Hi there i currently have a Kenwood kdc-mp528 deck and have recently purchased a 4 channel amp and speakers for the back, i ran all my wires and everything works great on tuner but when i change the source to CD it wont play out of my back speakers? i was wondering if anyone out there would be able to help me?
This is a common mistake. This problem indicates that you are using the solid blue wire from the head unit to the remote turn-on on the amp. This is a power antenna wire that only receives power when on FM radio. You need to replace this with the Blue & White wire from the head unit (power control wire) to your remote turn-on on your amp. This should solve your issue.

Some decks only give one pair of pre outs. Most 4 channel amps can use just a 2 channel input and feed the other 2 channels by the flip of an input selection switch. I recomend a 4 channel amp if you want to power front and rear speakers and be able to set the gains to blend properly, or you can run all 4 speakers at a 2 ohm stereo on 2 channels and run a sub on the remaining r channels. It just depends on how you want the setup to be nd to how much control you want. Let me know.
I appears to be impossible to put in a security code after the owner sets one. If you purchased this radio from someone and it is used, you need to get the code from the original owner.

all the kenwood units have a remote wire and its either blue or blue with a white trace, if you want to test it use a multimeter and not a test lamp as the current output is miliamps and you may damage the unit
