If i am right, you might have connect the Rca cable to the output Av port on the unit. Please recheck it, there're two Av Input and one Av Output, you have to connect the Av Jack to the Input port not on the Output, refer to the picture below for color coding : i just connected my ipod - 95f71e8.jpg

In most unit, Input and Output is written on the beside the respective ports. Please let me know this helps or not. Note: Don't forget to turn up the volume on both the devices (kenwood as well as ipod). Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

How do I connect my iPod to a stereo Kenwood


<p>The superior audio quality thanks to the Kenwood stereo system is as good as any on the market. However, many of Kenwood audio receivers contain no iPod connection port. Even the business hubs of high-end entertainment that interface with the computer via USB cannot provide connectivity to an iPod. But that does not mean you cannot high-quality audio through your stereo Kenwood iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Put your Kenwood stereo. Connect devices with the stereo turned on may lead to spikes in volume that can damage the speakers and even your ears. Turn up the stereo, so you can use the set of connectors on the back to see. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the end of 3.5 mm 3.5 mm to RCA cable for the headset from your iPod. If you do not have a cable 3.5mm to RCA, you can buy one of the sound equipment stores or electronics stores like Radio Shack. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the RCA end to your cable 3.5mm to RCA in an available port on the back of your Kenwood stereo. Put your Kenwood stereo, so you can access the buttons on the front. Turn the sound and select the channel of your iPod is connected. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Test the connection. Lower the volume on the Kenwood stereo and start a track playing on your iPod that you can recognize. Turn your volume until you play the iPod through the stereo to listen. If you hear no sound, check the "Monitor CD2/TAPE2" is active, and "Mute" is off <br />

Play Ipod thru JVC CD car stereo using RCA cable?


JVC KD-S731R does not have the option of connecting an ipod. The RCA ports on the rear of the unit are a Line-Out. These RCA's only OUTPUT sound. Not an INPUT RCA that you require. The only other method of using an ipod with this stereo is to purchase an FM-Modulator to connect the ipod. Once purchased, you must connect the antenna wire coming from the vehicle to the module, then you must connect the antenna wire coming from the module to the stereo. The other wire will be connected to either a jack or a ipod specific plug depending on the type of modulator used.

Connecting a car stereo to an amplifier


you have to connect your 4 speakers to 4 speakers output direct to your car stereo no need of amplifier to 4 speaker but speakers should be small not like a woofer, and you have to connect your sub woofer by using amplifier don't connect direct. connect the output of your car stereo (using 2 RCA) to the 2 RCA inputs of amplifier. If u connect your 4 speakers to your amplifier then your car stereo does not support Left Right channel.
You can also connect your laptop or iPod direct to your amplifier.
Good Luck
enjoy music

How do i connect a kenwood amp to my 2003 bmw m3 with a stock hk system and head unit? i just need to kno where to connect the amp to the car radio


You will need to connect your speaker outputs from the head unit to the high power inputs on the amplifier. If the amp only has low power inputs(rca jacks) then you will need to get a device that lowers the output signal from the radio so the amp can be connected. The red wire will go to the switched power. The yellow will go to constant power. Black goes to ground. Now the blue wire is the signal the amp gets from the stereo to turn on. Your stock stereo will probably not have this ability so you will have to hook that wire to the switched power. Your amp will come on whenever the key is on...even if the stereo is off. If your stock stereo has a wire that sends out a power signal when it is turned on you could try that for the blue wire. Just make sure you have the negative battery cable on the car disconnected so you don't short out your vehicle's electrical system while installing the amp.

A freen install kenwood ddx7017 and we hear dvds but no vision if there any extra part we need or were connected the wire whit the p


the only thing i can think of is the same prob I had with mine before I knew how to use it. there is a button on the left side of the screen with an "F" on it. That button switches between video modes. Try that if that doesn't work, check to see that both wiring harnesses are connected to a ground (actually 3 wires). 2 black, 1 green on the 8 pin harness (goes to parking brake switch); doesnt actually have to go there (that is for safety) Other than that you are on your own.

Wiring instructions for kenwood kdc-mp8533


dark blue is the remote for the amp
light blue is the remote for a power ant. (or amp)
orange is for the light dimmer (when you turn your lights on it will not be so bright, optional)
black is ground
brown is if you have a button in your car for a cell phone it will mute it when pushed (optional)
red is power (acc power)
yellow is always on power(for the clock and presets)
the rca jacks are for the amp they should be used if using an amp (there wattages are preset for amps anyway)

hook up the rca's to your amps along with the dark or light blue wires and when you turn the stereo on the amp will come on everything else should be hooked up as stated above. Hope this helps.
