Set the gain on the amplifier at a level so that when you have it at full volume you do not get any distortion at all. Any time you get distortion, you are in clipping. Clipping can cause damage to the amp and speakers if played for more than a short period.

Let me know if this helps or you require any additional help.

I have 3 Kenwood 12'inch subwoofers need to know how to wire them up to a Kenwood KAC-9105D


Follow the link and use the first diagram which illustrates wiring the subs to 2.66 ohms http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp~Q~3~I~42

Remember that that amp is one ohm stable so you will not be getting the most out of that amp with that subs set up. The subs will only see 650 to 850 watts total...so each sub will only see about 215 - 275 watts a piece. Find out what the RMS wattage of your subs are each an determine if the wattage I mentioned above meets those requirements.

I installed a Pioneer DEH-P800PRS head unit and 4 Kenwood KFC-1662S speakers in my 2003 Dodge Dakota extended cab truck. I used a Kenwood KAC-5204 2 channel amp connected in parallel. Sounds good at lower...


Hello.... sorry to hear about your problem. Bass is the ultimate evil of coaxial speakers. You have a couple of options here, and this is just my professional opinion because I do not know what your lifestyle details, such as truck space needs, type of music you listen to, budget, etc. If you are looking for alot of bass, the best bet would be to use 2 external amplifiers, 1 for the interior speakers, and 1 for a subwoofer. You would then need to purchase an electronic crossover. With this setup, you can remove all of the low frequencies from the coaxial speakers and put them where they belong, with the sub. You will gain EXCEPTIONAL clarity and a very high volume before distortion level. Again it will depend on what your budget is and if you are willing to compromise on some cab space. The only other option you have at this point is if you are wanting to play your music at high volume levels, you will just need to reduce the bass level as you increase volume. I hope this has helped. Good luck with your venture!!

What is best way to wire 2 mtx thunder 4500's to a kenwood kac-7205? thanks! james


I would hook up the subs in parallel set up. Lower the resistance causes the amp to create more power to the amp. Your amp can handle 2 ohm load so from my stand point it is best to set up this way. Here is the link that displays how to set up subs:

They are not wanting to play like they should


Hello again debrahood196,

Your KAC-5204 amp is only rated to put out 60 watts per channel and really cannot push very hard. If your subs are the KFC-W110S, they are 8ohm subs and you will get better power from the amp by using the bridged connections, positive (+) on the left channel and negative (-) on the right channel. Wire both positives and both negatives from both subs to the bridged connections and the output will be 150 watts into 4ohms. Giving each sub 75 watts should make them push a little harder.

Kenwood KAC-X1R and one 12" Kenwood KFC-XW1222D at 1 ohm blow out.Why is that happening?


You may have a high resistance in your positive or negative power supply. with your amp you need to use at least a 2 gauge power cable. Is your fuse blowing? if so then a short circuit to ground may be causing that.
Good luck

Speaker type


I posted a comment on your other post not nodicing this one. But commenting on the choice of amps, It would all depend on what the model number is on the pioneer amp. Also it would depend on what kind of sound you want. Could you get me the model number of that and double check your model numbers for the kenwood sub and amp. The amp that I show when I googled it was rated at 250 watt at 2 ohms no where near 1000. so if I have the wrong amp let me know, I would like to help. Thanks

Ok i basically have a kenwood kac-6404 amp and its a 2/3/4 channel i was wondering how i can alter them or switch it from 2 to 3 to 4


i guess there is no switch. its how you wire the outputs together to create 1 channel from 2 channels. consult the wiring guide that goes with your amp
