I've used a wiring kit and have connected all the necessary wires however I am only getting the two front speakers and not hearing anything from the door speakers, rear speakers, or the Tweeters. This is in a 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan and all the speakers were working when I took the factory radio out. Am I missing something here? Settings on the radio have been adjusted and not hearing a thing. Thanks for the help.
i am pretty sure your van has a stock amp in it. if thats the case you need to wire up the remote wire on your factory harness (antenna switch) to the amp control on the kenwood.
i got dat ***** sittin on 22s! SUPERMAN EDITION!
Yea I'm pretty sure your stock head unit wasn't driving all those speakers by it self, I have the stock 96 van, and i have only dash and rear speakers, if you got more than that i do know that these vans come with an INFINITY amp if I'm not mistaken, you'd have to connect it's power on to your HU. I don't know how exactly that works since i have no experience. But yea I'm pretty sure you Amp isn't getting any power.
Yes, it is the factory amplifier. For vans with the Infinity sound system (speaker grills will probably say Infinity) there is a factory amplifier powering the rear speakers. If you have used a radio harness adapter, its easy. Just connect the blue wire in the harness to the blue (or blue/white) wire on your Kenwood.
You Kenwood unit may have 2 blue wires. One for power antenna and one for "remote". You want to use the Remote wire. (Power antenna wire may only be on during AM/FM tuning). If you only have 1 blue wire, then the choice is easy.

If anything, it'll have a blue and blue with white stripe. Blue with white stripe == remote. Blue by itself == power antenna.You Kenwood unit may have 2 blue wires
