Not getting any output from subwoofer, all connections are right,everything is on.

DOUBLE CHECK YOUR RCA CABLES. MAKE SURE THEY R GOOD & THAT THIER IN THE RIGHT SPOT ON THE AMP AND RADIO DECK.IF YOUR LIGHTS COME ON. THEN TRY THIS........ IF THAT DOES NOT WORK. CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR SUBS R CONN IN THE SUB BOX.IT COULD B SOMETHING THAT SMALL

My kenmore 5204 amp red light turns on but no sound comes out of the subwoofers, any idea?

The red light usually means "protection" and that there is a problem. Low voltage etc... Check the main lead and check the voltage on the trigger wire and the fuse on the amp.

I have a Kenwood KAC-5204 amp on dual Kenwood W-110S subs, been working fine since I installed it all about a month ago, and I got in my car this morning and noticed no bass. I saw that my red power light...

Check the fuse in the amp. There should also be a fusable link that houses a huge fuse, if that blows it will give the same effect. You will want to check to make sure that the wire that runs from your battery to the amp is secure and free of corrosion as well. If all of the above is fine, then I would recommend that you check to see if the rca cables are plugged in securely in the head unit.

How to hook up a kenwood amp.kac-5204

All amps are basicly the same. It should be plain as day where the speakers connect to.
The 12V screw connects to the main power from battery, be sure to fuse that wire and use a proper size wire, thicker is better,I suggest at least 8gauge with 40amp fuse. The GND is ground and should connect to car metal, file paint for soild connection. The REM is remote and connects to the remote of headunit or if you have a stock deck to the acc of car found in wire harness of headunit. Plug in the RCA's to head unit, or get a converter to plug into speaker wires from car if you have a stock headunit.

Red Light

that means you probably have a shorted speaker wire, a bad speaker or the amp itself is bad, try disconnecting the speakers one at a time and see if it turns on or not. if the red light stays on with no speakers hooked up it means the amp is bad

They are not wanting to play like they should

Hello again debrahood196,

Your KAC-5204 amp is only rated to put out 60 watts per channel and really cannot push very hard. If your subs are the KFC-W110S, they are 8ohm subs and you will get better power from the amp by using the bridged connections, positive (+) on the left channel and negative (-) on the right channel. Wire both positives and both negatives from both subs to the bridged connections and the output will be 150 watts into 4ohms. Giving each sub 75 watts should make them push a little harder.
