Subwoofer instalation Hello, i have recently installed my jvc. I have a subwoofer that i want to install, the only problem is that the jack on the manual that says subwoofer is just an empty space where a jack should be on my jvc. I was wondering if i needed to buy an upgraded system that will recieve the subwoofer, or if i am suposed to install the jack myself by removing the back plate. thankyou, josh

Re: subwoofer instalation

Even if your JVC doesn't have outputs for a subwoofer you can hook it up with the a speaker wire to RCA converter. You just spice your rear speaker wires to this device then connect RCA's to your amp. I've used them before... works great.

I have jvc car audio model # kd-g335 how to connect my sub woofer?

You can not connect the subwoofer directly to your head unit. You need an amplifier installed to play the sub woofer. Asuming that there is an amplifier installed then: If your head unit has an RCA output on the rear, connect that to the LINE IN of your amplifier. Also there should be a Blue&White cable at the rear of the head unit.(amplifier remote) That should be connected the the remote terminal on the amplifier. (this will turn the amp on and off when the head unit turns on or off) Hope this helps. dreamsystems

Installing a new stereo. I am trying to install a ''JVC KD-R210'' in my wifes 1985 BMW 535i, replacing a Sony CDX-R79 and in the trunk is a Pioneer 12 disc cd changer that was hooked up to the system. This...

There is a line level converter that would need to be purchased to that you can get the front speakers to work with the amplifier. The stereo already has rca jacks for the rear speakers. You can connect these straight to the amplifier for it to work. Bes sure that you use the blue wire to connect to the remote turn on for the amplifiers. Once you get the line level converter you will connect the wires and connect the converter using the RCA jacks. The question would be how was the 12 disc changer connected to the system. Would need more information on the changer in order to help with that component.
