    Hey all.
    Ive got a kenwood head unit, bought used, with 3 rca preouts. Ive found out the sub out doesnt work. Can this be fixed? can i DIY? or where can it be repaired in Adelaide? Are head unit repairs worth the cost, or just buy another one? The unit works perfect, apart from this one fault.
    Thanks.

    I know with pioneer head units, the sub option is turned off by default in the menu system. Have you checked if its enabled?

    Yes, ive checked the sub settings in the menu. It appears to be an internal fault.

    By the time you stuff around finding someone willing to check it out, then add in the cost of their labour to dismantle & diagnose the fault, then the cost of any new parts needed and more labour to repair it. It starts to add up and at the end of the day you still have a second hand stereo that may shit itself in a couple of weeks time.
    It just makes sense to throw it in the bin and buy a new head unit.
    They are as cheap as chips nowadays for a decent unit anyway.
