Sloth...

funny seeing this question posted here... I worked at Phoenix Gold for 4 years, and I can help you with your problem.

when the BassCUBE was designed, the engineers didnt realize that a standard phone cable is what we call a "flipped cable", where if you were to lay the cable flat without any twists in it, on one end the connector would be tab up, and the other end would be tab down. on a standard RJ11 plug (the phone plug), the telephone requires that the pinout is as follows:

#1 - Black
#2 - Red
#3 - Green
#4 - Yellow

But the BassCUBE needs a non-flipped cable, which are hard as heck to find... so I will give you the quick easy fix.

You need a 2-line (4-wire) telephone cable that has a black, a red, a green, and a yellow wire in side it, and you will need 4 crimp caps or other way to splice the wires back together. You then need to cut the wire in half, and carefully seperate and strip each wire on each piece of the cable. Call one piece "Part A", and the other piece "Part B". Then you need to splice the cable back together as below.

Part A Part B

Black ------------------> Yellow
Red --------------------> Green
Green -----------------> Red
Yellow ----------------> Black

Once you have done this, and your SURE that your splice is good (not shorted out), then go ahead and plug your modified cable into the BassCUBE and its remote control, power it up, and you should be good to go.

The Tone Match unit is not receiving power


If you are using the Bose ToneMatch cable (black cable - the connectors are round barrels with square connectors). Then this should work fine.


If it doesn't then try a different cable. You can use a network Cat-5 cable.
Note - if you are connecting to an L1® Model I or L1® classic then you need an T1 Power Supply.

My head unit resets settings when key is taken out


Do you have the yellow wire going to a constant 12v power source? The yellow wire controls the memory of the radio and needs to have 12v going to it at all times, even when the key is taken out of the ignition.

I understand the diagram with the +12v and the gnd wires, but does the third wire only work with other Kenwood products? It appears to be a "sense" wire or similar that feels the presence of a powered-up...


Hello davec99,

The third wire is commonly called a "remote" wire and is used to turn on other devices, such as an amp, connected to the audio system. When the equalizer is off, there's no signal on the wire. When the equalizer is on, a low current 12V signal is on the wire, signalling the remote device to turn-on.

Hope this helps.

Wired remote bass control knobs


I'm wanting to know the same thing... But be careful on the pin out of the control you get.

I have an audiobahn 2300HCQ amp... Before I had the 1800. The 1800 came with a remote with 6pin remote cord. I got the 2300 used and did not get a control for it. The plug on the 2300 is a 4 pin plug... I can't figure out how to cross it over correctly to get the 1800 remote to work on the 2300.

I have tools to crimp an end... Just can't figure out the color pin out.
