Re: Out of Sight Audio - Radio Delete
I got the same for my truck. Works as advertised but a few things I didn't like.
To power a sub amp the front or rear speaker outputs would have to be connected to the sub's speaker level inputs. The RCA outputs of the Kenwood aren't powered if the RCA inputs aren't used, (which they aren't if your using it just for bluetooth.)
There was background noise even with the engine off. Kind of a white noise.
The wired volume control would not totally mute the sound when set to its lowest level. I had to compromise by turning down the bluetooth volume on my phone to get at a reasonable low level without affecting normal listening levels. If I turned the phone down to completely mute the sound then there was no volume when the amp was turned up.
I didn't try very hard to troubleshoot this as I wasn't very happy with the sound of the system overall. That doesn't mean the Kenwood was at fault as I installed the 4x6 speakers in the dash and behind the back corners of the cab. I think my design was flawed in that respect.
Really good information, thank you - I'm seeing more landmines than I expected
