When connecting the related system components, refer also
to the instruction manuals of the related components.
Do not plug in the power lead until all connections are com-
Caution regarding placement
To maintain proper ventilation, be sure to leave a space around the

The system control connection
Connecting system control cords after connecting a Kenwood audio component system lets you take advantage of convenient system
There are two Kenwood system control modes. Make connections according to the groups of terminal symbols shown below.
[SL16] Mode : for
[XS8] Mode : lets you combine F, f, and ƒ terminals
This unit is compatible with both [SL16] and [XS8] modes. It comes from the factory set to the [SL16] mode. To switch to the [XS8] mode,
follow the instructions in "Switching from [SL16] to [XS8]".
1. [SL16] equipment cannot be combined with [XR], [XS], and [XS8] equipment for system
operations. If your equipment consists of this kind of combination, please do not connect
any system control cords. Even without system control cords, normal operations can be
carried out without affecting performance.
2. If your amp or receiver does not have a system control terminal, do not connect any
system control cords to the system control terminals on the other components.
3. Do not connect system control cords to any components other than those specified by
Kenwood. It may cause a malfunction and damage your equipment.
4. Be sure the system control plugs are inserted all the way in to the system control termi-
1.Connect all cords firmly. If connections are loose, you may lose the sound or interconnectable system control operations may not work.
2.When plugging and unplugging connection cord, be sure to first remove the power cord from the AC outlet. Plugging / unplugging
connection cords without removal of the power cord can cause malfunctions or damage to the unit.
