Hi,

A six (6) ampere capable power converter should do just fine for most current in-dash receivers. This would hold true only if the car stereo is not one of those that pushes high wattage in its audio output.

If I may add, converters have been known to introduce 60cycle hum into the audio, perhaps you might be better off with a regulated power supply.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I cannot get the auxiliary to work on my kenwood kdc- mp235, what do I press to make it work


Most head units come w/ connections for both auxiliary units (for an amp, etc) and the line for the power antenna. in the past when my deck would stop sending a signal via the auxiliary, I would simple use the power antenna. It pretty much just lets the amp or whatever know when to turn on. Separately however, most newer decks have a way to turn off the auxiliary via the menu settings. I might start w/ that if your kenwood happened to be a newer deck.

My Dual amp wont put out power when deck is in aux or ipod modes.


my pioneer deck does the same thing its just that when in aux mode, it will not play loud enough, i have to turn it up all the way just to hear a little sound, and i really dont know y, but when in those mods, it usually doesnt put out sound on ur subwoofer or amp rca wired on back of ur deck, and usually they do, but the power is not large enough for ur amp to pick the frequency up from ur rca wire connections. that also has happened to me before, i just usually ignore it, and just burn an mp3 cd w like hundred songs, so i dont need a ipod or mp3 player for aux.

hope i was help :)

CDX-SW200 plays the stereo but not the CD's


sounds like you connected the amp turn on lead to the power antenna wire coming from the deck, so the amp turns on when you have the radio on, but turns off when playing cds. you need to connect the amp turn on lead to the amp remote wire.

Amp cd proble3m


i'm not entirely sure but i think that your only supposed to have the blue remote wire hooked up. but like i said i'm not sure. i hooked my amp up and somehow my remote wire shorted and fried my ignition switch so don't hold me to it, but maybe look into it. I think that you might have a constand power hooked up to a switched power cable for your amp so haveing the constant power to your amp, asied from your 12v at the battery, your amp might not even know when your car is on or off. hope this helps sorry for the open ender

Wiring


tblackwood ...if you have connected your remote turn on for your amp to the remote turn on on the deck(this is also the power aerial connection) ..on some decks this has power only when the radio is operating. as soon as you insert cd it shuts down the power to this supply(i dont know why some did this.it was a bad move ) ..you may have to find another power supply to turn the amp on (accessories supply on the ignition..)

Ilo ca 3000v cd player


The RCA connections on the back of the Ilo CA3000V are exclusively for XM radio input, and do not send a 'low level' signal required for your amplifier to operate. You will need to have a 'high level' input on your amplifier to get a signal from the Ilo, this will be driven off the speaker wires themselves.

Eclipse 5340 deck


I forget about the security light but I do know about the clock. I believe you turn the deck off and hold display or push display and the clock will come up. Then use the preset buttons for adjustment. I think 1/2 is for the hour and 3/4 are for the minute. It has been a while for me doing this but I think it is right. I just powered mine back up a while back and am trying to find my starting cd. You wouldn't happen to know how to reset this function and start over?

How to instal my deck to a amp and sub


you would need rca cables, power wire, ground wire, and remote wire. it is easiest to just go to your local best buy or circuit city stores and buy the whole set in one package. rca's lead from your decks rca output jacks to your amp, remote wire leads from your decks wiring (blue remote wire that leads to your deck itself to give it remote) or any 12 volt source like where your fuses are located and it runs to the amp also, your power wire will lead from your battery to your amp, and your ground will need a good place somewhere in your car and be bolted or screwed to the frame of your car. this is how to intall your deck to your amp. i assume that you already know that wires will have to be under your carpet or kickboards and such however you run them. i think this covers the basics and i hope i have answered your question right, good luck
