How To Install A Kenwood Home Stereo

Asking how to install a Kenwood home stereo is pretty much the same as asking (in general) how to install a home stereo. Installation of most home stereos is the same, as long as you keep in mind:

  • Set-up
  • Proper wiring
  • Common Sense
  1. If you don’t plan on using a conventional a stereo cabinet…Your Kenwood home stereo should be placed on a level surface that is stable to insure its proper performance. So, in other words, don’t set in on a pile of dirty laundry and expect it to operate properly.  
  2. Then deal with the wiring. When installing a Kenwood home stereo its best to first read its owner’s manual. Otherwise, you can use common sense by simply remembering that inputs usually found on the backside of the receiver are designated as “in” and “out”. And realize that the “ins” are there to receive all the other electronic components’ signals, while the “outs” are provided primarily as plug-ins for external speakers.
  3. Make sure the components can breathe. Look for intentionally engineered holes in your Kenwood home stereo components’ casings. These are venting devices employed to avoid overheating, and should be treated in the same way you would the cold air return on a furnace or air conditioning unit.
  4. Then there’s the connecting of speakers. Using the “out” plugs on the receiver of your Kenwood home stereo
  5. makes the attachment of speakers (which are probably some of the best ever made if they’re from Kenwood)self-explanatory. However, you must be aware that while connecting it’s necessary to make sure that the two separate wires employed in speaker connection (usually colored bronze and silver) must never touch…since such a crossing of these will cause one or more speakers to malfunction.
  6. And you’ll probably need no tools. In most instances installing Yamaha home stereo can be done barehanded. But if this proves to be too much of a chore, you’ll probably find that a slotted and/or Phillip’s head screwdriver will be all that is required.

Then it’s just a matter of enjoying your unit’s sound.
