Kenwood Amp Install

Ok, so I've tried to search and I'm coming up empty.

I recently installed (4) Infinity Kappa 6.82.11cf speakers, (1) 10" Pioneer shallow mount sub all powered off a Kenwood XR900-5 amp.

The amp has the following adjustability:

Input sensitivity for channels A, B, and sub (5=min, .2= max)
Bass boost (0-8 in dB)
Low Pass Frequency for sub(50-200 Hz)
High Pass Frequency for CH A, B. (50-200 Hz)


My *main* question is what is the pre-out voltage on the factory 2006 6 cd changer to setup the input sensitivity.

My next questions would be advice on the filter frequencies. I will addjust the bass boost depending on how everything sounds once the others are tuned.

Thanks!

If I'm reading this right you are wanting to use the factory radio with the amp. There are no pre outs on the factory unit. You will need a line output converter to tap into a set of speakers. This will give you an unamplified RCA signal the amplifier can now use.

When ever I did the frequencies on the amp I always stared low pass around 120hz then moved as I felt necessary and left bass boost all the way down. Hope that helped maybe

You need to go with a better stereo with low outputs.

You are not going to get the sound you deserve for the amp and speakers.
I know a few things about car stereo, if you look at my profile there are some pics of my all active 12 channel system.
Stereos aren't that expensive depending on how far you want to go
