Sounds like an overheating issue. Most car receivers have heat sinks at the rear to dissipate heat, but if there is little or no rear clearance for the unit the heat may build up and the unit goes into a self protection mode and shuts down.
You are working your deck to hard, it is overheating and shutting down (protection mode) You like it loud, you will need a 4 channel amp. Also check the ground on your deck to ensure it has a nice connection.
mine does this too, I have the deck on my boat and on land the deck cuts out when a bass line hits or loud music comes in, cuts out at about 20 on the volume level, however, when on the water and the motor is running, my voltage is up to 14 vdc or so.. At this point, I can crank the deck up to 30-37, and it will scream , doesnt cut out or lose power just rocks. I have heard that kenwood decks are competition stereos and require 14-16vdc, but I have never found any proof of this. One thing you can do is order a battery from summitracing.com that runs higher than 12vdc. But then again im just speculating
Under the silver volume knob is a thin silver bar. Push it and the menu will pop up on the screen. Continue to push this bar to scroll through the different options. It controls bass, treble, balance, fade, sub volume etc. Good luck, hope this helped.
There is no straigt forward bass and treble adjustment. You must adjust in either the (x-over) or (users EQ) function. It is a bit tedious but performs the bass and treble adjustments at multiple frequencies.
this is very easy...just unplug the rca cables out of the back of the deck, and plug them into the "subwoofer" output. On some alpine decks this is on a "pigtail" wire that extends from the deck. Once this is connected to the right output, you can control the subwoofer level from the volume knob by pressing it inwards.
Also.... your amplifier should have a low pass filter, it should be on a switch marked "LPF". Make sure this is switched on.
check your ground, it could be that your antenna is the only source of ground, in which case the deck does not have enough power to stay on when it draws too much power. I've seen exactly what you are saying many many times. Ground it really reallly good.
