My subwoofer won't play while watching a movie or playing iPod only while on the radio. Why?


it sounds like the "remote wire" on the amp is coming from the "power antenna" output of the radio instead of the "remote turn-on" wire or in the case of kenwood, the "power cont." wire. Sounds like that's whats happening.... switch the wires on the kvt-512, should be a blue wire and a blue/white wire. hope that helps, dave

I plug my ipod to the stereo but my stereo screen still says discconected


you have to go to the kenwood site and download the firmware update go to this page http://www.kenwood.com/cs/ce/mm/firmware/2008/eng.html

after you download the file unzip it and burn it with either nero or roxio, as a data file insert the cd on your kvt-512, if it reads DISK ERROR, press the reset button on the front of the stereo, once the screen comes back up select the DVD function, the system update should start from there. let it finish once it does then you'll be able to plug in your ipod. oh and ofcourse for this you should know that you need the ipod adapter, depending on what you want to do with it for instance i have the KCA-iP300V which allows me to view videos from my ipod as well.

Just ignore the airplane mode prompt and if your wiring is correct everything should work.
With my BMW I had to connect both the solid blue (pwr ant) wire and the blue with white stripe (p conn) to the solid blue wire from the factory harness.

It isn't obvious that either of these are needed as the KVT-512 has it's own power supply but the way most factory power amps are installed the power from the KVT-512 is not used and the car manufacturers power amp needs to be turned on.

If you are listening to the radio the pwr ant wire will turn on the power amp, this didn't seem obvious because the BMW doesn't have a power antenna. And when you are using the DVD player or the iPod connection you need the P Conn wire to turn on the car power amp as the ant pwr is disabled because you are no longer using the radio and Kenwood assumes you will not need the antenna so no power to this lead.

Solder all three wires together and you should have sound all the time.

Just purchased a brand new Kenwood KVT512 and the ip300v interface cable. i can play music from my i pod but i dont have any interface, it basically just acts as an audio input rather then linking to the...


Did you buy the adapter for the ipod and are not just hooking it up directly through usb. It sounds like their may not be the correct adapter attached. The adapter comes with plug for the ipod on one end, and a usb, audio, and video plug on the other end. Without that you will not see anything on the screen due to not having the correct cable to display the video portion.
