I have a custom sub w/5 wires coming out and leads for rca's. 1 red, 1 black, 1 blue and 2 white. I have a power wire and a ground attached to the frame from the dash and sub-outs for the rca's on the car stereo.
how do i configure the 5 wires ?? i'm guessing the blue wire is the ground -which leaves me with the power hook-ups and the white sub wires.

Re: powered subwoofer wiring
Red = 12v power Always
Black = Ground Allways
Blue = memory wire that has to run to a Amplifiers Memory Terminal
2x White, seems to be the dimmer and Ant, but im unsure as of these two,
Rca's will go into the AUDIO out of the cd player RED and White holes, that will go to your amplifier.
Im unsure if your talking about a Cd player here, but it seems this it is. If so you should have color coded wires for speakers also (ex- green, green with white stripe, Yellow, yellow with white stripe )
Please provide more information if this dosent solve your problem

Hello, here is Clarions wire codes. FRONT Right SPKR: +Gray -Gray/Blk, FRONT Left SPKR: +White -White/Blk, REAR Right SPKR: +Purple -Purple/Blk, REAR Left SPKR: +Green -Green/Blk
Brown Wire = Phone Mute Lead (If applicable) Yellow Wire = 12V battery lead in (Connect directly to battery) Red Wire = 12V Ignition wire (Connect to Acc switch) Blue/White Wire = Amp turn on lead Black Wire = Chassis Ground Orange/White Wire = Illumination Lead (Connect to dimmer switch) Blue Wire = Auto Antenna Lead (lowers power antenna Do not use for Amp Turn on! Use the Blue/White Wire for Amp,EQ, Ect.. turn on wire only
RCA Connectors if applicable:
Black RCA Harness: White RCA = Rear Audio Left Sub Output 1 Red RCA = Rear Audio Right Sub Output 2
Gray RCA Harness: White RCA = Front Left Audio Out to amp Red RCA = Front Right Audio Out to amp
Here's how it goes:
grey=right front pos.
grey/black=right front neg.
white=left front pos.
white/black=left front neg.
violet=right rear pos.
violet/black=right rear neg.
green=left rear pos.
green/black=left rear neg.
red=12 volt switched power source
yellow=12 volt constant power source (direct to battery)
orange/white=illumination (switched source,not to head light switch)
blue/white=amp turn on lead (to remote turn on lead of amp)
blue=auto antenna (switched power source)
brown=phone mute lead (to cell phone mute lead)
RCA connector leads:
red=right rear/right rear subwoofer
white=left rear/left rear subwoofer
(connect to external amp)
red=right aux input
white=left aux input
(connect to external unit)
red=right dual zone output
white=left dual zone output
(connect to wireless head phones)
That should be all there is. on the yellow that goes direct to the battery you need to use an inline fuse holder with 30 amp fuse.
Here is a cheat sheet I compiled that you will find very helpful:
Plug Types/Application 7 Way - RV Trailers, Horse and Utility Trailers 6 Way - Horse, Stock and Utility 4 Way - Utility Trailers
Columns are Color, Function, Mark on the plug. Seven wire Trailer plugs:
Horse, stock or utility trailers: White = Ground - 1 Blue = Electric Brakes - 2 Brown = Tail and clearance lights - 3 Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Yellow = Left turn/Brake - 5
Green = Right turn Brake - 6
Orange or Purple (not both) = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7
White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Green = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4 Red = Left turn/Brake - 5
Brown = Right turn Brake - 6
Yellow = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7
Six wire trailer plugs:
Horse, stock or utility trailers: White = Ground - GD Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT Green = Right turn Brake -RT Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM Red or Black (not both) = Battery, aux power - A Blue = Electric Brakes - S
Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark) White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Not used -
Brown = Right turn Brake - RT Green
= Tail and clearance lights -TM Black = Battery, aux power - A Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
Blue = Electric Brakes - S
Four wire plugs: White = Ground Yellow = Left turn/Brake Green = Right turn Brake Brown = Tail and clearance lights
The green wires are for signal input to the included amp and should be connected to a pair of RCA preamp outputs on your head unit. The thin blue wire connects from "remote" on the amp to a switched 12V output on the head unit (usually blue or blue/white). The red wire is for power and goes through the fuse to positive battery. You also need to connect the amp terminal marked "ground" to the metallic chassis of your vehicle, within a distance of about 1/2 meter or less. There's usually a short piece of wire with black insulation included in most amp wiring kits. If your Fusion sub did not come with such a wire, you can use any wire that is the same gauge (or bigger) than the red power wire.
You need 1 thick ground cable ( usually brown)
you need 1 thick power cable ( same thickness and wire as ground usually red )
you should have 1 rem wire ( thin blue )
RCAs, 2 for sub, extra 2 for 2 speakers.
The rest I have no idea what they are.
You need speaker cables to sub or amp.
Some products use different colouring. Maybe the 9 pin connector is for head deck to speakers.
Red - Power (to ACC in vehicle)
Black - Ground
Yellow - 12V positive (battery lead)
Blue/White - External Amplifier Control Lead
White - Left Front Spkr +
White/Black - Left Front Spkr -
Gray - Right Front Spkr +
Gray/Black - Right Front Spkr -
Green - Left Rear Spkr +
Green/Black - Left Rear Spkr -
Violet - Right Rear Spkr +
Violet/Black - Right Rear Spkr -
The red and white RCA pigtail leads is for AUX input
Left set of Preamp Outputs - Rear Channels
Right set of Preamp Outputs - Front Channels
Only Models C3433U, C3304U, and C3333U have a 2nd set of RCA pigtail leads for subwoofer output.
The DXZ375 has two sets of RCA outputs (1 red plug, 1 white plug) located on the back of the unit. The set with the white main wire is for a front amplifier, and the one with the black main wire is the rear. You want the black one.
I'm assuming you also have an amplifier for your subs and the necessary wiring. You will need to run a 12v+ from the battery to the amplifier, splice a power-on signal wire from the ACC Power wire on the stereo's wiring harness (red wire) as well as connect the amp to the stereo via the RCA outputs.
you will need a line-level converter to use this subwoofer- it is a rectangular-shaped box with wires coming out on one end and red-and-white RCA plugs one the other. The end with the wires coming out will hook to the receiver, and the other end will need to plug into the sub.
