Audio can usually go either way to a TV. In or Out. Why someone would want to hear external audio through a TV's marginal audio electronics and speaker(s) is beyond me, but sometimes that is what they want.

Take the audio from the receiver via whatever unused Tape or Video function connectors you like to the TV's Audio L & R IN. Anything the receiver processes will be audible through the TV as long as you DON'T select that function for listening on the receiver.

Listening to TV-related audio through the receiver and its (presumably better) speakers makes much more sense, but again, the TV's marginally audio capabilites place a serious limitation on sound quality expectations. In your case, stereo is as good as it could be.

If your TV has Audio Out jacks, just run them to any convenient Line Level input (NOT Phono). If your TV has internal audio controls for volume, set it to Fixed so the TV's volume control doesn't affect the sound going out to the Kenwood.

A better TV-related audio solution would be to connect the BEST audio of whatever source you're watching directly from that source to the receiver. Cable, DVD/BD, SAT always have 2-channel analog RCA connectors as well as (unusable on the Kenwood) digital audio outputs.

VIDEO from the Kenwood to the TV:

You describe your TV having Composite (3 -RCA-style cables). The Kenwood is limited to Composite (Lower-quality, single Video RCA-style cable). Check your TV for a single Video In connection and run THAT from the Kenwood's Monitor Out so you can pass other video through the receiver.

In its day this receiver was pretty high-end but to really enjoy modern multichannel audio from video sources you might consider an upgrade to a true multichannel Audio Video Receiver. For one thing it would support digital audio and probably Component and HDMI video. You could still use the Kenwood's amplifiers to drive speakers or as a secondary system.

Are you trying to play music off your computer through a stereo or receiver??? If so you will need a cord with red & white (rcas's) on one end & an 1/8" jack on the other...Run it out your headphone jack of the pc (usually color coded light green) and turn input of stereo to corresponding input you plug into..

What can be connected to te audio output jacks on the back of this set?


You didn't include make and model TV; so only generalized answers are possible.

Typical RCA phono jacks like those shown in the blue box of the stereo amplifier below:

25998201-ac5bgneb45fvu53muoueauti-3-0.jpg will accept cables to connect to other audio devices. The audio RCA jacks are color coded RED (right) and WHITE (left) for low level stereo signals. Some have YELLOW jacks for Standard Definition video, ORANGE jacks for AC3 Digital audio and newer amps have HDMI jacks.

Connect the TV's audio OUTPUT jacks and a stereo pair of unused audio INPUT jacks on the amplifier with cables that have ends that match each. Turn on the stereo & TV and select the input on the amplifier that matches the stereo pair of inputs you used to connect to the TV. Adjust the volume to hear the audio over your stereo system's speakers.

Use the HDMI or AC3 sources for superior audio - including 5.1 (or better) Dobly Digital when possible. Otherwise, a standard 2 channel stereo program will be heard.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Why is there no sound coming out of my goodmans 50w sound bar?


No. Red and white are left and right stereo sound. Yellow is for video. Do you have power to the sound bar? Are those red and white cables connected to audio OUTPUT on the TV? If they are connected to the audio INPUT to the TV, it won't work. You may need to connect the cable to a 'phones' jack on the TV. Can you connect the sound bar to another source (like an iPod or CD player)? That will test the sound bar itself.

Hi, My friend (who has a visual impairment) moved house recently, they own a Kenwood KR - V5570, I assisted with re setting up PC etc. I am now baffled with connecting her left and right speakers to this...


If you keep guessing you may succeed in blowing something up.

The cables have RCA connectors or bare wires for a reason.

Get the manual out and read it.

Don't pay too much attention to the actual colors of speaker wire. Use the colors as reference. Each speaker has a plus and a minus. Connect them to corresponding plus and minus for their respective amplifier outputs.

Where on the Kenwood KR-V5580 do I connect a sub woofer


Wherever the unidentified subwoofer's manual recommends. As there are no volume-controlled pre-amp outputs it would have to be a model that accepts full-range speaker level input if you want to control its volume locally.

Dear sir,my surround amp rear speakers are not working.model is kr-v5580.other functions are OK..Pl's help


1st try a test tone to the rear speakers. If you can not get a test tone check the connections again.. once you get a test tone, use the "mode" button on your remote to cycle through the surround modes and make sure you are in a surround mode rather than a stereo mode.
