    I have an old Kenwood Japanese head unit, the MDV D503. (Pics of Rear and Harness) It lacks RCA inputs but I'd like to connect a Mirrorlink adapter to mirror my phone. Is there a way to input video through any of the wires on the harness? There's an iPod connector but I don't think that's...

    I have a truck that I bought with a Kenwood KDC-MP142. It was working fine until I pulled the negative battery cable to do some work. When I hooked it back up the unit just flashes red and I can hear a pulsating "buzz" noise as well. I have watched 1000 you tube videos and tried all the...

    Hey all, new here, but have been doing car stereo stuff for a long time, but far from an expert. I like the Kenwood series, and the Excelons are nice. I have a DDX393, and it works well. I've been copying my vast CD collection onto a 32gb SD card, then putting that card into an SD card reader...

    So it's been a stressful day today; the gain on my amps been quite high for some time from my old head unit. I went to lower it so i can take advantage of the volume.

    After too many experiments over an extended period of time, my system finally sounds like the musicians are on the hood. So I wanted to pass along a cheat sheet in case it helps someone in the future. All this information is probably available in other places but, either I didn’t understand...

    I am going to build a stereo box, possibly even make it a table, using 4 door speakers an extra double din kenwood radio I have and a small subwoofer and amp.

    After 2 months of installing, I finally got a chance to listen to my system and it sounds great! My question is where do I measure the RCA voltage (before or after the MS8)? Since my MS8 is mounted under my passenger seat it was easier to measure it at the amps. According to my Steve Meade...
