The wireing off the brain is connected wrong, ok look at the wires and now disconnect your remote wire from the amp remote now connect the second blue wire to the remote wire going to the amp, now your sound should be right

ok you have two possible problems one is the remote wire comeing from the brain is hooked up wrong use the second remote wire to the remote hook up for your amp the one you have hooked up is for the power antena if you had one thats why it works when you have the radio on.
ok now the second problem is with your zone cotrole sound like to be on try playing with your audio controls.
or at the very bottom of the screen is about 3or 4 buttons use those to change through the other options while the screen is up .

I have the kvt 617 I have great audio when listening to radio nut anythig else I only have subs it started doing it when i first got it and then it quit and know it is doing it again any idea?


High end kenwoods have a setting, where you can turn off the internal amp in the head unit, if the sub is the only thing that has an external amp hooked to it, and it is playing, that may be your problem. Also, if one of the speakers hooked directly to the Kenwood has a short, bad voice coil, or contacts touching metal, that can cause the amp in the Kenwood to go into protect, and you will loose sound to all the speakers.

Hideaway brain unit on my kenwood KVT-617 doesn't work


My KVT-617 display unit was stolen out of my dash, but they neglected to snag the items under the rear seat: the "brain" hideaway unit, the HD radio receiver, the 10 disc CD changer, the navigation unit, and the powered subwoofer.
Everything was replaced via the insurance except the sub because the new system was not compatible with the old components. Make me an offer on the items you want!

Can listen to tuner but not mp3 or cd/ dvd


Make sure you are not using the power antenna lead to trigger the amp for your mid/highs, I just had this issue with the oem amp in my truck. When I chose any other source other than radio everything would die except bass. I used the ant lead for the amp for my door speakers and the amp trigger for my sub amp.

KVT 617 CD/DVD "reads" but only audio from tuner


Ok, so I called Crutchfield, where I had purchased the unit, and the guy there said this is a common thing. Believe it or not, it IS the wiring. The guy said the blue wire on the harness needs to be connected to the blue/white wire on the Kenwood unit. Which is weird, since it's usually color-coded. He said the blue wire is a 12-volt amp wire, which works with the tuner, but when you take it off tuner, it kills the 12 volts and so you get no sound.

I haven't fixed it yet to be sure it works, but I thought I'd post this anyway, in case someone else is waiting on this. I'll post again if it doesn't work. :0)
