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 )

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 the color codes for the wires.
Blue/white=remote turn on for amp
Grey=right front (+)
Grey/black=right front (-)
White=left front (+)
White/black=left front (-)
Violet=right rear (+)
Violet/black=right rear (-)
Green=left rear (+)
Green/black=left rear (-)
Red=right rear to amp
White=left rear to amp
And that should be all the wires. Good luck!
Wiring Diagram / Color Codes 1. Power Antenna (dark blue wire) - Connect to power antenna or amplifier. 2. Ground (black wire) - Connect to ground terminal or clean, unpainted part of chassis. 3. Memory/Battery (yellow wire) - Connect to battery or 12 volt power source that is always on. The radio will not work if this wire is not connected. 4. Accessory/Ignition (red wire) - Connect to existing radio wire or radio fuse. 5. Left front speaker - White/Black is negative, White is positive 6. Right front speaker - Gray/Black is negative, Gray is positive 7. Left rear speaker - Green/Black is negative, Green is positive 8. Right rear speaker - Violet/Black is negative, Violet is positive 9. RCA Outputs to Amplifier - Black is front, Gray is rear 10. Auxiliary Input Cable 11. Subwoofer Output 12. Antenna 13. CD Changer

You are doing right on what you described. I really like to work with a clearly described what involved in an issue.
Now we have to use a Voltmeter to check if there is power to the amplifier. If there is power to the amplifier terminal, then the problem is at the amplifier, not the connection. Let check it out:
1- Turn on your Kenwood radio, make sure to hear sound from your regular speakers.
2- Turn remote control knob to the mid level between min and max.
3- Measure the blue wire where you spliced to ground to see if you have 12V, if it is not then the problem is right there.
4- Measure the Red wire power from the Amplifier to ground ( the bolt that you connect the negative power to see if there is 12V, if not trace back to the Fuse that you inserted between the positive terminal of the battery and the wire going through the firewall to correct it.
5- If you have 12V at step 3 and 4, then you have a defect unit, return it to the manufacturer for a replacement.
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.
