Im having a problem with my radio in my truck. The unit is kenwood and its brand new. The problem is i cant turn up the volume past 15 or the speakers start to crackle. I thought that the speakers were blown but when i bought new speakers they do the same thing. So after that i put a different radio in to see if it was the radio and that wasnt the problem. I also checked all the fuses and they are good. Im stumped with this problem. The truck is a gmc sierra 1500 crew cab, 2006. help me out please

Your unit has been previously programed with a code. Is this unit brand new from a shop or did you buy it form someone? If it's new you should contact the shop where you bought it from. If it's from someone, then contact them for the code. Unfortunately there is no way for us to bypass or reset the code...only Kenwood can reset the code. Sorry...
There are a few types of override procedures for Kenwood. Type 1 During the code request mode, while holding the DISP key
depressed, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds (so
that “…” disappears). Then using your remote enter your code.
Type 2 Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on face of radio at the same time. The four dash lines ( . . . . ) should "disappear".
Then using your remote enter your code.
Type 3 Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030 Press
and hold the 1 then the 6 preset key (preset keys are the buttons on
face of radio for storing you "favorite" radio stations). "C" should
display. Then using your remote, enter your code.
Enter your number from the remote control unit. Your code number is 5227 (KCAR)
* Press numeric key “5” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key * Press numeric key “2” ( 3 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key * Press numeric key “2” ( 1 time ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key * Press numeric key “7” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
The security is canceled and the set enters the TUNER mode! "TRACK UP BUTTON" for 3 seconds.. and youre done.
a few things...your speakers may not be a perfect match for the unit.
at high volume where the radio starts to distort there is an internal protection circuit that protects the radio...it's kicking in.
solution. Buy a power amp and take the load off of the radio.
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.
Your units drawing too much current. it could be a wireing problem, a speaker problem, or the amp has a problem. the correct way to troubleshoot this would first do or have the amp bench tested. Or you can remove all the speakers and wires and turn up the amp. If the fuse still pops,have the amp serviced. Good Luck
