About KENWOOD
The leading creator and producer of communications and consumer electronics is JVCKENWOOD Corporation. JVCKENWOOD USA was established in 1961 and is the largest sales division of JVCKENWOOD Corporation of Japan. Its products are renowned for their quality, performance, and affordability, and both consumers and industry professionals have acknowledged this.

It’s well known that JVCKENWOOD USA introduces significant new products to the consumer electronics sector. In 1981, the business created the first home theater audio/video amplifier. Additionally, JVCKENWOOD invented the first cassette deck for cars that deters theft by sliding out of the dash, the first with 24 presets, the first with an automatic broadcast sensor system and automatic noise reduction, and the first with polypropylene speaker cones. Numerous novel technologies that were eventually imitated by others were created over the years by JVCKENWOOD engineers.

This instruction manual is used to describe the models listed above. Model availability and features (functions) may differ depending on the country and sales area. Take the time to read through this instruction manual. Familiarity with installation and operation procedures will help you obtain the best performance from your new receiver.

Installation and Connection

WARNINGS

  • DO NOT connect the ignition wire (red) and the battery wire (yellow) to the car chassis (ground), you may cause a short circuit, that in turn may start a fire.
  • DO NOT cut out the fuse from the ignition wire (red) and the battery wire (yellow). The power supply must be connected to the wires via the fuse.
  • Always connect the ignition wire (red) and the battery wire (yellow) to the power source running through the fuse box.

 CAUTIONS

  • Install this unit in the console of your car.
  • Do not touch the metal parts of this unit during and shortly after the use of the unit. Metal parts such as the heat sink and enclosure become hot.

When parking at a low-ceiling area, turn off the unit to store the antenna. As when the unit is installed in the car with the function of the auto antenna; the radio antenna extends automatically when you turn on the unit with the antenna control wire (ANT. CONT) connected (page 58).

Before installation

Precautions on installation and connection

  • Mounting and wiring this product requires skills and experience. For best safety, leave the mounting and wiring work to professionals.
  • Mount the unit so that the mounting angle is 30° or less.
  • Make sure to ground the unit to a negative 12 V DC power supply.
  • Do not install the unit in a location exposed to direct sunlight, excessive heat, or humidity. Also, avoid places with too much dust or the possibility of water splashing.
  • Do not use your screws. Use only the screws provided. If you use the wrong screws, you could damage the unit.
  • After the unit is installed, check whether the brake lamps, blinkers, wipers, etc. on the car are working properly.
  • Do not press hard on the panel surface when installing the unit to the car. Otherwise scratches, damage, or failure may result.
  • If the power is not turned on (“Miswiring DC Offset Error”, “Warning DC Offset Error” is displayed), the speaker wire may have a short circuit or have touched the chassis of the car and the protection function may have been activated. In this case, the speaker wire should be checked.
  • Keep all cables away from heat-dissipating metal parts.
  • If your car’s ignition does not have an ACC position, connect the ignition wires to a power source that can be turned on and off with the ignition key. If you connect the ignition wire to a power source with a constant voltage supply, such as with battery wires, the battery may be drained.
  • If the fuse blows, first make sure the wires are not touching to cause a short circuit, then replace the old fuse with one with the same rating.
  • Insulate unconnected wires with vinyl tape or other similar material. To prevent a short circuit, do not remove the caps, and do not let the cable out at the ends of the unconnected wires or the terminals.
  • Secure the wires with cable clamps and wrap vinyl tape around the wires that come into contact with metal parts to protect the wires and prevent short circuits.
  • Connect the speaker wires correctly to the terminals to which they correspond. The unit may be damaged or fail to work if you share the wires or ground them to any metal part in the car.
  • When only two speakers are being connected to the system, connect both connectors either to the front output terminals or to the rear output terminals (do
