If you are referring to the rear speakers, it is normal. The rear speakers are not supposed to get a signal as loud as the fronts or center.

A surround sound system was originally developed for playing movies and the rear channels are for effects. In most surround modes the center channel will always be the loudest with the widest range of audio signals.

I have been repairing these type of systems since they have been on the market, so I know a lot about them.

This Kenwood you have is like most surround systems and does not have a feature that you would obviously like to have, 5 channel stereo. Only a few surround systems have this feature and they cost much more than the Kenwood systems. Denon and Marantz both make one with that feature. In 5 channel stereo you get a full signal to all the speakers. All the other surround modes you get a much lower signal to the rear speakers.

So in closing, you do not need it fixed, there is nothing wrong with it. You have a common complaint that many people have who buy a surround sound system but are not fully understanding of just what a surround systems is supposed to be capable of
. This is something that the salesman who sold it to you should have explained to you, that way you could have purchased a system that would have better suited your needs.

I would be happy to give you more help if you would like, just let me know. As I already stated, I have many years of experience with surround sounds systems, in fact I own the exact Kenwood model that you have and I like it very much. It is about the best you can get for that price.

Connect a Sony SA-W3800 powered subwoofer to a kenwood receiver


Yes. It needs to know you have a subwoofer or it won't send low frequencies out to one. Then you have to calibrate its level to match the rest of your speakers. Hit the SETUP section in the manual (available at retrevo.com).

Sound problem


Try cleaning the volume control with an electronics switch cleaner spray. If that does not resolve the problem and it seems to happen at low volumes more than load volumes, then the output relay needs to be replaced. Keep us posted. Dan

No sound at all


IF im correct if you only have high outputs which are RCA jacks, between the tunner and the amp, rather then the low inputs which is the factory hornest that your car manufactor installed, when you power down the amp you should have no sound at all. id assume 99.9%

Full Surround Sound


Dear Jennis,

Have you set properly your input source? What about program mode on your playback on your amp was it properly set. You have to let the amp knows that you are using an optical cable for input, this must be done from the controls.

Fixing a Kenwood KD 491F turntable


The reason why the audio is low, is that todays receivers do not have a phono input, and these types of inputs are differant then the ones of today. You will need whats called a phono preamp, and one should still be available from Radio shack. Or you can go here to find out more about them: http://www.phonopreamps.com/ To reseat the belt, take off the rubber mat on the turntabe disc. Install the belt around the inside ridge, there should be a couple of holes on the platter disc. Install the patter back onto the center spindle. Turn the platter around till you see the motor pully through one of the holes in the platter. Take the belt that is around the turntable platter, and pull it over to the motor pulley. Good Luck
