It's a very common plug. Just look in you local phone book for the nearest car audio dealer. If they sell Kenwood, they can get it for you. My shop charges about $20 for new ones and $10 for used ones.

Need connection details for Blaupunkt Bamberg SQR 05


It should follow the usual practice:
White and white with black stripe- Left front.
Gray and gray with white stripe Right front.
Blue goes to the power antenna lead
Yellow is the data store and should connect to a point that is always hot from the Battery "+" and not interupted by the ignition switch It should have a 3 amp fuse.
Red is the main power and should be wired to a point that foes get interupted by ignition switch- such as existing radio It should be protected by 8 amp fuse.
Black is ground (-)
Orange is dimable illumination- wire to a dash light
The black wire with an 1/8 jack end is for portable devices to plug into.
Green and green with black stripe Left rear speaker
Violet and violet with black stripe is right rear speaker.

Alternately you can opt for the red and white RCA terminated leads to plug into another amp's input for rear speakers,

Installing aftermarket Kenwood stereo on 1991 Subaru Legacy. The subaru stock wiring does not have a red ignition wire. Can i simply connect the kenwood ignition wire to the Accessory +12v (Yellow/red)?...


Hi, according to my source, there should be an accessory wire that is blue with a yellow stripe. If your is yellow/red, that's fine. You actually should prefer an accessory wire to an ignition wire as there may be less static on the accessory wire. Just make sure the wire does not have power when the key is off. Don't use the illumination wires--they are not needed for the aftermarket head unit and should be taped off.

I need a wiring diagram to hook up a new radio.


First you will need to get a wire harness for your specific make, model & year of car. This will interface the car wiring plug to your new clarion headunit.

Next you will connect the wires from your purchased wire harness to the wires of your Clarion Headunit. Using **** connectors with a wire crimper is the best way to do so.

Here is a wire color coding guide for the wires on your Clarion headunit:

P o w e r Memory (+12v Constant) Yellow Ignition (+12v Switched) Red Ground (-) Black Dimmer Pink/White (Alpine only) Power Antenna Blue Amplifier Turn-on Blue/White Phone Mute Light Blue (Sony only) S p e a k e r s Right Front (+) Gray Right Front (-) Gray/Black Left Front (+) White Left Front (-) White/Black Right Rear (+) Violet Right Rear (-) Violet/Black Left Rear (+) Green Left Rear (-) Green/Black
