Safety precautions
2WARNING
2CAUTION
To prevent injury or fire, take the
following precautions:
To prevent damage to the machine, take
the following precautions:
• Insert the unit all the way in until it is fully locked
in place. Otherwise it may fall out of place when
jolted.
• When extending the ignition, battery, or ground
wires, make sure to use automotive-grade wires
or other wires with a 0.75mm² (AWG18) or more
to prevent wire deterioration and damage to the
wire coating.
• To prevent a short circuit, never put or leave any
metallic objects (such as coins or metal tools)
inside the unit.
• If the unit starts to emit smoke or strange smells,
turn off the power immediately and consult your
Kenwood dealer.
• Make sure not to get your fingers caught between
the faceplate and the unit.
• Be careful not to drop the unit or subject it to
strong shock.
The unit may break or crack because it contains
glass parts.
• Make sure to ground the unit to a negative 12V
DC power supply.
• Do not open the top or bottom covers of the unit.
• Do not install the unit in a spot exposed to direct
sunlight or excessive heat or humidity. Also avoid
places with too much dust or the possibility of
water splashing.
• Do not set the removed faceplate or the faceplate
case in areas exposed to direct sunlight, excessive
heat or humidity. Also avoid places with too much
dust or the possibility of water splashing.
• To prevent deterioration, do not touch the
terminals of the unit or faceplate with your
fingers.
• Do not subject the faceplate to excessive shock,
as it is a piece of precision equipment.
• When replacing a fuse, only use a new one with
the prescribed rating. Using a fuse with the wrong
rating may cause your unit to malfunction.
• To prevent a short circuit when replacing a fuse,
first disconnect the wiring harness.
• Do not place any object between the faceplate
and the unit.
• Do not apply excessive force to the moving
faceplate. Doing so will cause damage or
malfunction.
• Do not apply excessive force to the open
faceplate or place objects on it. Doing so will
cause damage or breakdown.
• Do not use your own screws. Use only the screws
provided. If you use the wrong screws, you could
damage the unit.

Notes on playing MP3/WMA
KDC-X679/MP6025/MP625 can play MP3 (MPEG1, 2
Audio Layer 3)/WMA. Note, however, that the MP3/
WMA recording media and formats acceptable are
limited. When writing MP3/WMA, pay attention to
the following restrictions.
• Play mode may not be possible when portions of the
functions of Windows Media Player 9 or higher are used.
Acceptable media
The Displayable ID3 tag is ID3 version 1.x.
For the character code, refer to the List of Codes.
The MP3/WMA recording media acceptable to this
unit are CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW.
When using CD-RW, do full format not quick format
to prevent malfunction.
Entering ID3 tag
Acceptable medium formats
The following formats are available for the media
used in this unit. The maximum number of
characters used for file and folder name including
the delimiter (".") and three-character extension are
indicated in parentheses.
• ISO 9660 Level 1 (12 characters)
• ISO 9660 Level 2 (31 characters)
• Joliet (64 character; Up to 32 characters are
displayed)
• Romeo (128 character; Up to 64 characters are
displayed)
• Long file name (200 characters; Up to 64
characters are displayed)
• Maximum number of characters for folder name:
64 (Joliet; Up to 32 characters are displayed)
For a list of available characters, see the instruction
manual of the writing software and the section
Entering file and folder names below.
The media reproducible on this unit has the
following limitations:
• Maximum number of directory levels: 8
• Maximum number of files per folder: 255
• Maximum number of folders: 50
MP3/WMA written in the formats other than the
above may not be successfully played and their file
names or folder names are not properly displayed.
Settings for your MP3/WMA encoder and
CD writer
Do the following setting when compressing
audio data in MP3/WMA data with the MP3/WMA
encoder.
• Transfer bit rate: MP3: 8 —320 kbps
WMA: 48 —192 kbps
• Sampling frequency
MP3: 8, 11.025, 12, 16, 22.05, 24, 32, 44.1, 48 kHz
WMA: 32, 44.1, 48 kHz
When you use your CD writer to record MP3/WMA
up to the maximum disc capacity, disable additional
writing. For recording on an empty disc up to the
maximum capacity at once, check Disc at Once.
8 |
Entering file and folder names
The code list characters are the only file names and
folder names that can be entered and displayed.
If you use any other character for entry, the file and
folder names are not displayed correctly. They may
neither be displayed correctly depending on the CD
writer used.
The unit recognizes and plays only those MP3/WMA
which have the MP3/WMA extension (.MP3/.WMA).
• A file with a name entered with characters not on the
code list may not play correctly.
Writing files into a medium
When a medium containing MP3/WMA data is
loaded, the unit checks all the data on the medium.
If the medium contains a lot of folders or non-MP3/
WMA files, therefore, it takes a long time until the
unit starts playing MP3/WMA.
In addition, it may take time for the unit to move
to the next MP3/WMA file or a File Search or Folder
Search may not be performed smoothly.
Loading such a medium may produce loud noise to
damage the speakers.
• Do no attempt to play a medium containing a non-MP3/
WMA file with the MP3/WMA extension.
The unit mistakes non-MP3/WMA files for MP3/WMA data
as long as they have the MP3/WMA extension.
• Do not attempt to play a medium containing non MP3/
WMA.

MP3/WMA playing order
When selected for play, Folder Search, File Search,
or for Folder Select, files and folders are accessed
in the order in which they were written by the CD
writer.
Because of this, the order in which they are
expected to be played may not match the order in
which they are actually played. You may be able to
set the order in which MP3/WMA are to be played
by writing them onto a medium such as a CD-R
with their file names beginning with play sequence
numbers such as "01" to "99", depending on your
CD writer.
For example, a medium with the following folder/
file hierarchy is subject to Folder Search, File Search,
or Folder Select as shown below.

2WARNING
If you connect the ignition wire (red) and the battery wire
(yellow) to the car chassis (ground), you may cause a short
circuit, that in turn may start a fire. Always connect those
wires to the power source running through the fuse box.

1. To prevent a short circuit, remove the key from
the ignition and disconnect the - battery.
2. Make the proper input and output wire
connections for each unit.
3. Connect the speaker wires of the wiring harness.
4. Connect the wiring harness wires in the
following order: ground, battery, ignition.
5. Connect the wiring harness connector to the
unit.
6. Install the unit in your car.
7. Reconnect the - battery.
8. Press the reset button.
• If your car’s ignition does not have an ACC position,
connect the ignition wires to a power source that can be
turned on and off with the ignition key. If you connect
the ignition wire to a power source with a constant
voltage supply, as with battery wires, the battery may die.
• If the console has a lid, make sure to install the unit so
that the faceplate will not hit the lid when closing and
opening.
• If the fuse blows, first make sure the wires aren’t touching
to cause a short circuit, then replace the old fuse with
one with the same rating.
• Insulate unconnected wires with vinyl tape or other
similar material. To prevent a short circuit, do not remove
the caps on the ends of the unconnected wires or the
terminals.
• Connect the speaker wires correctly to the terminals to
which they correspond. The unit may be damaged or fail
to work if you share the - wires or ground them to any
metal part in the car.
• When only two speakers are being connected to the
system, connect the connectors either to both the front
output terminals or to both the rear output terminals
(do not mix front and rear). For example, if you connect
the + connector of the left speaker to a front output
terminal, do not connect the - connector to a rear
output terminal.
• After the unit is installed, check whether the brake lamps,
blinkers, wipers, etc. on the car are working properly.
• Mount the unit so that the mounting angle is 30° or less.
