    I'm going to assume you meant RCA inputs, so u can get a sig to the amp. Well i have 2 of these amps and ripped em apart to find how to wire them up.

    i know this is a real old thread but i know there is going to be others wanting to use these old good powerful amps. So here we go...

    First off u need to cut off the din plug.
    There are lots of other wires inside that big black wire.

    The first braided copper wire on the outside is a ground that goes to the chassis of the amp inside. I don't use it. Use the black ground wire coming out the amp.

    Now look for a red wire. This is your ACC power. This is power that comes on when you turn your key forward.

    There is a brown wire. When the amp is on this wire puts out 0.35 volts. I'm not sher what this wire is. i don't use it. My KAC-801 s work great with out them hooked up, so tape that wire up so it doesn't short out.

    There is a big white wire inside that has 3 wires inside of it.

    There is a bare wire inside that white wire, this is a common sound signal ground. Use this on the outside of the RCA plugs for both rite and left rca common sound sig ground.

    The white wire inside the white wire is the left positive sound signal. U can run this to the center of an RCA connector as your positive RCA sound sig.

    Then there is a yellow wire inside the white wire is the right positive sound signal. U can run this to the center of an RCA connector as your positive RCA sound sig.

    These are your right and left sound inputs done now.

    Now for your power. Big red is your main power. have this powered all the time, Use a fused line.

    Big black is your ground. ground to your chassis.

    then your 2 speaker wires. these are +red, gray and -gray for right, and +blue and -gray for right.

    Enjoy!

    Just figured it out this weekend.

Hi there. I have an old KAC-9020 amp, but it is in very good condition and I wouldn't like to see it go to waste. However, the input for the amp is an 8 pin DIN cable. I could custom wire an adapter if I...


Julian,

I found the owner's manual on the Kenwood website. Please visit the link below:
http://www.kenwoodusa.com/UserFiles/File/Global/Consumer/Manuals/kac9020.pdf

You'll notice that the plug in the diagram is plugged to receiver/tuner/car stereo. Apparently it's a common plug/setup for the Kenwood stereos that have this type of output plug. You would just need to find any Kenwood car stereo that has this output to get the wiring of the plug if you wish to use this amp with a different car stereo. (Or just get a Kenwood car stereo that has this type of output). Good Luck.

I recently purchased a new Kenwood KAC-9104D 1800 amplifier. I hooked it up just as I had with a previous amplifier but it wont power the subwoofers. When one of the RCA cables is plugged in and the other...


You should check and verify first the output signal in the amplifiers by using a multimeter on the db range, this is to identify good output of the amp. After that check the polarities for correct wire orientations.You should connect the speakers one at a time to check.

How many watts is it


http://www.kenwoodusa.com/UserFiles/File/Global/Consumer/Manuals/kac528.pdf

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.

My Kenwood KAC-929 gets power but DOES NOT put any sound out. Whats My Possible problem(s).


Hello Spicer_kyle6,

Possible problems: 1) No output from the head unit. Try a different set of preamp outs. 2) No input to the amp. Check the RCA's and make sure that they are good and coming from a functioning preamp or subwoofer output on the head unit. 3) Input gain turned off or down too low. 4) Speaker wiring shorted, grounded, or open. Check all wires. 5) Speakers defective. Connect to a known good output to test. 6) The amp itself could be defective and still show a power-on indication.

Hope this helps.

Only one side works and know it all worked when i took it out


Car amps are generally fairly simple to wire you need;

Battery Positive (large wire)
Ground (large wire)
Remote signal (small wire)
RCA In and/or Hi-level in

Then you generally have a set of screws or clips that are your speaker outputs.

To see if the problem is on the input or output side, simply switch your RCA cables and see if the audio starts coming out the other speaker.

If it does then you have an input problem and you should check to see if your RCA's are still plugged in to the head unit at the dash.

If the sound still just comes out the same side then you have an output problem and should check your speaker connections, verify that you subs are still good by switching the output wires on the amplifier, and check the wiring inside the speaker box.

How much volts or ohms should be coming out of rca cables to my amp?


ohms does not make a difference for the rca cables, and the volts at the stereos max power will be whatever that brand and model is rated for the output cables, usually 2.5, 5, 7.5, or 9. your average output is for 2.5 volts on an affordable aftermarket radio

Install my Kenwood KAC-9102D in my 2006 Acura RSX Type S


You will probably need to use a Line Output Converter (LOC). They're available at virtually any shop that sells car audio.

Many times, the outputs of the OEM amplifier will have significant DC voltage on them. This could damage the input circuits on the kenwood amplifier.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
