Question about Kenwood KSC-WA100 Car Subwoofer

Connector Pin Out

I no longer have the harness for my subwoofer so I've decided I will make a new harness by soldering wires to the leads inside the amp. I need to know the pinout of the connector. Does anyone have that information?? I believe the 2 pins to the right when looking at the back of the subwoofer are power, but I'm not sure. Thanks!

No audio even though sterio wires are all connected

My 1997 Alpine CDE-7828's wiring schematic doesn't disclose one important thing for many older and possibly even some newer sterios (aka 'head units'). If all wires are connected per the sterio's schematic andf sound is missing, you probably have a dedicated pin on yout vehicle's harness/connector that will read something like 'Turn-on AMP signal", <br />until you jumper the ignition hot lead (between the harness plug and your sterio) to your vehicle's 'Turn-on AMP signal' pin/connector wire (add a wire if none is supplied in your vehicle's connector), you won't get any sound even though all the other wires are connected per your head unit''s instructions.

It sounds like you need the vehicle side of the harness. Before you go hardwiring the radio, I recommend you visit a couple of websites, scosche and PAC. Sometimes they have the vehicle side of the harness available. Please do this before you fry your electrical system. Hope this helps

Looking for instruction to operate an Alpine MDA-W905JB head unit in a Japanese car I just bought.

Go to the store and buy a mounting kit and wiring harness adapter that are for your car. There are alot to choose from and most are universal and come with instructions. You can get these at wal-mart or best buy. The mounting kit is meant to fill in the empty space left by the new aftermarket radio (your alpine). The alpine will have a metal sleeve around it. take this off and put it in the mounting bracket so it is flush. The sleeve will have little triangle shaped tabs on it. Bend these out so the sleeve cant fall out of the bracket or someone will be able to pull out your radio. Remove your stock radio by pulling off the trim around the radio. This is held on by clips, so be careful. There will be a couple of screws holding in the radio. Remove these and pull the radio out. Behind the radio there will be 1 or 2 wiring harnesses plugged into the radio. Unplug these. Then attach the wiring harness adapters you bought. These plug into the stock harness and have wires at the other end that are labeled. Wire the alpine wiring harness into the harness adapters that you plugged into the stock harness. If you want to you can unplug the harness from the alpine and wire it to the harness adapter before plugging it into the stock harness. The wiring diagram should be on the radio. If not the colors are pretty common.
There may be RCA jack inputs in the back and these are for the subwoofer amp.
There will be a large black cable in the back and this is the antenna wire. Plug in the antenna wire from the back of the stock radio here. Yu may or may not need an adapter for this depending on the size difference between the wire and the hole it plugs into.
**Please note: if your car has a "premium" sound system that comes stock with an amplifier you will need to attach the power antenna lead from the alpine to the remote turn on lead on the harness adapter. If not when you turn on the radio/cd it will not turn on the stock amplifier and the speakers will not work.
I found this out with my 99 dodge avenger which has an Infinity stock radio. You can pop the trunk and look up at the back dash and see the small amplifier.
Once the radio is wired and the mounting bracket is installed, connect the harness adapter as well as the antenna wire. The new wiring harness adapter makes the wiring a little longer so you may have to stuff them back a little bit. Connect the harness from the alpine back into the back of the radio and slide the head unit into the metal sleeve until you hear a click. Before sucuring the mounting bracket and putting the trim back on it is a good idae to try the radio out so if there is something wrong you dont have to disassemble it again. When you buy the harness and bracket it will say on the packaging "nissan 84-94" or "Honda 83-99" or something similar. Look on the back for a complete list of compatable models.

Hope this was helpful. Please rate, and thanks!

I have two kicker 10s cvr and the wires came off from the inside,from speaker to the connecter? are they worth fixen there not blown just wires came off. There 10 months old

They are soldered on at the factory. There are times that the soldering job isn't done perfectly. If you do end up re-soldering them there may be an insulation covering the leads that will need to be burned off the lead. The insulation is the discoloration on the lead. When you do this, hold onto the lead with a weak pair of needle nose pliers to reduce a potential failure later.

My wire got pulled off my sub how can i fix it

Hello gatmanfromda,

I'm assuming you mean the "tinsel" lead going from the connector to the sub cone. In many cases, the wire can be soldered back on. It takes care and patience and you need to be sparing with the solder and prevent it from stiffening the tinsel lead. Otherwise it will tear out again when the sub cones moves out. If the cone itself was damaged when the lead pulled off, you can use silicone sealant to repair it. Again, be sparing with the silicone and allow it 24 hours to set up before trying to operate the sub. If the wire pulled off from the connector terminal, just solder it back on.

Hope this helps.

Where do you buy the 10 pin connector

I used a computer power cable (the one that plugs into your IDE HDD) and soldered the male end onto the circuit board. Sorted :)

Subs cutting out

Agree with Kev. Even if the woven lead wire looks ok, it can still be bad. I unsoldered it, clipped a lil from both ends, and re-soldered it. Works great now.
