Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

How can i hook up my kenwood stereo control amplifier KC-105 to my GPX home stereo system?


If the GPX has an headphone output you could use the a stereo headphone jack to two phono cables lead. Connect them to the "aux" socket of the amp, or another suitable - not a phono or deck - socket.
You would have to keep the volume level low on the GPX unit, but apart from that all the functions should work.

Can i get a virtual remote control anywhere for my kenwood stereo control amplifier kc-209


The first place to start looking for them is in the Kenwood website. Perhaps they may have a dozen of so working remotes for you. Give them an email and see if they can help you. I had a roller door garage and after 4 years of use, their cheap little remote stopped working. I emailed their website and they had a few in a spare box. Guess what? They gave me two for nothing. Kenwood could do that too. All it takes is hit on the website and email them. Cheer

That's a pretty standard setup. RCA cables from the KM207 to the preamp (KC207), and RCA cables from all of the other components into the KC207. Speakers connect into the KM207

Kenwood stereo control amplifier KC-206 doesn't work


I was able to use an universal remote control that I have, a Radio Shack Kameleon 6 in one remote control which I was able to program to run the audio portion of the Kenwood KC 206 control preamp. By adjust the remote sensor volume to max, I was able to get maximum volume out of the unit and drive the power section very nicely. Now I have to get up and manually turn the manual volume control for addition volume adjustment.

Hopefully Ken can find a remote that he can control the Kenwood control preamp the same way I did. Good luck here.

Kenwood stereo control amplifier KC-206 doesn't work


I found this thread when I was having the same problem with mine. Turns out that it's sort of a problem, but not really. Looking at the manual (which I found in another google search) I believe a "4" on the volume level corresponds to a default remote control setting. The remote varies the level between 0 and 10, but the "10" corresponds to the maximum volume setting on the preamp. So it actually works, it's just that the "4" reading doesn't change. There's probably a pin you can short somewhere to make that default to "10" which would be ideal. But I'm not sure where that is. Now on to my other problem. This particular preamp has a subtle 120 Hz hum...
