Red is "Key on Pwr"
Yellow is "Constant Hot" always powered
Black is "Ground"
Blue is "Pwr antenna or amplifier remote turn on"

This is tapping my memory a little, however, I believe stripe is positive on Kenwood and solid is negative. The easiest way to test spkr wiring is to connect your pwr,gnd,etc. then make sure all other wires are individually taped barring one. Use any speaker, turn on the radio, connect one wire to pos & one to neg on spkr, look at the cone of the speaker, if it pops out, you have the correct wiring "in phase" if it's incorrect, the spkr will appear to pop "in". That's "out of phase" reverse your wiring.

Hope that helps

Looking for a wiring schematic for a kenwood kdc-mp425 deck. I can see the speaker wires. Trying to figure out which is my constant and switched 12v wires. I have 6 other wires besides my 8 speaker ones,...


Red is usually 12v switched and yellow is constant.I have done many brands and that is the norm but I have not done Kenwoods.Here is a link though.I couldn't find yours but did find a 435.Makers usually stick with the same colors year after year so it should not be an issue.The print is small and i couldn't find a way to largen it.

This is their home page as they have many things and I use it for all sorts of stuff.

How do i connect a kenwood krc 394 radio cassette,+ve battery, eth, and speaker connections.


Head unit color code:

12V-Yellow
12V switched-Red
Ground-Black
Illumination or Dimmer-Orange/Orange w/white stripe
Blue-Power Antenna
Blue wwhite stripe-Amp turn on

Whites-FL speaker
Greys-FR speaker
Greens-RL speaker
Purples-RR speaker
(Black stripes negative)

If you have a female harness to connect to the veicle side you will pretty much color match. The only exception is that you may only have an amp turn on wire but only a power antenna on the vehicle. In this case you would connect blue w/white stripe wire from radio harness to the blue antenna wire on the vehicle side.

If you are doing a hardwire (factory plug has been cut off) you can obtain a wiring code for your vehicle at www.the12volt.com for most vehicles.

I HAVE A KENWOOD KRC-2007 CAR STEREO AND DON'T KNOW WHICH COLORED WIRE GOES TO THE LEFT AND RIGHT FRONT SPEAKERS, I THOUGHT IT WAS WHITE/WHITE BLACK AND GREY/GREY BLACK.


Hello! Front Right; + = Grey... - = Grey/White

Front Left= + = White... - = White/Black

You are correct...Perhaps you need the vehicle's colors?

If so send a comment with year, make and model...
