Hooking up kenwood cd player in a 2000 silverado but the wires aren't labeled coming out of the cd player. Pls help


If you use a wire harness adapter, you just have to match the colors from the Kenwood plug to the wires in the adapter. No guesswork.

Kenwood uses the CEA standard for car audio wiring:

Yellow: 12VDC constant power
Red: 12VDC key-switched power
Black: Ground
Orange/White: Illumination
Blue/White: Remote output for amp turn-on
Blue: Power antenna activation

White: Left front speaker (+)
Gray: Right front speaker (+)
Green: Left rear speaker (+)
Violet: Right rear speaker (+)

Each wire with a black stripe is a negative speaker output.

You can download owners' manuals from Kenwood's web site.

How to connect spekers


If it's your first time in this project, connecting speakers are not simple but you can learn fast. First of all, I don't know the type of speakers you have. Not all speakers are the same, even in sound they're not the same. Some sound superb, others sound just right and many sound like tin cans. Because you have a Kenwood KR-X1000, it looks like you have large speakers. To connect these large speaker you need high quality speaker cables, not cheaper low amp types. Cables for speakers are usually marked with a continuous colored line along one side the cable. This line is an orange color is the cable is 100% copper and is a clear plastic cable (you can see the braided or twisted wire inside), or it could be black plastic with a white or grey colored band on one side of the cable. The colored bands means it's positive side (+). Split the cable ends then splice about half inch and twist the exposed wire. If you have a soldering iron, solder the exposed twisted braids to make it into a single solid wire for easy insertion into the speakers.

Now, I don't know what speakers you have but it doesn't matter, as long as you are aware that there are three types of connections used to connect the wires to the speakers. One type is a snap-on, another type is a squeeze, insert the wire in and let go. This is like a clamp. Another type is the a bolt type with a hole in the shaft of the bolt. The head is usually a plastic but to hold the wire and it is the strongest. Let's say you have the bolt type used by many professional speaker makers and users. You simply unscrew the plastic nut until the hole is open, then insert the wire in the hole then screw the plastic nut back tight. do a light pull test to see if the wire might slip out. Remember that these speaker connectors are colored red and black and the wire with the colored line on sheath is positive, that is it goes into the red connector. Then on the other end of the cable bet some tape or a tie to say this is the left speaker and this is the right speaker, this is the rear speaker and this is the right speaker, so that when you connect them to the Kenwood, you will not have to check which cable goes where.

The same thing goes with the Kenwood wire connection. I am a Pioneer man, I know them well. But I just happen to know that Kenwood and many others are very similar in wire connections because I am close to a store that has these, so, it's easy for me to go there and learn the tricks of trade. However, when I was writing this, it was too late to go down and have a look and the Kenwood X1000. So, I can only say that if you looked behind the machine, you'll find it all easily set and you can't go wrong. The red is positive (+) and black is negative (-). If you have been able to wire the speakers as instructed above, then you are also able to wire the Kenwood amplifier. Split the cables and strip or splice a half inch to expose the stranded wires the twist them and solder to form a solid wire for easy insertion and to stop the little copper wires in the braid from separating themselves from the twisted group. Then insert the colored line of the cable into the positive (red) clamp, clip-on, or screw type connector, whichever your amplifier has. Insert the negative soldered wire into the black clamp, clip-on or screw type connector. Do the same with the others speakers wires, recheck the connections, paying attention to polarities and test. It should work without problems. Cheers.

Eurovox wiring diagram


The black stripes are typically the negative wires for each speaker. So your blue will go to one positive speaker output from the receiver, and the blue/black to the speakers negative.

If you want to check them manually, so that you know which speaker should connect to which wire, use the front to back fader, and left to right fader on the kenwood.

Remove the keys from the ignition, and ensure the radio is off.

Tape up all eight speaker wires coming out of the headunit with electrical tape to nothing at all.

Remove the tape from one pair of corresponding colors, and connect it to any single pair of wires that run to the speakers. Tape them separately with electrical tape.

Turn it back on, and set the fader all the way to the front and left. Listen to what speaker it's coming out of. You now know two things. Which color from the deck is the front left, and which speaker wires in the dash goto the speaker making sound.

Turn everything off, and rinse and repeat.

Even easier is to go to a sound shop where they sell harness, or buy one online. Then you just connect per the instructions and you're done. Don't forget to make good strong connections, and tape up everything well.

Good luck.

No sound


Grey is right front speaker, white is left front speaker, purple is right rear speaker and green is left rear speaker. The wires with the black stripe are speaker negative and the solid colors are speaker positive.

Hi, My friend (who has a visual impairment) moved house recently, they own a Kenwood KR - V5570, I assisted with re setting up PC etc. I am now baffled with connecting her left and right speakers to this...


If you keep guessing you may succeed in blowing something up.

The cables have RCA connectors or bare wires for a reason.

Get the manual out and read it.

Don't pay too much attention to the actual colors of speaker wire. Use the colors as reference. Each speaker has a plus and a minus. Connect them to corresponding plus and minus for their respective amplifier outputs.
