Hi, My friend (who has

If you keep guessing you may succeed in blowing something up.

The cables have RCA connectors or bare wires for a reason.

Get the manual out and read it.

Don't pay too much attention to the actual colors of speaker wire. Use the colors as reference. Each speaker has a plus and a minus. Connect them to corresponding plus and minus for their respective amplifier outputs.

Where on the Kenwood KR-V5580

Wherever the unidentified subwoofer's manual recommends. As there are no volume-controlled pre-amp outputs it would have to be a model that accepts full-range speaker level input if you want to control its volume locally.

Kenwood kr-v888d after "ON", through 3sec.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect 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.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

My kenwood, kr-v5580 dont have

There can be many causes of this. Please see the link below as the most likely condition is protect mode as described there. One experiment is to remove the speaker connections completely to see if the unit remains on. If so, the problem is with the speakers. If not, then the problem is internal to the unit. Feel free to post any additional questions.

Dear sir,my surround amp rear speakers are not

1st try a test tone to the rear speakers. If you can not get a test tone check the connections again.. once you get a test tone, use the "mode" button on your remote to cycle through the surround modes and make sure you are in a surround mode rather than a stereo mode.
