My kenwood headunit is saying
Hi, this is usually caused by a short in one of the speakers or the speaker wires. Take the connector off the head unit and use an ohmmeter on each pair of speaker wires to check impedance. If impedance is less than 2 ohms on any pair of wires, check the speaker impedance for that pair. If the speaker impedance is low, replace the speaker--otherwise replace the wires. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Which way to run my current setup? Help!!
Put the kickers with the xplode 1 per channel giving each sub around 450-500 watts. Make sure you select a good ground connection, use think copper wire and both connections must be tightened enough to not move. 10 gauge is good. Run think battery pos+ cable wire from your battery to your apps install spot. Have a fusible link in between the battery and amp. Dont run your speaker wire or rca amp cable with your pos+ wire or it will pick up current causing a high pitched tone. Run remote connection to blue wire on radio harness or to the fuse box ign. Label. Make sure them kickers have a tight seal, and adequate air space. Ported boxes do hit harder but i prefer all sealed myself. Face subs to back of vehicle and roll windows down 15 percent. Good Luck. Holler Back
I have a kenwood cd reciver and I can't turnoff standby mode
This is usually an indication that the power board has a bad component and the signal wont switch on. The problem is usually related to capacitors and unless you want to replace the whole power supply (if you can find it,) the repair is down to the individual components and it technical in nature requiring troubleshooting gear and soldering skill
Kenwood kdc-w3041 protect mode
The "protect" display is probably being caused by a shorted or grounded (touching vehicle chassis or other ground) speaker wire. Check the speaker wires for bare spots, etc and insulate or replace as necessary.
You do not need to remove the fuses to force a "cold reset" of the W-3041. You can simply press the "reset" button on the front of the unit. It's the little recessed button at the lower left of the volume control. Use the straightened end of a paper clip or ballpoint pen to momentarily hold the button in.
Hope this helps.
