3 in 1 (Question, Comment, Game) Let's play Audiophiles

post #1 of 3

So, here we have a amplifier, let's play a game and then I will tell you what was wrong, I also have a question...



What do you think happened in the above photo? Be specific!


Do you guys think that Y-Splitters for RCA to 1/8'' is going to reduce audio or stay the same?


What do you think about Kenwood products?

Looks to me like a bad connection against that screw terminal heated it up to the point it melted the solder off. Though I'm not sure how you could get a solder joint so de-soldered without trying.

Either that or someone tried to desolder it and ended up melting it?


As for the question, it depends on what you mean. If you are just taking 2 RCAs and turning it into one 1/8" audio jack, that's not really a Y-splitter and it won't decrease the signal. If you are actually splitting 1 signal and sending it to 2 sources, it will decrease the volume.

Never owned any Kenwoods other than a few car radios. Can't comment on them.

The soldering joint actually was burned throug by itself.. I had to clean it up and resolder. I took the terminal contact plate from another amplifier and replaced this one, they were the same model of amp. Just the one I took the terminal plate from was toast... It works perfectly now.

Thanks for answering my question about the splitter.
