Question about Kenwood KTS-300MR CD Receiver

1 Answer

I wired additional speakers to my Kenwood car radio/cd player, that is in my boat. When I turned it on it played really loud and I could not turn it down. I turned it off and now it will not turn on. I have checked all the fuses and I can detect that there is power brought to the unit. Do you think that the radio some how is ruined?

When you connect multiple speakers to one channel it drops the impedance. A radio is designed to play at 4 ohms which would generally be one speaker. When you connect two speakers to one channel it drops to a 2 ohm load which can be fatal for a radio but not always

Check to see if you have a speakers A button and a speakers B button. Cycle them both on and off one at a time with something playing. This may turn the speakers back on. In addition you can check to see if you have a second room speakers feature that somehow got turned on- if so turn it off and the sound should come back. In addition you should download the manual and search for these features to show you have to deal with them.

it sounds like you are using the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white (amplifier remote turn on) wire to turn your amplifier on.

you need to firstly trace the speaker wires to the unit to make sure there connected first. if they are then its a job for a car audio expert ( if there is such a thing) if the unit is connected to correctly to the speakers then there is an internal fault ..

New speakers are fuzzy


If it is an older vehicle you could have interference from the ignition system. You can wire the radio to be powered up from a toggle switch that get its power straight from the battery, with a fuse between the battery and switch of course. This will eliminate powering up the radio with the ignition switch and take the ignition system out of it. Also need to make sure the ground wire is grounded good and the ground wire is the same wire guage if not larger than the power wire.

It is flashing the word protect on the screen


You have a shorted speaker wire or a blown speaker. The unit is protecting itself from damage. Did you install it? if so, pull the deck and check your connections. If they all seem fine, disconnect one speaker at a time, and turn on the radio. Make sure the radio speaker wires are taped so they don't short and cause more damage. Test each speaker wire until you find which one is causing the problem. Now re-connect all the other speakers and test. Next, disconnect the speaker wire right at the speaker that's giving you a problem, tape it off, then re connect it to the receiver. now test again. If all is ok, you have a bad speaker, if not run a test wire from the radio to the possible bad speaker and test again. If the speaker plays, you know what the problem is, replace the bad wire. Most often it's a door speaker wire or a wire got pinched during installation and took a while to short. Hope this helps

Plays radio not cds


You may have Power antenna and amp remote turn on wires switched. Your system may be looking for turn on signal from radio and only gets it when am or fm is on because power antenna wire is hooked up instead of amp turn on signal.

My Cd and iPod doesn't have sound


Alright I fixed it. My stock Jeep stereo had a speaker amp that was wired in with the power ANT, the kenwood would turn the power ANT off when using other medias. So I had to hook up the BLUE power ANT wire up to the RED IGN wire so that when the car was on both the ANT and AMP would be on when the car was on. There are other ways of hooking this up I could have hooked the ANT wire up to the AMP wire coming out of the Kenwood so that the AMP and ANT would've only been on when the radio was on, but I'm happy with the way this turned out.

Kenwood kdc-mp528 amp/speaker problem???


This is a common mistake. This problem indicates that you are using the solid blue wire from the head unit to the remote turn-on on the amp. This is a power antenna wire that only receives power when on FM radio. You need to replace this with the Blue & White wire from the head unit (power control wire) to your remote turn-on on your amp. This should solve your issue.
