on and off. The system was working perfectly then a couple of days ago it started cutting out in mid-play. Now it does not seem to start. It makes a noice as if it is trying to switch on but does not. Can you advise on how or who can fix such 'vintyage, equipment. I am not an expert and have no clue about these things. Regards Chris

Re: Problem with Kenwood stereo

If the unit is old, I would start a he beginning and check the wiring connections. A lot of people use electrical tape without solder and it always works itself apart. Pay very close attention to the ground wire because it could be a common ground type system, meaning the battery ground is used for the speakers as well as the power for the eq.

How many watts is it

Page 7 of the manual gives you all the different configurations of this amp, and it's MAX power. FYI; Kenwood rates their amps at MAX power, not clean. Hope this helps.

Don't know how to install equalizer. Where does

hi input wiring hooks up to speaker wire outputs on the stereo. in 2008 chrysler has no ignition or accessory outputs. everything is digital, if you use a trunkloc from PAC electronics you will be able to hookup your outputs from the deck into this unit and it will provide you with the RCA, and remote power output needed for your system to operate. the factory deck should have battery and ground at the plug but no acc.

I got a 4 gauge power wire w a 20 amp fuse hooked up to a kenwood stereo/bridgeable amp 350 watts max power model #kac~6295 it just dnt sound rite any sugestions?

make sure you run your power and ground wires opposite of the rca/speaker wires. you tend to pick up alternator noise when all wires are bunched up together. Also, make sure you have a good chasis ground to the amp, and the stereo has also a good ground. good luck
