If you have a DC power supply that is rated at 5 to 10 amps you will have no problem. You just connect it like you would in a car, but instead of a battery, you have a power supply for the red, yellow and black wires. The red and yellow go to the positive terminal and the black to negative. Then you connect the speakers to the speakers wires making sure that 1 speaker goes to the "white" and the "white with black stripe" wires, and that another speaker to the "grey" and the "grey with black stripe" wires, those are the front speaker outputs of a Kenwood. The Green set and the violet set are the rear speaker wires which you can just not use if you don't have 4 speakers. Just make sure that each wire is insulated from anything so they don't short out the radio. Now find an old car antenna with the wire and jack still attached and plug it into the antenna jack.

The only problem is when you turn off the power supply, you lose the preset stations and the clock settings.

I hope this helps you, and if so a good rating would be appreciated. It is the only reward we get for offering this free help.

Thanks,

Dave

Missing wire 4 from manual....whats the name of wire


just had the same problem-it does not come with the stereo or even the DTV1 box, it only comes with the NAV1 unit. Luckily I found a local stereo shop that sold me one out of ther NAV1 box since I only bought the DTV1 box with the stereo and I needed it. So hopefully you will have teh same luck , either that or you will have to buy it directly from Power Acoustik.

Im trying to find where i can gt a complete guide on how to install a car stereo from color coding the wires to installing a dash kit


  1. DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL ON YOUR BATTERY!
  2. For an old stock stereo, you may have to remove the dash or certain parts of it to access the stereo. Do that by locating screws and bolts and taking them off. Make sure to keep them in a safe place.
  3. For an aftermarket stereo, insert DIN tools into each slot on the stereo behind the faceplate. Slide the whole stereo out.
  4. Disconnect the antenna wiring (The wire with the big metal tip)and the stereo head unit wiring (wire harness).
  5. Reconnect the antenna into your new stereo.
  6. Use **** connectors and wire crimps to connect the stock wire harness with a car specific one that is sold seperately. The color of the wires on each harnass should match up.
  7. Reconnect the negative terminal on your battery and see if it works.
  8. Slide the stereo back into the dash and remount the dash that you removed, including screws and bolts.
hope this will help you

Stereo works on assessory switch but cuts off when start car


you will have to separate the red and yellow wires. they cannot run together. the red should be connected to the fuse box. there is a slot labeled batt on your fuse box under the dash. there is also an auxiliary wire in the stereo slot used by you factory set. use this for the yellow wire connection.

Problem no sound


If your KENWOOD unit is experiencing audio problems (NO Audio), but do have audio when TUNER is selected as the source, you may have problems with your installation.

NOTE: If using an external amplifier or the unit was installed using a separately purchased wiring harness for your specific vehicle, please check the following

If Using an External Amplifier

The P.CONT or REMOTE terminal on the external amplifier requires a “turn on” signal from the stereo. This terminal should be connected to the BLUE/WHITE P.CONT wire on the Kenwood harness and not the solid BLUE ANT.CONT wire.

If Using a Vehicle Specific Harness
The vehicle has a factory installed amplifier and requires a “turn on” signal from the stereo. Make sure that the BLUE/WHITE P.CONT wire is connected to the vehicle specific harness and NOT the sold BLUE ANT.CONT wire.

The solid BLUE ANT. CONT wire is used to trigger a power antenna ONLY when the tuner is selected as the source. Using this wire to “turn on” an external amplifier or factory installed amplifier will only allow it to work when TUNER is selected. Please refer to your instruction manual for proper installation. If you are not completely comfortable with installing the unit yourself, we recommend that you seek assistance from a professional installer.

No Sound - boat stereo


Assuming that the four speakers are connected to the amplifier, then the amp is the most likely problem component. Does the amplifier show a power light when the system is turned on? Note that there is probably another fuse in the amplifier power wire, near the battery.
