Question about Kenwood KVT-512 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

When I hooked my subs up to my KVT-512, the subs only turn on when the Radio is on, but whenever I put in a CD or plug my iPod in, the subs do not work. Can anyone explain why this is happening? Thanks!

Ive got a kenwood kvt-512 n im tryin to hook an amp n subs up but dnt know where to plug my RCA jacks from the amp 2 the radio!


Your unit should have 2 plugs in the back...one for the audio and power wires to connect to your factory connections and the other plug is just RCA connections for your video, subs and front speakers. If you have a 4 channel amp and a amp for your subs, you will have to split the 4 channel amp down to 2 and run them to your front RCA connections. Subs will connect to the sub connections. If yours are not listed then you may have to track down a wiring diagram. Hope this helps.

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.

This happened to me. What worked was turning off the ipod (not stand by mode). Turn it back on and plug it in, it should work.

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.
