Re: Kenwood KSC-WA801

You can use a computer power supply to run this sub on your home stereo system. I've got my one of these out of my car temporarily and I've hooked it up to my system to give it a bit of extra boost while it's spare! Use the yellow 12v lines of the power supply to attach to the +12v inputs and the black ground wire for the -12v. Works a treat, and even when blasting it, the power supply I use (250W) doesn't even get hot.

Re: Kenwood KSC-WA801

If you don't mind a large car battery (and battery charger) in your living room, it will work. Another option is to get a 12 VDC power supply, capable of sourcing 100 or more amps, but that would be too costly.

I have a jvc sp-pw50 Subwoofer and i want to know if you can buy an adapter for the input so i can hook it up to my kenwood amp? my amp does have a regular audio jack

That would require you to disassemble the subwoofer cabinet and disconnect the the supplied amplifier.
Connecting this unit to a different amplifier would provide no benefit to you unless the on-board amplifier became damaged.

this is what I did and it's decent. Other way would be to run the system through a amp/receiver that supports 5.1 surround.

I need help with a system that I just bought.

Well it should be like this...Your amp is prologic which means that it has 5+1 outputs (sub out may be for active sub).Connect your speakers on specific output for each one (center,front left,front right,rear left,rear right and sub).Other devices,CD,tuner...connect to the amp with signal RCA-RCA cabels.On the back of the amp you have all marked inputs.You wasn't specific what do you want to hook?!If you want to hook this "new" to kenwood connect rec out of it to aux in on kenwood.If oposite kenwood rec out to "new" aux in.Hope that this is what you need
