Question about Kenwood Car Speakers & Subwoofers

1 Answer

I have a Mustang GT convertible with the Shaker 1000 system. I'm installing a Kenwood DNX8120. There are 3 plugs in the back of the factory radio. I only have 2 plugs that will match the factory plugs. one plug has nineteen wires and the other plug has 2-blue/white wires and 2-audio/video jacks. I have 3 wires left over on the wiring harness that plugs into the cars factory wiring harness. 1-blue wire not marked, 1-orange/black wire marked dimmer, and 1-pink wire marked phone. I have two wires left over the on 16 wire harness that plugs into the DNX8120. 1-blue/white wire marked power control and 1-pink/black wire marked external amplifier control. There is a plug marked relay 1 and relay 2, (garage door, lighting ect.). How does that work with a garage door? I think those are my only issues. Thanks, Bill

A savvy installer can make a circuit using your garage remote (installed in the dash) or some wireless lights (with remote) and with the push of a button, your (insert item here) will function.
Depending on the voltage required, one is really just a ground, and the other is a positive trigger.

It requires a SPDT relay, and if the remote is not 12V, a resistor of the right value to lower the voltage.

Buy the wiring install kit for the car. It comes with a plug that connects to the factory radio plugs. Which ends up being a cleaner install and less headache

What kind of wire do I need to install Infinity reference series 605cs with a JL Audio 10" sub and a Alpine Flex 2 amp? Can I use my factory head unit?


You can use the factory speaker wiring for the Infinity speakers you should purchase a amp kit which will give you everything to install the amp. See site below

Well that all depends on the current audio system you have now is it just a basic or a premium factory system with a factory amp. Honestly you would get a better and cleaner sound if you change the factory head unit to a after market one which has preamp feeds and the higher the preout volt the better. Just make sure it is compatible with the amp volts input (Example 4v to 250mv) If you use the factory headunit you would have to by a high to preout adapter it connects to the exsiting radios speaker leads, but like I said before change the head unit you won't be sorry. Do not forget if you change the radio you need a radio install kit and the wiring harrness which converts the two radio plugs so you don't cut them so down the road you can remove the after market radio and just replug the factory right back in.

Hi Lo Adapters
Hi/Low adapters are devices that installers use to convert a speaker level stereo to RCA levels so it can be hooked to an external car stereo amplifier. You can cut the speaker wires and hook the hi/lo adapter right up or you can tap onto existing speaker wires without cutting them so the speakers still play while the tap gives you a connection to the hi/lo device for adding something like a subwoofer amp to the existing speakers.... We have hi lo converters in TWO CHANNEL and FOUR CHANNEL configurations and we have them WITH and WITHOUT adjustments.. The adjustable hi/lo converters allow you to fine tune the hi/lo device to match other levels in the car or to make sure the match between your stereo and amplifier is a good match.. The adjustable line converters are the most popular.. We also have some specialty hi lo converters that have special radio plugs on them that may plug right into your factory stereo.
Now you can install an amplifier with your factory radio or install a new radio with your factory amplifier!

I'm tryin to change my rear speakers in a 2005


Hi.i cant help you with the rear dash but the speakers are my expertise. They are 6x8 in the front and back without the shaker 500 or 1000 system. If you have the shaker 500 or 1000 it will still be 6x8.

Installing self amplified sub to factory stereo


Hello Jax GS300,

Yes, you can use RCA cables. Just wire in a "low-level" converter.

Using RCA's is really the best way, allowing you to run shielded wiring to the sub, making it less likely that the wiring will pick up electrical interference. I'd install the converter on the rear speaker wires behind the dash.

If you do not want to convert the speaker output, you can drive the Kenwood directly from the speaker wires. The diagram in the install manual shows the connections coming off the rear speakers.

Here's a link to one output converter. This one will convert all 4 speakers.

Hope this helps.

Intermittent problem no sound


Double and triple check your connections. I soldered my connections on a speaker a little while ago and I found out that it only looked soldered and it was alittle loose and would cut out. Also you could check a site out, installdr.com. You should be able to find out the wire colors for you speakers there. Although I don't think that, that will cause a big problem. If you are listening to music at loud volumes, I would also recomend an aftermarket amplifier. It adds so much more that a factory amp can. Just food for thought. Good luck.
