Kenwood KDC-BT752HD Bluetooth Through the Front Speakers Only?

Kenwood KDC-BT752HD

A while back I installed a Kenwood KDC-BT752HD in one of my cars to replace the lame unit that came from the factory.  The main feature I wanted was BT audio (A2DP streaming), Pandora functionality and HD radio were bonuses.  I use the Pandora functions much more than I expected I would.

Anyway, as a cheap unit it did it’s job just fine except that the Bluetooth audio only played out of the front speakers.  I upgraded the firmware, but that didn’t help.

It turns out that BT through the front speakers is the default setting in the BT configuration menu.  Why that’s the default, I can’t imagine.

To change it to all speakers:

  1. Turn on the unit
  2. Press the Phone icon to enter Bluetooth mode
  3. Turn the Volume knob to “Settings” and press Volume
  4. Turn the Volume knob to “Detailed Set” and press Volume
  5. Turn the Volume knob to “Settings” and press Volume
  6. Turn the Volume knob to “BT HF/AUDIO” and press Volume
  7. Turn the Volume knob to “All” and press Volume
  8. Press the back arrow repeatedly until you back out of the menu

Next time you play Bluetooth audio you should have all speakers works.

You can see pages 22-24 in the radio’s manual for more details.
